Rockstar: New PS3 Firmware Update May Overheat Consoles
“We have received some reports of PS3s overheating while playing L.A. Noire or beeping three times before shutting down / turning themselves off, mostly on older 60GB and 80GB fat models,”
The report taken from BGR mentions that Rockstar said the problem is not limited to just L.A. Noire but with other games as well. The report states people are having issues after playing on the console for 30 minutes to 2 hours. Players are reporting that their PS3s will flash a red light or freeze after the allotted time.
“At this time we are recommending contacting Sony directly to report the overheating issue,” a Rockstar spokesperson said in a press release. “However, this is not the end of our support; we are continuing to test L.A. Noire on all firmware versions and hardware models to isolate the issues and see what can be done. As always, we will update this article as soon as we have updates.”
