PS3 to be re-issued?

I´m planning on buying a PS3 in the next few weeks but a friend of mine told me they were to be re-issued because of a flaw.

Does anyone know about this or should I just go ahead and buy one?

Sounds like Microsoft propaganda to me.

The only thing I have heard is that they are considering launching an 80 GB Version for the US, other than that no other issues that I am aware of...

None that I am aware of....that said it took a year for the 360's red light of death flaw to become apparent...yet Microsoft haven't done anything about it...people's 360s are dropping like flies.

I think it refers to the light on the power switch of the 360, where it is usually green, but lots of people have been reporting their 360s not working, with the green lights going to red (the green ring of lights is split into four, 3 of them go red your console is dead, 4 flashing red light's oddly just means the AV cable is not connected properly).

Microsoft are denying there is a major problem, but it does seem to be happening to an awful lot of people.

I had a bit of a scare. I tried everything. PS2 games, DVD's, PS3 games and it wouldn't read 'em. Then I just grabbed a random CD - it happened to be Nirvana's Nevermind - and it read it. I took it out and put in a game ...and it worked. Thank God.

Ok, so I have two problems with my two consoles.

I just got a fricken red light on my 360, but xbox said they'll ship me another one for free.

and my ps3 just started turning off in the middle of games that I was playing for the last two times I've played it.

This has pissed me off

Wonder if Microsoft will ever release something that doesnt have issues? I mean.......these things are years in development, same as their software but seem riddled with flaws. Cant think of any other company that gets away with it
