The ps3, i thought, would've lasted me 5+ years, no worries! The reality is that it didn't. I bought my ps3 along with a couple of friends/family (note: 3 were 80Gig/1 was 160Gig). Altogether it was 4 of us, this was around Jan-Feb 2008. Right now there's only 1 working Ps3 among us (80Gig). 3 of us encountered the same problem leaving our Ps3 'dead'. Randomly turning off, 3 beeps and flashing red light. (personally i've never seen the yellow light flash, none of my friends can claim they did either) That give the Ps3 an estimated 4 year life span among the 4 Ps3's. For those of you, who own/ed a ps3 for 3+ years, how's it holding up? Anyone encountered our same fatality?
