    My Ps 3 just died in the middle of playing live08. No power at all. is there any way to take the game out manually? Worst part about it the game belongs to blockbuster. I guess I have to pay for the game if it can't be taken out. Anyways does anyone know How long for Sony to replace unit?

    Wow that sucks ass. So it won't let you eject the disk at all? Tell blockbuster what happened and they might understand..

    There's always an emergency way to eject a disc from an optical drive--for this reason. Just like our drives on our computers, there's that little hole that you can use to manually eject the tray/disc. Look it up in the manual that came with the PS3. If I wasn't lazy, or if I knew where it was lol, I'd look it up for you.

    Blockbuster offers you the grace period anyway. If you're beyond that, you can still hold it for up to like a month and then return it. You'll be reimbursed minus about $1.50. It's a very good deal if you rent games lol.

    So I just had a thought. I have a 60GB PS3 and I have not had any issues with it. If my 60GB broke, what will Sony replace it with? The 60GB is the better version as it still have the RSX chip and Emotion engine in it and the 80GB is software emulation. My point is if my fully loaded car broke will the manufacturer give me the economy version due to the fully loaded version is no longer in production?!?

    No they have to issue you with the same version as your original or possibly send you an 80gig one.

    Yes they will return the game as well. Clan member on call of duty had his ps3 do the same thing with COD$ in it. When he got his ps3 back they had also shipped him his COD4 back

    I'm going to write down my serial numbers before I send it in. Just to check when I get it back to see if it's the same..

    I think I may have to send in mine also. Im having that blueray disk issue I think. I have assasins creed but I am also getting issue with reading all blueray disks. It seems as if it will read it but the lil indicator at the top right comes up and then goes away, but the disk to select the game or blueray movie doesnt come up. As soo as I place a normal dvd or PS2 game, it comes up to select the disk. As of right now even deleting all the game data utilities for all my games doesnt allow me to read a ps3 game or blueray movie. Im getting frustrated and will hate to have to sned in my ps3. I have the 60g also. I have this so call one year warranty with Gamestop and I can take it back to get it exchanged. I have till February though so I may try to hold out, but I cant play a ps3 game or blueray now and its been the longest now that it haset worked. usually I can do what I stated above and the disk would show up to select, but I actuall had to take a step away from it and got on here so I wont through it out the window.......I may just go exchange it and if that one screws up I will send to sony.
