I should’ve noticed the signs… the fan running loud on occasion, the whole system freezing when I’m playing inFAMOUS. Now, my PS3 (that I got with 2 controllers for $80…is da gud deal) has YLOD’d. I don’t have a warranty [I highly doubt it, since I bought it off my neighbor] so if I send it off to Sony, it’ll cost a whopping $150… plus tax and my HDD being formatted. I feel very uncomfortable fixing it myself, since I wouldn’t know what to do, even after watching the How To video. My only option is to look around and see if there’s anyone locally that can fix it.
Why the hell would they put in chips that will be bound to melt anyway!?
