My brother had that one...it's nearly 30 years old now

If you or anyone else want any games or parts I'm headed to the retro game store here another time before I leave and can check it out. If your by that stretch of 81 in WV I could even drop em off on my way home.

Won't read discs anymore. Maybe 1 out of 10 times you put a game in you can play it.

As for Blu ray movies, they don't even register.

Had my old one for 5 years, gave it to my kid and a few months later it was broken.
Hate to spend the money on another PS3 this soon.
My PS3 did the same thing a few weeks back. I took it apart and used my shop vac on the DVD drive. It's been working ever since then. I've got a couple of dogs who seem to create a third dog every few days with the excess hair. I figure more than a trivial amount of hair/dust must have gotten in the player. Give yours a good cleaning, it can't hurt.

I'll have to try that, not going to hurt anything as it's only working part time now.
Thanks

It was time to pay the biannual country living methhead burglary tax today. Kicked in the basement door, and hit the man cave first. They grabbed a bag and loaded the xbox and all assorted controllers, games, kinect etc, in it. Came upstairs, and set it down on the counter to ransack the kitchen cabinets and bedrooms. They grabbed all the electronics, jewelry boxes, and change jars, one flatscreen tv and took off. They left the xbox on the counter.
Police came by to take fingerprints and decided to just take the whole bag of stuff back to be checked for prints in a better environment. I resisted as last time, the stuff they took for evidence collecting I didn't get back for six months. They promised to work on it right away, and promised I would have it back no later than Friday. So no skyrim this week.

Even the thieves didn't want your Xbox.

Anybody use their Golden Key yet?

I've got 4 Golden Keys now so I'm tempted to use one when I hit Level 25 just to satisfy my curiousity.

i used mine right off. it was a pretty nice weapon. i got it when i was leve l5 and used it through level 17, when i finally found a yellow rarity weapon to replace it.

overall, though, i think if i get any more, i'll keep them till i beat the game.

I've got a bad habit of hoarding rare items and such in games. I get to the end with all this stuff and in hindsight wished I had used it earlier on in the game. I can't stop doing it. I always think I'll need it later and never do.
