100% correct. ps3 is garbage but im determined to find out why 2 ps3 slims arent reading discs. If thats not garbage to you idk what is lol. but hey keep posting uncostructive posts that dont pertain to the topic at all. Well done lol


 did you  activitae everything 1st before you  popped a disk in.. the super slim is far from garbage..  the majority  of them already  come updated  from my understanding. But if you  did  do a update you shouldntt be having problems.

 

 i suggest keep the ps3 off the rug and off the floor  activate everything read the manual 1st before you do anything.. some product might just  be faulty . hey look I once bought new  bmw and it  broke down   on the highway  from the place i bought it the same exact day. That doesnt  mean bmw is garbage, Some products are  just  faulty .  Instead of going back to that place you bought it go some where else. Maybe its the place you bought it from  handling and care fault.

 

Alot of time they  are throwing boxes off  the  truck in the  store in the back of the place, they dont care its the holiday season  fast pace enviroment,. Try buying somewhere else.  Also try telling the   person at sony over the  phone where you bought  and let  them  know what going  from that store, file a complaint at that store as well .. 

 

Btw i got another bmw from the factory  at the end of that week, no miles :smileyhappy:

I actually had to return my first Super slim  the drive kept spinning up to like 4X the RPM it was supposed to and the system kept freezing.  On #2 now and all has been well thus far.  That said i do agree the 30% is a load of bull..that approaches the RROD rate on 360 and you saw how much attention that got.  If the new superslims were hitting even 10% it would be all over media and gaming websites.  It could be perhaps that one walmart got a really bad UPS driver with their last shipment?  As after returning #1, #2 has been perfectly fine for quite some time now.  Before that any model i have purchased never failed i just like getting the newest model constantly so i sold/traded them out.

 

P.S Ironically my defective #1 was also purchased at a Walmart..makes you wonder the link between minimum wage employees and handling of expensive electronics?

it's not just walmart,i remember when i worked at UPS back in 2000 2001 and i worked specifically in the Gateway computer shipment area and we would literally throw them things around like they was invincible but there was no way you could have baby handled the things or you would have been out of the job not meeting your quota..

 

i know several people that work at Amazon in Lexington KY. and they do the exact same thing with all kinds of goods..so it's pretty safe to say this happens everywhere..lol

I've only bought one super slim, got it from amazon so it had to endure shipping, and it has been running like a champ. It was even left on for about 3 weeks straight downloading dlc and games and just simply forgot to turn it off a few times , and it runs better than my regular slim. I know some people think it's ugly and hate the diskdrive, but I actually like it's looks and the Diskdrive.

Walmart employees tended to purposefully mishandle all sort of items because they are overworked and underpaid.

Plenty of videos proving that.

this is why I simply don't shop at walmart and support my local businesses.
