I got my first PS3 back in 2007 for Christmas. It was a 60gb launch model.. Quite a rarity at that point (I think). I sold it on eBay in late 2009 due the the ridiculous fan noise (it was VERY loud). Of course, I didn't mention that in the eBay listing ad.
I got a PS3 slim with Assassin's Creed 2 straight after, and guess what? IT GOT YLOD. I had the bastard for 2 WEEKS. And it broke on CHRISTMAS EVE. Typical. I was gutted.. I'd got so far on Assassin's Creed 2. Luckily they replaced it straight the way. This one hasn't broken..yet.
