Could just be a glitchy game you're playing.

Yeah but that means they break inside warranty, so youre covered.. Unlike ps3 which seems to break the day after your warranty runs out.

Re: why does my ps3 keep freezing?

Some games freezes allot, like Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, This is one of the reasons Bethesda changed the game engine for their games (Elder Scrolls: Skyrim), my point is, see if it does on specific games or any game, are you getting error messages or is it just freezing as if a screen shot on a PC is taken?

 

But if you’re not playing a game that’s not known to freeze, maybe it’s an issue with the PS3 its self, is it well ventilated? Are its vents free from dust? Etc.

 



I'd rather be a gamer than one of societies drones!
