PS3 overheats too often?

It happens mostly when playing GTA V. In that case, I need a fan on of else the system shuts itself off.

If it's something like 2K14, the times is longer, about 3 hours compared to GTA's 45 minutes or so without a fan.

When a fan is nearby, this does not occur.

I've had my slim PS3 since 2008, so is it getting old? That's what I'm leaning towards...

    It used to happen with me too. Then I kept my PS3 in an open space and it never happened again. Keep yours in the open!

    . Or maybe if it's dying, buy a new one.

    Hope this helps
