Some old fat PS3 are doom to fail due to overheating, mine did. The differences is at least mine lasted for 3-4 years, it started to shut down by itself with Uncharted 2 and Killzone 3. I decided to switch from fat to slim when i tried to play MW2 and it started to do the same thing, something it never did before with this game. I still have my old PS3, it still working but i have it to play PS2 games, or PS1 games that the Slim doesn't read.
As far as the hacking goes PS3, X-Box it doesn't matter, who ever they target they are fuck anyways. X-Box will be no more safer than Sony, when these geeks decide to fuck something up they will do it and succeed. So, is not a matter that X-Box is better its just that the hackers haven't targeted the X-Box Live yet. Be glad they don't have any reasons to do so, if it happens we surely will be the ones making these type of threads LOL!
