From Dust overheating my console

The arcade game From Dust is overheating my console. I've tested my console with other games for an extended period of time and I can play them for as long as I want without any overheating. This issue only happens with From Dust and when it does overheat, the air coming from the console isn't nearly as warm as the air it produces when playing other games, e.g. GTA 4.

Hey mate, what is the space like around your console? Does it have plenty of room to breathe? Also, can you check the ports on the console, to be sure they're not clogged with dust?

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Do check this as it is something that sometimes over looked. I haven't had any problems with from dust at all. You say other games work ok, are they installed or just running from the disc?

I know one poster in this thread was able to resolve their issue by deleting the game, clearing their cache, and then re-downloading it via the download history. Can you please give that a try?

Same problem here.  From Dust is triggering my console to think it's overheating.  I played the through the demo multiple times, no problem.  Bought the full version, played for maybe 10 minutes, saved and shutdown.  When I try to play it now it red rings as if it's overheating after about 5 minutes of play.

Tried deleting the game, clearing the cache, and then re-downloading.  Still a problem.  Tried deleting the game, the save file, and clearing the cache.  Now it won't even get past the intro cinematic.  Any ideas?

Still happening.

Watched about 1.5 hours of streaming Netflix last night.  No problems.

Started up From Dust and the system "overheated" and shut down in about 5 minutes.

Then restarted the console and played Fear for about 2 hours.  No problems.

The system is not overheating, ventilation is not a problem.

The problem is with From Dust on my console hardware (launch system).
