Many people all over the world have had the same issue and it seems to only be happening with the ps3 version of the game. Playstation has made an official statement in regards to the error in first blaming the game itself and then blaming individual PS3 consoles saying that the "firmware" can't read the game or its updates. They tried making several patches to fix the problem but it still seems like alot of the 20gb PS3 consoles are still experiencing the same problem. Your best bet would be to contact PLASTATION itself and tell them what is going on because from what i have read its something with the console and not the game itself. I hope this helps

Make sure both the game and system software are updated. The game will prompt you to update when you first start the game. To update the PS3 Software, go to the [Settings] menu and select [System Update]. Then give it another go.

PS3 may have been doing an update of some kind and you have interrupted it and damaged the system software.
You might be able to download the system software and install it back back it will most likely wipe everything saved on your ps3.
Not sure how to do this as I have never turned off the power during an update ?
Found this site not sure if it will help
as it does not explain how to install the software onto a ps3

but this you tube video explains how to do it

Also you could have instead interrupted a need for speed update. It needs to update to play in network mode .

I have to say I haven't had lot of joy downloading this particular update directly to PS3 either.

The alternative approach (which worked like a dream for me) is to use your pc to save the update onto a memry stick, then to plug that into one of the PS3's USB ports and do the update from there.

There's a detailed explanation of how to do it towards the bottom of
