This is completely ridiculous. I have had games freeze. I could barely play through Red Dead on my 80GB metal gear PS3 but I did and beat it. I cannot even get past the first cutscene in GOW 1 and this is not acceptable for a product on the market. This is a sloppy port for some users with older PS3's. Again, these guys are doing Ico and Shadow and I will be raising hell if this happens again. I cannot for the life of me believe this game is not getting patched. WTF is the problem. Most first party games have attentive devs that listen. I will be looking at the blog for the first instance to talk with these devs about this. My game is not playable. I bought the game. NOT ACCEPTABLE.
PS3 debug menu for the win. I rebuilt the harddrive and restored the file structure and everything is running much better. Only one freeze but I am now enjoying this game and others without glitches as well.
