PS3’s problems and issues; why in so short a time?

You are probably asking the same question as me. Why in so short a time from my purchase and the time I started using my PS3 I am already encountering some issues with it? Are you having them too? As Sony has an established and trusted reputation when it comes to modern state of the art technology I had no qualms in purchasing the PS3. I so much enjoyed its apps and games I find it hard to believe when it started this confusing issue. I don’t want to part ways with my PS3 but it seems we are heading that way. Well is three years that short a time for a Sony Tech?
