A few hours ago I was playing GTA IV when I decided to stop playing and turned off the console, my problem started there the PS3 flashed indefinately and wouldn't shut down. I could still heard the disc loading like I was still playing (awkward moment), for the first time I had to unplog the cable because it wouldn't turn off even if i was pressing the power button until it turned off.
Now don't ask me if it was a red light flashing because I don't remember but the console worked just fine after that (I only tried to launch GTA IV again just to see if I lost anything), I went to the recovery menu and did "Restore File system" and "Rebuild database" because I thought that system file could be corrupted (when I was doing this I did notice that my console was very hot but I don't think that it was overheating). Anyone can tell me if my console is really dying or if I shouldn't be worried about this?
