I heard a loud noise from the fan and the LED standby light flashed red (no other colours). I pressed the power button once and the light stopped flashing. Am i right in saying that this happened due to the console overheating and shutting down as a safety measure to protect the console or do you think the console is going to break? As I was only playing for about an hour and a half when it happened. And I vacuum the PS3 vents out every so often to keep them clear and it has plenty of space to breath.
