I got the "yellow light of death" last night. My wife told me it was telling me it's time to get a PS4. I'm probably going to have a friend do the repair though. If it doesn't wind up working, I guess I'll look into alternative machines. I'm not really interested in a PS4, since I look at my use of the PS3 and I've really only used it as a BD player. Gaming is negligible, so I suppose I'll wind up trading off my games or hold onto them until I can get a PS3 for super cheap down the road.
