The Dacia Sandero will be in Gran Turismo 5!
Nah, I’m just screwing with ya! This post has nothing to do with Gran Turismo 5, it’s forever-delayed release, or anyone or anything associated with the BBC. (It’s still April 1st in the US as I type, shoot me.)
This post is to do with my PlayStation 3. It’s finally been replaced! So tomorrow will see the day where Final Fantasy XIII will finally be removed from its still plastic-wrapped box, and I’ll actually – FINALLY – get a chance to play it. I’ve also got a few old nik-naks to trade in, but I’m not sure whether I’ll put those towards the repair costs, or towards a new game, I’m not sure yet. But more on the replacement.
It’s actually not a replacement. It’s an all-new PS3 (well, a refurbished PS3 to be specific). Also, it’s not my original. See, Sony aren’t refurbishing the original Launch 60GB models any more. It’s probably to do with the backwards-compatibility architecture and trying to eradicate the last signs of PS2 gaming on PS3, but I’ll also speculate that it’s also due to today’s firmware update’s eradication of the Linux OS support. It’s no skin off my back though, for:
- I only have 4 remaining PS2 games: Final Fantasies X, X-2, XII, and a signed copy of Tony Hawk’s Underground 2 (which will NEVER leave my possession btw.)
- I never used the Linux OS anyway
- They’re actually replacing my machine with a 160GB PS3 instead, giving me 100GB extra storage for no additional cost (on top of the €160 I’m paying anyway as it’s well out of warranty).
Yes, I’ll lose all my save files. Yes, I’ll lose the handful of movies and TV shows that I had on there and hadn’t got backups of. But also yes, I’ll have more room, for more stuff, be able to actually hold all my PSN games (last time I formatted my hard drive, I didn’t have space to re-download Flower 😦 ), have plenty of room for Rock Band DLC, and stick on a few custom NHL 10 goal horns to boot. HAPPY DAYS!
