FANBOYS/GIRLS please do not flame or start a mini-war here, OK?
Ah, yes the sidebar, I'm a 19 year old muslim gamer from the eternal place of sunshine(yeah,right) Manchester, England. I've been gaming since I was six and probably spent more hours gaming than doing anything else my enitre life, being the proud owner of a launch day playstation. Though owning only a PS3, I love my mate's 360 and if XBL ever becomes free, I'll pick a 360 up, until then, I'm doing fine with my PS3. Despite the hardcore gaming, I work out, eat healthily and have a thing for fashion and believe a man should always look good, stay clean, and stay in shape. So I'm most definitely not your stereotypical gamer. I try to be as chilled, nice and laid back as possible, I'm up for serious discussion, but not of 'TEH C0NS0LE WARZ, YO!!' type. There are much more important things in life than humping a piece of technology, or hating someone, hating anything, anyone without just reasoning, just fucking sucks in my opinion, seeing as I'm an optimist.
I'm also a film-lover of all genres, all languages. I love to read and listen to most types of music, whatever makes me feel happy. Be it Alternative, Hip-Hop, Rap, R 'N' B, Dance, House, Techno, Acid Jazz, Jazz, Electronica, J-Pop, J-Rock, Punk, Funk, or the phenomenal, ageless soundtrack of Tekken 3, I'll listen to the songs over and over again. Finally, I'm currently studying Television and Radio Production at Salford university and making firm steps to, hopefully, become one of the best film directors in the world, srsly. Thanks for reading this, and have a kick-ass day.

So, after waking up and deciding to take a dump for half-hour, whilst playing Phoenix Wright (I wanted to get up but my arse kept shouting OBJECTION!!! and making me sit back down, eating lots of meat makes for huge poopies) I decided to play on the PS3. I had free time and thought, why not take a quick spin of PS Home,
'What, are you that desperate and stupid, go fuck a donkey and /wrist yourself', might be the very thing running through your head at this moment in time. It's partially true to the is situation, I didn't want to have intercourse with a donkey, but I did want to /wrist myself after what happened next.
I booted up Home from the XMB bar and noticed it needed a update, oh cool I thought, maybe it's the one with the shrinking potion, and the game launching feature that makes Home dangerously close to being relevant. So after 30 seconds or so, the update was downloaded and I looked forward to shrinking my digital self, oh man, I was wrong.
Just after the press start screen, it froze on initialising, not even the XMB button worked, so a reset was in order. ‘Ok, just a minor hitch, let’s try that again’, went through my mind.
Initialising again………………………………. bam, froze, same gig, had to reset it.
I wanted to shoot demons with my boomstick at this point.
But, the third time, that was a doozy. The reset button didn’t work, even after a minute of putting my finger on top of it. Needless to say I was pretty worried, and thought I kinda bricked my PS3, but I had to turn it off and boot it back up. Luckily all my stuff was safe. At this point I decided pulling out my own eyeballs, cooking and then eating them were far more preferable to loading up Home and running the risk of wiping out my hardrive.
I have a 40 gig PS3, so maybe this issue is to do with the mode, or the crappy servers PS Home is on, regardless, be wary of installing the new update for it, I certainly don’t want other people putting up with the dire possiblilty of damaging your PS3 over Home.
Maybe you had the same problem, I dunno, but thanks for reading this heads up, now a song for y’all to enjoy:
