    Hmm..probably getting a wee bit dusty inside, so its getting hotter quicker...Not strictly a problem, but you may want to try and keep it in a cooler place/get a fan/ put a hoover to the air vents to try and extend the hardwares life a little bit?

    clean the fans by following :

    1: turn off ps3 console (on back of console)
    2. hold the release disc button
    3.turn console back on (while still doing step 2)
    4. now you will hear the fans start up and de dust :thumbsup:you can let go of button once you hear funs starting :thumbsup:
    5. turn console off for 30 seconds
    6. turn ps3 back on :thumbsup:
    7. play gta 4

    Just tried that cool wee trick with my 60gb and it doesny work :-( :-(

    I always get the fan being noisy during playing on my ps3 at random times.

    I just ignore it.

    I don't really need to do it though because it's been running sweetly for over a year......touch wood.....

    This trick only works for 40GB models.

    It also voids your warrenty if you do it.

    You can do it for the 60, it involves turning the console upside down after about an hour of play and turning it back on.

    This also voids your warrenty.

    bin it!

    thats a load of bull :whistling: why is it against warranty to clean the fan using a technique sony put in system :thumbsup:

    i just done the fan trick on my 40gb ps3,will try a game later and see how it goes,i will also move the console away from the wall lol

    Do you have it on its own shelf? ie not on top of a dvd player or anything

    I do and its fine...

    Other than that i dont think your PS3 will die like 360 due to it being hot so i wouldnt panic

    my ps3 is sittin on a shelf against the wall under my lcd tv,it sits next to the sky box also

    i have mine on shelf but when playing i bring it out and put on floor in front of tv for a better air cooling :thumbsup:
