The yellow light of death (YLoD) that indicates general breakdowns and issues on the PS3 Fat is infamous. Any issues with the PS3 are shown with this yellow light being lit when turning on the console, followed by a flashing red light that shows the PS3 won't restart.
This problem is generally caused by the PS3 overheating internally and melting the solder.

- Hard Drive: The 2.5" hard drive in the PlayStation 3 can be upgraded to 1 TB. With other modifications it is also possible to use 3.5" Sata/IDE HDDs as internal storage.
There are several models of the Sony PlayStation 3. The model featured here came with a 60 GB hard drive. This is the original "fat" PS3, not to be confused with the PlayStation 3 Slim.
The original models of the PS3 were backwards compatible with the PlayStation 2, but later revisions dropped that functionality. When the PS3 was first released, it was one of the few devices that could play Blu-ray discs. Some people bought PS3s just to play high-definition movies in the beginning, then used it for games as they got cheaper.
