I have tried this repeatedly and the same result happens every time and it happens only for the Death Stranding Review and not with any of the other recent reviews listed. When the article loads and you hit View Comments instead of seeing a comments box (I am logged in already) you get the ling to sign in and if you click it you are sent to the main GameSpot page and not any kind of login screen. At first glance this gives the appearance that additional comments are being blocked without closing the thread itself. I tried this with the other 3 Review articles listed on the main page (https://www.gamespot.com/reviews/) and none of the rest have this same issue.

I've been thru 2 PS3's already and both crashed with BluRay drive failures after between 3 and 4 months of regular game play. Before I spoend another $150 to $00 on a third PS3 I'd like to know if anyone knows if there is an extar $XX one can bribe SONY with to get a system that is not set to break down after a few months of use. I'd been willing to pay extra back when I bought the first PS3 if it meant the thing would last more then 100 days. I would simply by a warranty but I already did that and still got the shaft. I had my second PS3 for about 22 months before I was able to play it on any regular bais and just like clockwork, it died with the same drive failure issue as the first after me and my kids tsrated playing it on a regular basis (more then 2 hours a week). Its almost as if there was some kind of clock or counter in it that would signal a self destruct of drive after X hours of play in Y days of time. If you are a stock holder in SONY its great because this is like getting unsusected users to rent the systems at ridiculously high rates and all the while they believe they are actually buying the thing. I mean what good other then being a paper weight is a game console if the darn mechanism for which you load games on it will not even work? I guess we could lok at on line gaming ata an additional extra $$$ per month. Man SONY has really corner the market with this thing.

I realize this is many months after the orginal post but as far as the PS3 failure arte being low, that number does nothing for those of us who have not once but twice or more had a run in with SONYS famous BluRay Drive Fialure Issue. I just lost my second PS3 (noth of whcih I purchased brand new) to the exact same mechanical fialure of the BluRay drive. Intertingly enough both failed after about 3 1/2 months worth of regular game play usage. The first one I purchased in Decemeber of 2007 and it died on me just over 90 days later; just long enough to go past the 90 daya store warranty but not but too much so as to give me too much enjoyment of the system after the warranty was done. I could have sent it to SONY and paid them $150 to send me some refurbished system that may have been beatn to hell by some kid who owned it ebfore me but I opted not to. Instead I convinced the store I purchased the first one from to let me exchange it if I agreed to pay for a 2 year warranty on a new one and I had to down grade from the high end 80gb system to the entry level 40Gb system as that was all they had left. Fast forward 2 years and 4 montsh and low and behold the second PS3, the 40GB mopdel dies on me with teh same problem. Now I did have this one much longer however that is a bit misleading. During the 3 1/2 months I owned the first system I played games on it on a regular basis. When I exchanged that one (after it died) for the seocnd 40GB system I also moved into my house and went from ebing by myself in my apartment to living with teh wife and kids and so game play stopped and was put on hold for almost 2 years. Starting this past December (2009) I started playing the Lego line of games with my kids.We played those on a regular basis (say a couple of hours a day for 3 days a week) and like clockwork teh system died a little over 3 montsh after we started playing it on a regular basis. It seems to me and I am speaking from experince that the expected life span of a Sony PS3 drive is just over 3 months. With what has happened why would I even consider paying mor emoeny to SONY for yet another roll of the dice that I may or may not get more then 3months of game play out of the system? Its sickening the way SONY ha downplayed this problem that si clearly not part of the normal dealinsg with electronics. I don;t know whats going on with SONY but the quality level of the PS3 is clearly not on par with past systems. My PS2 still works after many eyasr of play time and use and it cost half what I paid for my PS3. I am now stuck with either trying to unload all the PS3 games and roll the dcie and pay off SONY with another $150 or more in bribe moeny to get anotehr working PS3. If I didn;t have but 1 or 2 games or a few BluRay movies I;d tell SONY to F off and switch to a WII. But I do have hundreads of dollars maybe even thousands invested in BluRay movies and or Games. This whole BluRay drive failure thing has been poorly handled by SONY and they deserve to lose as much moeny as possible for how they have treated customers when it is clearly a non-normal gaming system issue and becauseof how many users have had this ahppene thanks to bad firmware updates. Gamespot should take a stance for users everywhere and demand SONY be held accountable for in effect screwing over the PS user base acrosss the world. For those of us on economic hard times who have already paid for 2 PS3's its a virtual slap in the face to repsond with the 'Send us $150 or piss off' reply to what is clearly flawed design/quality in a product.
