I was playing on my ps3 and it just went off, and the red light just started blinking, so i shut it down took all the wires out and put it in the middle of the room to cool down, then i remembered about the ylod so i took my game out of it and put it in middle again.
Will someone tell me what might have caused that to happen?
It was running for the last 3hrs i think.

could be over heating - it needs to be well ventilated - all consoles and even pc's are the same.

get a cold hairdryer and hair dry it with cold air

hopefully this will get rid of all the dead skin cells (dust) in the ps3 (or not!)

Get Hoover and extension hose onto the vents.

As above keep it in a place where air can get to it from all sides. Have it plugged into a socket by itself or get one of those extension sockets that are surge protected then play for a few more hours and see if it happens again use the same game if you can.

Even if out of so called 1 yr warranty give them a call. Try and be nice and mention you would expect it to last as you have hardly used it.

Do not accept any nonsense about 1yr warranty only you can expect it to last at least 3 years and soga can does cover upto 6 yrs

Who cares!!!

Never :lol

Memory never breaks, hard drives never break Etc. Oh dear.

Who wants to play games with a mouse and keyboard. I did in 2001-2004.

A games console is nothing like a PC (Ps3 is but I'm just about to say I like to play games) . I'm glad about that as I like playing games with a controller like a heathen.

I also eat Pot Noodles

It was a joke, I haven't have a computer crash in (god I don't even know).
Applications have crashed though...... oh stalker did result in a complete system crash and required restarting.
