i BOUGHT IT BRAND NEW. from ARGOS.
i got the receipt and everything, so an exchange shouldnt be an issue, though i have to be honest, if the next one dies quickly like that, im just going to keep a refund and either forget this generation of gaming, or invest in an xbox.
im not a ps3 fan boy, but i am waht they would consider a "loyal playstation" customer.
i am loyal to the brand, but the old brand were quality.
this is brickdiculous.

why's it such a big deal to people that the ps3 can only have a low failure rate?
just seems completel indenial to me, i know electronics die, after a certain period of time.
but more than a "low" amount of people have had this issue, thats absolutely true.
but whatever you want to believe..
i will just kindly disagree.
i sure hope it will work for many years, when i bought it i hoped i would atleast have it work a year for me, because im just pessimistic about the playstaion all togehter (its life span).

i don't think the xbox is better, i know its life span is worse,
but what i take comfort in is if it dies after a long while, it will get replaced for free or reasonably.
i ain't getting conned by sony to pay £150 for something that broke by its self.
thats just retarded. don't care if its been after a year. a console should last a reasonable time, a year isn't reasonable at all. if something breaks while performing as it should, that is its own error, not mine. if i spill a drink on my console or try playing it with a fan heater on it, then i expect to have to pay for it to get fixed, because I Broke it. but in these cases i haven't done anything wrong.
i don't take comfort in owning a onsole thats not cheap to purchase and if it doesnt last a reasonably long time, i have to pay for it.
i take comfort in having a problem with my console that i am not made to be responsible for, and is taken care of by the manufacturer.

whats it to you if i rant about it in this topic? i ain't forcing you to read it,
but don't worry, i have nothing more to say except i am one of those people already,
that lost a ps3 after 2 years and lost a £450 investment, spent time buying a ps3 slim which is ***** compared to what i had, and it dies in 3 weeks.
its a pain having to go through the process, i got a right to be ***** off and rantful.
as i said, you clearly don't want to know of the rant, if it bothers you i recommend you don't read what bothers you, that makes sense. me on the other hand, it feels better to get it off my chest.
and hey, i appreciated your help, thanks .
