LA Noire Causing PS3s to Overheat?
It really hasn't been a great month for PS3 owners. Now that the PSN network is back online, surely there's nothing else that could go wrong... right?
LA Noire will be hitting stores tomorrow for Australia, but a variety of reports are suggesting that Sony's mandatory firmware update 3.61 (the one rolled out when the PSN returned) is apparently the cause of console overheating/failure when playing LA Noire.
"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," said Rockstar, on a now removed support page. "Primary reports seem to be that updating to firmware 3.61 will cause PlayStations to overheat. There have been various reports of this on a few different games now, all reporting their PS3s turning off or "Red Lighting" after having installed 3.61."
Those of you with the older, fat PS3s may want to be careful if you're planning on some Noire action tomorrow.
