Ps3 reboots when updating games
Step 1 – Remove the PS3 hard drive compartment lid from the right side of the console.
Remove the blue screw at the top edge that is inside of the compartment with a jeweler's Phillips head screwdriver.
If this is the case, research firewall settings that permit PS3 gameplay, but also keep networks secure.
Step 3 – Log onto the Playstation website and check for updates in order to upgrade the console firmware.
Step 1 – Turn the modem that the PS3 is being connected to off (or reset it).
If the PS3 will not connect to the Internet, proceed to the next step.
Step 2 – Disable the network's firewall to see if it is interfering with the PS3 connecting to the Internet or the PS network.
The Play Station 3 (PS3) is a popular video game and multimedia console that Sony Corporation produced.Had ps4 for a year now and before getting the console I read you can play games while there installing but whenever I go to do this it says start application without updating so does this mean if I play it the update will stop?No, you can play and the update will continue to download in the background, when you finish playing check how much of the update ( s ) has downloaded ( go to Notifications, then to Downloads and there the update (s) and how much of it/them will appear ), if the update hasn´t finished downloading fully put the console in rest mode for the download to continue.no, that update is needed when you want to use network services like the store; the one we are talking about is playing the game without downloading updates first.Step 4 – Connect the PS3 USB cable to the front of the console and the top of the game controller, then press the “PS” button.Step 5 – Choose “Option 5” to restore the PS3 and select “Yes” to perform the restoral step. When prompted, press the “PS” button and enter the initial configuration settings for the PS3.
Step 6 – Choose “Yes” on the subsequent screen and turn off the console after the hard drive reformats and reboots.
