Quit living in fear and just enjoy your console until it breaks. Not even Sylvia Browne can predict the future.

It really depends on how you take care of it.  All electronics will fail eventually.  However, my launch day 11/17/06 60GB PS3 is still running like new.

I don't know what the average life span of an old PS3 console is. But my 60gb PS3 has been working perfectly for, 3 years, 5 months, and 26 days. But individual results may vary.

I've got a 60gb one as well,
if you run for a while for to long it can get really hot.
So try not to run to for really long periods at a time.
E.g.. Play for a couple of hours and let it rest

Playing your PS3 is just like having un-protected sex, the more you go at it, the more your at risk..
