Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I HAVE BEEN SHOPPING AND SEE BEST BUY ONLY SELLS 40G, BUT I SEE 60 OR 80G ON EBAY. dOES IT EFFECT GAME OR MOVIE PERFORMANCE EITHER WAY OR IS IT JUST FOR STORAGE?
i SEE PEOPLE SAY THAT YOU CAN PLAY PLAYSTATION2 GAMES IF YOU HAVE THE 60 OR 80...IS THAT TRUE?
Yes no ps2 games on a 40 gb version. And also only 2 usb ports on the front where the 60 and 80's both have 4. But also the multi memory card reader is missing. So i would recomend at least the 60gb version, but if your feeling flush then treat yourself to the 80gb version. Hope this helps you.

You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow
Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an
overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips)
You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do
not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself. You could
make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The
repair process takes about 3 hours.
IT CAN BE FIXED
IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?
If you have a unit that is not
backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your
Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.
