Uncharted 3 Early Access Crashing my PS3 60GB

22 replies 396 views Edited Oct 12, 2011

Ive been having problems with my PS3 60gb, the game  seems to crash my ps3 (it turns off suddenly) from time to time. Yesterday happened 2 times.

 

I was thinking my ps3 got a hardware issue but it only happens in U3.

 

Could someone tell me if im alone in this? If im not alone ND please take note of this issue i have already pre-ordered the game. I don't want to be left in the cold with this issue.

 

Thanks for any help.

Emmm, why every other game this year doesnt make my console crash? You mean to tell me that this is the only game pushing the old hardware? If im posting this is cos Deus Ex, La Noire, Dead Space 2, Mortal Kombat, Mass Effect 2, Portal 2 are not making my ps3 crash.

UC3 pushes the PS3 hardware more than any other game:

It's a fact. Old PS3 models tend to overheat and sooner or later you'll have to deal with YLOD.

So, you're saying, developers are now making games designed for SOME PS3 models?. They're making games while thinking "Well, 40gb and 60gb don't exist anymore cuz they probably all YLOD'd by now". So basically we have to buy a new Ps3 to be able to play Uncharted 3.

 

I think ND would disagree with you

Don't put words into my mouth. It's not ND's fault, you can't even blame Sony.

 

It's a complicated issue and it has to do with lead-free soldering (old chips overheat and the lead-free soldering doesn't help).

It's an issue which is plaguing the entire electronics industry... nVidia had failing Geforce 8xxx mobile GPUs a few years ago.

Dude youre still not reading my post, its not happening anywhere else, in other words just in uncharted 3, like in just one game... YLOD do not target just one game it targets the ps3 in general, i couldnt play any game for more than 2 or 3 hours cos it would simply crash at some point.

 

That why im posting here cos i know what YLOD is, and thats not YLOD.

I am reading your post, you said that it turns off your console randomly, right?

 

I have a Slim console and I never had this issue.

 

Have you downloaded the latest 1.01 patch (44MB)?
