The newer slim PS3s can bitstream audio (except in 3D mode) if I'm not mistaken. The older FATs (like mine) can't do this because of hardware issues. There are subtle and significant differences, even among FAT and SLIM models. My brother has a later FAT, and it doesn't have as many USB ports, nor does it have slots for the card readers. I'm less familiar with the SLIM models, but they might all bitstream

on your last comments
No it means you like small knockers instead of a handful lol

Just to clarify my earlier statement. Black Ops is glitchy. Not my PS3. I love my PS3. It's the original design so it can play PS2 and PS games has 4 usb slots and all the memory card slots. I also have a Halo Xbox thats been faithful and never died. I do wish they gave it a bigger HD though. I got Black Ops for Xmas from my brother. I was going to skip the game entirely but he got it for me so I played it. If he didn't have a PS3 I would have traded it for an Xbox copy after all the problems the PS3 version seems to deal with that the Xbox version doesn't. :(

I have it on PS3 and have never had a problem until today when it repeatedly froze and kicked a handful of games I left that lobby and didn't have any problems for several games until one guy from the problem lobby showed back up and so did the problems. So I am wondering if the problem may not be (partially atleast) with people who have modded or otherwise tampered with their systems and/or game? Just somethin to think about

Modded PS3 system wouldn't run any different. I have a Jailbroken PS3, and it is impossible to play online right now

If the PS3 version is glitchy, that means that the testing team was slacking, or the developer didn't have time/want to fix the glitches before the game shipped. After being a tester for EA for 2.5 years, and sony for 6 months, I know the system and sometimes the testers find things that the developers just can't fix in time for the launch. There's only one game crashing bug in the shipped version of Buffy the Vampire slayer for Xbox (my first game as a tester), and I can only get it one out of 10 times.

007: Die another Day was one of the cleanest games ever produces by EA. I was on that team as well. =)

Yeah.. you think this is bad you should google Fallout: New Vegas. It either freezes, gets me stuck inside a mountain, or the bitrate slows to make you think it freezes until that turn to the right you made 3 hours ago actually happens..

I think longevity is going to be an issue with PS3s. All mine can still do efficently is play Blurays and I can also play them on my laptop so..

Xbox time?

I know I'm going to just hex' myself, but I have a FAT 80G that I got in winter '07 and have had NO problems. BUT, my dad has one, he got just before me, did just die, so... Of course, he didn't keep it ventilated, too well, and he's a little careless, so... I don't think comparing longevity of PS3 to 360 is a very good idea, considering heat issues I thought I remember from the inital 360s... lol.

Hit detection is my main complaint. When I shoot a somebody in the face, and it says that I missed, I just have to put this game down, and go back to Granturismo. I can shoot a guy four times, and it will only register my last two bullets. WTF!

I had original Fat 60gb ps3 and eventually the bluray lense did die.
Sony wanted a little over $200+shipping to repair.....kind of idiotic when a new slim cost $300.

I found a local guy to replace the bluray lense for $100 even. He said it is pretty common for bluray lenses to burn out due to the high heat.

Hey I am on my 4th Xbox 360 because of the RROD!!! I still have my 60 GB Fat PS3 no problems. For the record to maintain the Fat PS3 be sure clean them about once a week with a dust buster/vacum cleaner. Keep it about 1" away from the wholes and suck up the dust so it can maintain ventaliation. The fat PS3s were dust magnets which can eventually cause heating problems if clogged, I think thats why the slim is Matt now.

360?

Oh please. The PS3 is so much more reliable then the 360. My friend purchased one of the 250gb 360's from Best Buy back in Oct. He went through 4 360's in a week because they they all was either doa or RROD after a few hours. When he went back to complain, Best Buy gave him a free $100 gift card for his troubles and exchanged the console for the 5th time. His 5th console RROD on Thanksgiving.

The 360 heating issues are pretty much gone. Especially with the new Elite's and Kinect 360's

I have the older-style 360 that's a year old, and I don't get a lot of heat. The fans will turn on and evacuate it, and that's about it.

BB has a rep for that, what you have to do is make them open a new package on the floor to give you a new one. Not just a unit from the back.

My PS3 is a Fat 40gig that was built after they nixed all the ports. Bought it in '08 and I'm pretty sure after doing some research and checking the dust levels that yeah.. I think it's just dusty.

Dust eventually killed my laptop and desktop because for some reason our house gets excessively dusty all the time. Something with the vents. That said with some canned air and keeping it on top of a dresser in open air has helped a bit.

However the errors still occur, so I'm going to contribute that to the actual game and not the system itself. Just piss poor testing.

Same here and my kids will play for several hours at a time with no break.
CODMODWAR2, Halo(s) and what ever Lego title is out.
They beat COD Black Ops already and traded it in on Halo Reach (which they already had ) Sounds like most the issues come from the units that are connected to the internet.

That's the single most frustrating thing. I KNOW I've shot the crap out of some people and it's like you didn't even react. I've learned to adjust and it's not as big an issue but it's still there and rears it's ugly head now and again. The game is fun but sometimes ya just need to walk away. lol At least I'm back into positive K/D .

You know - I'd blown-out my console a while ago, and after, I started reading comments about how bad that was. Because we tend to leave our windows open as much as possible when the weather's nice, we get a lot of dust in our house, and I'm sure I'd get a fair amount out of the console it I were to flush it again. I think I'm going to do some more research, but I just can't see how that dust can be good; I don't know if I'm getting rid of it safely though...

Yeah - I've noticed that, too. Unfortunately, lately, I've been a good target. I've felt like I've had several kills stolen, but, like you already said - I just take a step back.

Not true. Brother in law's brother.. works for Gamestop, they are still getting 20-30% fail/return rate on the new slim models.

On topic: CoD sucks.. period. Play Battlefield and learn that K/D ratio doesn't win games. Then you will understand what multiplayer FPS SHOULD be.
