So it finally happened- my PS3 died. For years I have been laughing at people saying the YLD error was common, and for the most part justly so, but I would have never had imagined that it would happen to my own.
I bought my PS3 in April 2008 for the sole purpose of playing MGS4, but it ended being my main gaming platform until I bought a 360 in 2010, a gaming PC later that year(rendering that 360 purchase obsolete.) and a Wii last year.
We had some good times,(exclusives/PSN+) we had some bad times(Sony Gate/not up to par online), but overall it was my favorite console of this generation.
God speed, buddy. You will be missed...
