Don't worry.

 

Look at it this way. If all you ever read were the crime statistics supplied by the police, you would think all that ever happens is criminal.

 

People post here because they have problems and are looking for help.

Well, you have nothing to worry about for about 11 more months. Then you can sweat.

Think about it mate, this is a PS3 forum and most of the users here are those that have had problems with their PS3 and so have signed up for help. I am sure there are hundreds of thousands of gamers with PS3s in perfect condition.

As long as you keep your system in a well ventilated space and vaccum it probably 1-2x every other month or so then you should be fine. If for some reason your game freezes and the green light goes to flashing red then you should leave it off for at least 30-60 min. because that means its overheating which I just found out. Otherwise, you should be fine; at least for the next 11 month time period as mentioned earlier.
