General PlayStation Question and Help Thread

Let's talk about anything about video games, no matter what platform it is. What is your favorite game? Who is your favorite character? What are the recently released games? What is DLC (downloadable content)? How do I beat this boss? How do I set up my team?

Balitaan mo kami pafs pag naayos o hindi.

Pwede mo rin tanungin yung devs mismo ng Guns Up. Baka makatulong. :D

sa board talaga naka attach ang mga external ports, repairable naman yung port mismo pero problema dyan baka yung pagkaka-solder (contact) between the board and the port ang may sablay. Alam mo naman ang ibang mga shops, basta nakita nilang nasa board ang kelangan ayusin baka tagain ka pa sa presyo.

sensya na kung wala akong specific na shop na marerefer syo pero payo ko canvass ka muna online tapos kontakin mo para magka idea ka sa repair price at kung maayos sila kausap. Wag ka padalos dalos sa pagpapagawa ng unit mo kasi baka mainip ka dun ka mapadpad sa mga teka-teka lang at baka lalo pa masira yan, mapapagastos ka lang sa wala.

Can you try this? Are you okay with opening your PS3 by yourself?

Does anyone own a hard pouch for the Vita? Is it "hard" enough that no pressure is put on the joystick even if enough pressure is applied on the pouch?

I used to own a hard case for my fat vita before, it's just a generic and unbranded that I got for cheaps back in SG. Ok naman kasi merong strap sa loob to keep the unit really tucked in and hindi naman tinatamaan yung joysticks kahit pa may mga game cartridges din sa loob. Yung material nya eh hindi katulad nung sa mga maleta na pang heavy duty, para lang syang cannister na pang reading glasses - its tough enough to handle bumps but not being dropped from a high distance or intentional heavy pressure on the case.

This is the closest image I could find similar to what I used to have. Ang pinagkaiba lang nung akin dati is nakadikit sa top flap yung catridge slots at may strap for the unit.

Ah ok, di ko naisip yung loob, yung hard part lang focus ko. The added compartment sa loob like that image eh possible na it will help din to ease pressure on the joystick pag nakasuksok sa backpack. But I checked online, yung nakita ko sa mall dito eh yung walang compartment. I might have to buy online again. Hay.

Payo ko syo, just get those cheap ones na mukhang durable para di ka na mapagasta ng extra for the unit na hindi mo masyado nagagamit.

Yung vita slim ko nga naka soft pouch lang at di naman napipipit yung unit. Siguro nasa pag iingat ko din kasi i never take my handheld outside my room kaya less risk na mabagsak ko sya or ma-misplace.

Plan ko bumili ng RPGs for the vita like World of FF sa December para di nakatengga yung unit.

Ah, I need the hard pouch as sa labas ko ginagamit like pag wala ako ginagawa sa office or somewhere in between the house and office. Maingat din ako sa Vita ko, Naka-soft pouch (and silicon sleeve) ako kasi less bulk than harder ones pero yun nga, nasira yung Analog stick so I'm switching to hard pouches. Bibili ako sa sahod.

(bumabalik ulit ghost movements kasi, madalas pag kakalabas lang sa bag pero nawawala din pag tagal ng laro.

why not just get a new one? joke... :sweat: :lol:

para di masayang vita mo, gawin mo yung ginawa ko - naglagay ako ng mga digital games na pwedeng ulit ulitin tulad ng tekken 6 at killzone mercenary. In your case, lagay ka din ng mga games from PSN na hindi nagrerely sa stick tulad nung mga ps1 titles or fighting games. Only if you can afford to do so syempre at may extra space ka sa memory card mo. Atleast dun d-pad lang gamit mo di ba? So kahit papano hindi total waste ang vita mo. :lol:

Between the PSV, PS4 and PS3 and work, I don't have time for games na paulit ulit. Marami na ako installed sa 64GB so di sayang. Meron na rin ako Killzone but natigil ko halfway dahil sa ghost movement. It's not a waste naman, thanks sa paginspire sa akin na ayusin yung Vita ko, now eh dumami nanaman mga to buy list ko na games kasi bibili na ulit ako for my Vita library. 3 lang kasi physical copies ko eh 3 years na ata yung unit. Ahaha

Anyway, Off topic na. ahaha Thanks for the insight on the hard pouch and you know, urging me to fix the Vita myself.

nah, wala yun. I know the feeling of hinayang sa isang bagay na medyo mahal tapos di mo masyado napakinabangan kasi nasira agad. :sweat:

Ako naman baliktad, dami ako physical games noon kasi nasuya ako sa presyo ng memory card, plus, wala ako steady na internet connection sa tinitirhan ko kaya malabong makapag download ako. Afford ko naman bumili ng malaking memory card kaso ang problema wala ako mahanapan ng stock dati sa sg, ang madalas lang na nakikita ko yung mga tig 8gb lang so yun na lang pinatos ko. Yung mga physical games na natapos ko na binigay ko na lang sa inaanak ko pati na rin yung fat vita ko.

Nung nabalitaan ko rin na walang masyadong AAA games na lalabas sa vita medyo dun na ko napahinto bumili ng bago, last physical game i bought was ffx/x-2. Yung mga bagong title na naglalabasan ngayon for vita hindi masyado magaganda para sa kin kaya dinedma ko na system ko. As for the rest download na lang, yung killzone ko nga kinuhanan ko pa ng offline bots dlc para malaro ng paulit ulit. :sweat:

Saang shop ba sa Greenhills ang magaling gumawa ng PS3?

Bigla na lang hindi gumana yung PS3 ko kaninang umaga. The power is on (green ang light) and the fan is working because I can hear it humming. Gumagana rin naman yung eject disc button because I can insert and eject discs. But for some reason, walang picture na lumalabas sa TV. I already tried 2 HDMI cables and the composite cable that comes with the unit pero wala rin. Black screen pa rin.

Hayz, kainis kasi kakabenta ko lang ng PS4 ko last week. Wala tuloy malaro. :banghead:

I can download games just fine (albeit very slow), but I always get an error when I try to download movies. Is it just my wifi being slow, or does it have anything to do with my IP address or something? (Not tech-savvy, so I don't know much.) Thanks!

:shock: Ps store sells movies? didn't know that. Anyway, you said it yourself, you can download games kaso mabagal nga lang. So wala ka na dapat baguhin siguro sa settings mo.

Try mo lang restart modem mo and see if that will help. Also, subukan mo din mag download pag konti kaagaw sa wifi, I usually do my downloading at night time para konti kaagaw sa network.
