7 Replies 913 Views Created 13-11-2008

Lats week , i was playing LBP for the first time and my screen frozed , the ps3 stopped reading disks , now i read that other people had the same problem to with LBP ?

Hi,

some games can, true enough, break the PS3 when the game get frozen. Just be careful ;).

 

When a game get frozen, the PS3 doesn't save the position of the reading lens after the reboot : so it can't read discs anymore.

Wouldn't that be due to a flaw of the bluray drive?

I wonder though what can cause the game to hang. Still, according to what you say
the game would still cause the ps3 not to be able to read disks, albeit indirect

its funny you mention about playing LBP because i was playing it last night and the screen froze. i restart it thinking it was ok and nothin was happening. my ps3 was offically dead. i got on the blower to sony and they are sending out a replacement. is it worth paying £4.99 a month to cover your PS3 if it breaks? i'll be honest i do play on it a bit too much.

Well any game could break the PS3. Not just anyone.

 

Best thing to do is that Continuous Play thing which I am going to sign up to soon. The website I think accoring to the little pamflet I found in my Little Big Planet box is:

A simple bug in a wrong moment (When the BD Drive accesses to the BD) can create a freeze and then, break your PS3 system ;).

You can get as an example GTA IV which freezed and broke a lot of PS3 60 Go. But that problem had been fixed on an update quickly :).

Doing some reading up on the US ps forums revealed that mostly the 60GB version were sensitive to this bug.

Perhaps the older versions have an improved version of the Bluray Drive that isn't susceptible to this flaw.

 

Anyway, glad to hear the bug has been fixed, now I don't have to be afraid of getting GTA IV :)

Absolutely :gr8:. Sincerely, I had no problems with the game before or after the update on my 60 Go PS3.

 

However, it's good to hear that R* had quickly fixed the problem.
