Hmm, to not derail the topic but you have your numbers wrong: the 60gb hasn't even yet been out for 7 years. The 80gb not even 6.

I just couldn't part with my 80GB W/ 4 USB ports, I already had an original PS3 Slim as a present B4 it got ylod.

I got the same model refurbished. having a backup seemed like a better idea than getting rid of it at the time.

Thank you all for the kind words. The visitation shall be this Saturday. I've had many calls from friends and family members who have helped me through the grieving process. You ALL are invited, there will be puffy cheetos and nachos. As those were our favorite snacks.

It's a damn shame that Sony encrypted the hard drive so you lose all your data if your system fries. I have a 60GB fully BC PS3 that got the YLOD on me, and unless I pay some guy to reflow it I'm gonna lose everything, too.

So sorry for your loss, TC.

Sorry for your loss. There have been a lot of threads about The Last of Us killing Phat PS3s. The Last of Us needs to be stopped so I am therefore boycotting the game.

All this talk about Phat PS3s dying has me worried that the PS4 I pre-ordered will die quickly too.

i dont think it was The Last of Us, it ran fine on that. just old age i think, and yea I'm really irritated that i lost all my saves. and I'm pretty sure launch PS4's will be faulty like new 1st gen consoles always are

Just get it repaired.

I refuse to get rid of my sexy 40 GB PS3.

It even says Playstaion 3 on it not the gay PS3. I liked the Spiderman font, the gloss black with touch sensitive buttons.

I am never getting rid of it, I will keep getting it fixed somehow (I do plan to buy the super slim PS3 as a back up just like I got a PS2 slim to replace my launch fatty PS2 incase that dies (it hasn't yet, still going strong, plays everything except for Roger Rabbit DVD (it quits when Jessica Rabbit takes to the stage. It can't handle the hotness of Jessica Rabbit)
