LA Noire
As LA Noire gets its UK release, some players in America are reporting overheating problems on their games consoles

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."

The company is refering users to the customer support website, and the Twitter feed. It is also directing PS3 owners toward the US and European PlayStation support pages.
