So it looks like even Sony are not exempt from hardware glitches…
It seems like if you have a PS3 with a serial number of either CE133190xxx or CE133212xxx then you may be out of luck.
There are reports coming out of the woodwork that these units begin to emit a loud whining noise that makes it virtually impossible to watch a movie.
Not quite a red ring of death but a glitch none the less. Sony seem quite happy to swap it out for a non-broken model though so don’t panic.
