  1. I bought the PS3 version of Game of Thrones and it wasn't until I got home and read on the back that episodes 1-5 are on disc but episode 6 must be downloaded that I started to have doubts if I'd be able to finish it. I googled it but didn't find anything too concrete about it. Fortunately though, upon selecting episodes it did take me to a secret PS store page where I was able to download episode 6.
  2. It's now a worldwide thing that messages can only be sent from one PS3 to another. I don't have a PS4 so I always used the app to participate in group chats and it made communicating while in-game easier, but now I can't do any of that and it's back to the old school way of hitting the PS button to open up the message box.. It's unfortunate though that I can't inform some folks on my friend's list I can no longer see their messages until they log into a PS3.
  3. Had no issues logging into the server or loading up any of the missions.
  4. Metal Gear Solid 3 is my pick. That's a great game.
  5. This is pretty much what I did. As soon as I knew that was it and I was dead I quit the game and reloaded my save. I didn't have any issue with getting the undefeated trophy.
  6. You could just play it as is? I didn't want to go through all the trouble of deleting and reinstalling all 11GB so I played through Pure Survival without the devil horns and it was nowhere near as bad as I was expecting it to be. A bonus tip is if you stagger upgrading any part of your suit it will refill your health. I'm now halfway through the Hardcore run and the game keeps giving me way more healing items than I need, so it's going fine as well. I think as long as you back up your save on Hardcore so you don't lose progress if you get killed or die in one of the few instant death moments you should have nothing to worry about.
  7. Error 80010514 is the same error I had back in September which meant the Blu-ray lens was dead. Everything else worked on the PS3 except reading any Blu-ray discs. No other solutions worked for me so I had to purchase a new Blu-ray lens deck and swap them. After that I was back to playing games normally with no issue.
  8. You're probably right about that but I just did it to be on the safe side just in case.
  9. EDIT: So I tried doing this through the Best Buy link that was provided and it does in fact work. I live in Canada so I had to do some things beforehand. The first was making a new account on my PS3 with a US address. I simply used a hotel's address. Then I made an account on Best Buy.com and purchased the DLC pack. During the checkout there is an option for international customers to enter a provided billing address out of Houston, Texas. I did all that and the purchase went through and was emailed the code. I downloaded the code through my new account and installed it with my current game file then switched to my normal account. Just playing around with it I've already earned 2 trophies from the Pirates DLC pack.
  10. Oh wow, thank you for the heads up. I would have never thought to check those settings.
  11. EDIT: Mission accomplished. Thanks everyone.
  12. The whole reason I bought a PS3 in the first place was to play Batman Arkham Asylum. My PS3 was even a bundle and came with LittleBigPlanet and a Ratchet & Clank game, but I didn't touch those because I was too focused on starting Batman.
  13. I literally just overcame this issue. My slim model 250GB PS3 would not read any Blu-rays but I could still access all other features, play CDs, DVDs and PS1 discs. I tried all suggested solutions such as deleting corrupted data, inserting disc while the PS3 was lifted at an angle and even opening up the PS3 to clean the Blu-ray lens but none of those worked. So I looked up the model number and bought the corresponding Blu-ray lens deck off Amazon and with shipping it was $25. Of course it came from China so it took a few weeks for it to arrive, but when it did I opened the PS3 back up and replaced the old lens deck with the new one and presto I was back to playing PS3 discs again with no issue. I had no experience whatsoever opening up a console and taking it apart piece by piece, but I was pleasantly surprised to see how simple and straightforward the PS3 was inside so I was able to get right down to the lens deck without any problem.
