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!

that's true actually, though never playing fifa 09, i been playing GTA IV and kz2 lately and both games seem to load significantly faster than before 3.0. i have not seen a huge performance increase, but it seems in GTA that there are less stutters that i have been getting occasionally while playing.
I didn't notice any freezes on my 80 Gb PAL console, I played Killzone 2, GTA IV, Bioshock without any problems. GTA IV maybe ran smoother than before... if I notice anything I will post the game and section where the freezing occured for me.
