Sony wants PS3 to YLOD?... Wrong company to accuse

Post by yonny616 on Mon Sep 27, 2010 7:33 pm

If so then also Microsoft since they rushed a unfinished product
Accusation:
Due my reserach for a CFW I noticed an interesting string in a .RCO file (system_plugin.rco).

"msg_error_console_hot_pls_restart"

The system has become hot. Please turn off the system and wait a while before turning it on again.

So my thought is: Could the PS3 have prevented most of the YLOD cases, as there should be a function to shutdown the PS3 when it is too hot?

Seems so, but well - someone may want to make profit.

Respond:
Normally, we don't bother with any "news" concerning hackers, but this bit seems to be sweeping across the Internet like wildfire.

According to MaxConsole, a hacker claims to have located a certain string in a PS3 .RCO file that apparently states, "msg_error_console_hot_pls_restart." This translates to, "the system has become hot. Please turn off the system and wait a while before turning it on again." Hence, the hacker has interpreted this as follows: Sony could prevent the deadly "Yellow Light of Death" issue by simply implementing a feature that would shut the system down when it was on the verge of overheating. ...and the reason they didn't is because they wanted more sales. I.e., a YLoD outside any warranty will force the gamer to simply buy another console, thereby artificially inflating sales numbers.

This is a lie. Sony wants YLOD? Facepalm
M$ doesn't even want the RROD/RLOD, even though they could've done more to prevent it.

How would it get you a lawsuit? If it's in warranty, then you don't have a problem. If it isn't in a warranty, then your fucked.

If the problem is massively widespread then it leads to lawsuits, just ask Microsoft.

A ton, you know why there's a 3 year warranty on that? Cause they got sued and would have had to recall all their systems if they didn't.
