my call of duty 4 has been freezing unusually, i think it was the update, it freezes so bad that the xmb or no buttons will work
My 2nd pad has stopped working? I doubt that thta has anything to do with it, but I can’t play uncharted (which I rented!)
I’ve had game freezes with other games too, including NHL 3 on 3 hockey. Usually when switching between game and in-game XMB.
