2nd ps3 super slim. Brand new out of box not reading discs.

29 replies 3332 views Edited Nov 25, 2012

Seriously am I having the worst luck on the planet or what? I turn on the brand new system. I do the updates to 4.31 it says. System will not read discs. 2nd ps3 in 24 hours. Returned the 1st one this morning. Makes no sense at all. I am seeing people all over the internet saying its because of the 4.31 firmware update? I have done all the system restore options. Ont he first ps3 I even ran the FULL REFORMAT. Which DOES NOT remove the firmware update 4.31....

 

So are the new ps3 super slims just garbage or what?

Or is this because of Sonys fail firmware?

To add to this.

 

First ps3 played tekken 2 for an hour. Went to bed. Woke up and updated the ps3. Played tekken tag 2 for 1 hour. Game froze as i beat the last boss and my ps3 stopped reading discs. I did EVERYTHING to fix this system that sony asked me to do. No fix so they told me to take it back. Took the ps3 back and got my money back.

 

Despite my warnings to my gf about how the interwebs is saying the ps3s are garbage right now due to 4.31 SHE buys ANOTHER ps3.

This new ps3 i decide to update to 4.31 before playing any game. Guess what. Disc reader wont read games again. Good times.

 

Worst purchase ever. Leat now my girlfriend understands why I am a pc gamer.

It's just that youve made a number of Threads & posts all of which are negative, all saying the PS3 Super-Slim is rubbish, how the disc drives are all failing & how apparently your Walmart has a 30% return rate, it's all negative, every post.

 

Prove me wrong & I'll come back & apologize to you, but right now I'll stick to my original assumption.
