I had hoped when the newest update came out, it would of resolved my problem. Nope, not one bit.
Games still freeze, i have graphic glitches with stuff flashing, almost looks like i am playing the game mid development sometimes. I have swapped out 2 ps3s with my warranty at gamestop due to this. 3 different machines, 3 exact same problems. This is not a system thing, this is the update from ps3. All 3 systems where the fat 80 gb ps3 fully backwards compatible. and all these **bleep** updates should not be a mandatory thing. There was more to this update than you publicly stated Sony. Stop all the nonsense, admit it was an error on your part, and fix it. up till 4.25 update everything was great.... now, its junk... my ps3 is more of a paperweight than a game system.
exact same thing to mine killed it after reset after update I have the 320 gb they assured me wasnt updates fault and charged me 100 to fix I am thinking they are wrong mine is model number cech-2501b serial number CG914396732 I have a second system that requires update to play black ops two if it does the same I am goin to be pretty mad
Model# cech2501b serial #CG914396732 did update and it fried my system TV would not recognize ps3 and controllers either I called and was assured it was not update now reading these posts am dang sure it was and got charged 100 dollars for you guys to repair it really?? Not happy
So my PS3 reooted and I ever make it to the home screen. I just get the wavy bit and star field.
Had a 120 GB drive, but upgraded it to a 1TB drive a while ago. This is the first issue I've had since the swap.
Was running whatever the latest required version to connect to PSN was.
