well i don't think anyone read my last post but i decided that i would turn a $100 game into a $400 game and just get a second ps3: A ps3 slim. [note to sony, this is me buying into the vip access i was talking about i suppose [: ]
it is much smaller, much lighter, and a bit quiter than the last. i am actually in the process of getting it setup right now. i figured i could just swap my 500 gig hdd from my first ps3 and drop it into my new ps3 no problem. [ha ha ha wrong] but its the little things that bring me closer.
after a few hdd swaps, i am in the process of currently backing up my old ps3 to my ipod. the weird thing was that when i put the original 120 gig back in the ps3 slim and turned it on it didn't start up like i expected it to the first real time. it said i needed to get an update about 2.7 something on a removable media device and insert it into a card reader and force an install of update information. it just got done updating so we shall see how things go. i am probably going to get down on some arkham asylum while the backup on the other unit is happening. I have a rather dark unboxing video i might upload, but for now i will let things rest until tomorrow when i can update everyone on the backup and restore happenings hopefully by tomorrow i will have a 500gig ps3 slim and a 120 gig original 60 gig.
