The increased hard drive capacity, along with price drop, has made ps3's demand sky-rocket. Everyone wants one!

They're largely sold out, everywhere. I'm running into the same problem. I've heard estimates for delivery anywhere from a week to a month, depending on where you're looking. I do think that you can buy directly from the Sony Style website, but I was less than impressed with their shipping costs. There are also mutiple bidding sites advertising PS3 120gb Slim for auction...if you're waiting out Best Buy, though, they're usually pretty quick. I'd bet on about a week in your area.

Yes, start by simply creating a user account on your new ps3.
(this user can be named anything).

when creating the playstation network username to be used with that account, instead of choosing "create new" - simply choose "use existing account".

enter your account information that you have used in the past on modern warfare.

lastly, start up the game, choose online, and when it connects to the infinity ward servers, your previous stats and unlocks will be given to you.

You need to save your profile/game data to a USB flash drive (USB ports on front of counsel) and then copy them into your saved game data folder on your new PS3. I believe COD MW will let you copy saved data. Killzone won't. It depends on the game permissions.

Yes good luck. Mine also crashed and I have been waiting for over a month to get mine replaced. All I keep getting told is call back on Wednesdays and Fridays because that is when they get shipments at my bestbuy anyway, so far no luck. I just recently got told MAYBE by the end of the month or beginning of next month. So we shall see, I won't hold my breath though. GOOD LUCK TO US ALL

Question

unit will not eject

My son has had his PS3 for less than 30 days, we just set him up with the on line access and now his console will not eject the game that is in it, and he cannot access the ps home to play the game either. We have tried turning the unit off and on, nothing has worked. Called Best Buy they said that is all that they knew to do. Was wondering if anyone else has had this problem ? Guy at Geek Squad said it was fairly common. Unit is being returned, but now of course I can't find another one to replace it with. Any other ideas ?

Call your local Best Buy, they may be able to exchange. If they do, make sure to get the Protection Plan they offer. If something like that happens again and you have that plan, they will exchange it with no problems.

Turn the playstation off using the power switch on the back, then press and hold the eject button and then turn on the playstation using the power switch on the back again. The fans should start up really loud and eject the game IF the unit still works I have no idea what it will do but a broken unit will fire off eject the disk and shut back down after ten or twenty seconds.

Try to find one that has wi-fi built in and has features such as Pandora, Youtube, and netflix. I believe there are also some that have facebook on them now. With facebook you are only able to look at facebook content you are not able to make changes or comment on people profiles.

A few different models you might want to look into are:

BDC6500XAA by Samsung,
BD570 by LG (does not have youtube or facebook)
BD-C6900XAA by Samsung (has blockbuster online & twitter is also compatible with the new 3D tv's)
BD590 by LG

some of the new blue ray players that have 3d ready technology because they will work with the next generation tv's comes with netflix,bluckbuster,pandora, and other benefits like quick loading. make sure it has wifi built in.. they cost about or a little more than a ps3 but you obviously can't play games. Just wait if you can for shipments to replenish.

They are not necessary for the PS3 to connect to your television. If you would like to get High Definition graphics and sound however they are necessary.
If you have a non HDTV and just got your PS3 for the great game selection it offers than the standard cables will do. If you have an HDTV and got your PS3 for it’s Blu-ray capability as well as the games then you do need HDMI cables.

Refurbished means that someone has previously owned the system and Bestbuy touched it up. It should still be in good to great condition.

If you are talking about the PS3 Slim, then no it does not have backward compatibility. A few discontinued PS3 Fats are able to play PS2 games though.

Not only will you have more room for game saves, but if you buy games, movies or tv shows through the PSN there will be plenty of room for them as well. Some games require a certain amount of Hard Drive space(Devil May Cry and Metal Gear Solid 4 for example), so having that space helps out alot.
