    The original messages.

    Here's the important part: "We have confirmed locally that multiple games (Rockstar and non-Rockstar) overheat or freeze only when 3.61 is installed."

    Sony can't catch a break, can they?

    Maybe they should try a different bait. Failure doesn't seem to be working too well.

    I suggest you change the topic title. Yes, its the same as the title in the source but the article mentions NOTHING about Sony telling Rockstar to shut up. Its pure speculation on the part of the source. Sensationalist nonsense

    Even if they weren't gagged by Sony, it's still pretty suspicious that the page disappeared.

    This.

    Rockstar was gagged by Sony. Its pretty obvious. And now it seems Sony is throwing Rockstar under the bus to save their own rep. Or what's left of it.

    Kinda funny too. Rockstar has always been strangely loyal to Sony. I've bought all my Rockstar games on Sony consoles except for GTA IV.

    UPDATE!!

    http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/arti...n-la-noire.html

    Very "small number" of complaints? Joint statements? This is even a bigger mystery than the ones found in LA Noire!

    its funny how the post doesn't mention that the xbox version has problems as well, and that there are a LOT of people who don't have any problems at all

    Anyone with common sense would remember that a lot of PS3's have been gathering dust over the past few months and SOME people buying LA NOIRE may just have let theirs gather too much dust (especially those who would normally play 24/7 but couldnt because of the PSN outage) and this is the first game they try after all this time...
    ...then pop... PS3 kaput.????

    Don't double post.

    I'm sorry but if you believe that when the PSN went down people just stopped playing their PS3's, then... just.. wow dude. Wow. That's all I have to say.

    Sony needs to pull something out of their asses if they want to look presentable this E3, It looks like Nintendo is going to win again, and thats sad.

    If a month's worth of dust can cause a console to overheat how the HELL is my Xbox surviving? My room's dusty as hell and it goes weeks without being played sometimes (damn exams) but its still alive.
    Your logic is fail.
