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!

Well, last Major update is true, a minor fix here and there is bound to come out. we all know it its sony. I looks like it will be sooner then later. im going to try my games tonight and see. after i beat my blueray remote into submission.
at any rate, complaining to the sites that sold you third party controllers is a ridiculous suggestion. The issue with them would be Sony's not there issue. As a side note, I don't remember reading any where that Sony would guarantee that third party hardware would be supported. not only that, I remember back in the day when if you called Sony for service/repairs, if you advised them that you used third party peripherals or memory units they would inform you this voids your service warranty. At any rate there could be legitimate reasoning for this issue with the third party hardware, it could just be a "oops, sorry" mistake, or maybe the 3.0 was coded on a Monday and the programmers were feeling like dicks that day. who knows.
and at the end of this all i got to say is my G25 Wheel better still work, or you'll hear about me on the news.
I never thought I live to see this kind of error on a PS3 . I mean, all the "symptoms" you have are expected in all kinda programs, OS, and anything else which doesn't presume to be very well designed ... but, guess what, Sony's programmers are just as human as all of us .
The funny thing here, is that they claim that this is the last big update of the year, which I though would be flawless. Anyway, now we just have to wait until the "Last Big Update v2" to come or something else that fixes all these problems once and for all ... unless they were supposed to happen (I say that 'cause of the "3rd Party" controllers; it's just to much of a coincidence )
