PSInsider writes: Firmware update 3.01 still fails to solve the issue completely.
I never have issues with my PS3 thank god.
I can't speak for everyone but.. Uncharted still freezing Battlefield 1943 still freezing Fat Princess still freezing Marvel vs Capcom 2 still freezing I can't imagine what all our new PS3 owners are thinking when there brand new console is bugged. *Edit* Burnout just froze on my brother as I was typing. Sony just revert us back to pre-firmware 3.00 COME ON SONY FIX IT NOW!!
My ps3 YLOD 2 weeks ago. Aswell as thanking God you might wana pray, just to be safe. :P
of course you dont the ps3 is flawless its the best thing on this planet!
Karma is a b...h! After making fun of 360 and RROD, this comes back to hunt PS3 owners(like my self, but i have no issues so far). A bit funny.
I think its funny people want to compare it freezing one game, to bricking consoles like the NXE. Judging by the disagrees going around I can tell there are alot of xbox fans in here, Why is that??
add LittleBigPlanet to the list. Come on Sony it's really annoying
Well there's a big difference between freezing issues and the red ring of death. YLOD issues are not sweeping the nation, but if you did some research on the forums the big problem is freezing. This can be fixed with firmware updates unlike your RROD epidemic.
Wutter Yeah sure every game you have freezes after 3.01. How about you post some vids instead of just posting a comment that a 5 year can post. Let's see we have 24 comments here now and 5 people complaining. Out of 23 million consoles that is .00000021739%. I am not saying it doesn't happen, but some people having problems don't equal RROD like epidemic. I personally have never had any problem with any firmware update and i have 82 games so go figure. BTW i have a 60gb first gen. @cooliris give me a break you don't have a Ps3 and couldn't afford one even if I gave you the money to buy it. BTW some random guy on a random site blogs about this and it's news?
Do all you guys have ps3 slims or something? It's really surprising that all of a sudden these people come out reporting problems. I got a 60gb though, and haven't had any problems with any update.
My Little Big Planet has issues to. The screen goes black for 1 second randomly while you here a loud pop. I hope Uncharted 2 is able to run on the PS3. I hope the devs are not pushing PS3 beyond it's capabilities.
I'm not talking out of my ass. If you check my comment history you will see that I am actually a Sony fanboy. I am on my 3rd PS3, and if buying 3 PS3's doesn't show my gratitude towards Sony then I don't know what does.
but i always saw you screen name as cool girls gb. on topic you fail. you put that uncharted 2 blu ray within 5 meters of a 360 and it would choke AND red ring. For the many people who have purchased a slim and are having these issues...i feel for ya. Hopefully sony will fix this sooner rather than later. Ive used this news to stop me from updating my slim..........sorry guys
a patch to fix a patch that was supposed to fix a patch. sony needs to get their Sh*t together. These kinds of problems should not be happening on consoles.
wutter You are supposed to l..k Sonys you know what, then you will get agrees, on this site you can't speak the truth, only what fanboys want to hear, for them that is the truth. Some sick people on internet
I've NEVER had a problem with Burnout. EVER.
Wutter Then show me a youtube vid of all of those games freezing.. Uncharted still freezing Battlefield 1943 still freezing Fat Princess still freezing Marvel vs Capcom 2 still freezing and I'll stand corrected, and will apologize. I just find it hard to believe that many games are freezing on millions of consoles and Sony hasn't scheduled a press conference yet. BTW FYI you can revert back to an old firmware I think.
Is the issue with the PS3 Slim and firmware 3.0 / 3.1 or is it with the firmware? anyone knows?
"sony needs to get their Sh*t together. These kinds of problems should not be happening on consoles. " Aint just Sony, is it?
Yeah, a critical hardware failure that requires you to send in a console for 2-3 weeks is similar to a small game freeze that can be remedied with pressing the PS button or resetting the console. GOOD ONE!
Let's see.. I don't have a youtube account, don't feel like making one, my girlfriend has our digital camera, and on top of all that I could careless about proving this to someone who acts 10 years old. And no, you can't revert back to an older firmware.
jleack yes because there is nothing "cooler" then resetting my console 10 times a day, i mean that will prolong its life span, now won't it? What a joke, way to spin. Don't know how it works with 360(because i dont have it), but when my PS3 got broke i waited almost 2 months for Sony to send me new one, yes 2 months! I should add that this happened in Europe.
burnout paradise freezing ??? I THINK NOT ... i do think the problem comes from your hard drive ...not from the system update ..
uncharted kept freezing with 3.0 everything else was fine. now uncharted is not freezing, but batman: AA does randomly after 3.01
Burnout was running fine for about an hour and a half then it froze, just like Uncharted. Battlefield froze on the connecting pop up, MVC2 froze on me at the title screen, Fat Princess froze while connecting to server.
I am affraid to turn on my 3.00 ps3 for fear it will freeze and yet I turn on my Dec05 360 and watch episodes of the office every night on netflix. Oh the irony. edit: @wood. Pretty good comeback. I left that one open didnt I. It wont matter that I game on my elite and use this system as a media player. You are right I dont game on this one as much as my other one.
I experienced a freeze while destroying a turret truck in inFamous a couple nights ago. Also, I experienced a strange glitch where the screen went pixelated before the video went out (but resetting the console fixed that). Add on top of that the web browser freezes my console quite often (but that problem has been there since launch). This definitely makes me even more paranoid since buying the slim. lol No problems, pre-3.0 or post, with Uncharted, though.
yeah, a pslim freezing and a 360 brickin are SOOO similar....karma is something you obviously dont know the meaning of. ha ha 'yet I turn on my Dec05 360 and watch episodes of the office every night on netflix. Oh the irony' no games to play huh, thats the irony right there;)
I like how you bring up the 360s problems to somehow justify the ps3 freezing problems. I had problems with uncharted so I believe it. Im glad I got to finish it but it was annoying to restart the console everytime the game froze. Sure RRoD is worse, but it doesnt make freezing games on PS3 any less annoying. Kz2 and MGS4 have worked fine for me but uncharted froze alot. I wish I could revert back to 2.8 because the features he added wernt worth it to me. Edit-- vvv-- yeah so, hes a failure too just like all the people who get butthurt and add more off topic crap.
Actually if you read Unbiased1 brought(NXE Killing Xboxes) up first. Logic Fail?
Uncharted hasn't froze. Fat Princess hasn't froze. MAG hasn't froze. Batman hasn't froze. Dead Space hasn't froze. Valkyria Chronicles hasn't froze. No one from Sony came over and slapped me in the mouth. Kanye West didn't interrupt this post because OSDT is coming out. My controller hasn't exploded NOR have I needed to replace the battery (i.e. buy a new controller). I'm sure something was going on or else there wouldn't be a 3.01, but don't blow sh!t outta proportion. Haters. ...and these NXE comparisons are just funny.
Sony can't even code correctly for their own system.
I play Battle field 1943 and MvsC 2 alot, and they never freeze, i have a 80 gig motorstorm bundle ps3.
keep it tight ;)
