Okay, so I have two PS3s that were just burnt out from playing Iron Man 2.Sponsored Links
The first one is my main entertainment unit. I have enjoyed everything on this thing, even movies and TV shows over the network. I play Iron Man 2 today, and 34 minutes in, the screen freezes, the drive locks up (won't eject), and when I stick the disc back in, not recognized. I stick a DVD in, nothing. At first I think it's because the laser had finally went dead. In the interim, I bust out my second one from the closet.
The second one is my dev station, an older PS3 that's still capable of running linux. The only disc access this has had is using a Gentoo LiveCD and an Ubuntu 10.04 alternate install disc. I hook it up, get the video settings squared. Pop the blu ray in, navigate the menu (yes, at this point it's working), but once I seek over to the scene I left off, the drive freezes, no video. Eject, doesn't eject. Once I finally do, I pop it back in, nothing. A DVD, nothing.
Iron Man 2 has fried two of my PS3s, I'm sending a message to Paramount Home Entertainment.
Is something like this even possible? That a disc can just systematically burn out two of my PS3s? And be repeatable? Unfortunately now that both of them are burned out, I have no others that are capable of playing this disc (the other one's a TEST).
