Very off-topic, but I hope someone helps me.

3 weeks ago I bought a new PS3 Slim (first slim) at Gamestop. It froze one time already. I turned it on, then changed to the tv for about ten minutes, and when I changed back to game, it was frozen in the XMB menu. I have no idea why it happened, considering that I already have the current firmware.
Also the PS3 controller that came with it is not well assembled, it is like sharp on the edges and it is annoying to use cause of that. I paid more than $250 for the console (paying taxes), and I think that at least I should have a good controller.

Well, Do you think that I should return it? Do you think it will freeze again? I called Gamestop and asked them if I could get just the controller replaced. They told me that it can't be possible, I would need to replace the whole system. They told me that they can't give me my money back because I bought it new. They also told me that if I want to return it I should pay $20 more to get the Super Slim version instead because they do not sell the first Slim version anymore. I don't want to pay those extra $20, and I don't want the newest slim because it looks cheaper and uglier (personal opinion). Any advice? I still have about 1 week before the 1 month warranty expires. Thank you.

You mean a 1 month return period. You have a 1 year warranty through Sony.

Anyone know the TIV on a Kindle Fire?


You can actually check on their site in the "Trade-ins" area. It's under "Amazon Tablet" and they have the values for the 8GB wifi version. It has different tabs with different values based on the condition. "Like New" condition is $36 store credit or $28.80 cash.

So I have like 80,000 PUR points right now. Trying to decide if using 50,000 of them to save $50 on a 360 Holiday bundle is a good idea. I have yet to see a steal of the week that makes saving my points worth it.

If you paid by credit card, some credit card companies will extend warranties by a year for electronics. You should ask your credit card company.

When I checked the link to the new list of TIV-raised games last night, the site was down for maintenance. I'm glad I remembered to check again before I went out today, because I'm definitely up to getting $70.80 for DMC HD Collection (bought a used copy from GS a few months back, but I'd rather get a new copy from BBY for $15.99 PMing Newegg's price), Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition (no way I'll get to it anytime soon, and I paid $20 for it so I'll be making $10 profit), and RE5 Gold Edition (bought the RE6 Anthology for $62.97 and no longer need the physical disc for RE5). :D

Bought both Silent Hill HD and RDR GOTY for PS3 when Gamefly had them in a $15 sale. Never got around to them, and too much else to play. Flip back to GS for $43. Not too bad.

I just went to do my trade, but I also need to renew my PUR Pro...saw the one employee I can't stand as the only one working, so I turned and walked right out. I'll try again later.

If you're talking about this https://www.powerupr...dex/TradeValues it started yesterday.

Please note that this is not really a 50% extra list (even though some values are 50% more than base). Those are set trade-in values. Add 10% to base if your PUR Pro.

Pay attention. If one of your local stores is doing the 50% extra this weekend you may get more at that store then the bonus value on the list.

Just a heads up. You'll make out a little better on those games if one of your local stores is doing the 50% bonus this weekend. Assuming the base values hold...but since these are set values vs. a % bump you might not have to worry about that.

Yeah I am wondering about this. I would assume these are base values so for some games getting the 50% bump this weekend works out better. Something like GTA IV Complete gets $21.50 today but would get $24 this weekend if the $15 base holds. I would assume the bonus TIV would stay the same even if they drop the Base TIV?

Right, because when the base value for Mass Effect 3 dropped last week the 50% bonus still kicked in. The fact that these bonus values are set values and not based on a percentage bump, they should stay in effect throughout the promotion.

Didn't know about the new list! looks like there's gonna be some stuff for me to get rid of this week too! Was going to do Dishonored at Best Buy since that's where my AC3 is at, but otherwise, getting rid of my vanilla Borderlands and such is worth it for me to get some extra credit.

I've owned each of the PS3s at one time or another. I got the "super" slim when my other slim's disc drive malfunctioned. This notion that the super slim is made, feels or looks cheap is ridiculous. Its sturdy, smaller, more efficient, and the manual drive eliminates any failures. Its superior in every way and looks great IMO.

The only issue is the Vertical Stand hasn't been released for some reason. I can't find it anywhere and Sony refused to comment on why. Anyone heard anything? I know its out in Japan.

Do you plan on playing GC games? If no, then trade it in. Especially if you plan on getting a WiiU.

Does it have the GC controller ports on the top? If so, yes you can play GC games.

If it is Wii Motion Plus it will say so on the bottom, front of the remote.
