So I'm a huge clumsy idiot and dropped my Ps3 while in transit to the Girlfriend's house. It is a (near) launch
60 gb triple (full backwards compatability).

It seems that I have a few options:

1. Fork out the $150 to get mine (possibly) fixed. When it dropped, no outside physical damage happened,
but the mount that holds the outside faceplate solid to the torx screw holding it down broke so it slides freely
up/down. The Sony rep I talked to said any damage to it and they could send it back. Do you think it'd be
noticed? Do they send me out a refurb or fix my own console?

2. Purchase a blu-ray drive off ebay and replace it myself for ~$60-80. Possible miscalculations during
installation or shady dealers on ebay tend to give me the willies when dealing with hardware this expensive.
I am fairly confident I could replace the parts without much trouble, but moreso the ebay issue scares me.

3. The unethical choice: Go to walmart, purchase 80 gig ps3, swap it with my 60 gig and return it. If this
works it'd save me a bunch of cash, if it doesn't... ehhh.. Also, I'd lose any form of backwards compatability.
Its not that I play a whole lot of ps2 games anymore anyways, though I do not have a working ps2 or psOne
any longer, but the thought of having it there if I wanted to is enticing.

Tell me dToiders, what would you do in my situation?


"...the first recording ever of Orca whales hunting dolphins."

In a Strange Wilderness such as this, we can only speculate that the dolphin owed the whale some amount of money and the whale gang was simply collecting on this debt. If only Ecco could stay away from the craps table!

And as such, the natural byproduct of this habit is better looking women and better game to seduce said women. And thus... (SFW)

Just bought TF2 off of steam all pumped to play it and it says the servers are too busy to download. Kind of disappointed. Is this common? If I ever get it to download hit me up on TF2 to kick my buttox.

The (hopefully) most epic golf game ever devised is currently in the free beta stage. All credit of my finding this game goes to CNN. Modeled to be the World of Warcraft for the adult, sports oriented group of gamers. Able to be opened in a browser window totally ruins any productivity, as CNN stated, that I had, have, or will ever have in class I do believe. I just can't get over the graphics of the game. From what I understand they used pictures of golf courses and placed your golfer/ball in the image. Sounds wacky but it works if you can get over the cartoon'y character standing in a very photo-realistic environment (which it should be because it is, actually, a photo). I am going to be keeping a close watch on this one.
