Setting up my son's new PS3 - now into my second hour with this stupid box. Won't play games, needs a load of updates, stick in game - finally sees it - downloading about a 500 meg update so it will play.
My god, no wonder people are hacking away at Sony - I'll stick to my Xbox thanks.
Lmao. To be fair to Sony (I'm an Xbox man myself) if you have a really new game and the Xbox hasn't updated in ages, the game may need a large update. Happened with me when I got black ops. Had a 90mb update, before that I didn't update since MW2. since black ops I have had an update to put on for medal of honor, otherwise nothing.
I don't mind the updates - 50mbps connection at home, make a cuppa or have something snacky and its all ready
Well after about 30 mins Little Big Planet is now playing and I can leave him in peace...... At least now I can actually use my own Xbox !!
As for Little Big Planet - WHAT THE HELL IS ALL THAT ABOUT ??? Looks kinda trippy.
yup first turn on of a ps3 takes ages with updates then i had to update gt5 its just a pain at least with the 360 games will work without the update just not on live. Wait till you download games downloaded little big planet downloads needs manually installing then needs an update. its just not a very slick system
OMG I hate windows. I just installed it and I had to do a TON of updates.. Service Pack? What the hell is that. Took 3 REBOOTS!!
Come on mattx. New features require new updates. Sony release 3D capablity as one of the updates for GT5 iirc. Does x360 do 3d?
But you can normally play PS3 games without updating them, just say No when asks if you want to install new updates and it'll load the game at its current version (just not let you sign into PSN for that game).
What's a PS3?
Well thirty mins gaming is all it managed before it packed up and only started playing dvds. Would not see any of the game discs. Took it back to Sainsbury's and got a refund. Now got one from argos. Not set it up yet, I just hope it lasts longer. Sony really have hit rock bottom in my opinion.
Right PS3 number 2 - plugged it in and it seems to work [ it actually sees game discs !! ] Now updating it.........
