Upon further invest, it seems like this is the Yellow Light Of Doom that is apparently somewhat common to the PS3. I don't know what my next move will be.

Yes, they kind of overdid the PS3 with the cell processor and BluRay. The first version was very heavily subsidized by games. Production price was estimated at 800$. Now they are supposed to be down to about 240$, but maybe they cut a bit much at some corners. Break even was estimated last year.
It's about time for a new generation in my opinion. Computer games start to get held back by these failing things.

Finished FONV. Not sure where to go next. back to FO3, another round of this or ME2.

I can only say with certainty it won't be COD BO. My nine year old just schooled me on that one in split screen.

I'm liking the PS3 for the BluRay, and the games I want to play are mostly like GTA4, Red Dead Revolver, maybe Black Ops, etc. However, the PS3 is starting to look long in the tooth to me. I don't keep up on video game news, if I buy a PS3 in the next few months are they going to release PS4 over Christmas?

If the initial PS3 sales and even GT5's release times are any indication, the PS4 will take a much longer time to come out than the Xbox 720 will.

All done with New Vegas. It was okay, I guess, but no Fallout 3. Time to try something else.

Is Assassin's Creed any good?

Assassin's Creed and Fallout are my favorite two series. The gameplay of AC gets a little repetitive but the storyline is pretty great.

So I found a guy here in town that's done a lot of console repairs, he said that it's only the more recent games that seem to cause the problem, that is the board that holds the processor that does the graphics apparently distorts due to localized heat and a new type of solder that sucks.
Whatever, he said he'll fix it for $80 but recommends that a repaired machine not be used for some games.

Played it when it came out. I liked the really big maps & having to correct for bullet drop at range. Always fun jumping in a tank.
Didn't like that it was very hard to hide as a sniper. You just didn't seem to blend into cover. I think there was also something about the kit customization I didn't care for, but I don't recall exactly.

Hairbear, in bf2 if you play in hardcore mode they cant put an icon on you, and in this mode its alot more realistic, 3-4 shots verus half a clip. 1 shot with a .50 calibar sniper rifle. I love the tank and vehicles in the game. there are 9 more maps available too. You could pick it used for cheap now.
