I had an original Ps3 60gb from launch. Got rid of it last year kind of regret it but, I actually stopped using it and at the point of time in my life I really needed the cash. Didnt ever have a problem with it though, although I did buy a second ps3 80gb that did get the YLOD.
My original PS3 I ordered from Japan though and it worked like a charm. I can imagine the person I sold it to is enjoying it. I sold it with 60 games and about 150gb of dlc and other downloaded games.
Didn't the original 60GB PS3s from Japan have those 19 blade fans, while North America got the 15 blade fans?
I still own a 60GB PS3 but I hardly play it now, but it's never given me any problems *knocks on wood*. Also had an 80GB PS3 that I bought around 08 and about a year later it stopped reading discs when it didn't even get used much besides blurays. Ever since I've been using a PS3 Slim, don't want my fat boy to die lol.
