well...it matters if it is past warrenty. Which I think mine was. (woops...i was sorta replying to a post on page...13 or something)
I had a 60GB PS3 from launch. Mine got YLOD. My dad had a 60GB PS3 that he never used tho so he gave me his. So I never attempted to get the broken one fixed. He bought a slim so he didn't care either. I recently bought a slim as well so now I have an extra PS3.
...I spend too much money.
but ya, you can add me to the list if you want. I dunno what the point is of having it tho? Had 1 Xbox RROD and 1 PS3 YLOD. So 1 to 1 on the console deaths.
Well, add another 60gb launch machine to list.
I have had mine since launch 2006. It passed on December 12, 2009 at approx. 341pm arizona time.
I never had any issues with it other than a freeze here and there with games known to cause freezes.
Time to call sony as soon as i can raise the $150 bucks or whatever it cost now!!
PSN = TEX
mine yloded two weeks ago.i was using remote play when it suddenly disconnected then i tried to connect it once more and nothing. then i went up to my bedroom and i see my ps3 turned off.when i tried to turned it on it got a green light first then a yellow light and then the stand by red light...
so, yeah its sad that my launch 600 bucks 60gb model only lasted 3 years.thankfully i got a slim for x-mas. i just hope this new unit will last longer than my launch model...
btw, since my ps3 was without warranty me and my dad took it apart and well we found one thing. that the power supply was defective but i think that the gpu also melted because my dad fixed the power suppl and it still didnt want to turn on ...
anyways, like i said in my other posts this is gonna be my last time that i get a console at launch.
