    Same, "knock on wood". :)

    I heard Firmware 2.4 is bricking a lot of PS3's though, so be careful when upgrading.

    A world far beyond your imagination...
    I had the PS3 40GB for 1 day..
    and I did not know that it didn't have the backwards compatibity
    and Best buy's said they won't take it back
    So I over heated it and said that it melted.. somehow
    I got all my money back though they didn't take the games so I got COD4 and GTA4 with me atm..
    but no system to play on

    True Story
    So I win :D

    my friend bought Kane&Lynch (horrible game) yesterday and let me borrow it until he gets a new ps3, when i tried installing, the ps3 restarted, did this about 3 times, and then finally i went on one more time and it skipped the install.. anyone know why? ><

    also had some glitches while playing mgs4, would the problem be the ps3 or game?

    Don't know where they are
    Althought I will be re-buying the 120 GB Version (if I can)
    because Smackdown vs Raw 2009 is coming out this November thus I want it :lol:
    I have every single game ever released by THQ of WWE/WWF :)
    Only for PS2 and PSone

    ive dropped mine down the stairs numerous times, i think its the most durable of all the sony products, its got a bit of dust, but you can drop it 6ft in the air onto concrete and it works fine lol

    My 4th PS3 lasted like...5 months? Pretty good.

    The PS3 Controllers are tanks. I've chucked them so many times and they work fine, a little rattled, but still work.
    You can acually get my controller, and open the left side it because the thing holding the screws in snapped off...all thanks too CoD 4

    I was wondering if you have a 1 year warranty ONLY with Sony, would you be able to take it in for repair or something if your PS3 broke AFTER warranty?
