223w ago - It appears Namco Bandai is an equal opportunity PlayStation Home supporter, as starting tomorrow they are offering free female Gundam clothing... but for a limited time only.
What's the catch? It will only be available from September 3 through September 6, 2009 and to obtain it users simply have to watch the latest Gundam Senki trailer in the Home theater.
To quote: "Namco Bandai continued with its PlayStation Home festival of Gundam today with the availability of additional free avatar costumes.
Today's clothing offering is for a female version of the Federation soldier clothing. This will be available from September 3 through September 6. To obtain it, all you'll have to do is watch the latest Gundam Senki trailer in the Home theater.
As a reminder, the giant Gundam is going to be parting ways with Home on the 10th, so be sure and check it out before then!"
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!
