227w ago - Well that didn't take long.. this afternoon fourzerotwo (aka Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling) tweeted the following:
Playlist update inbound for COD4. This will fix the exploits in public matches until the patch finishes certification at Microsoft & Sony!
Apparently this CoD4 Playlist Patch will fix the infamous CoD4 PS3 Hacks as well as the XBox 360 exploits in public games.
To quote: "According to Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling, a Call of Duty 4 patch has been sent to Microsoft and Sony for certification, which should foil any nefarious individuals who want to continue to cheat at the game.
In the meantime, a playlist update will stop them in public matches, so you should have a hacking-free multiplayer experience now."

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.
272w 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...
