Hmm I haven't noticed any problems with mine, but the fan gets pretty loud if I play it on a hot day.

The original run of the ps3 is notorious for overheating problems. So many posts online about it, and mine also has had that issue before a few times especially during the summer when my apartment is hotter than normal. I have 2 friends that have the newer slimline ones, and both of them have not had issues with them. I will say a big determining factor is where you house yours, if it's in an entertainment system with mediocre air circulation/ventilation it exasperates the problem 10 fold :/

I honestly can't imagine firmware patching a physical issue such as overheating unless it's a matter of overclocking or something silly like that.

mine has been on for over a month now (i have the version after they got rid of backwards combatibility, so still the fat ver.) and i use it very extensively and ive never over heated it.
is there anything around it that could make it do that? oh! and did you test the fans? p.s does it beep b4 it shuts off during game? and if so how many times does it beep

mine has never over heated or even started burning up. I guess I'm lucky?
