As a user of games, I was already worried about what I'm going to tell you, but since Friday July 31, and I'm not worried, because my PS3 to death, and I collected information from the last 2 weeks over 14 cases equal to mine.
The all powerful Japanese company Sony has sinned, and not for the first time, to build and sell hardware with an expiration date.
Because if once the first units of PlaySation 1 killed by an error in the power supplies, and PlaySation 2 stopped reading discs, now the new PlaySation 3 suffer a design error that condemns that sooner or later all PlaysSation 3 will be stop of work.
This bug has a name YLOD (Yellow Light of Death), the name given by the community of Internet users to an error that is roughly the same error that occurred in the Microsoft Xbox 360 (in this case known as RROD, acronyms Red Ring of Death in Spain known as the 3 red lights).
As we said, this error is the same as that of Microsoft, both in cause and effect, whether the machine that Microsoft error occurred by a mistake coming to overheat leading to the death of the system after short-circuiting desoldarse partially integrated into the system from Sony is about the same result, although there are differences as they occur.
The death of the system in the X360 could produce (and this was in a high percentage of the occasions on which it was presented), after continued use of the system, and in poorly ventilated places, bringing temperatures climb to the temperature critical error, which usually occurred within the warranty period of the system, as Microsoft discovered its error, in addition to assuming his guilt, served with an unusual sense, and should be common practice, increasing the security of system to 3 years which cover a large percentage of these RROD and compensating those who had to pay to repair your money back from repair, and as I said the error is no longer present in new models of Microsoft (at least for those causes).
The demise of the PS3 has a different way that seems almost deliberately to stay out of warranty. Apparently, the cooling system of the PS3 is far better than the Microsft, which limits the sudden death by a high number of hours of gameplay, but does not eliminate the problem, but merely delay it.
In the PS3 to reach a certain temperature, make a slight curvature of motherboard of the system, and make a slight separating what would be the cooling system of the processor (the appointed as Cell BE) and graphics card, it's come to this point where the PS3 has the hours, then finish with the same error as the X360
The main difference is that the best system of ventilation, the most compelling PS3 takes about 2 years to experience this error, with a average use of the system (2 years and 4 months, with 10 hours of game viewing or video a week in my case), and then the PS3 system are outside the warranty .
What Sony has yet to assume his guilt and isn´t providing an extended warranty, because that clearly is an error in the design and manufacture of the system (the Internet community is large and includes engineers, technicians and experts that they arrive at this conclusion, i don´t say source, you only look at your favorite Internet browser to find it).
And what is even worse, if Sony not recognize this error, and they have not announced yet whether this problem has been corrected in later models, it's likely that all PlayStation 3 that are being sold will have the same problem.
I hope that these paragraphs discharges here to make Sony take their share of guilt and to stop these errors, which in my particular case I have to buy another system (in Spain leaves the repair of 230 € with 1 years warranty PS3 now costs € 330 with 2 year warranty, of course I prefer to take a further year by paying € 100 more), and in the past I payed over 600 euros for PS3, and since then I bought about 50 games for her and 10 Blue-Ray movies, which otherwise would no longer enjoy.
Sincerely, Allen Schezard, PSN Id: Schezard.
NOTE: This text is based on personal research conducted, and browsing through hundreds of websites or speaking English or Spanish to find a solution to the failure of my PS3, which has guided me to the view that there is definitely a design problem .
