The new Motorstorm time trial patch is available for download through the PSN Store, however it seems that although it has been delayed already it's still not ready to be released. After downloading the new patch Motorstorm is unbootable.
you have to delete the 1.1 fw updat for the game in order for the new one to work. Why it just doesn't over write it when downloaded is beyond me. But....it does work, just need to delete the old update from your game saves folder.
they should at least say this if there goin to do it like this
That would suck. Hopefully Sony fixes fast. Gotta feel sorry for those PS3 gamers who only have one game to play now since Motorstorm is gone. Lol go back to RFOM. Aren't those 2 games getting old? Lol. EDIT @ below: C'mon guys I was just poking some fun. Don't get all bent out of shape.
You have the nerve to talk, you know how many topics were posted on here where there was something wrong with an xbox patch or game demo download. People need to think before posting, and trying to be cool and or funny.
Bro you're right. Some people need to relax, and not take some things so seriously. It's just having fun. With that said, I still thing the 360 sux...hahaha
warhawk beta to hold me over..lol
hey sony guys, got a question...how long do game firmwares usually take to download and install? I was doing it for my cousin and his took a while and im not too sure if it was his internet or not.
Depends on how many people are downloading that patch, speed may vary.
like 20+ mins. But I usually download them on the computer and transfer via usb drive.
system firmware takes me about 3-5mins.... warhawk (800mb) took me about 7mins
But see guys, it's not only the 360, that has "growing pains" with Patches. Let alone there is not much games out for the PS3 getting patched and updates. How many games fixes, patches, and updates have Xbox games gotten compared to the PS3 gaming library? Well there is a lot. Of course gamers are never mad at Sony when they screw up, but so quick to judge MS. Of course this has nothing to do with MS. I know it will turn into "well 360 has more patches and screw ups"
And what does your useless rant have to do with motorstorm.
it has to do with the hypocrites on this site, they post flame about how MS sucks and the 360 suck, but when something happens to the ps3 they post "it's okay blah blah blah".
I own Motorstorm USA version with 1.1 already applyed and I can't get any update for 1.2 trough on-line in motorstorm
it's only available for the UK Motorstorm. something you'd *THINK this post would inform us of. as it stands, someone who comes here first for news would think that the update was available for the US version. this is what happens when a product or service is rushed to the market. i think they felt pressured to release *SOMETHING for Motorstorm, since plenty of it's fans were really eager for the update. now look, a buggy patch. isn't that what they were *FIXING for the American audience. a little patience goes a long way. i'd gladly deal with delay after delay, if it ultimately means that the gaming experience would be more solid because of it.
Just do what you do best and wait. Im sure they'll fix this ... eventually.
This is waiting HUH? what like waiting for a broken system to be repaired.
Like waiting for good titles to come out for the PS3 ... or a unified online service. Keep waiting! I'll be playing some awesome games on my 360 and PC.
I'd Rather have a temporary interrupting in my motorstorm playing then my 360 update destroying my Oblivion save...
I just re-read the article, and nowhere does it mention the 360, Oblivion, or 360 Updates. So why are you bringing them up? GTFOutta here spammer.
Hardware is booted. Software is started...
Updated PS3. Even after I delete 1.1 Update there is no 1.2 update in-game or in PS Store. (E USA) Anyone else not getting a Time Attack Mode?
The patch is only in the UK store, its not out over here yet, but hopefully US gets a fixed version.
The time trial mode needs the 1.2 update, hence with the 1.1 it fails to boot. To cure this go to the game data utility and delete the 1.1 update (as this removes the timetrial update too), boot up motorstorm (it will work now) and go to 'online' to get the 1.2 update, then redownload the timetrail mode from the PS store and all is well and will work fine. I know its long and stupid, but hey even the best games are bugged, just play Gears of War of ten minutes (I'm not flaming I loved that game). It does seem that it may have been a better idea to include the time trial mode in the 1.2 update, instead of making them separate, would have made life easier. Oh well, its a learning experience for Evolution and Sony never the less.
thre is a timetrial mode out?? I didnt even know that. Where the hell can I get it. Is it on the PSN Store?
On the PS store yup. But it requires the 1.2 patch to work. And this patch is only available for european gamers. Don't DL the TA mode until you get the 1.2 patch (which can be downloaded by just booting the online mode). And for people who "bricked" their game, just delete the 1.1 patch info (in game data managing) and go online to DL the 1.2 patch. THEN get the TA on the PSN. Not a big deal actually.
that is just sad
lol man, Motorstorm doesn work for you because of YOUR stupidity. Why didnt you read the instructions first? It says, go online with Motorstorm first and get an update of it (which is. 1.2) and only then go back to PSN store and download that time-mode update. Thats all mate. Read first next time, OK. Now, If your Motorstorm game doesnt boot anymore, just delete the old update which is 1.1 from your PS3 cross-media bar, reboot PS3, go online with Motorstorm again, get 1.2 update, install it, reboot your PS3 again, go to PSN store then and at last, get that freakin awesome time-mode attack update, which is for free. Awesome update.
deleted 1.1 and everything is silky smooth. P.S. - for the record don't take anything the "Snake Doctor" has to say about the PS3 seriously...... -- Snake_Doctor - 5 Hours ago PM Track Ignore 4.2 - for system firmware updates it usually takes a long time like 20+ mins. But I usually download them on the computer and transfer via usb drive. Agree(0) | Disagree(3) | Report | -- .......this guy doesn't have a clue on Earth what the hell he's talking about ~~ 20 minutes (+)...lol WTH? Kinda sounds like the guy that wrote the PSN vs. LIVE "review." Get outta my face.lol cheers
the problem is not the patch.. its the ppl who dont read and just install stuff. if everyone followed the instructions this wouldnt happen. go online first and update to 1.2. then go to the store and download the new mode. easy uh ?
People rush with out reading. You are supposed to download the update in motorstorm & then install the Time Attack mode. If you don't, just delete you 1.1 update & download it again. Dumb xbots think it's like their xbotch 3fixme.
