Hello everyone, thank god its Friday...
On Wednesday my PS3 switched itself off mid game, and hasn't come back to life since..
In outside my warranty 2 - year old 40gb console (upgraded to 320gb). So i phoned Sony and its £128 to replace my console, for a refurbished model of the same spec, what a rip off... And its only for a 3month warranty, however I heard on AVforums that you can haggle and get away with a 1 year warranty, which I did after 30 minutes of haggling with a supervisor..
My main problem is that I haven't backed up my data on it since i upgraded the hardrive, over 2 months ago :-( im gutted.... i use play tv, so all my tv, had lots of films and almost a 1000 pics.
Ive read on the net that there is no way to get stuff off my hardrive now, as if i try and place it in an external caddy it will reformat, and if i place it in my new ps3 it will reformat... just double checking if anyone know's any different??
So what would you lot do? Buy a new ps3 slim for £250, i know some one who works in ASDA, so can get 10% off, works out £225. Or go ahead with the £128 replacement?? and then im stuck with 2, 1 good and 1 faulty!!
Thanks for your help, sorry for moaning, just frustrating that i can't do anything but give money to Sony....
