3.61 Firmware Overheating Some PS3s?
by Pete Davison May 18, 2011 13:10 PM PT
An entry on Rockstar's support pages suggests that the recent 3.61 firmware update may be to blame for erratic PS3 behavior.


According to Rockstar's support pages, some customers have reported that their PS3s turn themselves off while playing L.A. Noire. The problem seems to mostly affect older 60GB and 80GB fat models.

"Primary reports seem to be that updating to firmware 3.61 will cause PlayStations to overheat," reads the "answer" to the issue. "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."

The 3.61 firmware update is, of course, the one which Sony pushed out to all customers when they turned PSN back on -- so every Internet-connected PS3 that has been switched on in the last couple of days will have probably downloaded it.

Whats going on I've always loved my ps3 above all but with this I'm afraid to play any games for fear of my system being damaged ,, I like to see what Sony has to say now ... Sony little by little your making me hate you ,,,

If it's the ps3 slim I have trouble since day one with over heating I doubt something that re-writes the bios flash will have anything to do with your or my system overheating but from what I just read it could be a compatibility issues. Hmm if you have an original ps3 then it could be a problem with it as well. hmmm Hey I will look into it for you.

hmm to the op "original poster" that could be the possibility if you have a backwards compatibility ps3 your lucky very very lucky do not let anything bad happen to it. As it stands now i wouldn't update your system yet wait for Sony to release another firmware patch if your having trouble call them.

I have the final 80GB model made with backwards compatibility. I have yet to experience any sort of over heating.

I stillsay ps3 is better than xbox even if they are doing worse. The worst thing I have seen so far was it kick a whole crowd ofpeople out on a playstation home room at the sane time. I also see that mw2 does not work well online now and if anyone has naruto ultimate ninja storm 2 online for ps3 tell me I would like to test my skills

I have the full BC 60GB version and I haven't had any problems with overheating either. Was marathoning all night online too. i wouldn't be surprised if that was just a story Rockstar pushed out and it was actually their software causing the problem, rather than the firmware though.

Wish I could Fallout new vegas that long. :/ I can only play it for 1-3 hours. My thing gets pretty hot, unfortunately. :'|

New Vegas is different for some reason, i think its the game's fault (happens with oblivion and fallout 3 for me as well... )
