Every time I try to play my xbox 360 console says I need an update to play the game.What is the update and where do I get it?

If you have xbox live and you are connected to the internet your xbox will prompt you to update your game/console. At this point you have to be connected to the internet. At this prompt it should give you the option to download and install the update. Choose this option and it will start automatically and finish in time. DO NOT TURN YOUR XBOX OFF. Once this is done you should be able to play the game and your console/game will be updated.

My PS3 came up and stated that it needed to update. I do not have DSL or Cable Internet and I never have had to. The system has always updated off of a game I rented. Now it goes to 99% of the update and...

Turn off the power on the back of the console. Turn it back on while holding down the i/o button until it beeps 3 times this will force a reset. Worse comes to worse you could reformat the hard drive but this would eliminate any info you had stored on it. Sometimes the update info on the games is faulty and contains glitches which cause this problem. Until this year I've never played online and have experienced the same thing as well in the past

Trying to update ps3 but the ps3 is unable to find usb info

It could be the USB itself, have you tried a different one? If you can update via internet connection, you may want to explore that route. If you have issues updating via internet connection, make sure that your media servers are turned off as this may stop the upload. You can find the media server connections under the settings tab. Hope this helps.

No display when loading game

I have had advice directly from SCE that updates should be done from a flash Drive and not directly from the internet connection on the system, as its quicker and more stable.
I have just had my unit crash on me, by updating first the PSStore update patch, which caused the original issue, then an update for RSV2 pretty much finished it off.

Get the game right in the first place!!!??

Download freeze

Is this when you try a second and third time to download the same movie? Try a different one. Update to version 2.2 (came out last night). It has upgraded reliability for the internet. Hopefully that helps. Good luck!!
