If you look at the top of the gaming forum you'll see stickies that cover teardown of both fat and slim as well as changing thermal paste.

On my second PS3 in the last few years. Had YLOD on my last one. I tried everything from the hair dryer to the oven to re flow the solder. Nothing worked. I am looking forward to the PS4.

Re: Ps4

Be aware that someone is using the gamer tag Playstationaward and sending messages through the Playstation 4 to people. It states " Thank you for being a loyal customer and fan of the Playstation Network. As a token of our appreciation, we've sent you $20.00 to spend on the PlayStation Store! Visit the link below to redeem your credit. www.sonynetwork.co.nf Code expires 12/15/2013" This is a hack scam. Unfortunately I fell for it. The website is a complete duplicate of the Legitimate PlaystationNetwork Web Page. When you type your sign on and password they capture your keystroke. The page never actually lets you log in. Next thing you know you are getting an email in your email account linked to your Playstation network from sony saying you changed your password. Of course you never did though. Then within a day or so you realize you cant log into your Playstation Network account on the PS4.

I called sony and was able to reset my password. I explained to them the situation and provided some details of my original account. Of particular I stated that it appeared that someone has hacked the Playstation Network in order to obtain peoples gamer tags and message them through the PS4. They did not like this comment and followed with it is my responsibility to safeguard my account and future violations could result in my account being permanently suspended.

Keep in mind I have had the ps2 ps3 and now the ps4 and Never Ever had any issues in which I had to call Sony. My account has always been the same with them...email address/gamer tag etc. Furthermore they emailed me a survey to take in regard to my trouble call. It started Hi Ryan......hello Sony...hint hint...my name is Phil as has always been listed on my account.

Re: Ps4

That sounds just like a big corporation.

You give them some information and they immediately hide behind
what is your responsibility vs mine.

I have the PS3 and while it is a better console than the 360 their
online experience and the hacking issues leaving me on Xbox live
versus the Sony network.

I've been looking at the PS4 as I do not want or need Kinect. And
at the moment MS is determined to add a $100 paperweight to their
console.

If they give you the ability to run the console without it, why not
give you the ability to buy it without it?

I preordered both consoles and I must recommend XB1. The potential for growth is readily apparent and the Kinect has been absolutely phenomenal! I literally use it constantly where my PS4 gets occasional use (for now). I figured most of my gaming will be on XB1 and the PS4 will be for the must have single player exclusives.

I'd have to agree with you on the PS4 lacking several things compared to what the PS3 provides media wise. Keep in mind that when the PS3 was first introduced many of the current features were patched in via updates and we can expect the same with the PS4.

I heard there was no MP3 support either. And backward compatibility wont be possible due to the fact that Sony chose to use AMD instead of an Updated IBM Cell BBE and custom nVIDIA Video Chips.

Naaa... buy local and save your dealer's showroom from permanent extinction!
