Old Fat PS3 still working flawless to date...

[ Edited ]

Im always reading stuff about peoples ps3's going to *BLEEP*. Is it that people dont know how to take care of their stuff or what?

I still have my 80gb ps3 that i got 6 - 5 years ago and it still works beautifully. I've never had to reset my ps3 or anything. Everything downloads fine, im able to play my games. DLC and apps without crashing,

(Except for the Youtube App that keeps signing me out PSN after every 5 mins of watching videos, which gets **bleep** annoying after years of using that app)

 

Anyone else still have their old ps3's in working condition and use them regularly?

 

FYI: The ps3 is the only system i have.

My ps3 fell 3 times from 2 feet. So far it has survived.

Well I guess it comes down to maintenence/care and usage. I had my original fat 60GB PS3 for a little over 5 years before it got YLOD. But I put crazy mileage on that thing! I'm surprised it didn't give out sooner but it was inevitable since the PS3 performance was getting sluggish with freezing and the fan constantly coming on. And very loud too! I'm on to a super slim PS3 now and it's great! But hey, congrats on your PS3 making it this long.

Yeah my PS3 Sounds like a Jet  engine and a Hemi engine mating. Never cleaned it. I can see all the dirt and nasty stuff coming from the vents but it still works. I think im just waiting for it to die so I can get the PS4 lol

My first PS3 is fat, but not a Phatty. It's from late 2008. Anyhow, it's fallen down off of a table a few times, and been knocked over more than that, moved around. It was the first family PS3, then we got a second and moved the data from it to the new one, and reformatted the original one.

 

It's gotten a lot of SH and Warhawk play, and Netflix and Vudu. It runs all the time practically. A couple of years ago I took it apart, cleaned it up and reset the processor.

 

It runs loud, but that's because my PS4 and PS3 SS and PS3 Slim aren't very loud, comparisons. It's pretty much how it was in the beginning, big and works well.

 

My favorite PS3 is the Slim, talking about what it looks like, but I love my SS too. The PS3 that's the oldest I have fondness for, but only because it was the first PS3 in the family. I'm considering retiring it, getting a new SS to put in it's spot, and put the fat one in a box, protecting it for when we want to play LAN Warhawk one day.
