Do you still have a working 60gb PS3? or 80gb maybe?

Launch 60GB. No issues. When I watched the press conference for PS4 I looked at my PS3 and reflected on how much I have gotten out of it. Years of entertainment and about half a dozen moves (some internationally) and my 60GB keeps on ticking. I don't think I have ever seen another machine get this much use over an extended period of time and still work flawlessly.

My launch day 60gb YLOD'd last night... Exactly 1hour before the PS4 announcement :(

Until that point it never had any issues

My PS3 is used, bought on August 2012, and it's a 60GB model. No problems so far, but i had to change the hard drive due to space issues.

Mines fully working, 80gbs.

Never had a system die on me, with the exception of the NES..... which for some reason was already dead out of the box (dont know if that counts XD).

My old 60GB PS3 got ylod close to a year ago, but I fixed it not to long ago so it works at the moment.

I have a 80GB one and it's over 2 years old and still runs smoothly.

The only PS3 I've ever had is the 60 GB launch unit I purchased back in 2006. I've never had any issues with it until recently when it started having some issues recognizing Blu-ray movies every once in a while.

Found a new laser and lens on Ebay for about 40 bucks and it was easy to switch out. After 6 years it was pretty dusty inside! I already had it mostly apart, so I just dismantled it completely and cleaned it out and applied new thermal paste for good measure.

Now I'm just hoping it keeps up the good fight until I can retire it for the PS4!

Edit: I forgot I also have the Metal Gear Solid 4 Gun Metal PS3 bundle but that was just for collector's sake and is buried somewhere in the vault so I guess it doesn't really count. I can't remember what the specifications were for that model of PS3.
