Who still have 60 GB and 80 GB BC PS3s working in fall 2013?

16 replies 305 views Edited Sep 1, 2013

With the PS4 coming soon, I am curious to know if there are people still using original launch consoles models with full backward compatibility for PS2 games. I mean by that the 20 GB, 60 GB and 80 GB BC (4 USB version) models? I's been pratically 7 years since these models got out.

 

As for me, I still have two 60 GB PS3 and one 80 GB BC. I followed Logical Dolphin tricks to change thermal paste, change the power supply unit for the APS-231 of the 40 GB ps3 model and cleaned dust. And they are still working.

 

So anyone else is still having one of them in working state?

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

Lucky you, my 60GB PS3 from 2007 died on August 30th 2010. Then I fixed it and it died again on September 22nd 2010. I didn't get a new one until November 25th 2011.
