New PlayStation All-Stars 1.02 update causing crashes

If you haven't already done so, then hold off from updating your PSABR game to the latest version that came out. Reports are that it is causing crashes and problems. The patch, which was supposed to better balance the game is causing havoc for some.

The patch was supposed to offer:

  • A new item, Medusa’s Gaze, has been added to the game
  • View Invites has been added to the Party Bar Menu
  • Voice chat icon added to loading screens
  • AI logic enhancements
  • Network performance improvements
  • Issue where players were stuck with a different character than the one picked has been addressed
  • Issue with matchmaking in regards to player skill has been addressed
  • Overall improvements to network connectivity

Sackboy changes

  • Level 1 Super - Increase cost from 100 to 150 AP
  • Level 2 Super - Increase cost from 325 to 400 AP
  • Level 3 Super - Increase cost from 600 to 750 AP
  • Jam Session (Neutral Triangle) - Reduced AP generation from 25 down to 10 AP
  • Cakeinator (Neutral Circle) - Reduced AP generation from 25 down to 20 AP

Add a comment if you've got it and its fine, or if its causing problems. The game itself has had decent reviews but failed to set the charts alight, but does look fun! I'm seeing figures on Twitter of it only selling 88,000 copies (8,000 on Vita) which isn't too shocking as you can get the PS3 version and the Vita edition for free.

That seems to have prompted a price cut, although I can't see it on the EU PSN, any ideas?
