Recentley my ps3 has been having problems with the graphics. I guess its called artifacts or something but when I try playing games that is in first person it will work fine for a little bit. like in Fallout 3 as soon as I get out of Vault 101 and move foward it looks like the pixels are stretching or goes black and all you can see is the HUD and there is sound, its the same with Bioshock. This also happend with Oblivion right as I escaped the sewers, and in Far Cry 2 right from the beginning everything looks stretched and I can not see. oh and there seem to be these green flashing orbs in Fallout 3 and green flashing stars in Bioshock before the graphics began to mess up. I also noticed that the stretching would go away or not be as severe when the camera was moved to a certain position.
I looked around the internet and it seems to be a overheating problem, is this the case? The longest I have ever left it on was I guess a lil bit over 9 hours while it was running a game.
Is there a simple fix for this or do I have to use my warranty, I will add that this console is a exchange since my last one wouldnt read disc's and I've only had this console for a couple weeks and the other for over a year before problems began. luckly I chose to get warranty for this one. If you need any more info about whats going on let me know
