I got a new PlayStation 3 to replace the one I borked a few weeks ago! I named this new baby “Orion”. I figured that sounded way cooler than “Midnight”. I like it, and I’m glad I have a console again, but I will always miss Snarky, the previous PS3, because I prefer that model over this one. I really do not like how Orion’s model disc tray slides open and close. :( I much prefer Snarky’s method of the disc automatically ejecting.
Long story short — I’ve disabled automatic updates for Orion. That’s what pretty much started the whole process that made me do a stupid error that wonkified Snarky. 4:00am + automatic updates = Tara wondering WTF is going on with her PS3, to where she tries to turn it off, which thus pissed off the hard drive. None of the service centres in Korea wanted to fix it because it was an American model, and the one bloke I was going to take to totally dissed me, so I decided to not use his service. I could have opened up Snarky to try and fix it myself, but I did not trust my capabilities. Therefore, I forked over $269 to order the Lego Hobbits bundle on Amazon, of which I’m donating the game to my workplace because I will never play a Lego game. I was worried that it wasn’t going to work right since the package came to me rather . . . banged up. But so far everything is working fine.
Now, I just hope Orion lasts me a long time since I’ve still no desire to get a PS4!
