    I had heard that it pumps out quite a bit of heat from its many vents, but goddam, you need not put the central heating on in your room when its on.

    Only played it for 5 mins and i went to move it and the amount of heat coming from it really surprised me.

    Strange. I checked mine last night after playing Resistance for a couple of hours and was amazed at the lack of heat.
    Could feel some warmth like an air dryer on low heat but no part of the casing was hot to the touch.

    My 360's ran hotter.

    Are you using a stepdown transformer? - mine produces very little heat. I use my 360 for all my heating needs.

    Ok it might not be that hot but there is some heat coming from it. The case is cool to the touch though. Im not using a stepdown. Just a kettle lead with a 3A fuse.

    I should hope so! - heat coming out is a good thing - is it coming out quietly? even better!

    LOL this allways makes me giggle. Gone are the days on consoles having the processing power of a Toaster. These are essentially high end machines running heat generating components. Much like PC's

    What do you expect?

    It is quiet but i was playing it last night and after about an hour i noticed it got louder. As if a second fan kicked in or it sped up. I doubt i would have noticed it during the day, as i would have the tv louder.

    ...Ok so what are you complaining exactly then? First it was "hot as hell", and that it's so hot that you should keep the central heating off, now it's "not that hot" and the case is actually cool...
    Looks to me like people just like to complain for the hell of it. You should be very grateful Sony actually tried to make the console as quiet as possible, it really shows the expertise in how to make hardware.
