Yesterday one of our friends came over to borrow our heat gun and perform a quick temporary fix on his 1st gen PS3 that had died. We had to tear the PS3 apart, do some magic, and put it back together again so he could get his save data on to back-up storage.
Why did he come over here? Because this isn’t the first broken 1st gen PS3 that has been quick fixed in our house. They all seemed to die around the same time. It makes me sick to think about losing a $700 dollar machine only a few years after it was released.
This got me thinking about the next gen consoles and wondering what their price tag is going to be on the 1st generation models. I think Sony learned it’s lesson last time but I still think they’re going to be pretty pricey. Any thoughts?
