    1st PS3: Launch - Nov 07(disc-drive failure)
    2nd PS3: Nov 07 - Nov 07(borked firmware on the replacement)
    3rd PS3: Nov 07 - Aug 08(borked firmware)
    4th PS3(250): Aug 08 - St Stephen's Day(disc-drive failure)

    Sending away for my replacement tomorrow but as it's a 60gb it'll probably take a few weeks to get. R2, Far Cry and Bioshock all sitting waiting to be played...

    I don't trade/sell games so it would be a bit of a waste not to get it replaced.

    Does 'borked firmware' mean a firmware update borked the machine or that you installed it wrong somehow and broke it that way?

    Still on my launch machine, mind you I'm still on my first 360 too.

    Firmware fucked it up. Constant freezes.

    Yeah, it's not like their previous consoles are prone to hardware failures or anything.

    What's wrong with it? Did you get an extended warrenty?

    Actually I think the PS3 is one of the most reliable consoles ever, apparently the failure rate is around 0.02%

    It appears reddevil just destroyed a mirror factory or something :)

    No one makes durable consoles like Nintendo and Sega do/did. The megadrive is still stands as the most durable console ever made by man.

    Was playing fifa, and it just turned off. Try to turn it back on, but just goes off again. There are traffic light LEDs. What's that mean?

    And I've not bought warrenty or any of that malarky, so what do I do?

    That takes me back. I had a launch system that never had that problem...the separate AV outs not requiring a Sony cable were awesome.

    Ugh, imagine if all these spacker kids that are around these days had modems back when the PS1 was breaking every week

    Well, the ones that old enough anyway
    I'm a 'spacker kid' for starting a thread about a console with a supposedly low breakdown rate breaking down on me 5 times?

    To be fair, I dont know many people whos PS3 has bust. Mostly because I dont hang around with people that own the console (chavs).

    Seriously though, mine has run flawlessly since I bought it. I am on my second xbox at the minute, my launch model finally packed it in a couple of months ago. I think I have been lucky to only have one break on me.

    My 1st PS3 broke playing FIFA and the latest one did too...

    Ring Sony and find out what you can do. Didn't a friend of yours get a 60gb replaced out of warrenty for free?

    the Gamecube done alright, I've only ever heard of a few isolated cases of them failing.

    Yeah. He got it really quickly too. Dunno how he did that.

    Have you had to pay anything?

    Not for this new one, but xtravision made me pay the 250 after the 3rd one broke. Appearantly you only get a 6 month warrenty with refurbs...
