    No Xbox 360 fanboys getting a Xbox 360 won't help.

    Ring sony up but I doubt it then complain to watchdog lol.

    I would phone them up before you take action. As a yellow light of death is overheating. Depends how much you use the ps2 function on it. Whether you take another replacement. Blu-ray drives don't last that long on these. I had mine replaced on my 60gb beginning of this year.

    Some people have actually fixe it, check AV forum, call Sony first though.

    No the overheating is nothing to do with ps2 function.

    ok, I am not bothered about playing PS2 games anyway

    Is the slim one better with regards to heating issues than the 80GB one?

    Too early to tell.........should know about this time next year.

    I guess It should be ok as long as I don't use it 12 hours a day and keep it in a well ventilated position

    Agree. Tbh I would go with a fat one from the looks of peoples reviews.

    If I find the 80GB one somewhere cheap I'll go for it, but they seem to be selling like hot potato (how come we never get any good deals on hot potato on here?)
