Rockstar and Sony issue fresh LA Noire statement

"Very small" amount of players complaining about PS3s overheating

Rockstar and Sony have issued a joint statement about consumers running into PS3 hardware problems while playing LA Noire, which hits the UK today.

Following on from yesterday's statements - in which Sony said the game is also crashing "other consoles" (Xbox 360) - the pair said via the PlayStation Blog:


"We have received a very small number of customer support questions about PS3s 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," they added.

Players experiencing any issues with LA Noire or PS3 hardware were urged to contact:
