WHOA Just had a terrifying black screen

Jesus Christ. Happily riding about on Shadowmere near Dawnstar when the whole screen went black. PS3 never turned off and here I am now, on the XMB. No message, no PS button was pressed, nothing. I've never ever had a fatal crash like this before on a PS3 game.

Is that normal? On any PS3 game? **** me, I thought the thing was going to YLoD on me, a fortnight before Christmas. I need a drink.

I had a game straight out crash on me and deliver a pop-up telling me to refer to the development console for error messages, and then force me to reset.

Pretty sure it was one of the Modern Warfare games, actually. Seems about right.

Something like this has happened to me but not while i was playing skyrim.It has happened to me like two or three times to me.Forgot exactly which games i was playing but i think it happened once when i was playing new vegas.

I think I saw a video on youtube of a guy mentioning this while showing off backwards flying dragons.

YLOD, that would've sucked :\

At least you weren't playing on Xbox, the odds of RROD are pretty much 3-4x higher than YLOD.

I had this same problem but with Fallout new vegas, its the same game engine so it happens every now and then, like a low low chance. It happened to me twice with fallout new vegas and nothing happen to my ps3

so i dont think anything bad would happen, plus this was happening on my 250gb ps3
