223w 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!

my ps3 froze up on NFSU after the 3.o update and now it doesnt read any discs at all, i was playing DMC4 before the update and a few minutes after it and it worked perfect, I take really good care of my ps3 and i dont overuse it, can someone let me know if this is a bluray drive problem or the 3.o screwed it up? i don't want to waste money on ebay if its jus the 3.o fw
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.
I'm glad it's not just me. I'm a new PS3 owner traded in my 360 (5th one) for a slim and was looking forward to playing Uncharted it just freezes about 15 min into session. Hope they fix this soon, I heard this is a great game. Guess resistance 2 will have to do for now.
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.
