Well, it finally happened. I turned on my PS3 ready for a few hours of vegetation, and I was greeted with beeps. Yes, the magical Yellow Light Of Death had struck. My launch 40GB PS3 has bitten the dust. I watched lots of YouTube videos about how to fix the PS3 YLOD with a heat gun etc, but the potentially crappy pay off (a few weeks before it died again) didn’t seem worth my time – so I ended up going and buying a 320GB PS3 the next day. The new slim PS3s look dull. I wanted to keep my old PS3. The original fat PS3s are sexy. I thought about making a vase out of it. I thought about keeping it for 30 years until it was a vintage collectible. But I didn’t. I sold it.
