Hi, Im am having issues with the new PS3 4.41 update. Whenever I play BF3 online it freezes every single game, no exception. It could be 10 seconds to 15 minute but it will freeze every game. This is frustrating me beyond belief! I have had a freezing issue with BF3 before but has been maybe 1 in 35 games which is fair enough in my opinion. But this is ricidouclous. Im not sure whether DICE hasn't prepared for future variables or the new PS3 update is buggy. But im very pi**ed off, BF3 is my favourite game online and not being able to play is extremely annoying. If anyone else is having this issue please post here, or if a solution is out there it would be very welcome.
Hey booke thanks for replying. No its on all maps, it will last at least 2 minutes then ps3 completely freezes. I have seen other posts about this issue with bf3 but it has never happened this frequently until I updated to 4.41. I would write to EA/DICE but ive see replys they have given which just seems to be read off a script sht. Very frustrating :/
Before the latest update, crashes in BF3 were almost non-existent for me, maybe once a month. Now it's about every 90 minutes--not as bad as yours--but it's always right after I'm killed, during the transition back to the spawn screen. Nothing has changed on my set up at all. I haven't even been playing any other games, so the update is almost certainly the culprit. If this problem is widespread hopefully DICE will offer a fix, although they're probably busy with 4.
"It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness, that is life."
It it becomes a bigger problem, most likely DICE will send out a update/patch for PS3 owners. You can do what Valk says and just delete the Game data only, Not the Saved data.
I know team death match is known for freezing for console, especially Seine Crossing. It always does it 70% of the time to me. But for now if nothing else works try to just pick maps/modes that don't freeze on you much.
Hey Light, Yea I have just done this but now i am getting the no-weapons gllitch on all games. I will try a few options in thes ps3 safe mode and see if that works, if not EA is going to have a very p***ed off customer at the end of the phone every day until its resolved
