    This has bugged me a little bit recently, and last night I got a little too frustrated and just stopped playing altogether...

    Motorstorm and NBA 2K7 both have some slowdown issues with my PS3, and I was wondering if there were any more people who had similar problems? With NBA it's particularly noticeable on the free throws and for the first minute or so of each match that I play... And on Motorstorm it's alright until someone blows up right next to me, then it slows down a little bit...

    It almost seems as though the PS3 is struggling to process the data, which I find slightly shocking...

    Anyone else finding this?

    I too have noticed some slowdown in Motorstorm. It doesn't bother me TBH. Whilst polished and looking like a proper next-gen title, it is merely a launch game, and I know it will be eclipsed. Tech wise, R:FOM is very good. A fantastic looking game in places, and NEVER any slowdown.

    I noticed a bit of a drop in framerate for the first 30 secs in each game of NBA 2K7, but it doesn't really bother me.

    Yeah, I've seen it in Motorstorm fairly regularly when things get particularly hectic.

    Oh and you thought the PS3 would not have problems with games, Thats just the 360 right?

    One piece of advice from me if you will....

    Dont believe the hype....Dont dont believe the hype.

    Not so much Motorstorm, it doesn't bother me in that... But NBA was *very* noticeable last night, and although I'll still play the game it just annoyed me... It's supposed to be a fast-paced game, and it just seemed that it was being slowed down unnecessarily...

    I get the same thing happening on my PS3, but it isn't bad enough to bother me at all... I think the slowdown problem is much worse during online play so lag could also be an issue...

    Did people notice this before the 1.70 firmware upgrade? I've noticed the problem recently but for the life of me i acn't remember having it before when playing motorstorm. Maybe i just missed it or getting to the higher levels make the game more frantic and the machine less able to cope.

    On NBA its easily fixed by going on to 'Game Speed' in the settings section... move the toggle well into the 60s and the game is smoother, less jerky and quicker but not unrealisticly fast either...:lesson:

    No true.
    I have noticed some,when you use the zoom mode with the machine gun and it gets a bit hectic with the spider thingies coming at you and you drop a greande that causes an explosion so there is a lot going on on the screen you get a little bit.

    With NBA 2K7 it's the latest 1.7 firmware update that makes the game slowdown for the first 30 seconds of a match. This has been posted on a couple of other forums where the game was running fine on 1.6 but as soon as the 1.7 update is applied then the problem occurs.

    Strange but true I'm afraid.

    That's fixed it :) Didn't think to do that!

    As for it being the 1.7 FW update, that's odd...
