    I have one of the original ps3 and its worked since the day i bought it, thats been about 2 years ago. My cousins broke though because he left it on all day. The old ones are better, then the new slim ones. The old ones run more smoothly and dont freeze as much.

    Mine lasted about 4 months before getting broken. I even kept it on a high-off-the-ground table and it was well ventilated.

    My stable answer is to return it and get a Xbox 360. Thats what I did.

    BTW - I'm no Xbox Fanboy - I just prefer it over my now broken PS3.

    He's dicking you around then and he's and idiot the PS3 breaks down like 1 out 10.000 units, even if it breaks down its your HDD and those can be replaced. If you really want it go buy but don't listen to what other idiots say.
