Re: So whos got GTA 5?
I ended up buying a YLOD PS3 for $36 on ebay to play The Last of Us (PS3 only) and went ahead and bought GTA5 as well. I wouldn't have spent anymore on a console myself, but I think I made out pretty good spending less than $40 on it and then doing the quick fix on it to get it running fine. I modified it by drilling holes in the bottom for airflow (since that was non existent, no wonder so many of them die) and added spacers to get a little bit of open space under it. It lasted me over 2 months with lots of gaming hours (it wasted a good majority of my free time) before I had to redo the fix.
I think I beat the actual missions on GTA5 in about a month and then kept playing it doing side missions or screwing around.
