Do you mean Fool Proof?
YLOD is a bitch... sony fanboys deserve it for making fun of RROD though
I know a few guys who can fix xboxes, dunno if they do PS3. Worth a look, they are on gumtree

Every games console made, and every one to be made in the future will have some percentage of breakdowns or other errors. There is no 100% reliable console.
So PS3 owners are actually lucky, in the sense that their percentage of broken consoles is almost 10 times lower than the Xbox 360

Hehe I'm not trying to start a flame war, was just a passing comment. Let's not make this into one of those threads.

I own both consoles and love them equally. :thumbsup:

Talk about bias from a PS3 fanboy, you do know that the reason that the PS3 failure rate is so "low" is because they are taking EVERY model into account so some models have a huge failure rate some low but because the figures show them together it looks small.

Also Xbox RROD is getting quire rare these days and at least they have a FREE 3 year warranty for it. lets see you 3 years after purchase get a free YLOD repair.

my friedn had his 60gb form launch, get ylod, for £100 at a sony centre, they replaced it for a brand new one
thats all i have to tell you sorry :\ im just glad my slim has like a 0.01% chance of ylod

No, all Xbox 360's are designed on the same shape, it's not like a phat and a slim.
So they all are liable to RROD.
Wow a 3 year warranty, it always makes me laugh how Xbox users use this fact as a pro. Well i wouldn't want ANY console to break down on me within 3 years in the first place. So that s a fail

LOL at saying the shape causes the RROD. It's the internals, which MS have pretty much sorted out now with the Jasper system.

Also, I think the 3 year warranty was added after they started breaking down, so how can that be anything but a plus point?

Like I mentioned earlier, let's not derail the thread guys, Lion_Man you had any luck?

Replacing for £100 doesn't sound like a bad deal if you factor in how much a new console costs minus the cost of selling a faulty one

yeh the 360 has a 3 year warranty, my launch 360 red ringed about a year ago n i got a replacement free (took about a week). The newer jasper 360's are like ps3 slim, very low chance of failing. My Wii is more reliable than both put together!

Now my ps3 failed but only difference is sony wont fix it for free/cheap
I refuse to pay £140 for a fix (considering i paid £425 to buy) but i play ps2 games so ehhh i r in dilemma.

Well i could sell it for around 80-90 on ebay as faulty and put that towards a slim which are around 240 but my main issue is that i want to play ps2 games so the 60gb is a must unfortunately.

loving the fanboism! Makes you think he takes his PS3 to bed with him.....

I assume you have searched but ]this has a tutorial that may work...?

Ok sureeeeeeeee, :roll:

And it's a minus point, as they shouldn't fail in the first place. Or at least have a tiny percentage of failures.
