Angry 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.

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.
