    System Overheat Error and shut-down, days-old Console.

    I bought 500 Gig GTA V PS3 after my Piano YLOD for the second time, and that was on thursday The 26th, haven't had it a week yet. I did all the research and everyone said it was fine and it ran quiet, I've literally ONLY played GTA V, the movie Paul on it since i've had it. Everyone said the system ran super quiet, but I can hear it whirring when playing GTA, and tonight I attempted to play again and got a message that said 'The system is overheating, it needs to cool down for a while.' That displayed for about 20 seconds then it shut down. I let it sit for an hour and attempted to turn it back on, and the fan blew at FULL power, the DS3 wouldn't sync to the system and I got an error about improper shutdown. Force-shut the system down again as the fan was kicking up a racket.



    Suggestions on what to do about this would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Do you have it in a location with a lot of area around it?

    Though if your having issues within the first week I'd honestly return it for a new one.

    They gave you a defective PS3 so you would preorder a PS4.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    I have owned 3 newer model PS3s over the last year and all of them had issues out of the box that were apparently fixed once I signed in and checked the box to stay signed in.
