Recently after own a brand new PS3 slim console for roughly 6 months, the blu-ray disc reader decided to randomly break, hindering me from playing any blu-ray games/movies.
I honestly can say I played the crap out of the system, especially when fifa 12 and battlefield 3 came out on release, going 4-5 hours a day. And I felt like the PS3 was giving off a good bit of heat, but I feel like it wasn’t overheating to draw concern.
Am I overworking my PS3? Should I get some sort of fan accessory to cool my PS3?
I am just asking these questions, because I will be getting a PS3 refurbished slim model from playstation HQ soon, and I’d rather not deal with a hardware issue, especially if I somehow caused it to break (even though I’m skeptical to think I directly caused a brand new system to crap out in not even a year, because I’d like to think a system I chipped in easily $300 for would last at least 3 years before having any issues).
