#13107745 PSN Weekly Deals - 7/12: RePlay Sale! $8 N++, $8 Galak-Z,...

Looks like the screw method worked. I was able to play MGS V for 3 hours + without problems. From the video I watched, it says that this screw can mysteriously go loose at times. You probably should have tried it again before you sent it in.

Just so you guys know, it isn't the screw. If you want a really permanent fix, you need to bend the metal piece that connects the eject button with the board. Bend it away to stop the connection and disable the eject button. 

 

Sure, you can't use the physical eject button anymore, but you can always use the menu to eject a disc digitally. And the metal can be bent back should you ever want to enable your beepin' - ass button again.

 

I have been through many of the methods you'll find (including the screw) and none are permanent but the bending of the metal connector. 

 

Can't find the video of it right now, but if you look up how to disassemble the console enough to take the top shell off, you'll see the metal connector on the opposite side of the eject button, on the inside of the shell. Can't miss it.

Dammit I missed it. Make a new one appear!

While you're at it, please throw in a PS4 console at ~$260 or less. Thanks  :bow:

it sounds like I'll be giving them all this market research for basically nothing. Hooray, Rewards? :woo:

Opinions are only worth 2 cents anyway.

I think its safe to assume you hate most games and most things in them at this point. 

Pretty much nailed it

Bioshock > Bioshock Infinite

 

Infinite felt less meaningful to me. Little to no explanation for the plasmids, and much easier gameplay with the shields, health changes, and constant "Booker, catch!" (female character constantly providing you with items, for those who don't know)

 

Also, the upgrade/cash system is a little stupid. If you have trouble with an area because you're too weak or just not good enough at the game, you'll keep dying. That means you'll keep losing cash, and that means that you can't afford to buy upgrades for guns or plasmids that might help you progress through the game. 

 

I think Bioshock 1 helped mitigate that problem by using Adam to buy some upgrades instead, but I can't remember for sure.

 

I did enjoy the story, characters, and the other content and I think it is at least equal to Bioshock 1 in that respect. Still worth $10. But for me, Bioshock is the best one.

It was 9.99 during last sale, but it wasn't under 10 that's for sure if I remember right.

 

 

Well which is it?

 

Also worth noting is the reassuring "that's for sure...if I remember right"

It's also gimped compared to the normal Wii.

Yeah, but they have medication now for gimped Wiis.

 

Also: Price mistake? :3ds: 3DS XL Console - Red - Good - $29.87




#11652647 Wal-Mart will accept Video Game Trade-Ins starting March 26

So I have only glanced at a few pages, but it sounds like we dont get an actual giftcard?

 

We can only use them online? If that is the case that sucks because I was hoping to have this be a terminal place to trade and just get groceries and crap for around the house with the credit.

No, an e-giftcard is basically just a printed paper giftcard that you can use online or in-store. I bought something in-store with it yesterday.

It has potential to be the deal of the year but its not even half way over so I wouldn´t count your eggs before they hatch.

Chickens, you mean.

What a load from a fanboy right here.

BLAH BLAH BLAH

This is the AWD thread. Please take your shitty fanboy console discussion elsewhere. I don't need to be notified unless it is deal discussion in here.

You're kidding right?

Whatever "GBA" star nice console loser. Its probably one of the older models too with a missing battery door not the nice SP one with a backlit screen.

 

I'm tired of your vicious and hurtful statements.
