Freezing in games, occurs when the processing unit tries to process to much data than what it can handle. It usually affects those games that have loads of action sequences or those that require a lot of charcter input e.g Sim games.

 

TIP:

To limit freezing, after major action sequences, keep the movement  to a minimum by having your character standing still for a moment; so the processing unit has time to catch up.


I've a better tip, *******


So many people are quick to undermine everything I write. All I'm doing is trying to help; so if this is what you get by doing that, then I won't even bother next time.


That's because you've no idea what you're on about.

I get the occasional freeze on Internet Explorer and I remember a lot of people had issues with their copies of Black Ops in the past. give your slim a clean, blu-ray lens cleaner and same with disc. (though Home is not disc related it is browser related.)

Mine has frozen a few times, but I think all of those were either on Fallout 3 or Home.

Mine did that yesterday and this morning my console YLODed :'( I owned it for 3 weeks but it was a pretty early model. My advice if its in warranty, send it to Sony or take it to the store you purchased it from and they should either fix it or replace it! :)
