Sony and Rockstar Release Statement on L.A. Noire Issues

May 19, 2011 -

After pointing the finger at the newest firmware update for PS3 as the cause of the console overheating while playing its crime noire game, L.A. Noire, Rockstar Games has backpedaled today. The company released a joint statement with Sony saying that the new firmware was not the root cause of the problem. Neither company claims to know what exactly is the cause of the PS3 overheating problem related to L.A. Noire either.

From the PlayStation Blog:

"We have received a very small number of customer support questions about PS3s overheating or shutting down while playing L.A. Noire. At this time, Rockstar Games and Sony can confirm that neither L.A. Noire or firmware update 3.61 are causing the PS3 hardware to overheat. We are both committed to working hard to find solutions to this and any issues that may arise."

The post directs anyone having issues with L.A. Noire on PS3 hardware to contact RockStar's technical support or Sony's PS3 support:

So...  The only two parties who could be to blame both agree that neither party is to blame?  Have I got that right?  Whose fault do they suppose it is, the customer's?

Re: Sony and Rockstar Release Statement on L.A. Noire Issues

That means that neither the L.A. Noire software or the Playstation firmware is to blame BY THEMSELVES. However, the two combined could make this happenned. Both softwares could have a part that couldn't work with the other.

It feels good to see though, that they're working together to fix this instead of throwing the blame to the other.

WonderkarpI didnt know we were talking about Capitalism. What do mass shootings have to do with trade and industry that is controlled by private owners for profit?01/25/2015 - 3:28pm
ConsterYou do realize that what you're doing right now isn't what capitalism means, right?01/25/2015 - 2:39pm

ZippyDSMleeeffect like confusion,ect. QTEs are a gimmick that can easily be shallow because you are looking to mess with conditioned responses and nothing messes with them more than random gameplay changes..01/24/2015 - 7:58pm
ZippyDSMleeWonderkarp: They tried to be natural with God Of Wars QTE’s, sometimes it felt random which I hate the most in QTEs. The way you interface with gameplay (press X to get X result) should never rely on randomly generated mechanics unless it’s a status01/24/2015 - 7:57pm

Neo_DrKefkaHey GamePolitics staff can you guys work out the way the ads are delivered via mobile? Sometimes any attempt to do anything on this site automatically forwards you to download "Flappy bird" on a shady site or another thing. It just hijacks my Safari01/24/2015 - 3:47pm
WonderkarpI feel like the only good QTEs were the ones in the God of War series. I dont know why though.. maybe its the visceral carnage01/24/2015 - 1:13pm
ZippyDSMleeprh99: QTEs are dumb I ever understood the need for them outside being cheap and wanting to pad mechanics with scripted events that use only a few buttons.01/24/2015 - 12:58pm
