    I hate it when you switch on the PS3 to play a game and then you're told you have to do a system update before you can do anything else.
    It is rather annoying.
    I thought my internet wasn't working; for some reason I was signed out. I went to change the settings and then BOOM! it needs an update.
    Very random timing. I love how it actually didn't tell me until I investigated what was going wrong.

    It told me immediately as I went on my account, I wasn't signed in to the PSN neither.

    WaW came today, either of you want to play some zombies later? Though I'll only have the first map for now. My friend said he was thinking of getting the most recent map pack for it, so maybe he'll let me share it.

    Just fired up MW2 for the first time in about 7/8 months. £22 it'll cost me for the new maps! Doesn't seem worth it with Black Ops round the corner.
    There's seems to be a lot more hype around Black Ops than I expected. A lot of people were disappointed and complained about WaW/Treyarch. But that all seems to have been forgotten.

    I reckon it's because we're in the "middle" period between the game being announced and the release. I'm sure it'll all come back when there's a month to go before the actual release.

    I'm on the fence when it comes to Black Ops as on the one hand, I really didn't like WaW's multiplayer and i don't like the fact that a new CoD is released each year, but on the other hand the majority of my friends have pre-ordered it and most of the fun of online games comes from competing with friends. I'll probably wait for reviews and see how many leave MW2 before I decide whether i'll get it or not.

    Yeah same here, I've not played a Treyarch game yet + I'm not the biggest CoD fan ever. I'd rather get GT5 first, followed by LBP2 then consider Black Ops later.

    Have you got auto-sign in on? Cos it will only tell you that you need to update when you try signing into the PSN.

    It's something to do with the PS Store, some new engine that they're gonna use that will recommend you games and stuff.

    It won't allow you to sign onto the PSN until you do the update. If you have auto sign in off (like me) then you can do anything you want to do offline and it won't bug you until you try going online.

    I dunno, I'm on 8... I'll whip up something just now later, give people a chance to sync their trophies. (Just the regular posters)

    Edit:
    Everyone sync your trophies!
