60 GB lifespan and YLOD

330 replies 185 views Edited Dec 19, 2008

So mostly all of the 60 gb's have the YLOD. I been looking around the forums and also other forums

that mostly all 60 gb's die on average of 2 years because of the YLOD.And other 60 gb will die eventually

Is the 60 gb only the defective console which has the bad power supply?

Nice scientific analysis there. Anecdotal evidence is often the most accurate method of calculating hardware failures.

ahhh. filipino huh? well, from my studies also.

 

most of the 60gb launch ps3s get the ylod. 

no surprise there. every technology or hardware has some issues if its the first batch

 its with the following batches where the company fixes their faults

 

my 60gb was purchased december 06. first batch. it got the ylod

 

my bro and i bought the satin silver 80gb ps3 and the gunmetal grey 40gb.

those are like.. probably a few months old.

 

im guess is that these bad boys wont get the ylod

Planning to start a "controversial" gaming blog. Anyone is accepted until slots are filled. :smileywink:

Yeah its not accurate at all

its probably less people if you take out the trolls

and the people that posted even tho their PS3 had

another problem and no the yellow light

 

And theres no need to look at other forums, besides the fact that this is the official forum

theres like 1000 members and 1000 guests using this forum at any given time

and only 161 PS3 reported so far, that gives you a good idea of how small the problem is

 Thats the thing, forums are here for people that actually have the problem. People with this error are going to come here and ask whats wrong. People with working ps3 don't have to worry about this cuz its working.
This is why your "statistics" are greatly skewed because all you looked at were forums (forums that help people)
