    My launch PS3 which was sent for repairs for YLOD was sent on May and received back on June of this year. Now three months later, the bluray drive.

    I am going to call them tomorrow, and If they think I am going to pay them again for it, then I call it quits.

    Even if you got it back on June 30th and it died 2 weeks ago, that is still over 4 full months :hsugh:

    Gaming hardware has been so fucking shitty this gen.

    PS3, the so called unbreakable system has already shat on me twice in a fucking a year.

    I am calling them tomorrow and If I don't fix it for free, I am abandoning Sony for ever.

    The only reason I got this piece of shit was MGS4 and GT5, and GT5 has yet to release.

    For fucks sake, I also bought three new games two weeks ago.

    I am going to miss playing MGS4 and Demon's Soul but this shitty pos is not letting me enjoy them.

    Oh and i think you can find some cheap ps3 blu ray drives from ebay and craigslist, but who knows how realiable used drives are.

    I think your best bet is getting a slim

    Did they send you the same ps3 back after they fixed it or was it a completely different one?

    I wonder how long their warranty lasts after you send it in. Im thinking its around 90 days.

    thats an awesome price

    What I would do is buy a drive and swap it in and then go and trade my ps3 in for a slim incase the old hardware shits again.

    do the slims have overheating issues? i'm thinking of getting a ps3 but i have a bad habit of never turning my ps2 off it's always on standby when im done using it ,it's never been turned off once in 4+ years and works perfectly:mamoru:. Pretty much what im asking is : if i buy a slim can i leave it on standby ,if it even has this option, and not have to worry about YLOD or it burning my house down?

    user error, probably stemming from obvious user retardation

    the Slim Only has a standby option. the only way to power it down completely (unlike the originals) is to unplug it.


    The slim actually runs hotter than the original PS3s :o despite using less power.

    Kind of awesome that the first person I've heard of having 2 issues (when 1 is rare) is the biggest loser on these forums :rofl:
