Me too! I just need a new blu ray drive. Where did you get your replacement from?

Mines stock hardware but modded software. Free games but no online sucks. Plus I got mine free because of the bad drive so modded was my way around that problem

I have the launch 60gb. I have no idea how many times I had to delete stuff to make room for newer games. I just turned around and bought a 120gb "slim" model. I then jailbroke it via my TI-84. But after an update I broke my blu-ray playback. Lol.

Prominent video game reviewers taking to twitter and cryptically talking shit about Sony. Sessler said his job is in jeopardy due to the fact that Sony will NOT allow reviewers access to a production unit with full games. They are only able to play closed environments. Everybody thought they were hinting at Xbox One, until Marcus Beer said no it's not XBox, and Albert Penello later chimed in and said the problems hinting yesterday were NOT about Xbox One. Seems like maybe PS4 is in worse shape than X1 and launching a week earlier.

Replacement drives can be had on eBay. I replace the laser VS the entire drive. Cheaper and only another 5 minutes of work.

i've had to replace the laser on my drive too and while i was in there i re-did the heat paste on the gpu/cpus. other than that it's been flawless, and used heavily (many times left on for weeks on end).

anyway, i have no interest in these new consoles. down the road i'll pick them up, but as of now i'm sticking to PC gaming

^very interesting article. Will be watching for early access videos of the systems. I'd like the xbox to have the edge as I do think they've had better consoles in the past.

I bought mine off amazon. Just make sure you do your research to get the right drive for your model #. I bought the wrong drive at first cuz the chart the vendor puts up is wrong. Someone even commented about it in the reviews, but at the time I didnt realize what he was talking about.

Default Xbox 1 or PS4

Which one you have? Iirc the launch and early models are 400aaa drives/lasers.

40 gig fat ones are tough cause they used two different drives in the middle of production. I bought one and it was the wrong one. It's easy to tell which is which when you take it apart and look at it.

Your best bet is to just pull it out, look at the layout and size of the ribbon connectors and then compare it to pictures online. At least thats how i confirmed which drive i needed. haha

400aaa drives are one giant lens for the laser. The 410 (don't quote me on model) has a lens for bluray and a lens for cd/DVD.

Hhhmm, reading some more insider stuff. The day 1 XboxOne patch is supposed to make BF4 1080p/60fps with 64 players. If that is indeed true, that would be amazing. Supposedly all of Msofts secrets will be let out on Nov 12th, and Sony will be fucked.

I'm starting to believe it too. Major Nelson didn't even balk when some journalist was poking fun at him for COD being 720p on Xbox one. If COD wasn't going to be 1080p/60fps, I don't see such a highly regarded MSoft exec posting something like this.

Alot of this shit just sounds like random, completely out the rumors... Like shit we'd make up.

Apparently neogaf is a reliable news source now.

BF4 PS4 VS X1



Watch it in full screen. The PS4 is 900p upscaled to 1080 and X1 is 720P upscaled to 1080. For some reason, the X1 side looks better to me...

Sony loses IMO. How the fuck do you make a console 50% more powerful than X1 and still have the game look WORSE? There's still rumors going around that the retail X1 version will look even better than what was just shown. Sony sucks my balls.
