Ps3's Quality And Reliability

Other than that it seems rock solid. I'd say my initial impression of the durability of the hardware is that it seems like it will be more reliable than the PSX and PS2, both of which had notable hardware issues at launch. So far I've heard of no mass failures or firmware bricks... and given how popular it is to hate on the Sony right now on the internet, if there were any major issues I'm sure they would have been blown up 100x by now and we would all know about them.

If that was true, that would explain my problems - I don't have a L-o-S to my PS3. I don't know why that would be the case though, because it's radio, not IR.

Yes, I'm aware of that, but the only times it has gone out of sync is when I've blocked l-o-s with my knee, when my armchair is turned sideways and the armrest is in the way, or when I've slouched down in the chair with the front of the controller pointed at the roof. Could just be coincidental I guess.

also, i might be wrong but i don't think the controller issue is addressable via a firmware update. if it was, i think sony would've said something about it by now or at least attempted to fix it.

Also, I initially had quite a few problems with the controllers losing their signal. It wasn't all the time or anything, but I could count on it happening maybe once or twice in a 1-2 hour gaming session. But it has been quite a while since that has happened. In fact, I don't think it has happened a single time since the 1.50 update... and has never dropped on me while playing Motorstorm. A few weeks ago I had a group of people over for a birthday party and some of the guys sat around and played Motorstorm for 3-4 hours straight. Not once did anyone complain about the controller dropping the signal. Not sure what all that means, but it is what it is.

In terms of reliability i would say it is far superior to the 360. It is way overenginered and seems very solid. I have only heard of very few people having issues. This may be from not that many being in circulation though but there seems to be no 3 lights of death type problem. And that is a good thing.

Only thing is that it makes litle to much noise frome some fan....
my x360 makes less noice with latest firmware.

Anyways, I just look at the ps3 and can tell its a high quality machine... later revisions will be flawless.
But I am very impressed with the ps3, and what it holds for the future.
