Forums - Sony Discussion - YLOD finally bit me

 

If you have a PS3, did YLOD also got you?

Still got a launch 60GB phat boy (Full BC, card reader and FOUR USB ports! *flexes*) and a 500GB slim from 2009, both working, although the launch model was starting to get SUPER loud a few years back so I "retired" it, lol. Slim is still working perfectly except for one thing, it doesn't suck the disc in, I have to physically push it in about 3/4 in until it'll suck it in, ejecting is fine though, lol.

My first game on PS3 was MGS4 Phat (day one 80gb bundle). It died the day I bought Metal Gear Rising. I was installing the game when the system stopped working. 

Kinda poetic. Never did finish Rising though I bought a second Super Slim PS3 later on that year (still works).

Also, my Xbox 360 got the RRoD playing Mass Effect and died again playing Mass Effect 2. Crazy. I wound up buying another regular and eventually an S (still have both and they still work).

It should still be able to play PS1 discs. Just, sadly, not PS2 discs. So...half BC?

Oh really? I didnt know that, I thought all phat ones were bwc and they took it off when they started to make the slim. 

Either way, sorry for your loss.  Will you be getting another PS3 to replace it?



Was it full BC?

If memory serves, the launch phat PS3s in the PAL regions never had built-in PS2 hardware (the EmotionEngine), only software emulation (this was also the 80 GB in the US). Then there were the 40 GB and 120 GB phat models, which only had PS1 BC (no PS2). Basically, if it has the memory card slots and four USB ports, then it should have at least some PS2 BC, and if it's a phat model with no memory card slots and only two USB ports (i.e. after MGS4 came out), it likely doesn't have any PS2 BC.
