Any ideas? It's extremely frustrating because I just to to shoot clowns (as bad as that sounds, it's all in the gaming sense lol).
Thanks for the tip, I'll try that out next time if I can figure out how to do it.
GUARANTEED FIX FOR SPINNING RING AND MULTIPLAYER CONNECTION ISSUES.
I HAVE GIVEN THIS METHOD TO 5 FRIENDS AFTER USING IT MYSELF ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS ON DIFFERENT NETWORKS AND IT WORKED EVERY SINGLE TIME ABSOLUTELY FINE.* REBUILDING DATABASE WILL ONLY TAKE MINUTES BUT WILL DELETE MESSAGES BE WARNED*
Delete patch 1.17, switch PS3 off, hold power button for 10secs do not release and it will turn on and off automatically, Hold power button the next time you switch on and you will hear 2 slow beeps and 2 fast beeps, after the slow beeps. Release power button on the second set of fast beeps, and it will open a secret PS3 Menu. Click rebuild database, it may delete some DLC's when deleting patch 1.17 possibly, which you can reinstall via view downloads in PS Store FREE. Then re-install patch 1.17. And it should work fine.
Please copy and paste this wherever you see this issue if it worked for you. Thankyou.
I just turned on my ps3 and a system update popped up so I installed that. I'm clueless when it comes to things like these, so I appreciate everyone's advice so far, thanks
