Fall 2012 - Who still have a PS3 60 GB launch console?

30 replies 732 views Edited Sep 3, 2012

Hi,

 

Just by curiosity, after 6 years since PS3 launched, who still have a working PS3 60 GB launch console?

 

As for me, I have two in perfect condition, with each a 500 GB hard drive to have more memory. I have also a 80 GB PS3 BC (4 USBs).

 

And you?

My consoles:
2 CECHA01 60 GB BC launch PS3 (with 500 GB HDD), APS-231 PSU, Arctic Cooling MX-2 TP
CECHE01 80 GB BC PS3 (with 500 GB HDD), APS-231 PSU, Arctic Cooling MX-2 TP

I have the fat 40gb model with upped HDD to 320GB.

Only issue was the mechanism that swallows/spits CD's, I just pryed the blu ray drive half open so i can switch discs out myself, PsOne style XD

i just got my Checha01(upgraded to 500 gb) back from Endless Electronics 3 days ago, and its working better than ever!!!

just in case you were wondering i did not send it in for repairs i had a component upgrade which included a 19 blade fan upgrade, an APS 226  power supply upgrade,  i sent in artic MX-4 that they applied during their thermal pad upgrade, the Xflow case mod,  AND they scrubbed the whole system clean inside and out(thanx again Ben!!!) 

since i ve gotten it back i feel like it will run another 6 years problem free(except for maybe the blu ray drive...? ) XP

 

LONG LIVE CECHA01!!!
the absolute pinnacle of console video gaming!

Still got my launch console that I waited in line 6 hours for. I have upgraded the 60gb drive to a 250gb drive. Just finished episode one of Walking Dead tonight too. Was awesome in case you were wondering.

Wow, amazing! You did what it needs to last a long time. For my part, I made the thermal paste change for MX-2 and changed the PSU for APS-231 model on all PS3s. Blu-ray drive died on my 80 GB PS3 (CECHE01). So I replaced it and it works fine now.

 

I just can't give up having everything the original model had, which the new PS3s slim don't have.

2 CECHA01 60 GB BC launch PS3 (with 500 GB HDD), APS-231 PSU, Arctic Cooling MX-2 TP
CECHE01 80 GB BC PS3 (with 500 GB HDD), APS-231 PSU, Arctic Cooling MX-2 TP

I do but it is in its box in my closet because I use my 160 bad boy. I am thinking of formatting it to factory setting and selling it via (preferably) ebay or game store.

I do.

 

It is used as a Blu-Ray player and streaming media hub from my NAS

 

 

I am now trying to haggle this local guy who has a BNIB 60Gb thats never been opened, with launch reciept dated at exactly 12:09:32am. I am still looking for a few Gunmetal/MGS PS3's
