About 2 weeks ago, we're watching a blu-ray on the PS3, Pacific Rim to be specific. About 30mins into the movie, all the sudden the disc stops reading. I get the, "Disc can't be read" notice. I thought, wierd, so I looked at the blu-ray disc, it was clean. I put in my GT5 game, which is the only game I played on the PS3 and it didn't work. I tried a few CD's, other movies, a few of my kid's games, none worked. I bought a disc cleaner.... nothing. SO whatever, I planned on getting a PS4 in January anyways. I'll just play Forza4 and watch movies on my Xbox.
Last night we're watching some cheesy christmas movie off Netflix on the Xbox. ABout half way through the movie, the xbox just shuts down. It won't power back up, not sure what happened. Keep in mind this is the PS3 super slim and the Xbox slim. Both systems have about 6 months of use on them due to my family traveling for a year in South America. We've had them over close to 2 years, but only used for about 6 months. Now they are both broken.
Now, I'm not sad about this, I was planning on getting a PS4 anyways in January but looks like I'll be getting one as soon as I can find one. Now, my wife, along with a bunch of other people think I broke them on purpose so we'd would have to get a new one. Now I have no reason to lie to anyone here, but it has made me really curious, what are the chances that two new consoles, with around 6 months of use on them, go down within 2 weeks of eachother, also within just weeks of the PS4 and Xbox One coming out?
Not trying to start any conspiracies of course, but again, what are the chances ?
