Re: Starhawk beta has wrecked my ps3

Feb 25, 2012

I;d like to chime in and say, I really dont think is simply an isolated hardware incident.

Ive attempted to play the Beta twice now, and both times receieved that data corruption error, I even reinstalled the beta.  But when I attemped to try my other demos I have installed the ps3 began to making really harsh whiring sounds and the demos stuttered and hiccupped on rebooting.

Ive never experienced this or any of the errors ive recieved since installing the StarHawk beta before..

So there is definitely a serious problem and I have sinced deleted the demo until I know the issues have been rectified.

Sony only recently implemented the corruption check on crash without manually getting into the debug menu and it does not need to be used every time.

A couple of things:

First, replacing the HD will not void your warranty.

Second, If you do "crash" using a Fat PS3, try to avoid killing the power using the switch if you can and make sure you don't have a disk in the drive while playing this. It has no real effect other than why risk your disk drive if you don't have to.

Also, for those of you who do replace your HDD, take note that although the PS3 will accept any old 2.5" SATA, the PS3 is only SATA 1.0 with a 1.5 Gb/s max transfer rate. The current HDD is 5400rpm and going up to a SATA 2.0/3.0 7200rpm or 10,000rpm won't give you much of an improvement due to the transfer rate ceiling at a much higher risk of over heating.

Since my ps3 is dead, I have tried getting a 60 gb from my friend for $60. Would I be able to use my 40 gb hard drive and blu-ray drive with the 60 gb model without many problems? Please help so I can get back to gaming.

Actually..Every since the update on Starhawk 1.2.10, my Ps3 has been acting up a lot. Like it freezes in the middle of games including Starhawk. Now sometimes im just afraid to even click the icon to play the game...

I think I've been having the same problem. I have the slim ps3 and I tried to download starhawk on my ps3 and it messed up my hard drive. So u bought a new hard drive tried to redownload the game and it pauses a lot and I think I'm starting to hear the same nosies from my new hard drive.
