ylod..can i ever retrieve my online mw2

got ylod on my 40gb ps3 ten minutes into modern warfare 2 today..flashing red light then cuts out, sometimes stays on for a few minutes so managed to get the disc out but thats it

Ive worked hard for a 2.6 kdr prestige 7 on mw2 and wondered if there is anyway i can sign in to my account on a new ps3 or anyother way of retrieving my data and not have to start mw2 online from scratch

:(

Your online stats are held on the servers so everything will be there waiting for you when you sort out your PS3. Good luck.

IMO it's always worth calling Sony to see what repair/replace options they might offer you. Dunno if this works out cheaper in the long run though (AFAIK, refurbs have a shortish warranty).
