My 40GB PS3, still just a child in the scheme of things at 1 year and 9 months, has died. I went to play Avatar: The Game on Sunday morning, only to have the PS3 freeze on the start up screen, go black and give that yellow light along with a few red flashes and some beeps.
What bothers me the most about it is how well I've taken care of the damn thing over the years... limiting play time, cleaning around it frequently, kept it lifted off the surface of my entertainment center to help it stay cool any way possible. But alas, I have no hard feelings against Sony. Hardware failures are bound to happen, and I knew when I bought the unit that it wouldn't last forever.
I'll be getting a new Slim PS3 this month, probably around the 25th. Looking forward to it. As of now I've still got the 360 and the gaming rig to keep me occupied. Probably going to pick up Mass Effect 2 this week.
Well, that's all. Just wanted to share my misfortune.
