Forgive me if this is a stupid question.

I ended up discharging some static electricity (twice actually, within a span of five minutes or so) right to the metal parts of the disc reader inside my PS3 while I was disc changing. I know that static electricity is generally bad for electronic components, such as motherboards, etc. and just wanted to know if this will effect my PS3's performance or "health" in someway.

There are but two types of fights. Whenever we go into battle, it must be one of the two: The fight to protect life or the fight to protect pride!

As long as you were not touching anything inside the ps3 then you are fine.
An excuse is the sauce fools spoon over failure to hide the flavor of their own incompetence.

This refers to the exclusively internal components of the PS3, like the processor and such right? Sorry to sound dense, just making sure.

You should be okay, but it is a Sony product afterall, so you should be a little bit wary.
Sokar, Eliot... lay off Tony. I can vouch for him. He's a top lad and a massive PS3 supporter. He's not an enemy here. - SomnusNemoris on the Sony Defense Force

Idiotic. Would make more sense if we were talking about a MS product.

Well it's a Sony product so at least it's more reliable then anything with a Microsoft logo on it.

Why did you both assume I care about Microsoft in any fashion?

Typical reflexive Sony fanboy behaviour.
