We're nearing the end of the console's life cycle now, so I was curious to see how many PS3's everyone's gone through?
I'm still on my original fat 60GB PS3 (though it now has a 1 TB hard drive), which I've had since July 2007. It succumbed to the YLOD a couple years back, but I sent it in to gophermods to get the GPU reballed and it's worked like a charm ever since. I still put it through some punishment with long play sessions, too, so I have to hand it to those guys. They do quality work.
Well, I've purchased three PS3's, though none have broken. I gave my original 40GB PS3 to a friend around a year ago. It still works good. Now I have a 160GB slim (with a 500GB HDD) and a 500GB super slim. Both work great. --- Now Playing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon (PS3) - Dead Space 3 (PS3) - Batman: Arkham City: GOTY (PS3) - Uncharted: Golden Abyss (VITA) - Bully: SE (360)
I have the one that came with Uncharted and PAIN. 1st and working fine. Had one 360 get RLoD. No problems with the Wii. Overall decent experience considering what others have gone through. --- I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book. Groucho Marx
120GB original slim from '09. Still have the same console, though I did have to replace the laser two years later. --- "Welcome to nowhere and finding out where it is." http://psnprofiles.com/BBFaNaTiC86
