Hi I am beggining to find that I am having to restart my ps3 more and more due to the freezing of games. They have been bought from brand new and have no scratches. my ps3 is a 250 gb slim and is connected to the net via wifi. I have a eye camera attached . the games I have been playing are LBP and heavy rain. I am on version 3.15 of firm ware. It is within its warranty and I was wondering if I should get a replacement? If so would I lose all of my downloads?

Re: PS3 keeps freezing when I am playing games

 

It's not exactly a problem with your ps3! Sony was stupid when making these things because they tried to put so much power into a little box. Where they screwed up is there is JACK SH*& for system cache and the pipelines to the processor are to narrow and cannot transfer as much data as the software is calling for from the HD, Cache, RAM, and the lovely 1X read speed the blue ray drive has. Like I said man not exactly your systems fault, It’s the makers!

in your shoes, I would (get a replacement)

 

as long as you set up your same account on the new one, you will be able to re-download everything :smileyhappy:

make sure you 

a) sync your trophies

b) backup your game saves

c) deactivate your account

 

before swapping it.

 

as you have a slim, you shouldn't be being affected by the current 50F problem, so you shouldn't need to wait :smileyhappy:

And we weren't even testing for that.. :Thumbs:

Hi, I was playing MW2 and my PS3 ( 80G ) and now my game is stuck in the system and when I try turning on my system it just beeps then shuts down. I am concerned about losing my titles and such. Anybody have any suggestions for my problem. It is so frustrating.

Re: PS3 keeps freezing when I am playing games

I am having exactly the same problem with FIFA 12. Has anybody got an ideas how to cure it. especially one of the "brains" at Sony.

Is it just FIFA 12?  try deleting your game data if so
