I originaly thought my PS3 more or less droped dead (ylod) out of the blue.

But in retrospect it seems there were some signs.

One thing I now know to be true is my old fat PS3, before it died, the graphics were looking a bit washed out and dull. I wondered if it was just me being paranoid. But no. Now that I have my new slim I can clearly see my old fatty did infact have washed out dull graphics before it died. My new slim is much brighter and crispier graphically.

Heads up.
