I don't there have been any major recalls or defects to report regarding PS3.
I don't think there has been any. However when the xBox 360 was released there were masses of problems. Also when the Wii was released, Nintendo refused to admit there was anything wrong with the straps, and yet was willing to replace them for free. That just sounded like blaytant lying to me.
One person's experience or opinion never shows the general consensus
