I just bought a new ps3 in February after my OG fat 80gb motorstorm bundle ps3 died.... got the assassins creed 3 bundle.... power supply died in it yesterday... its irritating but at least I have my one year warranty... called yesterday and now box(aka coffin) on the way...
yeah, i'd just buy a new one myself. i am already having to send my ps3 back in to Endless Electronics for a 2nd Warranty repair. Hindsight is always 20/20, but Ii'd have just scrapped this 80gb and bought a new one.
Have you been in contact with Endless Electronics recently? I've been calling them forever from last week and they never pick up their phone. they don't email you back. Despite the recommendations they get, I personally think they are a scam.
