PS3 freezing constantly after 4.0 update.

25 replies 2123 views Edited Dec 1, 2011

I updated to 4.0 tonight, and my machine is freezing A LOT!  I am playing MW3.  Just sitting in my party working on classes, and bang, total freeze.  So I have to hold the power button and go through the whole checking/restoring file system process everytime.  This never happened before tonight.

So i am having similar issues. My ps3 now freezes on everything. It won't lock up but it will freeze for seconds at a time on almost everything. And i had just restored it to stock the same day and it was working excellently. Almost everything takes a long time to open. Netflix about 45 seconds used to be about 10. Psn  store is up to 30 from 2. I want to downgrade.

Like you guys, on Nov 29-first day of firmware update-system told me an update was available-4.0.  I DL'd the firmware update via the Internet and everything seemed to work okay.  Last night I attempted to play Bond Quantum which I am DEEEEEP into now, and after the first 15-30 seconds of gameplay I get a complete screen freeze, and hear ticking in the background.  Really iritates me-first time I have ever experienced this before, and it is directly associated with the firmware update.  I have to manually eject the disc and after that the system completely reboots itself automatically-what to heck???  Sony needs to fix this ASAP as I do not want to reformat.  Does anyone know how to do a downgrade back off 4.0?  Best to all-John

Sony better take responsibility, or even give new warrenty for the 20gb or 60gb models. They can Overheat in like 7 hours of straighing KH2 (Kingdom Hearts 2).
