So it is happening on both consoles.

Which means it is Team Bondi's fault

Just a glitch. It will be patched like GTA. Till then use autosave and just reset if it happens. No big deal.

My game froze when I tried to access the store from LA Noire's menu. Lol def my fault on that one :P

From a person on Gamespot:

"From your statement I can understand you don't have any experience with how softwares work. Let me try explain in simple terms. 3.61 makes changes to, say 100 instructions on the PS3. Lets say there is a bug on 3 of those instructions which comes into play only when they're executed in specific order. Now, lets say those instructions are some not-so-often used feature but LA Noire uses it extensively and that specific order of those 3 instructions gets executed many times and each time it does it heats CPU more than last time. Get the drift? Games use instruction set provided by a CPU to do what they do and change in any one instruction can potentially screw up some logic in game code, making it use more CPU than it normally would leading to overheating over some time."

I dont see what that had to do with this lol. Besides that is not a sony employee so he could just be talking out of his ass.

I'm a little nervous about starting the game since I have a PS3 60GB fat and I don't really want anything to happen to it, but I am a little relieved that it seems to be a problem with LA Noire and not the firmware update. I haven't had any issues so far with other games post update.

I was gonna buy the game day-1 but BEFORE i learnt about all this "overheatin" mumbo jumbo i decided i was gonna buy it next week instead, owe too much money to my pot dealer so payin him is of more value to me (i can get a load more then)

So by the sounds of it, it wasnt a bad idea, expect sum sort of a patch within the next week

HeavenlySnipes2647d ago

asking for to many spots ey? Stop smoking though...


news4geeks2647d ago

It's better for you than drinking. Probably even healthy in moderation. Although I get the feeling Hellsvacancy ain't smoking in moderation lol.

bozebo2646d ago

"It's better for you than drinking."
This is incredibly true.

Though, he owes money for it? lol fail.

But anyway...

frelyler2646d ago

Very stupid thing to write man. If you ever get busted and your pc is searched you basically admitted to buying and possessing an illegal substance. You can try and say you were kidding all you want, but if it is found on you or on your property then you are sunk. Do what you want but don't be a moron about it, seriously?

bangoskank2646d ago

Not that I condone Hellvacancy's habits or anything but I seriously doubt he's going to get in trouble for buying some weed. You make it sound like he's Tony Montana when he probably just buys a gram here and there.

frelyler2645d ago


I actually did not at all, I never mentioned amounts or anything. Working in the criminal defense field I see stupid shit like this all the time. He mentions how HE is going to buy "loads" more. That right there is admission of guilt and by definition that is a lot. He mentions he gets it from his "dealer" implying he knows someone who sells larger than personal use amounts. If he doesn't turn CI then he'll be made an example of. Just trying to give some advice, please don't take my fact based comments and say I said something I did not, what are you a cop or something?

Spinal2647d ago


Take out all your anger on me. I shall bare the hatred of the world for the sake of mankind.
