@anon5203197, Thanks. Will try this weekend. We approached Sony but looks like they just replace it with new one and dont repair the existing one, here in India. And for doing that they were asking for original bills, who will keep bills for 3 to 4 years :-)...and that too we bought international so they were very resistant about doing anything.

@Sheetal.Pandey , the PS3 uses a normal laptop drive. There are several guides available on the web that can tell you more. The PS3 can apparently format a blank drive and put the OS on it.

New technology in PS 4 ?
chipmonk0   11/18/2013 1:44:23 PM
The photo of the processor shows a metal window frame around the die. This could be a stiffener, used to stiffen the organic substrate ( green ) on which the die is assembled. Such substrates are called Coreless substrates, w/o the usual PCB like Core that gives the Substrate its strength & rigidity but adds inductance to the power delivery and signal path thus slowing things down electrically. Coreless substrates are troublesome & expensive so used thus far only for high performance Servers etc. If this is indeed a Coreless substrate then would be the first use in a Game system.

Is the new PS 4 much faster than the last model ?

Would ChipWorks be interested in verifying if Sony is indeed using a Coreless substrate and Stiffener ? They just need to look at their x - sections & x - rays once again.

My Sony PS3 doesnt come up it says some drive issue, tried going to Sony's showroom and they say since you bought it from outside India we cant do anything. Also the hard drive is not available, we could have replace it ourselves.

How much power consumption?

How much power is required for PS4?

Can Sony make Game Console like laptop so we can play it on airport or in mall? Like Apple MacBooks, it can last for about 10 hours of play.

I heard a news story today on the radio here in Dallas.  Dez Bryant was in a Walmart today and bought a PS4.  He also bought PS4s for everyone in line.  Wish I had been there.
