I'm thinking of buying a used Playstation 4 off Craigslist for my son. I've asked what  “CUH” number it has, to find out how old the unit is. But is there really a difference in terms of the games you can play or the quality of play? (The model for sale is a 500GB unit.)

Thanks!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm officially at my wit's end here.  I have a customer who is a Veteran, and the only game he wants to play is Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on PS3.  He brought in his PS3 because the game freezes almost every time at the LOADING screen when the bar gets all the way across.  Here is a list of what we have attempted to repair this issue.  Oh, and yes, he has been able to play this game before.

HIS PS3 SLIM
1.  Disassembled and clean Laser LENS.
2.  Cleaned Disc.
3.  Repaired HDD.
4.  Backed up data, installed used 250GB HDD, installed PS3 Software 4.81, and restored data.
5.  Deleted update file to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and redownloaded.
6.  Deleted saved game data
7.  Used 2nd Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag disc.

So, in an attempt to figure this out because I told him it's either the disc or his system, he brought in another Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Disc for PS3 and a used PS3 Slim that he purchased at GameStop.  Like I said, he REALLY likes this game. So...

NEW PS3 SLIM (NEW to him)
1.  Transferred data using ethernet cable from OLD PS3 to NEW PS3.
2.  Formatted system and created new user.
3.  Kept system from hooking up to internet to download update.
4.  Updated game software with no saved game data or user account.

PLEASE HELP! (Image of hair on ground after pulled out)

Controller disconnects from Xbox One randomly yet constantly.  On average it disconnects about once every 2-3 minutes making gameplay nearly impossible.  In other words every 2-3 minutes the controller starts “blinking” and whatever game I am playing pauses and the Xbox displays “controller disconnected.”  I then have to wait for the controller to stop blinking (reconnect) then try to continue play.  I stated on “average” every 2-3 minutes, but sometimes it is non-stop (disconnect, reconnect, immediately disconnect, repeat.

I had a friend bring over two of his controllers to test them to see if it is a problem with the controller you sent me or both the controller and the console.  While playing, the controller you sent me disconnected at least once every few minutes.  His controllers disconnected approximately 5 times in the course of a half hour of play.

I played the Jackbox Party Pack that connects to your smartphone via the Wi-Fi connection and had no issues over the course of at least an hour of play with a friend using only smartphones. Does that rule out the Wi-Fi Chip? Should it be the RF Module Board or both that are replaced?

TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS ALREADY TAKEN:

- Plugged controller in via USB cable and “updated” to latest firmware.
- Hard wired the xbox one to the modem eliminating it needing to wirelessly connect.
- Moved the xbox one from the enclosed shelf to the top of the entertainment center so that is is not surrounded by any other materials; …

The hoverboard game is when you start out on earth and complete levels to go on to the next planet. You go from planet to planet and the last one is Pluto. You can also play with others all around the world, vs each other and seeing who can get the higher core. Is there a way to talk to others and interact within the game, if so how?

Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has successfully implemented multiple gaming console's on a network with NAT/PAT with full multiplayer gaming functionality? In particular using enterprise grade firewalls or routers.

I was thinking someone in the university education space may have done this (student dorm networks).

Thanks for the help!
