    A common problem people seem to be having is new ps3`s slims dont work right out the box.
    The Video show sthe steps he has taken to attempt to get this brand new ps3 slim to work and after many attempts with ps3 customer service still had issues.

    Nope not video... but xbox 360 just had rrod to cover all tech issues.

    ps3 has:
    black screen of death
    yellow light of death
    dead laser
    dead drive
    error codes

    a bunch of names. Because people call this stuff so many different names its hard to find related topics.

    But if nothing else have a poll from our own tech people on these forums on what issue is ps3`s biggest issue now. Clearly ps3 is not as solid as sony would like it to seem. But you can see there is a issue that ps3 is having but because of no 1 tech slang like rrod.
    People dont know how to describe it.

    The video is fake he is simply playing around with the inbuilt service mode and pretending his PS3 is faulty. I could actually replicate that on my own phat or slim lol.

    PS3s do get faulty we all know that but i don't think you can prove that new PS3 slims are not working right out of the box and that its a common problem.

    A poll may make sense but i can't help thinking this is a reaction to someone posting two articles on the new 360 and the article on disc shredding lol.

    Keep in mind you'd want to add soft firmware freeze + brick and hard firmware freeze + brick to that list.
    I'll figure out how to have a voting thread and tie it to a news post later.
