  • Yep, I’ve had problems with my PS3 since the update. I have a brand new copy of Batman Arkham Asylum and it’s frozen on me 3 separate times, and all 3 times happened at different points, once in the middle of walking, once on the start screen, and once it wouldn’t even load up the game. I hope they get this fixed, but I must say I’m relieved to hear that it’s the update that’s making my PS3 freeze up and not something more serious!
