    Last night I decided to turn on my ps3 and relax and play a little NCAA. I turned around and I heard the three beeps. I said, "shit." I had it happen 2 years before with my original ps3. Sony replaced it for $150 because the warranty expired, but I spent $600 on the first one, $150 on that last one and now will have to spend another $150. I will have poured $900 into Sony on the console alone. This got me wondering, how many people on TF have had the Yellow Light of Death or the 360's Red Ring of Death?

    For those who've never seen it, this is what happens.

    I had the red ring of death on my original 360. I had an original ps3 that would always shut off at random, I believe it was due to overheating, but it was well ventilated. The 360 was replaced by microsoft and I traded in the ps3 to gamestop for a new one a couple months back.

    My first xbox got the red rings twice - fixed for free both times.

    My current one hasn't gotten it yet - they solved the issue.

    Well I called Sony, since it happened before I decided to take their other option and for $99 and my current ps3 I will get a slim model. No difference except for it doesn't have backwards compatibility. Hopefully this one won't get the yellow light. If it does, I'll be pissed.

    Yeah, lol. How about that.:) I'm currently enjoying our 21-0 lead over Auburn.

    Ha ha, got me there. But we got a glimpse of the future in AJ, even though the receivers dropped all his passes. It's better for the SEC if Auburn wins out and wins the national championship though. I honestly believe that, though if AJ had made a comeback win I would have flipped out.

    I can't stand SEC fans. The only thing worse than an SEC fan is a Boise fan.

    I don't mind the teams, or that they do well...

    I just hate the fans.

    Then you'll just love me, I'm an Alabama fan and a Boise State fan.

    Deep down in side he loves us all. It's just resentment because the last time they went to the national championship they got killed by an SEC team and some assholes were probably really obnoxious.

    That is lucky, and I don't abuse it either, it usually doesn't get hot at all. This one was just a freak accident.

    I haven't read any posts but the first one...BUT...

    I had the YLOD on my fat boy PS3 a few months ago...I had NCAA 11 stuck in there and didn't want to waste the money just to have to spend it again down the road. Instead I opened up my playstation and got the game out myself and bought a new one to avoid having problems in the future. May have been an extra 300 dollars but down the road I figure I have saved myself trouble and got a newer, better console.

    Yeah, I'm getting a slim model for $99 and my broken ps3, sounds like a good deal to me. How pissed were you when it went to yellow and did you leave it on a lot? I know I didn't.

    I would never be happy that my team lost because it's better for the conference. :(

    But if Ohio State lost today, there would be ball busting aplenty throughout the site. :) Michigan still sucks though, so it's okay.
