ok i bought call of duty modern warfare 2 on tuesday  it asked me to update to 3.01 all went succesfull played on codmw2 for about 20 mins shut down the ps3 then later i power it up and it freezes at ps3 intro screen had to hard reset holding power button just kept crashing at same place kept having to shut it down then it finally got past the intro screen but didnt bring any xmb icons up so had to shut down again and again finally got the xmb to show proper so thought ide try to restore settings and format hdd then it restarted and just did same again  its somtimes lets me get to xmb and start a game but after a couple of minutes or even less just freezes and i have to shut down by holding power button   was working perfectly fine before i did the 3.01 update and it seems theres been alot had same thing happened to them too i hope it hasnt broke my ps3 and that its just a matter of a new update from sony  fingers crossed

... Yeah mine just broke with Blu-Ray drive failure...  I also suspect update v3.01. 

Lets hope there's a fix for this.  (MW2 just sits and waits!)

I turned mine on yesterday, (before i bought MW2) updated it to latest update version and it wont get passed a certain bit, times out and then freezes!

 

Come on Sony - pull your finger out! All my other games work ok, its just this one
