My ps3 shut off in the middle of gaming and started flashing the light at me... It's a 60 phat that I got during launch. Do you guys know much about how easy this is to fix, or should I just get a new one?

If its just a red flashing light, it just overheated. If it is a quick yellow light then a red flashing light, it's dead.
I'll not stop moving forward. I'll not regret a single step I had taken. That's why...I order you...Do not betray me! And do not leave my side! No matter what.

Yeah it was just blinking red, when I turned it back on it booted up fine, then went into a "checking of system is corrupted mode," and then died again in the middle of it. If it's overheated maybe I should move it out of my entertainment center.
