Reports of PS3 Firmware Update 3.0 Freezing Games Surface

Sponsored Links
277w 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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!

ive had my slim for a few days now, and played skate 2 for hours with no freezes....i also left it on all night downloading some demos....never a hiccup in the process.

i did notice, however, that when the multi audio out is enabled, the load screen audio for the ufc demo's stutters....

I haven't played any games on the new update but I did have the problem of the internet browser freezing and having to do a hard reset several times but this same problem would happen on the old fw must be hardware issue for me
