My PS3 has the "yellow light of death." Yesterday my wife did the system 4.25 update then played for a while and shut it down. Now it will not start up and has the YLOD. Could it be related to the update or is it just fucked? It is an old style 80GB model, it lives in a safe place, doesn't get moved around, we have no kids so it's led an easy life compared to some Playstations I'd imagine.

What is my next step? I am asking here because I think I'll better understand your answers than the gibberish kids post on most gaming forums. Thanks.

We went to Game Stop today. It's impossible for me to not spend a bunch of money in there.

Picked up Dead Island GOTY Edition, Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition, Darksiders, and Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

Hopefully the XBoxes don't overheat.

The XBox seems to be able to take it, I've ran mine for almost weeks on end before.....the power supply is another story I'm on my 2nd in just over a year.

Anyone checking out Black Mesa? Open-source remake of Half-Life 1 on the Source engine.

The "Xeraux" on Steam ain't me.
