This happened to me as well. The first time, my PS3 seemed to hang during the second update. The next time, I quit the update because I thought the system was stuck in an infinite loop. Turns out that it isn't.

Start from the beginning by deleting the game data file from the PS3 hard drive. Boot up HSG:OOB and wait for it to install. This takes a while, as I think it is something like a 5GB install. When it is finished, go into the game and select the Online option.

You'll see the "Checking version" message followed by a couple of status bars. Depending upon your connection, the update can take anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour. Just walk away and come back to it. When it is finished, you'll be told to press the PS button to quit and then restart the game.

Once back on the main screen, you should see a version # that wasn't there before, on the right side of the screen. You might want to write this number down.

Go back into the Online option. Once again, you'll see a "Checking version" message followed by a couple of status bars. It looks the same as the last update, so you might think this is an error. It isn't. Apparently, rather than updating once to the latest version, the game is going through a series of updates (2 or 3 of them). It's like taking Windows 95, updating it to Windows 98, then updating it to Windows ME, and finally updating it to Windows XP.

Wait for the update process another time or two. For me, each subsequent update took less time. Something like 20-30 minutes for the last one. When you are asked to quit and restart the game, check the version on the main screen. It should be different than what you wrote down after the first update. For me, my updates ended with ver. 090311201. Finally, I was able to select online and it didn't check the version but asked for my login info.

Whenever they update the game, I'm sure we'll have to download the update once again...but hopefully each new update will be minor. But those people who purchase the game brand new will end up going through even more updates with each passing year.

How can i get the online patch to use my characters now that online is no longer available


The patch should download automatically when your system is connected to the internet. It won't bring back your characters, but will fix any issues that they had to patch.

Hello

The Sony Playstation 3 suffers from software bugs like any other device. These bugs can cause the PS3 to freeze during game play, which takes away from the overall experience of using the PS3 hardware. In order to combat these bugs, Sony software team frequently sends out PS3 software updates that will defuse any major bugs as they arise.

Go to the official Sony Playstation 3 update website and download the latest PS3 software update. Each update that Sony releases fixes bugs and adds new features.

Connect a USB flash drive or memory card to your computer and create a folder inside of the USB drive or memory card named "PS3." Create a folder inside of that named "Update."


Save the downloaded PS3 update file inside of the "Update" folder on the USB flash drive or the memory card.


Pull the USB flash drive or the memory card out of the computer and connect it to your PS3. Select the "System Update" option from the PS3 main menu.


Select "Update via Storage Media" from the next screen and press the "X" button to install the latest PS3 update on your machine. This will fix any software bugs that are preventing your PS3 from working properly.

I insert the disc uncharted 2 among thieves,after loading my ps3 turn off by itself.what should i do?please help ,i cant play uncharted 2 among thieves.i already replace with another but still my ps3 turn...


Seeing how that game just came out, there is probly a few bugs. did you go to system update and make sure you have the newest ps3 firmware? If your other games work fine then im sure your not the only person this is happening to. They will release a patch and when you go to boot up the game it will download and install. Hope they patch it soon for you! ive been waiting months for this game to come out, but i dont have the money to get it right now, Hope They fix it soon!

Cant play turismo 5 only on line


All of the new games try to connect to the internet as soon as the game loads. It's like all the silly errors you get when you turn your computer on without the internet. My ps3 automatically connects me to the internet as soon as I turn it on. You shouldn't be limited to playing online like warhawks. I think it's just an annoyance.
