Yesterday an image (taken from Respawn Entertainment "Interview with Developer" footage) sparked a rumor that TitanFall is in development for Playstation consoles (PS4/PS3) as well (for those who are unaware of TitanFall is Xbox platform exclusive).
The image showed a Respawn employee, PS3 dev kit, Dualshock 4 controller (probably). Well Respawn Entertainment has responed on this entire sequence, Playstation fans sorry for some bad news.
It seems like Playstation fans have to wait a little bit longer for TitanFall. Let us know in the comment section below what you guys think of Titanfall being a Microsoft exclusive game?.
@NicholasGigante that's from 2010. No PS4 controllers existed then. Also, we play games at work so we have all systems. Got a WiiU also :)
Some new details about PS3 firmware 4.45 has arrived on internet. According to reports coming out from official Playstation and other forum, it seems like PS3 owners with an upgraded third part ITB hard drives are having issues with recently released firmware 4.45.
As a preventive measure Sony has temporarily taken offline PS3 firmware 4.45 and are investigating actual cause of problems. But here are some possible temporary solutions for PS3 firmware 4.45 issues (as reported by PS3 gamers on official Playstation Forum).
Few users suggested restoring the file system or updating again via SafeMode, whereas others have had to allow PS3 to completely reformat their HDD (this is not viable option as you will loose all your downloads and save data if you don't have PS Plus subscription. PS Plus members have game saves in the cloud).
Furthermore, If your PS3 is stuck on wavy screen, UNPLUG PS3 from the wall and then restart the console, it will reboot normally without any issues.
