My PS3 has just killed itself, playing Dark Souls I went to talk to someone and it cut out and the red light started flashing. Killed the power and turned it back on to find that it tries to turn on but gives up after 20 seconds and flashes red. It is well and truly dead, it is a launch day console so it has had a good life. Now for the bad news, I simply cannot afford to replace it any time soon. Christmas is too close and I have just spent £1000 on a sofa. I shall wait until the new year and then make a decision. Perhaps no more PS3 gaming for me.
