Me too. Except I didn't get screwed around - did a straight swap for number five with a slim. Must say CP was a bit of a lifesaver. although no lives were saved. Just a figure of speech.
My 5th refurb screwed the pooch two weeks back, I rang CP to arrange yet another refurb with the plan of trading it against a slim only to be told my CP policy had been cancelled without notice.
Two weeks down the line they're reinstating the policy and probably sending me a 60GB refurb or a slim which I'll flog to pay for the cost of the slim I had to buy with my own green while they faffed about.

I haven't played any MW3 so your right, I can't say one of them is better. But after seeing some people moaning about lag from both consoles, I conclude that yes, MW3 and MW3 are in fact the same as each other. I like the way I'm made out to be some kind of fanboy after one comment
My PS3 is on a shelf above the TV, on a stand. I put a small piece of plastic at each corner of the stand to raise it up a bit, so that air can get to the HDD. It actually collects a lot of dust, which I suppose is a good thing as it means its not going into the PS3.

Wow, I'm surprised to see so many PS3 Fats, notorious for the YLOD, still working after these many years.
Can you please tell me how you are storing your PS3, how you are keeping it ventilated and free of dust, managing its temperature, how often you play it, etc.? Basically, how the hell did you keep your PS3 running as long as it has?
My PS3 Slim, which supposedly has a much lower risk of the YLOD, has come up with the YLOD for no apparent reason whatsoever.
Thanks for any tips.
for all the talk of ventalation and maintenence, i think a lot of it is down to pure luck. I treat mine really badly compared to some of the people who post here, i dont do any special dusting apart from a quick wipe now and again, i smoke around it, i dont even shut it off properly half the time.
Of all my years with consoles the only one ive ever had any real problems with was the ps1, i got through 3 of them, although my third one still works 13 years on lol.

My mate has an xbox and he has experienced lag, but other people I know with either console haven't. Depends on individual circumstances. I'm just saying that if you want an xbox, go and buy one. In a thread asking 'is your fat PS3 still working', I don't see why there is any need to mention MW3 or xbox.
Does anyone else vaccuum their old fatty?
I do it every month or so, and when it is off I cover the top vents to try and stop dust getting in and keep the heat in the console a bit longer. Hey, its worked so far.
