It's shocking to see they do last as long as they do. Because with some 22 million sold. The issue is not that great at all. Where the MS one is huge and that is why they had to extend the warranty to save face. They shipped a bad product and they knew about it before hand. When I first started hearing about the Sony issue. It seemed like it was just the 60g units.
I know with the PS2, it had an issue with the laser tracker. But you could buy that off ebay for $15. I guess the point is. Everything mechanical can break. It's to what degree is the total volume of the products breaking that have sold. The PS3 will never reach that milestone the Xbox has achieved. While your PS3 only lasted 2 years. In that time hundreds of thousands of Xbox owners were on there 3rd and 4th consoles.
oh and, Sorry to hear about your headache though with the PS3. As a gamer.
