Do you have a noisy, defective PS3?

43 second read

So it looks like even Sony are not exempt from hardware glitches…

It seems like if you have a PS3 with a serial number of either CE133190xxx or CE133212xxx then you may be out of luck.

There are reports coming out of the woodwork that these units begin to emit a loud whining noise that makes it virtually impossible to watch a movie.

Not quite a red ring of death but a glitch none the less. Sony seem quite happy to swap it out for a non-broken model though so don’t panic.

    And yet these myserious reports of defective PS3s have not been featured by any of the big gaming sites/blogs. It’s probably cause you’re the only one brave enough to stand up to that bully Sony, right? Your blog doesn’t seem too objective…what, did Sony take a poo in your mouth when you weren’t looking or something? Lazy is right.

    Apologies for letting South African gamers know about 2 dodgy models, I did state that you mustn’t panic and they will swap it out. I also linked to a credible source.

    What else would you like me to do? How about a google search on CE133190xxx or CE133212xxx? 450 hits about the same story.
