GTA IV Broke My PS3

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Ignore this post, unless your PS3 also broke from Grand Theft Auto 4...

I played Grand Theft Auto IV 4 for about 3 hours and in the middle of a mission the PS3 just shut off. I turned it off and on in the back. It went on for about a second, then turned off again. Now it won't even power up. WTF!

It was plugged into a surge protector, and none of the other devices lost power. It was in a well ventalated open area. I didn't touch anything.

Internet says it may have overheated, and should work in the morning. I think it is fried.

I put it here on this blog because the number 1 way people find this in google is by typing in McLovin. I don't know how that is, but its true. So I'm hoping this will get in google under the title I gave it, and someone can help.
