That's 630,000 unlucky fellows with units dying or dead out of the box. 630,000 people that are most likely somewhat tech savvy, and run to the internet to find answers or bitch and complain. Don;t get me wrong, 630K is a lot of people, but when you account for total sales, it's a drop in the bucket.
Just because there's 2000 people on Sonys forums complaining because they were one of the unlucky, but expected failures, isn't a reason to make sweeping generalizations. 2000 people posting at Sonys forum would swamp that forum, yet it's only 3% of the expected failures!
See what I'm getting at.
, did you read what he posted? and his experience with YLOD?, you must be one of these blind fanboys he spoke about.
You sound like one of these people that if the YLOD hits them you would go crazy lol, I kinda hope it happens to the types like you just to see your reaction. But knowing your types, you will probably go silent about it and act like it never happened lol.
Your post there seems out Sony's PR
manual, bringing up that stupid low percentage talking point thinking that has anything to do with the 60 gig models, thats for their 2007 PS3 design(40 gig) aka the current designs. I already explained to you that to Sony those 60 models is like they never existed, their worst nightmare that they worked extra fast to erase from the market.
Your types fails to realize Sony made sure the problem didn't get widespread because they phased out 60 gig design quick, clearly because they were already making a new PS3 and had them ready to go very fast. They sort of like relaunched the PS3 one more time with a new design and lower price not even 1 year into the market.
If they would had never done all those revisions after the 60 gig, you best believe a bunch more would be dropping like flies and it would be a more widespread issue but Sony were smart and stopped that, the 60 gigs literally didn't last 1 year in the market before they stopped making those.
