-Long story short: Some PS3 players reported their older 60 and 80 gig fat models overheating after playing L.A. Noire.
-Rockstar blamed it on Sony's latest firmware update.
-Sony assured that the update was solid, and that it was in fact the GAME.
-Rockstar retracted their statement and confirmed that it was the game.
-Rockstar confirmed that it is affected both PS3 AND Xbox 360.

So long story short... if you own L.A. Noire, be careful.

Glad the Uncanny Valley in this game freaks me the fuck out and I didn't buy it :lol: And overheated 360 usually equals RRoD so I'm gonna steer clear now for sure.

But I've upgraded my fat to 300 gigs... so I'm cool, right?

Played the whole game on my Fat 80gb model using the RCA output (can't afford a nice TV), no problems for me. Of course I didn't play it in one sitting, but still.
