I have a 60gb as well. I never noticed the fan noise while playing video games. The other day though, I was watching Spiderman on Blu-ray, 3/4th of the way through the movie, I heard the fan kick on, dam that fan was loud.. It was louder the then my tv, and I had the volume on the tv up.. After about 5 mins, I blocked it out, and enjoyed the rest of the movie. I do enjoy the PS3 though, so some noise won't deter me to much, I will just have to live with..
