    Due to a super slow internet connection, I've left a PS3 running non-stop for 2 months,downloading PS+ games. What's the worst abuse someone has subjected their console to?

    I don't think that's abuse. It should simply reach a stable temperature and adjust fan speeds to compensate.

    Now if you put it in a small closed cabinet with no ventilation and spent 3 months playing it non stop while chain-smoking, that would be abuse.

    Frankly, I think no device which needs lots of active cooling would be able to survive that, unless it had huge thermal margins to spare.

    I don't think my PC has been off since I built it. Does that count?

    Dunno. When did you build it?

    On topic, I've knackered 2 PS3 optical drives by using it as my DVD/BR player.

    I smashed a PSone with the pointy controller. Those controllers make it far too easy. The console casing itself was sturdy enough, the laser not so much.

    I built my PC about 9 months ago?

    My partner also put my N-Gage through the washer. It didn't survive (not that it was a big loss in hindsight :p)

    I used to punch my ps2 phat when the laser started to act up. Was the only thing that worked.
    Had the PS logo indented on my knuckle for a time.

    Threw my ps2 out of the window a few times till it was little pieces because the laser wouldn't read final fantasy 8 or 9.

    I lured a Gamecube into the back of a ford transit and committed unspeakable acts on it.

    I tripped over my GameCube controller cord once and sent it crashing to the floor from my TV stand. Apart from a small chip to the silver paint it was fine, and still works to this day.
