Sony Denies PS3 Overheating Problems

A recent report by Macquarie Securities’ David Gibson claimed a number of PS3s experienced overheating problems and some had to be constantly restarted as a result. This had a knock on effect with Sony’s shares decreasing in value.

Well Sony Europe has refuted these claims releasing this statement to gamesindustry.biz:

“SCE can categorically deny that there’s any problems with PS3 units overheating. As could be seen on the TGS floor by the tens of thousands of media and public attendees, both the hardware and software worked flawlessly.”

I wasn’t there so I can’t comment but if the overheating problems were true how come there hasn’t been more reports stating overheating problems from the various websites that were represented at TGS?

There were 1000s of people there so surely if this did happen on more than one PS3 I’m pretty sure it would be blasted all over the web by now.
