Believe Sony have pulled the update from the network until further notice.

First i heard about this issue was when i googled PSN, i was trying to log onto PSN last night to sync some trophies it took 15 minutes of constant logging in attempts before i got into it. Luckily the FW update had been pulled before i tried logging into PSN.

Last night this happened
3 or more sign in attempts, most of which gave me an error code or said check my network settings one of the error codes was 8002A458, i can't remember what the other code was
2 forced sign out's by PSN
2 failed attempts to sync trophies
The welcome page on PSN was blank several times when i got into PSN

I miss the old PSN when signing in was quick and there wasn't an error code or slow loading nearly every time i wanted to log into PSN, Sony take note improve PSN with faster log in's and zero error codes popping up every time i try to log in.

They better iron out these bugs for the PS4 version of PSN.

Sony should ask their fans what they would like to see included in a firmware update, some friends of mine would like the option to delete trophies for games that they bought and didn't like, i agree with them i would like to delete the trophies for dead rising 2, i got tired of constantly fetching the anti-zombie medication for the character's daughter i quit the game and never played it again.

Would it kill Sony to test the FW updates before releasing them instead of rushing to plug the leak in the dam after it has broken?

I believe that there is only one GTA IV. Do you mean which DLC?

Complete edition on disk (if there is one) or DD with DLCs

I got complete edition on disc, so does this mean you have both consoles now Joseph ?

If so feel free to add my PSNid = NittyDon smile.gif

No mate. I traded in my 360 for the PS3. MS has put the world of video games on a massive downer recently, and I find their xbox strategy appalling. I had to get out.

I hope all the gang make the switch next gen. I'll add you.

No Probs mate i'll look out for the add, to be honest I got the PS3 in 2011 kept the Xbox but haven't used it since I should of sold/traded like you happy.gif !

Cant sign in either error code (8002A548) I know a few others with the same problem, it was fine an hour ago. I wish it would just say PSN down for maintaince or whatever instead of error codes.

Well you're kind of missing the point here. It would be so much more helpful if you actually had a link to the price, or just the TV add itself.

Got my new PS3 today. I'd post a picture of my GAME trade in but I haven't got my phone on me. Anyway trade in for a 360 250GB HDD, like 13 games and a Wii Console with 4 games came to around £170. I got the PS3 500GB and 3 games, I paid £40 in total. I got the Last Of Us (I've not played it yet due to work/feeling crap) and Fifa 12 and then Gran Turismo Academy sh*t. It took forever to install updates for GT - got to play like 10 minutes before leaving for work. I don't really understand the modes in that game yet - or how to get more money to buy cars and sh*t. Either way, I'm super glad I switched over consoles. Off to pre order GTA V with my discount from GAME too.

Oh if any of you guys feel like adding me - SteamZ_90

Yeah you don't wantt to play TLOU while feeling crap or tired. You really need to be fresh and awake to be able to enjoy it.

When a game or movie disk is on PAUSE can the lazer burn a hole in the disk? Or does the lazer lift up.
I've always wondered about this when I put a disk on PAUSE.

I'm pretty sure the disc continues to spin even when you pause.


Edit: Ok, I wanted to find out myself & this link should answer your query. I doubt there is a huge difference between how a DVD & Blu-Ray works. So, the laser is only on while the disc is spinning.

Question for you guys. Since I got a PS3 I've had to put in my card details even though I got my free 30 day PS+ anyway, I bought a DLC pack for GT5 which is all good but it popped up with some kind of wallet amount of money of £5 instead of just taking it from my card. What the hell is this wallet thing? Also, is there any place I can see if my PS+ is going to take money from my account when the free part runs out?

Once you've put your card details in, it automatically renews until either you disable automatic renewal or your card expires. I'm not familiar with the wallet system yet, but this might help you:

QUOTE
Yes, it does. For your convenience, PlayStation Plus automatically renews, but you may terminate this subscription renewal at any time.

Note: When you join PlayStation Plus using a Master Account, Automatic Funding for that Master Account will automatically be set to [On].  Automatic Funding is not available for Sub Accounts.  If, on the renewal date Automatic Funding is set to [On], your payment method is registered with us and your wallet does not have enough funds to cover the subscription charge, your wallet will be funded automatically from your registered payment method with the greater of the minimum top-up amount or the renewal cost.  Funds added to the wallet are non-refundable.  You can switch Automatic Funding to [Off] at any time after purchase via Sony Entertainment Network account Management.

If the credit card is not registered, the wallet does not have enough funds or [Automatic Funding] has been turned off, your PlayStation Plus membership may not be able to be renewed.

If you have PS+ Uncharted 3 is free at the moment, I think Infamous 2 was not long ago I know 1 was for sure. Def worth having + for the ton of free games you get.

Yup it is free however you can ever forget me downloading 30GB worth of stuff on my Internet connection haha. Put it this way my speed is 1.5mb at the best of times. It takes me 4 hours just to download 4-6GB of anything. I do have ps+ for free right now so ill keep an eye out for other games.

I feel your pain, I also have not a great internet speed so downloads can take ages! Games like Uncharted 3, Mass Effect 3 and even Battlefield 3 (all games with 3!) are so big you may aswell just buy the disc version for cheap.

Just downloading the update now and I'm going to switch off trophy notifications. It was something I tried to do when I got the PS3 the other week, but it meant switching off all other notifications too.

It's quite a relief to come from the 360 to the PS3, because I'd grown tired of the whole gaming for achievements thing. I can now just enjoy the games for what they are.

Patch worked for me, but I don't really see a point for it (not just this patch but the one that bricked the consoles last week) because not many people care about turning off the trophy notifications. (Not saying everyone)
