Yes I agree 100% about the bricking part and the ylod issues with the fats is absolutely appaling. I don't understand how they didn't know after quality control, that the fats would do that. Like I said before I have a 60gb launch that is sitting ylod. I always planned to get it profesionally reballed but its not been possible to get it done locally in Edinburgh.
i saved up and bought my original ps3, a 40gig mgs pack, then i was given a ylod 60gig, fixed it got a slim 320gig when jb came along for thats, got my nephews ylod fixed it, but he already got another one, then i saw a white 60gig launch on ebay so i bought that..
also i have another 60gig launch with ylod,but its my mates and im gonna try repair that for him.. so that's why i have 5 ps3s well 6 haha.. and i'm just deciding what to do with them in fw as i have my 3.61 for psn etc and my 3.41.. the rest are 3.55 and lower, so 1 of the 60gig will be back to 3.15 and have linux yd on it,then 3.55cfw on the others i guess.. but i'll just keep my 60gigs in perfect condition for later on..
i see it from both sides too, but they should have some upgraded service for us in these updates, don't you think.. if my ps3 bricks again due to fw i will die after last time.. GRRRR
I have 5 ps3's also but one is a launch ylod, the rest are slims but one has no bluray inside. I'm no sony rep but just try to see it from both sides. Why do you have so many ps3's? I have one hacked for me, and 3 x ofw for me and my sons.
