    To top a night off where my rear bumper gets wiped out.... i get home to watch a blu ray to find my PS3 wont let me select a disc, when i scroll down the menu's they scroll back up too quick for me to select anything....plugged the controller in which seems to have solved the issue then unplug it fully charged and it does it again!!! really not impressed with this system at all

    to cap it off i made a nice gesture and bought the missus prostreet which after loading up the demo (2-3 hour job) annoyed the **** out of me....so what happens when i load up the full actual game....well sony want to load an update before she can play!! almost the size of the chuffing demo!!! another 2-3 hour wait..

    NEVER had any of these problems with the Xbox, thoroughly sold off PS's now.....is it just me getting these issues or is this system really this ****

    really in the mood to flush the thing down the pan but cant seem to force it past the seat!!!

    It's going to be like that and probably get worse as time goes on. Better games require more storage capacity.

    I'm a little fed up with mine too truth be told. I have setup my home network so that it's plugged in via ethernet to my router. My PC is also plugged in via ethernet, the laptops wireless though. If you have your PS3 wireless try using the ethernet cable to connect. It'll be 50% faster while using network orientated things as in store/downloads etc.

    Shouldn't this be covered by the 3 year extended warrenty.

    The time it takes to install the games on the ps3 annoys me too, and then when it has to install the update aswell you can wait a good 20minute sometimes.
    Tim have you got the bluetooth remote for the ps3? I got one as it makes it alot easier to use a dvd player. I'll add you on my xbox live I am on there alot of the time playing cod4 and 5. my gamertag is spamburg
