slimline Ps2 probs

Hope this is the right place to post!
I got hold of a slimline ps2 just before christmas which has been fine but I have noticed that it has got much louder and very hot recently, does anyone elses? Thinking it may be faulty - Its standing up on the stand and has nothing behind it Is this a known problem?? Don't want to look stupid if I take it back to be told they all get hot

I've got a mate who works at a Sony distribution warehouse and apparantly there have been quite a few problems with units overheating, so i wouldn't worry too much about being laughed at if you take it back. Mine isn't overheating but its started to get picky about which DVD's it plays and seeing as I bought it just before Xmas i'm a bit miffed!

erm, all slimline get hot??

the width of the PS2 is so slim that, even with a small amount of heat will still cause the unit to get hotter...

It doesn't just get hot though, its much louder than it ever was. Compared it with a friends tonight and his is much quieter. Think I should contact Sony and see what they have to say

I think the slim line ps2 was a waist of time why buy a prototype PS2 when you can get one of the old ones .. for the same price and they are silenter and work much better .. buying one of these things was just asking for trouble ... besides the PS2 is almost dead the next and last big title to be released for the PS2 is metal gear solid 3 snake eater ... once this game goes so does the PS2 im affraid and good ridence too its time sony pulled the finger out and designed the ps3 a little bit quicker instead of the miny ps2 ( the PSP ) my god what is it with sony and the PS2 i personally think they are milking it for extra money out of a dieing product.

That's the most hilarious load of rubbish I have EVER heard.

It's dying?! Hahahaha, do you know how many games are sold each month in each territory? More than you'd think. Millions in fact. The last big title WAS Metal Gear Solid 3, which came out very recently, so what's your point? Gran Turismo 4 is next. Along with loads of other games.

With around 70 million consoles sold, I don't think Sony are going to give up the ghost on the console just yet.

there is no doubt about it the PC is by far the more powerful machine by the time the xbox 2 and the playstation 3 come out the pc will be 2 times more advanced than them
