Some games aren't for everyone. I enjoyed the sense of exploration in the game. The last hour or so is extremely moving from a story perspective. It was visually stunning and an overall great experience. If you're looking for complicated and involved gameplay this is not the game for you. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy it. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
That's so weird! Mine died on me last month too! We had the old 60 gig that was backwards compatible with PS2 and PS1 games, so we finally just went out and bought one of the new slims with more memory.
i had the 80gig for nearly 5 years, then it crapped out on me while playing "office space" and i even took it apart and reflowed the sauder around the processors, then it worked for a week (minus wifi) then died while watching kickass. now i've gone wihtout it for over a month, and i'm sad to not being able to play Journey.
