    Played this game for an unhealthy amount of time last night (i.e. six hours) and got the YLOD on my 80gb fat.

    Instead of buying a heat gun and watching youtube videos I'm thinking of getting a slim instead and I need GB community validation. Any PS3 slim users experiencing problems playing this? Thanks.

    I've played like 11 cases and I froze twice: once when I tried to access the PS store and once when I was looking at a suspect and tried to question him at the same time. No heat issues otherwise on my 60GB PS3

    I played through the entire game and finished it yesterday. I did some pretty long marathoning and I only had 1 time where it started hitching a little bit. I left the area and it went away.

    I've played for about 4 hours and I havn't experienced any problems so far. Tbh, with all of this news appearing about consoles overheating I was a little weary of putting it in, but it's been ok so far, I have a PS3 Slim 120 gig model.

    @RampageAssassin: Yep, I think that's just the game though. I have a 60 GB fat and it tends to stutter pretty frequently. I think this is the first time that I've seen such prominent stutter like this in a console game. Frame rate is one thing, but this game is jittery.

    finished the game and haven't had any problems on my slim.

    only time it locked up was trying to access the PSN store, but that's understandable.

    120GB slim no issues froze once but it was my fault because I hit the store button in the extras by accident when meaning to hit the social club button.

    I'm having some issues with audio sync when fighting and conversations. It seems like the audio is about 1.5 seconds behind what's going on in the scene then it suddenly catches up. It's really weird. I have a launch 60gb fat.

    Man I don't like how this game is killing PS3's.  Or is it just their time to die?  Either way when I get home I'm backing up all my saves before I pop this game back in.
