Considering the timing, it’s somewhat funny that my PS3 up and died Saturday morning. You see, it was moments after I received an email telling me my PlayStation 4 had been shipped from Amazon.
Must have been a broken heart or something.
What’s awkward about the break down is the fact that my PS3 titles are useless with the PS4. And even more upsetting is the fact Grand Theft Auto 5 is not likely to be ported over to the next-gen platform and I was only a portion of my way through the story. So I’m left with a quandary – what do I do?
Having looked a bit into the issue, it seems that the blu-ray has up and bought it. While blu-ray discs are “recognized” to be inserted, the actual title never loads and that I’m told is a tell-tale symptom of a laser issue. While I could go out and repair the console, the average cost seems to be $100 which is essentially half the price of a new one. And then there’s the fact my brand spanking new PS4 arrives tomorrow.
So what would you do if you were me?
