Rockstar Games and Sony Released a Joint Statement on L.A. Noire Regarding Overheating


PS and Rockstar have both just released the following statement:

“We have received a very small number of customer support questions about PS3s overheating or shutting down while playing L.A. Noire. At this time, Rockstar Games and Sony can confirm that neither L.A. Noire or firmware update 3.61 are causing the PS3 hardware to overheat. We are both committed to working hard to find solutions to this and any issues that may arise. If you are experiencing any issues with L.A. Noire or your PS3 hardware, please contact technical support using any of the means provided below:
Rockstar Support: www.rockstargames.com/support
Rockstar Support on Twitter: twitter.com/RockstarSupport
PlayStation 3 Support: http://us.playstation.com/support/ ”

I have been playing with no issues, however, while a screen is loading, I have noticed that I hear my disc, or HDD running more than usual. Anyone else have any issues with crashing or overheating?

    That’s because you were using Nitro(glycerin) to cool your PS3 when you should’ve been using Liquid Nitro(gen)! Dooooh!

    <—- longing for peer approval, how did I do? lol

    I haven’t had a problem. Seems to be running right about average.

    I’ll admit that this headline freaked me out a little bit, as I have had Noire on pause for quite some time. But, just by feeling my console, it seems to be going about fine right now.
