Good thing I like to play games, otherwise it'd be a $600 paperweight!
I have seen almost no complaints about heat or fan noise on the PS3, mine has been running 24/7 since Folding @ Home was released & I have never heard my fan at my regular vewing postition during movies, games or Folding.
Do you have plenty of ventilation & is it away from other heat generating equipment like a reciever?
If you are hearing your fan then it's on high speed if it's running on high it must be getting hot so check your circulation around it.
