CC: Gamers are complaining that the God of War Collection is freezing on their PlayStation 3 system. They claim that the game starts freezing after the games first cut-scene, then later on in the first mission.
And by these "gamers" you mean 360 fanboys The forum only has like 3 pages with only like 4 people replying over and over
lol. Havnt had that freez on me once. finished GoWI and no complaints.. friend beat both and he has no complaints. =/ might be an isolated issue or w/e.
same here.. finished gow I on spartan today and had no freezing.. only frustration I had was how damn hard it was.. I forgot how challenging it was.. but worth it.. im only lacking 2 trophies till i get my platinum.. speed run and challenge of the gods... but all in all its a superb game... fav of all time...
Don't discount the complaints simply because they affect a game on a system that you are partial to. It's a shame that there seems to be freezing, but it's not game-breaking and I'm sure they'll patch it in the near future.
"Don't discount the complaints simply because they affect a game on a system that you are partial to." Exactly. Complaints are a GOOD thg. Thats how things eventually get fixed. Reasoning with a fanboy is like reasoning with a child. They always like ta flip things around so that it benefits their argument. Just like the genius that mentioned the 360....in a God of War article. /facepalm
Funny. I said the same thing about the ps3 fanboys who clearly sabotaged that infamous RROD survey.
Jesus christ, I thought I was a PS3 fanboy, and now that I give attention to a potential problem with a recently released game, I get disagreed for it? Doesn't sound very fair to me. Maybe this will get me some agrees: PS3 FTW!!! There, blind fanboyism always triumphs. I chose the PS3 because it has more games that I'm interested in, as well as the fact that it can double as a do-it-all media center, not to mention that the PSN community is vastly superior to the children on Xbox Live. But PS3 fanboys on N4G treat every comment that isn't in blind praise of Sony as if it's a sleight against god. The PS3 is a machine, it's not perfect, and you should get over it. Anyways, back to Demon's Souls...
Resistance1 (20v20 day one): "Oh the graphics aren't like gears - FAIL! (gears pushing 4v4 in year2) Motorstorm (never been done before physics and lighting at that time): "Meh, boring. Not enough content!" Folklore: "Meh, looks gay" Eye of Judgement: "is teh cards lolz. I like Uno" Heavenly Sword: "IT'S TOO SHORT! but MW2 & ODST SP length is fantastic!" Lair: "lol, look at teh grass!" Uncharted: "It's just Dude Raider lolz; boring gameplay." MGS4: "TEH MOVIE LOLZ!" KZ2: "Meh, too many exploding barrels and iz teh gray! but I love the colour pallet in gears of war" GT5: " TEH BUMBER CARS" Heavy Rain: "LOLZ, all you do is watch a stripper and do QTE!" GoW3: "Boring graphics! it's the same gameplay as gow1&2" The Last Guardian: "meh, for gay gamers that like to cry" and on and on and on. If you're a PS3 gamer and don't try out exclusives cause of internet banter or reviews, you're a damned fool.
And that is why the latest firmware is a great in a way that it includes the crash/freeze feedback function. No one knows which complaints are legitimate anymore except for those proven problems that come with a 3 year warranty.
Was that ever fixed?
bro you just said every single negative comment i heard about ps3 exclusive given by "gaming journalists" and the xbox fanboys. i swear that if i would have listened to them before i bought my ps3 i probably woulda been on my 5th xbox now. but u forgot about tools of destruction having too much variety. thats my favorite "gaming journalist" rant.
Lol, I await the day where a PS3 game is *finally* accepted. Really now...this can't be a big problem.
Ratchet & Clank: "TOO MUCH VARIETY!" Killzone2 - "NOT ENOUGH COLOUR!!!!" Resistance2 - "TOO MUCH COLOUR!!!!" GoW Collection - "IT'S THE SAME AS GOD OF WAR 1&2!!.. for 20bucks each!!! Ripoff!!... I loves me my $60 halo odst though"
I suppose you have proof 360 fanboys are complaining about freezing? If not, then please, your making me laugh. God forbid there's a problem with a Sony game. There are freezing issues. It's noticeable enough that people are complaining. Get over it and stop making petty excuses.
Really? Freezing issues is FUD? It's funny that you don't have any counter evidence and you ignore the fact that people are having issues only to make a totally irrelevant comment. Oh, how cute, you listed a bunch of fanboy responses. It works both ways. There are fanboy comments against games from 360, but oh no, 360 fans are just attacking poor SonY! It's unbelievable that you put the blame on other people. I hope you dont work for Sony. What a joke it would be if your game froze and you called Sony and all they said was "Your a 360 fanboy!" People have freezing issues. What the HELL Does this have to do with 360 fanboys? Stop blaming other people and realize people are having issues with the game.
...no, they mean PS3 gamers and their consoles failing because of God of Collection. And yes, I work at a Best Buy and we got swamped with calls in our Geek Squad department asking why the game is crashing.
I haven't had any problems with the God of War Collection, but my God of War 3 demo did freeze once when I busted out with the wings to fly.
I haven't had any problems with the God of War Collection either. The demo for GoW III has been fine as well.
I thought it was just me. I have my copy of killzone 2 freeze for a couple of seconds but not completely freeze. im glad its not only me. has anyone else here played killzone 2 and the voices are not synched? most likely i just got a bad copy of killzone 2, or my 500 gig hdd. If anyone can help it would be appreciated. Thanks.
@DatNJDom81 - The KZ2 freezing you are experiencing are probably due to stage loading and saving. The game will briefly cease all screen activity for a few seconds to load the next portion of a stage or to save. It indicates loading or saving after unfreeze at the bottom right/left corner. Might require turning on Subtitle or something in Options setting to see activity display. As for the voice syncing and repeat issue I also experience this as well during the cutscenes. The long loading and voicing syncing all became very noticeable after the second patch or so. Originally, KZ2's SP was smooth prior to patches from what I can recall. I don't think it's your game disc because I pre-ordered KZ2 and only started to experience these things after the first few patches were installed to fix MP issues. These are very minor annoyances that don't ruin the game in any way unless you let it. Happy gaming.
Thanks bro. Bubbles
I am around 5 hours in and haven't had any freezing issues either.
A question for those of you who own an American GOW Collection. Does it have Spanish Language available? Thanks in advance...
Got there without a single hiccup. -1 point for sub HD cinemas though. The game looks so clean during play, then the cut scenes come in and ruin the otherwise beautiful presentation. Certainly not a deal breaker. It just brings my 10 to a 9. Oh well, still worth every penny.
It's kind of funny that the cut-scenes are a step down in the graphics department. It's usually the other way around. Bluepoint said they couldn't do any improvements on the cut-scenes for some reason.
No problem, it just makes the game look even better lol. It's kinda the same as Ninja Gaiden Sigma, it had the same cutscenes as the original Ninja Gaiden and they weren't updated as well.
MW2 also freezes D=
Now i'm having problems with mine. Just got it today and the cuscenes essing up :(
Can the collection be downloaded off PSN? I don't want to turn it on and check. Also, I downloaded 3.10 FW and I cannot find the Facebook feature on the XMB. I thought I saw someone with it on the XMB in a video. How do I get it there?
The collection is a Blu Ray exclusive. Facebook is in Account Management. It's not what you expect it to be.
Sounds like a delicious frozen treat.
havent played it yet, even if i bought it 2 days ago... too busy playing Assassin's Creed 2 (awesome game between, better than the first one with alot of ameliorations). But i played the GoW3 demo... wow..
Heh, that's exactly what i'm going through.Just picked up GOWC and AC2 last night.Haven't played the collection yet either.AC2 is just to damn good. I'll try it out later tonight tho
Clearly players need to stop pointing the head of Medusa directly at their television screens.
LOL! Good one man
What's new on the PS3? Every game released has been plagued with freezes and bugs. Even the almighty 1st party studios can't stabilize their games on the PS3. I don't blame them, its the hardware that causes these problems.
"...its the hardware that causes these problems." Look up the words "hardware" and "problems" on a search engine and you'll come upon nothing but the Xbox 360. But you guys like RRoD don't you? It serves as that little night light when you go to bed and keeps the Boogey Man (or is that the Evil Monkey?) away.
guess im one of the lucky ones? never happened to me and i just saved the Oracle with out anything going wrong.
I just had my ps3 repaired (had YLOD) 2 weeks ago, cost me $150.....and now this bullshit!!!!!!! Cut scenes keep freezing....HELP!
nice try though. on topic: no probs here
Buddy, YLOD is extremely rare. I only know one person who's ever gotten it, but when I go online it's as if every other PS3 owner has been hit by the yellow light. I'm calling B.S. on this.
In my Geek Squad precinct we've had customers come in with several PS3 consoles that have failed, actually more so than I've seen with people coming in with Xbox 360 consoles. Of course those people might be sending it out themselves and skipping us altogether, but the point is that YLoD is real.
@Comnei You said this: "BYE BYE SONY...... Well playstation has completed its epic fall from grace. They just lost 650 million on the ps3 in 3 months...so sad. Sony can't afford these losses. 99$ arcade will finish sony...see ya ken kutarahgi....take ur 2nd job and SHOVE IT! " ... and you bought a PS3 + repaired for 150$? Wow, you're really stupid then... or you're just the M$ fanboy of the worse kind. I guess it's the last one ;)
No problems here...yet (knocks on wood)
Xbots wish it's %60 failure rate wich is only possible on the rrodbox3shitty.
Even most product of china have better reliability than a %60 failure rate.
So if people would rather buy a crap console with a 60% chance of failing over a ps3.............what does that say about the ps3? At least when my 360 got red rings microsoft fixed it free. YLOD raped me good for $150 cash. I will NEVER buy another sony product.
Wait a minute? this game is out?! Pfft let me guess, only in the USA :@ F*CK SAKE I really want to pick this up
*Cough* GEOW 1-2 < Nothing can beat those buggy pos.
Not freezing on me at all!!
Hey is anyone else having a hard time find this in the stores? I wanted to get it at Toys R Us for the deal theyre having now but neither store in my area has it in yet? Its really wierd
I prefer getting games on Amazon, but next time I'm at a game store I'll look around for it. I don't think Sony realized how popular the game would be, and the marketing hasn't really done it justice.
my works perfectly
i'm playing it on a 60gig BC PS3, and am about over 3 quarters through GoW and no freezes. game is brilliant by the way. any fans of the game not certain about double-dipping: DON'T WORRY. the upgrade is loads better than the PS3 upscaling job of the PS2 versions, and the gameplay is top notch, as always. it really is like playing the game with fresh eyes again. it's gorgeous. i didn't realize HOW beautiful the art design was in GoW until you see it in HD, with smoothed edges and crisp textures. David Jaffe doesn't get enough credit for spear-heading the GoW team and really pushing them to push the PS2. God of War 2 is even BETTER than GoW in terms of how the upscale has improved it. another note: those IGN shots are way too washed out. it doesn't look like that on my HDTV, and is very colorful. don't know what kind of capture card they're using, or TV settings, but their screens don't really do the game justice.
Mine works fine but my boys is causing him some issues. Maybe it's the hardware not the software?
no problems freezing here. Its deff an isolated incident.
No it means me you freaking retard. I've had nothing but freezing issues with the game and there's alot more people out the with the same problems.
But-but-bu-bu-but itz on blu rayzzzz
no problems for me so far. im bummin bc i cant update my PS3 due to time warners wack ass service repair. thank God for my iphone which im using to type this message and check N4G. Can ne1 gimme their opinion on 3.10
Well, to listen to certain parties here, EVERY PS3 games gets 'freezes'. Zero problems with my (imported) copy.
