I'm getting one for $100. Is that a good deal?

If it gets YLOD, is it repairable?

I had one, lasted three years. Got the YLOD, sent it to a computer shop (owned by my wife's uncle) he was never able to get it working again.
You're better off getting the normal slim.

That's also quite the big price tag for a 60GB console which is known to break down regularly.
Last of Us, on the other hand, looks barely better than a PS2 game.

Had a 60gb fat since 2010 and it's still going strong. Leave it on all the time and play ps1, ps2, and ps3 games on it. Plus it was refurbished when I got it. $100 bucks is a great deal because mine was like $350 when I got it.

I have a 60gb fat PS3 since 2010 and it still works just fine for me. I refuse to get a slim because it doesn't play PS2 games.

Hmm, I see.

PS3 BC I'm buying was from 2008. Seller told me he used it all the time but did not crap out.

Hopefully it's good purchase.

It's one of the most unreliable consoles ever built.
