launch ps3 still going strong!

14 replies 12 views Edited Oct 29, 2010

Hi guys - just wanted to say that I have a launch PS3 60gb and have had absolutely no problems to date. I almost never post but see way too many complaints about my favorite system that I just had to speak out. We all know how it goes, happy people don't take the time out to post while anyone with the smallest complaint have no hesitations.

 

btw, my ps2 is still kicking too. Got it a year after launch.

 

Very happy

use my ps3 for everything. Hardly watch tv anymore now that netflix is up an running. Electronics break but the PS3 has not been any worse than other launch items.

it's a good product and you must agree if you bought one.

 

I just think there are too many complainers. Not enough praisers.

 

Had a few beers tonight so bear with me......

Hey man. It's true that nobody comes in here and say things like "hey, my ps3 is alive and well after 4 years".

 

It's cool that you did 

 

I have the 80GB model from late 2008.. going strong, but i can hear the fan now.. so i am a bit concerned. Might have to buy a Slim in case it dies by the time GT5 comes out!!! lol

Good to hear seanvanv. Truly an accomplishment, and definitely a nice break from the "SONY DOES NOTHING RIGHT," complaints.

 

I hate you Activision.

80GB Motorstorm bundle Ps3 here still running strong!! I decided to replace the thermal paste with Artic Silver 5 back in march/may as summer was coming and I knew with the amount of usage this ps3 gets that the stock thermal paste wouldnt suffice. Best to just change it.

 

If I'm home theres an 80% chance that im on the ps3, so yea.... I deffinately put it through its paces

I made the mistake of coming to the forums and proclaiming that my 40 GB launch was going strong. 3 weeks later I got YLOD.
