So, I finally got around to taking my PS3 again to Gamestop again, this time with the missing cords. The store is dead, so the pleasant person working there had plenty of time to hook it up and plug it in. It had to check the drive, which was annoying, but everything's eventually working fine.
Until they got to check the hard drive size. Which is my replacement drive, because the old one stopped working. And it's a bigger size than in a normal PS3. And so they don't have a SKU for a PS3 with that size drive. And so - they can't take it at all! It's a better product they're offering to take, they're actually getting a deal from me and whoever buys it from them would only be better off for having more space, but Gamestop can't handle actually taking it. I could find a 60GB hard drive and stick it in there, but that'd cost pretty much all the money it take to return it.
This was sad. Might give it away or ebay it or something. Gamestop was the choice because the goal was really just to get it away from taking up space near my TV as easy as possible, now I have exert actual effort.

On the Madden ones: it's worth noting that if you have an XBOX 1 and subscribe to EA Access (which may also require you subscribing to XBox Gold?), Madden is now in the EA Vault and free. Free is better than $60, even if the PS games are probably throwing in extra content.
Firewatch has gotten some hype at the last few Playstation presentations. The previews - and now the reviews! - seem to be gently avoiding some big twist that's going on with a plot. (It seems more 'mystery' twist than 'aliens & zombies' twist, but it's vague.)
Polygon called it a good game (about five hours long) that may fall apart a bit in the last few minutes - both in the plot and one puzzle that's much harder than everything that's happened to that point. Kotaku says the game looks beautiful but is critical of the length.
I've played about 10 minutes of Firewatch so far. I'll probably regret the purchase because who knows if/when I'll get to play more. The controls still feel a bit clunky. But so far...

That opening felt like a Choose Your Own Adventure version of the opening of Up. I kept wondering when it would end, and well, everyone may be alive (except the dog), but that was still a nice gut-punch to start the game.
You can sign up for a PS4 software beta, which will begin in March. No hint at what they're testing, but there was a quick turnaround from when the beta started and the updated software was released last time around.

This is not Playstation, but I'm not making a new thread for one day. A whole bunch of first party WiiU, Wii and 3DS games are getting marked down to $20 on March 11th. This is really good news if you're a person who got a WiiU over the holidays but haven't gotten around to buying a second game. Super Mario 3D World sounds good.
