I just moved to england, im not under warrenty anymore as its a launch ps3 so its 125 thats like $200.

I don't get to keep any saves, they don't repair it they just send me a new one with a 3 month warranty on that this is BS.

My xbox red ringed on me twice and I hardly play (honestly I definately prefer the PS3) it but atleast their repair services is 1000x better.

damn... i have a launch day ps3 still, got it 11/17/06 the original 60 gigger and it still works strong... only issue is i can't read anything on the XMB, the words are skewed... hard to explain, but anyway, i could have had it fixed for the price but instead bought another one for "my" room (the one the wifey stays out of :D ) with a deal from sony style... signing up for a credit card i got a $150 rebate on a 399 one... so instead of fully fixing the mostly functional ps3 i got an additional one for only 100 more!

the saves thing is pretty ****ty, but i'll be honest, some games wont let you transfer the saves anyway... due to people downloading game saves off the web.... i know motorstorm: pacific rift did this, had to start all over again!

not sure if there's any great deals on the new slim but its cheaper, for what its worth!

I might end up getting the slim eventually, Mine was also a launch day PS3 I had to import it from America so I would get backwards compatability.

I can't afford 125 right now though, I'm in my 2nd year of college and going to Uni next year juts passed my driving test. 125 is gold to me :'(

Come on, of course there a gonna be one or two which will have problems but at least it's nowhere near as bad as the 360.

lol at watchdog blowing a 0.5%(in the UK) failure rate out of proportion............


i got the YLOD but it was partially my fault(the other was the crappy ass electricity service in mexico....****in blackouts), it gave me a warning about it(got a temporary YLOD for like 10 minutes) and i did not keep it ventilated enough anyway, so it failed on me like 3 weeks after...shouldve bought a cooler.....
