Tracking PS3 Defect Issues #1 and #2

so.  i’ve claimed before that we should be expecting 8%-10% defect issues.  so, i suppose that should dovetail nicely into this series — because, yes, it will be a series. 

we’ll start with the first 2:

1) 720p not upscaling to 1080i on hdtvs that do not have 720p as a display type.

2) losing your hdmi signal randomly.


and, no.  only launching with 1/2 their originally forcasted units doesn’t really count.   nor does the overblown issue of a (relatively) few games not working count.

well.  not towards the “defects in shipped consoles” issues anyway.

    Would they be able to fix the HDMI dropout with a software update? Or will they have to recall those units? I hope whatever they do ends in me being able to buy one cheaper (refurb).

    The PS3 is all hipe. It sucks, its ugly, and the controllers are as gay as ever. The Xbox 360 is still the King.

    i honestly don’t know. is it a media mixing issue? is it a board issue? i’d suspect the latter just because of the lack of hardware scalar. not that the scalar would have anything to do with it. it just seems they are related problems from a “design-to-implementation” perspective.

    sort of the “oops, i forgot,” syndrome.

    that being said, i’m sure you’ll get your shot at a refurb, man. they’ll be all over the place.

    I hear there are faulty fan issues in Wisconsin area. It causes the unit to burn out.

    Hey have any of you guys heard anything about the capacitors blowing out or something. Someone at work said he saw something on the news that there with PS3s that had capacitors overloading and they started smoking, but I haven’t heard or read anything online.

    Something that big would cause a recall of every unit…if most of them were at risk. It falls in line with what I’ve heard about them using cheaper capacitors to save money.

    I don’t have one, I got a Wii myself, but I think it would be a shame to see sony lose money like that. Esp. after that battery recall.

    hmmm. i haven’t yet. tho, that’s a good point. the ps3 is pushing some serious wattage. and, with an internal power supply, that’s totally a possibility.

    capacitors. interesting thought.

    I am all for it. I wonder how many folks actually use these. I built a small store that grew into over 100 thousands items. Its crazy how fast it grows!. Anyway. I agree!

    every time a new PlayStation came out anti-Sony guys come bash it, but in the end of the day, the PlayStation platforms allways win.

    Well the war continues,
    PS3 vs. Xbox 360 vs. Nintendo Wii.
    Remember the war of
    PS2 vs. Xbox vs. GameCube?
    The victorious was then and is now Sony.
    PS3 has more than Xbox 360. Better graphics, more polygons per second, and downloads more frames per second. For the future PS3 will out last them all. Like the PS2 did and still is. (FACT).

    Ps3 is it. its simple. I did play gears of war today and it was great but…… to me eggbox only has 2 games. halo and gears. Ps3 has more games and there aimed at all aspects not just first person shooters. i love anime and you know or should know that sony is all over anime games. Region A baby say it with me WORLD PEACE.
