also having controller issues. After i turn on the ps3 with the controller, it flashes until i have to plug in the controller to the usb and unplug it to get it to boot up as controller #1. No issues playing games, other than freezing upon loading.
120gig slim, updated to 4.25 system starts freezing for 5 - 10 seconds at a time then it'll continue playing until it adventually completely freezes....on all games, and slow loads, even at home page, and it'll jump me back and forth on the screen all wiggin out too..took it to a friends to update it to 4.31 to hopefully fix it..but still doing the same thing..its irritating, i traded my brand new 250gig 360 for this!? -.-
I, too, am having odd issues and believe it's with the latest firmware version 4.31, not sure if it has happened since 4.25 or not.
I have two PS3s, one slim and one super slim.
I just bought a new superslim from the Black Friday sale and noticed this issue with the firmware, that if I have very large downloads processing, or if I have many downloads in my downloads list, like ModNation Racers which is 11GB from the PSN store, after a while, the system will freeze completely.
This happens over wireless and ethernet on both PS3 systems, and it's completely random.
I thought it could have been my internet connection so I took my superslim PS3 to my friend's house and had it lock up twice out of 5 times on large downloads.
That's the only issue that I have into so far with with this latest firmware version.
I will report back if my issues are resolved with the next firmware update
HAS ANYONE AT ALL FOUND A WAY OF GETTING THEIR PS3 TO STAY ONLINE??????? ,IV TRIED EVERYTHING,I DONT WANT TO LOSE MY PS3 BUT IM ONLY PUTTING UP WITH THIS UNTIL CHRISTMAS ,THEN ILL TRY ASSASSINS CREED 3 ON THE PC ,I WILL NOT BUY NEW SOFTWARE ,FOR A SHABBY CONSOLE ,IM GETTING REALLY DESPERATE NOW!!!!!!!
I've noticed particular websites now 'crash' (freeze- requiring a hard shut off for ex.: petco, and many others,
but for some reason it (my PS3) *really* hates petco, also having same probs w/Netflix etc., as everyone else.
I have: 320 gig, Slim profile, 30 mbps down/ 10 up wired cable, Orig. config.
This "patch " broke my internet (plus other stuff, but internet's most noticeable ), but fixed some other small issues.
All in all?? I'd rather the little stuff from b4 this crappy "fix"!! OMG!!! Just crashed while editing this!!
BUT this is a good thing, strangely. The issue that caused this was caused by coflicting signals at the same time. I hit the wrong button & b4 I knew it happened I'd hit another. This is script related, I'd thought so, but now I'm sure. Hope this helps someone fix it...ahem...
Have a great day!!
