I've had my fat one for about six years, purchased new, and this is the first problem I've had. I had it fixed about a week ago and haven't used it much since. That will change once I pick up The Last of Us later today.

Sorry to hear about your YLOD issue, man. I had the same thing happen to my 'close to launch' 60gb model after about 3 years. I tried repairing it a couple of times but it only made it another month or so after each repair before busting again. I ended up getting a Slim 160gb and she's still running great after 3 1/2 years. I really hope the next gen has limited issues.
Yeah, I don't really expect a price drop. Not sure why I said that, it's mostly some better titles that are keeping me from getting a PS4 right away. But if my PS3 breaks down again I may change my mind.
