I've been pretty lucky with consoles so far, and aside with a little brush with a certain red ring, no real problems at all. Until today. I pop in cross edge (I managed to pick it up on the cheap while out buying presents) and after the first fight my console freezes. Figure it's late, I'm tired. I just turn it off and go to sleep. Today I go to play the game. No disc in the game menu. Figure maybe someone pulled it out, I check. it's in there, no scratches, no smudges. Clean new disc. Pop it back in. Nothing. Try another ps3 game. Nothing. Blu-ray movie? NADA. Dvd movie. Null once again. Make sure nothing is dusty, everything's clean and cool. Re-boot everything and try again... and nothing. My ps3 no longer reads any type of disc period. Kind of suck since it's christmas and I really really can't afford to buy another console. I've checked up online and this type of problem has happened before and it's some 150$ Us to fix. (Who knows what they'll charge here, and for shipping etc.) At this point I might as well just wait and pick myself up a slim and hope my saves and everything transfer over fine. No real reason for this post other than the need to vent a little as it's been a pretty crap day overall.
