absolutley! a freezed hardware can cause damages. Theres no fan feedback or whatever.
What i had on my slim was really hard reading trys on the br. So not everything is on the hd.
And of course these br reading probs can cause random errors - and there we are.
how long they would need to fix this... 2010? ever?

I REALLY want to finish this game... as I was really enjoying it... I just don't understand why there hasn't been ANY news WHATSOEVER from Sony or Quantic Dream about fixing this problem...
we get reports about workarounds... I shouldn't have to disable my internet connection and uninstall my game just to play it! This is getting rediculous...
We're coming up on 3 weeks now and there has been NO information given to the consumers who spent $60 (or Euros or Pounds or Swiss Francs or Yen or any other currency)...
Can we at least get some news on what's going on?

I purchased my copy in Canada. Played up to the Manfred chapter and it froze. I started a new game and it froze just after the prologue too. I spoke to a rep at Playstation and they told me to go back a chapter and start playing from there. Their suggestion did not work. The rep said they are working on a patch. The first time I talked to someone there they said there was no problem, I told them to tell that to the 5000 and mounting people on this forum. The rep told me Playstation has had only a couple calls about the game. Maybe we should all start calling them!!!
I really want to finish this game!

I am ***** for the ARTISTS/PROGRAMMERS that worked on this game and did not had the time that they needed to polish the game. This is the cause for many many games out there and many others to come. The shareholders need their parts as fast as possible and then they say: "Hey let's patch this game afterwards even if it's not completely finished!". This is really ***** me off and I'm sure that the people that worked on this game are not completely satisfied with the game and wished they could take it back and work on it. After all, video games are a sort of art... at least for me.

Hey guys, adding my wieght to this post.
My game freezes whenever I try to load the chapter "On the loose", I'm using a second-gen 80GB PS3 and running my video and audio through an HDMI cable.
As it happens, I was able to view the start of this chapter yesterday - but RL got in the way, so I turned the game off. Came back to continue, and now I'm looking at a black screen. Been looking at it for about 30 minutes now.
Heavy Rain is a great game with great writing (and unfortunately spotty voice acting) that I would really like to finish, so the faster Sony of Quantic Dream can fix the myriad issues that plague it, the better!
