    Fucking brutal. The Gamestops/EBGames here offer the satisfaction guarantee. I've used it several times. I will say that before EB was acquired by GS, they didn't have the same policy as each other.

    Thanks to Thunder for the platbar!!!

    Wow, I'm only on my 2nd PS3 after 6 and a half years. My first one (60GB "Fat" since Nov 06') lasted until late September last year, a couple of days before I joined this forum [and my parents blamed me for breaking it when I knew it was on its way out a few months before it happened (and I cleaned it with a slightly wet cloth every 1 or 2 weeks, also it never came up with an overheating error even though when I use it it's for basically 12 hrs - but that's a story for another time)] which was then "replaced" by a 120GB slim I had in a box since early 2012 but never used until then.

    Hope your 4th system fairs well for the next few years
    PSN/Steam ID is Icaraeus / 2 PS3s - 60GB 1st Gen YLOD'd 7 years, | 120GB Slim, 22 Games + Ton of Extras / PS4 500GB + 14 Games/ $1200 SuperPC since Feb14

    They said as it wasn't broken they would only give me pre-owned value for it 200 quid(it cost 260 only 20 hrs prior)so I accepted and got a 320gb slim,happy days i thought,until I tried it only to find it wouldn't play anything,not even fucking dvd's ffs!!!
    So this morning I took it back and swapped it for ANOTHER 320gb slim,which,at the moment atleast seems to be working fine.
    So........since thursday I've been the owner of 4 seoerate PS3's and I think,GAMES most regular customer lol.

    Anyone else had any similar problems ?
    my mate had worse than that from GAME, a couple of times he bought a pre-owned xbox 360, took it home and got RROD straight away LMAO

    I'm on my 3rd PS3 since 2009. First one was a 40 GB fatty and stopped reading discs 6 months after having it. It stopped working when I got GTA 4, I was PISSED! Sent it in, got a new one. October 2010, it got the YLOD and then got "LOST" when we were moving. I'm on my third one now which is a 160 GB Slim. Got it Christmas 2011 and it has this problem where if I turn it off while I'm playing a game or on the PS Store or something, it has to restart the system when I turn it on again. It isn't a problem though because it doesn't have to restart entirely. But it annoys me when I have to look for my controllers USB, plug in the controller, press the PS button twice and it starts normally. It's annoying.
    PS3, PS Vita, & PS4 owner. I love PlayStation!

    I had sold my PS3 which was 3yrs (just like yours). The guy that had bought didn't give me a negative feedback or nothing. Within those 3 yrs, I had used a laser cleaner and a can of air on it every 2 months. Never had any issues with it. Plus it was well ventilated.

    I have one of the 500gb Super slims and I love it. It can be noisy but not nearly as loud as you say.
