    Default PS3 Rage

    So I finally got my PS3...bought LittleBigPlanet...

    I can play it no trouble, but only if I don't do the update. When I do the update, sometimes it'll freeze at 0%, sometimes it'll get all the way to 14% (highest so far) and then have some connection error and screw up.

    All the other internet features (browser, etc) seem to work just fine, but the damn game update isn't working for me.

    Is this a common thing? Unfortunately I only have this one game, so I can't test to see if it does it with others as well...

    I'd really hate to have to return it, but I'd rather do so before the warranty runs out, as I bought it used.

    i dont know if they ever fixed it but try this:

    go into your Network Settings and, somewhere in there is a "Media Server Connection", choices Enabled or Disabled. Set it to Disabled. For some reason, having it Enabled interferes with game update downloads.

    I just gave that a try and I'm realy hoping it works. I was reading on the PS3 forums and I guess I'm not the only one. And yep, it looks like that did it. *knocks on wood*

    Thank Christ. Looks like its one of those questions without any real answers >_>

    How'd you fix it? The media thing did it for me. I noticed it kept saying "Media Somethingsomething has been disconnected" during the updates, so I figured thats what it was.

    I opened all the ports too, but that didn't really seem to help.

    I heard some people fixed it by plugging in their controllers

    Lol. Hope you got it fixed.

    It happened to me a few times but it was because I had a crappy router. Mine's ok now.

    I've got a LinkSys router, its never ever ever given me trouble, aside from maybe having to reset it every once in a while.

    That's what was happening to me, at first it was only once in a blue moon I had to reset my router, then it was every few days. Even had comcast come in and test the connection because we thought it was something on their end but it turned out to be our router was bad.

    I dunno if it's the same in your case, but try updating it at a friends and see if it completes.

    I have a Linksys and I used to have the same problem. Game updates would only update 1/10 tries. My uncle told me it was the router, and he updated the firmware on it. I haven't had any problems since then.

    I fixed the problem by selling my ps3, all my games, and buying a gaming computer.

    How is character customization user created levels and..."adorableness" (which was main thing in making me not want when I first saw) new? They just took the level creating a bit higher than what it was like before and slapped some online on dat shet.

    I didn't say they were new, but all of them combined, along with a little magic, makes for a great game.
