One can also assume he just left his console (along with the game) running for 24/7  ::)
Along with risking a potential YLOD? Like vehicles, consoles these days are made out of fiberglass. I imagine leaving the PS3 on 24/7 would immediately put you at the risk of a YLOD. The PS3 isn't some super console straight from space, it has it's limits.

That's just cynical Ally... I am witness to a PS3 being on for ten days straight and still going steady with no troubles. I watch DVDs on repeat overnight with great frequency.

9000 hours though... That's bordering on WoW level.

How am I being cynical when it's the truth? Consoles these days can't handle the stress of being on for 24/7. The Xbox 360 can't handle it, the Wii can't handle it, so I'm pretty sure the PS3 will eventually die out too.

I don't want to turn this into a console war, so I'm just going to drop it.

It might surprise you but the Ps3 (especially the Slim one) dissipate heat way better than the Wii and the XBox360 (which has one of the worst ventilation system ever made) so if you put the console with at least 30 cm of free space and leave enough space for ventilation it can go on for hours without problems.

Consoles can't handle 24/7 cause that's not what they're built for.

On another subject: I still gotta download the WKCII Patch...

I've known people who left their ps3 on 24/7 for more than a year

PS3s only overheat under specific conditions when they're not ventilated well

as for YLOD is not really an overheating issue....but more of the thermal paste on the motherboard eroding away, yes overheating can make this occur faster, but otherwise, someone could get YLOD after using the system for 2-3 years like I did when my ps3 got the YLOD in 2010 and I had it since 07

others get YLOD within a few months of having their system

neither one could overheat, it could be just the thermal paste is too thin

So I finally got to GR20 *phew* and got a nice UNID Blue Ogre but the stats could have been better.... Love my Shura set <3 and I unlocked Ashura Scarf but it's impossible for me to get materials now ::)

Next thing I have to do is unlock Vell 2 ASAP and level to 80.

Also it seems that Japan got Patch 1.15 raising GR to 50 and Level Cap to 90.....

We still haven't got the 1.14 ::)
