My Phatty died last night :-( But i managed to resurrect it with the old hairdryer trick :-) Got as many of my gamesaves onto a memory stick as i could (ie; the ones not locked to the machine - bow your heads in shame stupid developers) so gonna see how it runs from now - it's been ok for about 4 hours so far.
It's one of those things that i was expecting to happen but hoping it wouldn't!
Just for reference, i remember seeing something about model revisions and one of the slims had the large fan before they shrunk it, anyone know what that revision code is as if i replaced my phatty with a slim, i think i'd try and get that one 'cos of the lower noise output of the fan.
and it wasn't a firmware update/uncharted/gran turismo/COD that killed it -twas just wanna them things!

Well, the old YLOD hairdryer trick lasted about a week :-(
It's just such a shame the slim ps3's are soooo ugly compared to the phatty's
You get used to it. I have both.. The 60gig still wins everytime but I do use my slim alot more. It is quieter and more efficient, and the wifi is a hell of a lot better.
