    My ps3 is now dead.

    Yes, it's true. As of 3:56pm, Friday afternoon, February 22th, 2013
    my 60gb (now 500gb) PS3 has dead yet again. Now I must deal with the loss of my beloved one. Bought her on April 12th 2007. She was beautiful, young, full of life and power. She was going to take over my world. :,( She was always there waiting for me, whenever I returned home. Just waiting for the moment for me to turn her on. But suddenly, *sniff* she won't turn on no mo...

    What will I do, while she's away getting fixed?

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    Sorry to hear that m8, my ps3 is about had it, it keeps freezing and it takes for ever to load up and i'll be the one that kills it if it keeps messing up.

    It frozen when i was playing Metal Gear Rising and when it was saving the game then it frozen so my data got messed up so i have to start the dam game all over again i feel like breaking my foot off in my ps3.

    Mine isn't dead but I did take it on a trip a few hours away to a friends place and left the controller there. So I can't use it until I either get the controller back or buy a new one.

    How much does it cost? My first ps3 died with a dvd in it after refusing to play blu rays for a year.

    Well mine stopped playing blu rays(day I got mw2) but would still play ps2 dvd games. Then it selectively stopped playing ps2 dvd games. So I used it to play purely digital games and watch dvds after I got another ps3. Then it got the yellow light of death. Meanwhile my sega saturn which ive had since launch that's been idling away in my closest covered in dust still works perfectly

    Signs? Uhh....if it freezes a couple of times, that's one of them. If it doesn't read discs, if it starts to beep for a couple for few seconds that's another on.e That's all I can think of as right now. Make sure to clean it from the inside and out. Dust can get it in there. When I opened my ps3 to get a game out, there was a lot of dust inside. Might want to clean it every 2-3 weeks.

    Sorry to hear that, mate.

    I'm expecting my 60GB U.K. launch model to flat line any time now, though I'm amazed it has lasted this long. I'd like to think it's a testament to how well I look after my hardware, though it's probably more to do with how well Sony makes the things -- although both would be nice.

    Sad to hear but your PS3 has gone to gaming heaven.

    That beast of a console will rest in peace.
