EuroGamer: Neither the PlayStation 3's 3.61 firmware update nor L.A. Noire itself are to blame for system crashes reported while playing Rockstar's new crime epic, according to a joint statement from the developer and Sony.
GOD. God is to blame, damn him!
The couch warriors on the internet.
roam the internet from their couch? That's news to me....
^They could be on a laptop?
@creamsoda: Laptops are news to him.
ROFL! I'm on the couch now. Blame Canada. "Goddam Mongorians!" LOL!
ever hear of a wireless keyboard/mouse and DVI cord?
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
Yea, I wanted to see what would happen...I have all these codes and no way to redeem them
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." http://www.gamespot.com/new...
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 haven't had any issues so far, but i gotta say this game is awesome.
Learn from my mistake ! I got banned once for making a religous joke!
I can see why, some people have no sense of humor
Finished it yesterday on xbox in 20hours and 0 crashes or other things wrong... Must have been lucky or something :)
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.
Eurogamer is to blame.
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
Cool story, bro.
asking for to many spots ey? Stop smoking though... Really...
It's better for you than drinking. Probably even healthy in moderation. Although I get the feeling Hellsvacancy ain't smoking in moderation lol.
"It's better for you than drinking." This is incredibly true. Though, he owes money for it? lol fail. But anyway...
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?
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.
@bangoskank 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?
Me. Take out all your anger on me. I shall bare the hatred of the world for the sake of mankind. =)
I love their joint "statement". "We've gotten together today and discussed this issue very thoroughly. In the end, we came to the conclusion that neither of us are to blame. Good luck with the problems you're having with our products."
Lol bubble for reading the article.
LOL. That is what I was gonna say! We both discussed it over, and it wasn't either of our fault. It was yours for buying and using our products!!!
I don't care who is to blame I just want the $60 game I bought to f**king play.
If its not the PS3's fault or the game's fault, then that means it must be Bin Laden's fault? Seeing as its not an inside job...
Nothing is ever Chuck Norris' fault, unless you count the boot print on your face and the 250 dead ninjas. On topic: I blame geohot... I didn't say it's his fault, just that I'm blaming him.
Neither is getting his ass beat by Bruce Lee. That was just Chuck Norris showing how to gracefully get slapped around.
Am I the only one who hasn't had any issues at all? Not a single glitch or anything. I just got to the homicide desk and am having a blast. I'm playing on my new"ish" slim model.
I didn't even know it was an issue until I heard about it online. I haven't had a single problem in over 10 hours that I've been playing.
I have the 360 version and I'm on my second play throught and have had not problems. This has to be a ps3 issue and the artcle states that as well.i
crashes???? where im 28 hours in and dome no probles o wait i got the 360 version. im glad
360 crashes too, moron.
sorry not on my 360.. and on any news sites they say only on ps3 so dont think so droid
http://www.google.com/searc... Enjoy your pwnsauce.
Only the old versions of the Xbox and ps3 crash, If you have a newer version of either, you should be ok. And TEAM BONDI is to blame since they MADE THE GAME...
I have the PS3 version. Haven't had a single freeze. Didn't even know it was an issue until I saw all these reports online. I also am glad. But I wouldn't be surprised if you're just glad that PS3 owners are having issues. And Rockstar themselves said 360 version is freezing too. Get over it. You don't get anything out of acting younger than you are.
HA you got "Dicked" yum yum!!!!
the guy that said "ship it now, patch it later"
i know who did it. http://files.sharenator.com...
Microsoft is the blame
every title coming out from RockStar is the same ... so who do you think ?
I blame Lambert... for being a good friend to me all those years!
I think micro , sony and rockstar. These campnies didn't say anything just blaming. + We can't blame xbox 360 and ps3 that just redicilous.
GTA & RDR had the same problem
Old PS3s are to blame. Don't like it? Well then, best you call Sony and get the PS3's with the updated gpu--which is simple. Just call them, pay $100 and send in your console, wait a week and BAM! you'll get a brand new 320GB Slim. Much better than that shitty ol' 60GB. It's not much different, it just tends to stop all the overheating issues of the fat when playing games that demand features of said gpu.
yea i did that last month,the deal required the hdd , had to send the harddrive and lost all mi games saves including gt5....very very mad F them
I haven't had any problems with LA Noire, but I am only about 2 hours in. I am playing it on an original 60GB PS3 phat system. I have yet to crash or freeze. I had freezing issues with GTA4, but I am good so far with LA Noire. But just in case, I have a PS3 Slim in my living room, and with cloud storage working, I have already transferred my LA Noire saves.
This looks like a real "WHODUNIT"... XD
I blame the monkey in the closet
What crashes are they talking about? I already beat L.A. Noire on the ps3 and I am now redoing cases and it has not crashed once. One day I even played for 7 hours straight and there was not a single crash. The one time it did crash on me was when I tried to access the playstation store through the main menu of the game. But that was expected to happen since the store is still under maintenance and there was bound to be some conflict. I was just curious what would happen if I clicked on store. That is the only way to make the game crash from what I have experienced.
The gaming SHEEPLE have only their selves to blame, for buying into the "Industry" idea that its ok to release games that are incomplete. buggy, glitchy. So now you want to complain, when you've been reinforcing the idea that its ok, by purchasing the game. Your own lack of self control and common sense, has led to this, SHEEPLE. so continue to pull out your hair, emotionally tormented by your own choices.
This always happens with cutting edge popular new games. Just look at the launch of GTAIV and GeoW2 for example. Some people had trouble running these games. It's probably a series of different circumstances that will affect some consoles. You have a console that seemingly works well before the launch of a new game, but really is on the fritz. You get a new game and play it for several hours and the console crashes or freezes. People blame the game, but it's really just your aging console acting up...
