all sony and a few others is that is Our fault,i.e, fat ps3, overplayed, dumb,etc..) sony won't admit to fault. I went out and got a new system & skeptical about updating the 4.31 again, I can't afford another system right now, and i can't play black ops 2 until i update. How craappy is that?
You know... I hate to be a "negative Suzzy" here Sony wont be doing anything for us!!! I have had my PS3 for just over a year now and after the 4.30 update my PS3 went to crap. My PS3 wasn't used like most of you gamers do, and that being said I should have not had any problems! I contacted Playstation and told them about the update problem and their response was "It is impossible for a software update to cause the PS3 from functioning"... I am a computer specialist with plenty of degrees and certifications to back me up, first of all, we all know that the PS3 is built with computer components (a PS3 is nothing but a gaming computer dedicated to video games with networking and wireless... sound familiar to any one). As a computer specialist I have seen and repaired computers that had problems CAUSED by software updates, what's more difficult to repair on a computer is the BIOS; if it is updated with corrupted software your system wont work anymore or you will have some serious problems which need to be corrected quickly or can/will destroy the mainboard. Sounds like the same problem we all face here... Doesn't it? Any who... Playstation also told me to send in my PS3 (for several weeks) for a fee of almost $300 to troubleshoot and repair. I purchased my PS3 (brand new) with a 160 gig hdd for $150, why in the HELL would I want to spend double for the repairs!?! I hate to say this but this is just another way to screw the consumer! They say the problems is not the update, you did something wrong and if your out of warranty they say the hard ware is faulty and you have to pay! If they would just own up to THEIR mistake, maybe, just maybe, people wouldn't be switching to Xbox 360 or the WII. I my self told playstation I'm done throwing my money away on them, I should have learned with the problems I had with the PS2 and PS1 but thought I should give them another chance. What an idiot I was!!! I think I'm done here... I really wish you guys all the best of luck and hope that they do own up and get you guys squared away, as for me... My PS3 is completely dead after following their directions to reinstall and reformat in attempts to get it running again. If you've read this far then Thanks for reading my rant... As for playstation, Thanks for the waist of time and screwing me for all the money I spent on the PS3, accessories and games and for telling me to go to hell when I needed a fix and said I wasn't paying double to get my system repaired... Thank you very much! Good luck everyone
Sorry, I forgot to mention that the 4.31 update just made my system worse. Its dead now, funeral coming soon.
Mine played normal until 4.31 came along and now EVERY game freezes. I've tried all the safe mode restores, was told it was my lens, HDD, HDMI and TV -.-. The thing that really irritates me is I traded my perfectly playing 360 for this thing cause all my friends own PS3s.. I'll be going back to Microsoft for the next gen.
So a little more than a year ago ( around the 2011 christmas ) I bought a Ps3 Wireless Stereo Headset. Just a few days ago it stopped working for some reason. The headset itself is fully charged and when I turn it on it blinks once, then twice and continues to blink two times. For some reason, whether the headset is turned on or not, the adapter doesn't light up AT ALL. No matter what I plug it into(Pc or Ps3) I tried resetting them but neither of them started blinking when I would try and push in the reset buttons. I really like the headset and would love to use it. I dont really want to buy another one, I'm in a financial bind at the moment. I think it may have somthing to do with the recent ps3 updates.
