The Best Games Console, Or Is It?
The Sony PlayStation has been one of the most popular game consoles since its first version release, and it is Sonys best console yet, but, since its launch of PS3 praises and complaints have never stopped.
Of course the PlayStation 3 is filled with numerous outstanding features and delivers the most features for the money, with built-in wireless networking support, allowing many games to be played online, the PS3 also includes a Blu-Ray player, HD movies are released in the Sony Blu-Ray format, and the disc drive in the console is by default a Blu-Ray player, furthermore the PlayStation 3 is the only console that comes with a Blu-Ray player.
Some other games consoles require users to pay a subscription fee to use online features, which needs to be renewed annually, but the PlayStation Network is a free service with no hidden costs for playing online games.
While the PS3 gives great audio-visual enjoyment to gamers, it can also bring problems. The most reported of these problems are YLOD (yellow light of death), freezing, not reading disc, no video, so many gamers around the world equip themselves with the do-it-yourself manual and take advice from other gamers to have a go at fixing their consoles.
The obvious solution would be to return your console to Sony for a PlayStation 3 repair fix, but if you are an avid gamer you will not be able to stand the long time without your wonderful friend. Firstly the console will have to be packaged very carefully and safely and will cost you serious money to post, and to top it all, it will probably be a 4 to 6 week wait before you get back to gaming and the fun of pitting your wits against the enemy.
While many, many owners of a PS3 will go down the route of the do-it-yourself method and probably get it fixed, the question you have to ask yourself is, will the problem come back and, more importantly, have you done more harm than good.
Like anything do-it-yourself you have to know what you are doing, especially with a device so complex and technical, sometimes for the price of a repair done fast and efficiently, it just is not worth the hassle of taking on something that you are reading up on step by step.
