PS3 YLOD & Games I'm Currently Playing I've owned a PS3 60 GB since January 2007. It was one of the best purchases I ever made. A few weeks ago, I got the YLOD while playing Borderlands 2. In order to save myself some money I decided to fix it myself rather than sending it to Sony. If I had sent it to them I imagine I would have to wait at least a few weeks before it's fixed and shipped back to my house. I'm not that patient. To my surprise, I managed to find a lot of information on how to fix it. The best tutorial I found (the one I used to fix my PS3) is http://ps3doctor.com. The steps are easy to follow, and I already had the majority of the things needed to complete the fix.
I'm back. Now I'm playing Borderlands 2, Batman: Arkham City, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception.
There are few games that I truly consider to be a masterpiece. Having been an avid gamer for many years, I can say that these rank extremely high on my list of all-time best games. I can only think of a few other games that have me wanting to play all night long after work. This might be the best time for video games.
By the way, if your PS3's laser needs cleaning or you need to eject a disc manually the link I provided above has tutorials on that as well.
