Reports of PS3 Firmware Update 3.0 Freezing Games Surface


Sponsored Links
291w ago - Well, it's less than a day after Sony's PS3 Firmware 3.0 update has been released and already there appears to be numerous reports of some PS3 games freezing post-update.

According to Examiner.com (linked above), at least three PS3 titles thus far seem to be adversely affected.

To quote: "One of the biggest games being inflicted by this freezing bug is Uncharted. Numerous forum goers on GameFaqs are complaining about the freezing issue. There have also been a few reports of the UFC and Bioshock getting similar symptoms.

Whether this is just limited to Uncharted isn't known, but it could very well cause some minor problems to other titles, too. Let's hope Sony finds a cure for this minor inconvenience soon."

A few others are reporting that NFS: Undercover now freezes when playing online and COD4 froze when in a lobby.

That being said, if anyone here has experienced any PS3 game freezing issues since updating to PS3 Firmware 3.0 feel free to reply in the comments below!

I have yet to find any of my disk games running into problems and I have a launch 60gig. But a couple of my DLed games, such as Galactrix has a tendancy to freeze now and then and I have to do a hard shutdown, kinda pisses me off.

Sony has start working on this problems when the firmware was release, so don't worry, in no time this problems will just be a thing of the past.

wouldn't you guys say this would be the best firmware to explore for exploits since it has so many bugs already with games?

i just downloaded the new update everything seemed fine very sparkly, fallout 3 kept freezing, and new batman turned off the console and the thing stopped reading games but reads everything else, restored the system on the funny way to get the menu thing.

this fixed it for about 8 hours when playing fallout 3 the game froze turned the ps3 off and now its not working again and no amount of system things are fixing it, i'm so annoyed i cant play any of my games, do i have to wait months for a new update?i cant get rid of this new update grrrrr!

My launch model 60gb locked up twice during online gameplay of the new nazi zombies level on cod: world at war after getting 3.0. It may just be a software crash from the game, but it froze the whole console, no xmb access and I also hadn't experienced such a freeze in the past. Werd.

Well, good luck because this update bug has affected Resistance 2 for me also.

Not entirely sure it's to do with firmware 3.00 but the last few days playing Fallout 3 has been a pain in the ass. Slowdowns and freezes were abundant, sometimes when I thought it had frozen, the game would eventually continue, and sometimes I got sick of waiting and restarted console.

If it is related it's definitely annoying but hopefully it'll be rectified soon enough.
