PS3 Heat Question

I bought a PS3 yesterday but it seems to be getting extremely hot. I have a entertainment cabinet thing with doors, and I put it on a shelf in there. Bad?

i don't like computers with no air flow... the PS3 included... these 'compartment' desks with a small box for the system are not a good idea...

you are only giving it warm air to circulate and the cooling effect is lessened... and the ambient heat builds up...

let it breath... it will prolong the life of the device...
