Rockstar's LA Noire detective game – released in the UK today – may be garnering rave reviews, but some players in America have reported overheating problems with their consoles, causing them to freeze up.
The issue is said to affect older versions of Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 consoles, as well as the new PS3 Slim. As a result, Rockstar has released the following statement:
"We have received a very small number of customer support questions about PS3's overheating or shutting down while playing LA Noire. At this time, Rockstar Games and Sony can confirm that neither LA Noire or firmware update 3.61 are causing the PS3 hardware to overheat.
"We are both committed to working hard to find solutions to this and any issues that may arise."
