Company responds to comments made by Rockstar customer support staff
Media hype + Trolls=Fake @ss Sh*t
agree especially with the return of PSN, should give sony a break
Modern media not being vultures feeding of rotten carcasses? Wouldn't that be nice.
Everytime an update rolls, reports of broken systems flood the web. Maybe these consoles were already malfunctioning or maybe it just coincidence with the firmware. I sold my first 60gb PS3 for a profit and bought a 80gb model. Till this day, I never had a problem with firmware updates whatsoever. Me and my real life friends that own a PS3 (about 15 of them) and not a single one of them suffered from firmware update problems.
I wish the news and media would be like it was many years ago(like the 1940's). The news was so much more formal, accurate and less opinionated then it is now.
There's so many trolls hating on PS3. You can't really hate PS3 for having the best console graphics. Also so many exclusive games from Sonys first party developers. It's ok to be jealous but don't cry about it and hate...
I've played games for about 36 hours since the update came out and havn't had a single crash, and my room gets pretty hot with all this electrical gear on.
I think the people experiencing problems are a select few. Also, their ps3's probably sat for a whille before getting really heavy use, like hours on end of playing. Any piece of hardware put through that would encounter problems. I highly doubt it is a large population, only a select few looking to bash Sony anyway they can because the "other" has only one good exclusive this year and Sony has how many again?
OBJECTION! i dont really have anything to say, just wanted to say that when I read 'no evidence' (playing too much DS atm)
this is just hype, played it for ages on my launch ps3 never had any prob
The general consensus is that this is a pile of bull. Perhaps a better explanation for the sudden crashing of a number of PS3's is if those people who only ever played online left their PS3 get dusty when the PSN was down and never cleaned it. And that's a stretch. It's more than likely a coincidence that some PS3's crashed after the update, there's a story like this after every major update.
Every firmware update is an incendiary device, if the internet is to be believed. The word 'circumstantial' has no meaning online.
How the hell would a firmware update increase heat? *sigh* Stupid media.
in theory dodgy update could creat memory leaks which create a higher cpu usage ehich greatly can increase heat in a console. not saying this firmware did anything just saying it could happen. ps wasn't the problem la noire ?
This has absolutely nothing to do with the firm. It is of my opinion that Rockstar tends to release games that "push" the hardware. I have a slim now, but before that I had a 60 phatty that served me honorably for 4.5 years (and that's with it being turned off only a handful of times, which in my opinion prolong electronics)...that is until I popped in RDR and played it for about 20 hours (not straight). Then one fateful day it started freezing and then would only turn on for about 15-20 sec and shutdown due to overheat. These failures (and there are a small amount) are simply coincidental in the sense a gamer's machine might be older, therefore when the thermal paste starts to flake and you play a game that "pushes" your hardware and therefore has a higher likely hood of killing your system. edit: so what I'm trying to say with all that, is that LA Noire might be the slight culprit here, but not at fault* *please see above
Next headline: "PS3 overheating due to increased solar radiation from the sun reacting with firmware 3.62"
lol no next headline will be "man cooks burgers off ps3"
i've been playing long BO team zombie matches (into the 30s) since psn has been back up with no problems......bogus article.
I haven't had overheating but whenever I play SOCOM it often freezes or boots me out of the game. Never had this problem before the patch. Can't confirm for other games because it's the only one I have at the moment.
it might be the game...i noticed on call of duty games(THAT I OWN) it has host migration problems and connection interruption problems...out of my 70 games 3 do that and they r MW,MW2, and BO...so like i said it just may be the game..would hate if it is
it hasn't happened to me, so it couldn't have happened to anyone else.
obviously, software doesnt affect select consoles, software effects every console exactly the same, its very unlikely that a new firmware causes a few ps3s to overheat
