    It'll be fine for a long while, but if your worried, just make sure there isn't is blocking the vents, and you should be set.

    Well, considering GT5 had 24 hour races, it can be on at least that long

    I've left mine on for 48 hrs max. Unsurprisingly most ps3's are very durable, that's why if you get the YLOD, you get even more pissed off

    i know why your asking...several hours is fine imo but i think the longer you do everytime
    then the quicker you are to having it malfunction

    Mine is on for about 18-20 hours a day, every day, for the last 3-4 years.

    I think it can last as long as the vents have plenty of space from it to let the PS3 breathe. around 24 hours at least with those GT5 24 hour races

    the most i left my on was about a full 24 hours or even more
    but pretty sure the ps3 can be one for one week straight with no problems
