Hello. I'm having an issue with my PS3 Slim recently, and I wanted to see if anyone might have some tips.

I was playing Borderlands 2 recently when the game locked up. I did what I normally do for hard locks. I held down the power button, restarted the system, ejected the game, and just called it a night.

Now, the PS3 will read DVDs, the streaming options (Netflix and YouTube) works, but when I put in a game or Blu-ray movie the system sits for a few seconds, and makes the eject noise, without ejecting the disc. I've tried a few suggestions online that didn't see to work. The only one I've yet to try is the System Restart.

I want to copy my saved game data to a USB before trying that one. I just wanted to ask if anyone has had a similar issue, before trying something so drastic and having to re-download all my DLC and digital games.

I think Netflix already tried a GAME OF THRONES-esque show with their MARCO POLO series. It wasn't all that great.

I would be more interested in a CG-animated ZELDA show.

I'm not sure which part I find more disturbing about this. That even a single person thought of this idea and followed through with it, or that it's been happening enough to have a colloquial nickname. Sort of akin to that ridiculous trend a few years back where people were putting vodka directly into their eyes to get drunk.

ABC News even did story on the topic

This is just confusing. They had weeks before E3 to hear from people about many of these policies. Think of all the hours they spent in creating those video presentations. Days later, they pull it all back. They never really even made a case for why people should go with these changes. This had to of been far more than just "listening to feedback". They saw the numbers on something big that didn't look good and panicked. You don't invest the time and money into developing these systems and just drop them without a big reason.

I'm a little disappointed that they're backing off their stance. I was never going to buy an XBOX One, or an XBOX of any kind. I was looking forward to seeing how devastating the sales were going to be this holiday season. Poeple were naturally going to go with a system that was less restrictive and cost less.

@oginor: You can't use pre-sales as a factor of sales strength. That's the same mistake as the Wii U and the Vita. When Microsoft has their own PR guy going out there and telling military members not to buy the XBOX One because of the 24 hr. check. That's going to bite them in the asa.

@sdharrison:

Price will be a huge point, but what if the XBOX One comes out first? This should be an interesting sales number year.

@bell_end:

I actually have to wonder about all the people who don't follow all the news on systems. How many will actually buy the XBOX One with no idea of all the restrictions it will have? We could see people buying and returning once they learn that.
