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!

This doesn't surprise me. I think it should be expected that newer updates should have bugs that cause these errors, but the new features it has makes it so tempting to update. I just hope there will be a solution available soon.
unfortunately no ... at this time the only possible method of downgrade is by Infectus (its a modchip) but even that is still in developement ... maybe you can try to hard reset console couple of times, give it a rest, unplug and plug in back the hard drive. Maybe that helps... You can also write directly to sony support. They actually reply within couple of hours (24 hours is the max time to get the respone from them). Good luck.
well i dont have any good news for you ... mine blu ray stopped reading discs at some time (about couple of months after purchase) and there is no real method to fix it by yourself (in my case none of clening discs or other stuff worked ). I had to send it back to my shop and they send it to Belgium i suppose which is the nearest country (for me - im from poland) which has official ps3 feedback for hardware issues.
So it took about a month and they send back to me a whole new ps3. But beware - if u send them a 60gig (or other version) with support for playing ps2 games its most likely that they dont send u back the same model. As for some time they actually send back newer models (maybe with some free bundle or games) - i get the same model but it was almost 2 years ago ... so if u own such a model i think better sollution to keep it (and fix it) could be purchase of a laser itself (dealextreme.com have them for example) and get a proper person to install it for you.
Feel free to ask if you have any other questions but i think thats all .... cheers mate and good luck!
