Wow i can't believe i started all this and then bailed. definately didn't mean to do that. sorry
first off i didn't know it was in a 360 thread cuz i always use the new post button when i look for threads. just a habit i picked up cuz i like to chime in on the active topics. i'll make sure not to post in the 360 forums with my ps3 questions in the future.
now i still haven't been able to get into a game for very long. i couldn't figure out how to disable the psn for some reason so i tried to start the new game anyhow and it started. but then i was driving for like ten seconds and it froze up on me. where exactly do i have to go disable the internet connection. i was thinking about just unplugging the ethernet cable but wasn't sure if that would help. thanks
No need to apologise for posting on the wrong thread. Those guys were unnecessarily harsh anyway. I do the same thing with the new posts option and nowhere in the thread title did it way xBox anyway. I still think its all nonsense since the gameplay is 97% the same. What the hell, they are over there talking about how to bang Michelle and I'd have something to add to that but I won't post over there because its off limits. Michelle is so over rated. She's easy and sounds distracted when you slip her the sausage.
Anyway, I can't remember if you are wired or wireless. If wired just disconnect. If wireless, then go into the PS3 menu for system and scroll down until you get to the internet connections section. There is a toggle to turn on and off the internet connection. I think there is also one around the same area to turn off the PSN.
If you don't do this then the game might let you load and play for a while but then lock up on you without warning sometimes hours later.
From what I hear it server issues. Last I checked people were thinking that when you start a game your PS3 sends some of your saved characteristics to the server. I'm going to bet that its future unlockables linked to HOME. The farther you are in the game the more crap you'll be able to buy off HOME.
But since HOME isn't ready yet the data transfer is causing those servers to shit. I'd bet this game has something to do with HOME. I mean its going to be the biggest thing for Sony until next month when Metal Gear concludes.
This is why Gran Tourismo Prologue 5 is only $39. Basically, they want the full version of GT5 to be HOME compatable but the game was essentially complete. The current version only has like 71 cars and 6 tracks. GT4 had 700+ cars and 50 tracks.
Oh and GTA4, I hear there are over 200 pidgeons you can run over for bonus points.
