...uhh...ill just put my favorite quote of all time here.

I'm sorry for your loss....

My 60GB launch PS3 was on the point of dying, but luckily, when we moved house they left behind a slim PS3! We had already bought a 2nd as a blu-ray player, so my launch PS3 got taken out of active duty before her death and I am using a slightly newer (but still fat) as my main PS3 at the moment, but I fear it's time is coming

The worst thing is that your PS3 was only a year short of the PS4...

Are you going to be getting a super slim?

You know what you have to do now? Burn the house down. Burn them all!

I hope you have backed up your saves onto a memory stick / cloud storage D:

RIP console!

Your PS3 is a girl? I only buy boy consoles.

My 3DS Friend code is 0877-1237-2177 ...ADD ME! :D

It seems it was the CPU that went in this case, so the HDD should be fine, though i wont know for certain until I am able to test it

Eventually yes!  If I am able, I plan on picking one up on Black Friday

Rest in piece. 6 years is a good service record considering mine didn't make it far past the 3 year mark after repairs.
It still guards my game collection to this day.
