I just go Fallout New Vegas last night and am having freezing problems, are they any way to keep it from freezing up. Like last night my brother was going to play it and when he was making his character it froze on him and had to press the power button on the system to get reset.

Try deleting your Game Data (NOT SAVED DATA) and re-installing the game. This usually works quite well. Turning off the autosave can also help, although you will need to remember to manually save often.
Oh, and do you have your PS3 hooked up to the internet? If not, you should really. Before the updates came out New Vegas was a real mess.

Ok thanks I will try deleting the game data and auto save off and see if that help, and yes my ps3 is hooked up to the internet it had to do a update last night before we got to even play the game and it still froze.

Hopefully that will help.
When I first starting play NV, my game froze in the first five minute of playing. Deleting the Game Data fixed it right up. That being said, you can expect this game to freeze from time to time, but usually it happens later in the game once your save file gets larger. Be sure you save regularly to avoid losing lots of playtime.
Oh, and to avoid having to do a forced restart during a freeze, you can also just eject the disc. It will take a moment, but your PS3 will eventually spit you out into the XMB. It's a lot better for your machine than a restart.
Good luck and have fun.

Before i delete it should i go ahead and start it on my account to have a game save for me, or do you think it would be better to just go ahead and delete it and then start fresh with mine?

I shut off all autosave features including rest,wait, etc. and it hasn't frozen on me for the entire total 16 hours I've played it. (Just bought it)"I'm a hardcore nerd gamer, I am an immersed PlayStation member and I plat all my favorite games. I'm completely satisfied... well, when The Last of Us comes out anyways. "
as your game save file size increases, it will begin to freeze.
