So as you all know my beloved PS3 is suffering from YLOD. I have managed through the use of a hair dryer to get the blue light to respond twice but only breafly. I may continue to work on it. I don't have the equipment and maybe the skill to go delving into the internals of the PS3 to try a fix. If I forget the fix and just flash up a new machine what do I stand to loose. All saves All protected content All downloads All patches If I'm happy to start from scratch any game I own will the new saves interact with my existing Trophies say for protected content saves and award me trophies as per normal or will they be forever screwed? As I said I'm happy to just ignore the losses and play the games from scratch. What do people think?
