269w ago - Just over two weeks ago there were reports of WipEout HD crashing/freezing and some partially-working DIY-style fixes.
The good news is, WipEout HD has now been patched in order to fix the common game freezing problem among PSN users with over 50 friends.
Currently this patch is available for the European version only, though it is expected to go live in America very soon. The patch notes, which can be retrieved from within the game, state that your save file needs to be deleted after the patch has been installed for the fix to take affect.
This means your lap times, team loyalties and other single-player stats and options will be lost. Your trophies and leaderboard scores, however, won't be lost.
If you've been sidestepping the issue by playing whilst signed out of the PSN, starting again is no doubt quite an annoyance. Don't get too upset, though, at least you can now play online with your friends.
271w ago - Several have reported on the official UK PlayStation forum (linked above) that they are experiencing random crashes and freezing issues with the recently released WipEout HD.
Based on user feedback thus far, the bug appears to be affecting only those with too many people (50+) on their PSN friends list. SCEE Community Team Leader MusterBuster stated that Sony is looking into the issue, however, some are reporting possible "fixes" until an official update or patch is made available.
To quote lowrider007: Well, for me anyway, I can now play signed into PSN and no freezes, I updated my firmware to 2.43 and it seems to be fine now, I've had it on for about 3 hours now and it's the first time it hasn't locked up at all, strange that should fix my issue, perhaps their was a glitch in my last FW update for something.
To quote D-E-V-I-L-08: Listen carfully...
1. Sort out your buddy list - At 1st I had 61 friends.. and moved down to 38 friends.
2. Then delete both Wipeout game PLUS the system key (found in system data) and delete gamesave too.

4. Download the game
5. After completion, Install the game.. then.. turn PlayStation 3 off... and on

278w ago - If you're one of the people experiencing the freezing problem in Ninja Gaiden II since the last title update was released, we have the temporary fix for you! According to a majority of the people having this problem, you can play Ninja Gaiden II without any problems by deleting your hard drive's cache and playing the game offline. It might take some time for Tecmo and Microsoft to come up with a patch, so this solution might help you.
By deleting your game cache in your hard drive, all of your game updates will be erased, forcing you to download them again the next time you sign into XBOX Live. Here's how to delete your game cache:
Please be reminded that once you do this, you won't be able to play the Mission Modes while you're offline with your game cache being cleared!
- Go to the system blade and Select MEMORY
- Press Y and then press X, X, LB, RB, X, X. A confirmation message will appear asking you if you want to perform a maintenance on your hard drive. Choose Yes, and there ya go!
292w ago - A Rockstar customer service representative has issued the following statement regarding the freezing issues PS3 owners of GTA IV have experienced:
"A patch is being worked on around the clock to address the issues. It's bound to be. That's how they address this sort of thing. It is being worked on. We're looking into it. You will hear from us if a patch is released. A patch is usually the way it's been done."
The rep also said that they have not been told what is causing the game to freeze and that they are "devoid of information at the moment".
To quote: We were also given some tips on how to combat the freezing experienced on the PS3 version of the game, including:
Completely remove the game from the system but leave saves behind.
Turn the console off for 15 minutes without any cables plugged in, then turn it on and try again.
Play without access to the Internet.
Turn off the auto save function and the controller vibration setting.
292w ago - A thread on the US PlayStation boards (linked above) about GTA IV freezing issues has now reached over 1,600 comments from angry gamers requesting a patch ASAP.
The forum members have been angered further as videos of the game freezing uploaded to YouTube have been removed due to a "copyright claim by Take 2 Games."
Many now believe Rockstar are now trying to cover up the issue. We did however manage to find one video of the game freezing from cooleyre as you can see below... how long it lasts is undetermined though. :P
