TyrantII: UNC_Samurai: GOOD farkING RIDDANCE!!!*

*Please note: This is intended solely for the 30000 and 35000 "Fat PS2 models". Your stupid farking screw assembly on the laser meant the machine had an almost 100% failure rate, Sony. I can't tell you how many people brought those things into my store (ran an EB/Gamestop in 2005-07). It didn't matter if it came back from the company HQ as a "refurb" - 30k and 35k models went straight in the defective pile. It was always the same story - After a few weeks, PS2 games wouldn't read. Then DVDs. Then finally PS1 games wouldn't read.

The "Slim" PS2s - 50000 and up - were gorgeous, however. I just wish they'd figured out a way to connect a hard drive to the slim model.

Thankfully, we'll never have to worry about retarded memory cards ever again.

History repeats itself. "Phat" PS3's are dead or dying because of tin solder wiskers and a very under-engineered heat dissipation system. They can get up to 90-100C, pop the top and it's all crappy aluminum heat sinks with a tiny bit of copper and one huge fan. Burn baby, burn!

The slims are much better designed, and run much, much cooler. But if you have a Phat, the first good trade in deal you see, do it. Went through two Phats before I wised up. Luckily I traded in my working YLOD unit and grabbed a slim for a nice $100 instead of $350.

I have a launch 20GB PS3 that is still running. Eventually it will YLOD, and I'll pay to get it fixed, because I really like having a PS3 that plays PS2 games.

The PlayStation 2 was the worst system ever.  In my opinion, the top-rated systems are:

1) Xbox 360 with Kinect, which brings interactive entertainment into my home like no other, whether I'm searching for cooking recipes with Bing, watching Gangnam Style on YouTube, talking to my friends on Facebook, or playing Call of Duty: Black Ops II on Xbox Live.  Wow.  What a lineup.  We're moving Xbox into the future.  Soon, you'll be able to follow along with all your favorite television shows, movies, and games by using SmartGlass, a revolutionary new way to watch your favorite shows.  Allow me to demonstrate.  Xbox.  Xbox Bing.  Movies.  Harry Potter.  Play movie.  Confirm.  Wow.  How amazing like that?  It's experiences like these that will make Microsoft products the forerunner of home entertainment.
