    My friend recently bought a new slimline pstwo and it works fine, we played GTASA for hours without a laser burnout. When i went with my friend to buy the pstwo, the sales man said that Sony has fixed the laser problem. Can anyone confirm this for me? I plan to buy one soon...

    They may have fixed the problem but unauthorized dealers may still be carrying old stock. You can check the manufacturing date on the packaging to see how old the stock is.

    When I use the term "old stock" I'm referring to the first batch of PSTwos that were shipped before the recent laser upgrade.

    so how can i tell if they are old stock or not? do i ask the salespersons and expect them to answer my question honestly instead of say "yea they are" without event thinking about it?
