My PS3 just YLOD.
 
And I could strangle Sony. I've been on hold all morning trying to get this thing swapped out. I'm so pissed right now.

Which model do you have?

Good luck, buddy.

YLODD :(

From my experience the bigger the company the more infuriating the support. Hope you get it sorted Doc.

Well, I got a choice. I can get this one serviced (it's almost 6 years old), and pay $130 and have it shipped back to me, or I can have them to send me a refurbished one (newer,lest usb ports and no media slots) for $99. I think I'm going to get the refurb one. It will be under warranty too.

I'm still pissed that this happened.

$99 ain't bad after 6 years dude, especially if it's an upgrade.

I don't know if I would consider it an upgrade, but yea, I think it would be better than not having anything.

Remember, you will lose your PS2 backward compatibility with the newer model.

It's at most 4 1/2 years but who's counting....


Either way it's still :( They usually have very good turn around time so you should hopefully be back up and running in a week or so.
