i dont know about anybody else, but ive had my ps3 from day 1 and its never made any loud fan noises, i can play games all day long and the fan noise stays quite all the time, its only once in a blue moon tht the fan speeds up, yet still, its not noisey
maybe u could try puttin like a desktop fan pointin at it just to be on the safe side, keep ur ps3 kool, or speak to sony, to see what they can do about it.
i suppose it all depends on wht u think is noisey, lol

is it normal for the ps3 to sound like a hoover after half an hour of play?im getting a bit worried that its going pete tong and as its just inside its warranty i want to get some advise if possible
it all depends.
the weather is warm today and if the console has been running with a game like GTA IV then the fan will kick in pretty quickly and go really loud.
if you are worried about it the chck all the vents are clear and also that the console is free of obstructions to allow good airflow around the console. another good thing to do would be to open the windows in the room you are playing to get some cooler air circulating to drop the ambient temprature in the room.

My launch day 60Gb is quite noisy now, but not as noisy as my year old 360...
It is alot more noisy than it was before, but it has been for the best part of a year now I guess...
I'm not worried tbh, after all it is a 29month old Console so I am half expecting it to explode at any time

If you hear a lot of fan noise then the best thing to do is to cover the PS3 with a thick duvet or blanket. It stops the racket!
I would recomend, just for safety reasons cover the thick duvet with a thinner wet towel just in case it catches fire.
over that i would also put some rubber lining just to stop any static shocks...
