Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 quit working

I bought my son a ps3. He's been playing 'need for speed carbon' and 'spiderman3' with no problem - the display never messed up.
This Christmas I gave him 'Assasins Creed', 'Tony Hawks Proving Grounds', 'Guitar Hero3', and 'God of War'. He said the ps3 has been randomly freezing up. He would turn it off and start it up again. However, yesterday when he turned it on the display wasn't working, though he could hear it running. What's going on? Please help.

Cord loose at the back of tv and or ps3? Check it and make sure its snug. Assasins Creed gives freeze problems. Try updating to the latest firmware for ps3.

My son has problems playing on line and blames the internet provider ( orange) would it work better with another internet provider ?

for playing games online and in real time you need a good internet connection with good download and upload speeds..a speed of 1MBPS should be quite find out from Orange what speed they are giving..or check the speed in if other applications are connected to the internet can affect speed and other network computers,downloads etc..if the speed is less you can always change the internet plan..some ISP are quite game friendly eg for Xbox live..hope it helps!
