My postman recently(Xmas) got a 40gb PS3. He just told me today that it was having problems loading games. He phoned sony and was told that this is a common problem and to go back to the store and exchange it. I was really suprised to hear this as a PS3 owner of some nine months. It must be a new problem connnected with the 40gb version. But even if it is, could it have come at a worse time for Sony?
