    I noticed my Ps3 is pretty hot (not like ow ow hot but noticable.) Is this normal and ok for it? I know its almost a pc so its understandable to get this warm. just wondering.

    It gets hot behind the console mainly.

    Yeah, mine did too. As long as you dont have it on all the time, it shouldnt overheat.

    Its normal. If you think they get hot then try using a 360. My 360 raises the temperature in my room 10°.

    Mine blows light cold air on the side... Bit warm at the back... So it's probably normal

    It's normal. Laptops get hot like that too. It's not the whole machine that gets hot though and there is plenty of air ports and I can always hear that fan working, so I'm not worried. I don't think you should be too worried about it and baby the machine unnecessarily. I'm sure it is more than capable of being on for long periods of time.

    What a moron. Im guessing you dont own one, so whats the point of replying to threads that ask questions about it? People leave theirs on 24/7 for folding and they do not overheat. This is not a 360, sony actually designed them very well.

    Buy a Nyko Intercooler. Snaps on the back and on the side and has a variable fan speed.

    Intercoolers are meant for forced induction vehicles, not for gaming systems. They cause more problems than doing anything good for the ps3 or the 360.

    I realize they are meant for vehicles, I have one on my car.

    But my PS3 has got no where near as hot as my friend's system, and I've never had it noticeably overheat.

    =/ Odd... my 360 isn't hot at all... maybe you're thinking about your electric toaster?

    Since you said it so wonderfully yourself (grammatical errors changed) ^^

    Yeah, leave your gaming console on all day, that sounds intelligent. BTW, how long is the warranty on Playstation?

    congrats, do you want a cookie? Stop recommending them, its a piece of crap.

    I said it because the 360 is a piece of ****. 1 billion in repairs? Give me a break. Please try and argue with me about that :lol: Thanks for fixing my grammatical errors. Its funny that you have nothing to argue about, so you pick out meaningless crap. Were you able to read and understand my sentences? YES, so get a life :ciappa:

    Thats the mindset you have, because your used to either a microsoft or nintendo product.

    ... what is 1 billion dollars in repairs to Microsoft?

    If sony had the same problem then you wouldn't get the same service that you do with MS i.e. free repairs, 3 years warranty on faulty items, even free postage.


    Fact being, that MS are correcting their mistake... Sony wont even send my brother a fix for his faulty TV (it wont turn on any more =S) - only got it 2 months ago.

    I've also had a broken XP disc and MS sent me a new one for free... just had to pay £2 for postage.

    PS3 w/o Intercooler - Gets hot
    PS3 w/ Intercooler - Doesn't get hot

    And it's a piece of crap?

    You obviously have never bought Nintendo products.. they are pretty indistructable bud. lol

    It would cool them down, but it wouldnt really matter either way.



    -- Funny story tho, i had a waterbottle behind my ps3. And the back exaust fans were on it for like 5 hours. I moved the waterbottle and it was literally hot water now. hehe

    When I first played a PS3 it got so hot that it distorted the image on the screen. Spending $17 so that doesn't happen was a worth while purchase IMO.
