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.

Try deleting any previous game updates and try again. If it still won't update, make a different profile on your PS3 and try downloading/installing it with that one.

Cant get the game to start

First: Go to System settings. Scroll down to restore to factory default settings. Click on Yes and re-set them. Power down your PS3. Unplug the power cord from it for 2 minutes. While it is unplugged, unplug your wireless router for 30 seconds. Plug it back in. Now plug your PS3 back up and turn the power on. If this doesn't fix the isue then do the following: On your XMB dashboard, there will be two files. One is for game updates, the other is for game progress. Delete all of these for Guitar Hero. Turn the PS3 off. Turn it back on and re-install the update for the game. Any downloadable content that you paid for thru the Playstation can be re-downloaded for free! Yes, you will have to start your progress from square zero, but you will be able to play your game! If not then you ave other issues. If it is a Guitar Hero issue go to and start a RMA warranty request. If it is a PS3 issue, go to and click support. Then click on service and see if your unit is still under warranty. (One year from purchase date-receipt required) Warranty claims for the PS3 generally take about 14 days! Fastest warranty service I have ever seen! Good Luck and Happy Gaming! If this fixed your problem, please rate how helpful it was!
