Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 has trouble loading games when ethernet is connected

My playstation 3 which I only just got works fine and plays all the games I own. However, when I connect an ethernet to the internet it struggles to load the game. I dont know whether this is because it cannot connect to the servers or what.

For example I loaded up LBP just fine, but when I connected my ethernet it asked me if I wanted to connect to the LBP servers, when I said yes it stayed on the connecting screen for ages.

Sometimes the ethernet cables have shorts in them and cant process the info if you can connect wirelessly to internet your downloads will take maybe a minute longer but for all games you should be just fine

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

We have two playstation 3 slimline and have trouble playing them online we can get one to play but the other lags and takes ages to load a game, which ever console loads up second seems to have this...


Is this only while playing online? what is your intenet connection like? (ie Speed/set up)

generally if you have a router with several consoles or PCs connected, if one is demanding a lot of bandwidth (ie Gaming or downloading) this can throttle the connection for other PCs or consoles connected. This situation can be made worse if the consoles are both wireless.
A few options are:
1)Check your broadband speed - upgrade if possible
2) Check your router, does it have an option to prioritise one PS over another?
3)Connect the playstations via wired ethernet cables giving better reliability
4)Upgrade your router (or get one if you dont have one) that has a higher connection speed for internal connections. Gigabit connection should be standard though.

hope this helps

Bought a new game, played an hour, froze, now doesn't load.


I had the same problem with GTA4.  I had to get an update for the game.  Check the website for updates for that game.  I also had to change a setting with the way it connects to the network.

Are you connected wirelessly? If so try and connect using an ethernet cable.

Won't read game while hooked up to the internet


Take out any USB sticks or Memory stick you have plugged into the machine. Are you trying to use a TIFF exploit? That would do it.
