Back in the day, my launch PS2 suffered it within a few months and my next two consoles ended up getting it as well. The only time it didn't happen was when I got the slim. The one I have now (PS2 Fat) hasn't had it yet, but I know it's only because I don't play it all the time like I did when it was current gen. But sooner or later, I know it's going to happen. It's just a matter of time.
