I have a theory. If you installed Uncharted after updating to FW 3.00, you would not have had any issues with it freezing.
A friend of mine bought the game and installed before updating. His machine freezed after a minute or so. He gave me the game to try. I installed and finished the game without any freezes. (I will be returning the game after he begs long enough after updating to 3.01)
Halfway through the game, I told him that I am at Chapter 11 and he was astounded. I told him to uninstall, delete all the savegames and then re-install. He refused and said he will wait for FW 3.01
What do you think? Was I just lucky not to be affected or is there any merit in my statement and methodoligy?
