Ok, it's half an hour from the Eastern seaboard bastards being able to get their copy - and I have to admit, this is the first time in forever I've been legitimately jealous about something so petty.  :der:

My PS3 is dead and I don't feel inclined to replace it with the PS4 right around the corner :irked:
Holding out hope that there is a PS4 version some time soon.

No great hurry to get a PS4 unless GTA5 was announced for it. Seems to be enough tidbits of info floating around to suggest it will happen but when? I don't know. I just don't want to go and spend up on a PS3 only to turn around a month later for a PS4.

What is wrong with your PS3????

The old yellow light of death. Probably solder cracking on one of the main chips. This is a launch day console so I got a good run from it.

Ah bugger - I have done a lot of research into YLOD. I can fix just about any other problem with them.


I can fix the YLOD but the process takes about 5 hours so not worth it now days. The GPU is the cause and gets microscopic cracks in the BGA. You can reflow the motherboard but it's pretty hit and miss. I desolder the GPU and reball the BGA with leaded solder which we can still use here. China uses unleaded solder and that's what causes the cracks. Well, that and the fact the older PS3 consoles have very inadequate cooling.....

I would happily go out and buy myself a copy but I'm pretty sure my Xbox is dead.

I'll just wait for the PC version I spose.
