I tried everything you suggested. Also, using a different poster's solution, I deleted everything that  had to do with GoW3 off of my HDD and deleted a bunch of data I didn't need or want, and I saved a save file on a USB stick. Then I copied the file back on to the HDD, didn't apply the patch update, and did the chase with Hermes again. I managed to make it past the catapult only to have the sound start looping after the statue is smashed. I can fight Hermes fine, but once I beat him, footsteps keep looping and Hermes' dialogue is cut off. I can do the QTE where you cut off his legs, subtitles like, "Go away!" and "Leave me alone!" appear, but Hermes isn't saying anything. Once I cut off the second leg and he falls to the ground, the audio loops again and the game freezes up.


That is EXACTLY the same problem I am having in the exact same area. I have tried cleaning the disc, but there really wasn't much dirt or smudges to clean. I tried the file restoring options, playing without patches, all that crap doesn't work. What the HELL, Sony? This is absolutely unacceptable. I see how long it's been and am assuming at this point that they just don't give a **bleep** anymore.

Re: God of War 3 - Freezing Issues

Oct 25, 2012

Same here I'm having problems with this game, I just bought last month PS3 Slim 160GB CECH3xx12A model together with GoW Saga then play GoW 1 and 2 for a couple of weeks without having any problems then after finishing GoW 1 and 2 Try playing this awesome GoW 3 then I'm having problems with the cutscene having delay audio's sometimes looping voices over the cutscene but during gameplay never encounter problems, only with the cutscenes, I patched my GoW 3 also to the latest version which is 1.03, and never encounter audio loops on other games and laggy cutscenes on other games like FFXIII and FFXIII-2 I think this game is buggy, I also tried all the suggestion on this forum still never works I seemingly found out that when playing this game HDD never stops blinking I think this is one of the most reason why is this game is like this because the game is caching in the hard disk while reading the blu-ray disc.

I bought this game with such enthusiasm, only to be disappointed. The massive game breaking glitch! Yes I am talking about the freeze issue.

 

Right after you kill that smith god, and move to Aphrodite's chamber and when you move towards the that exit that big door the game freezes.

 

Has anyone found a fix for this yet? The lack of support from the devs at this issue is beyond me.

Re: God of War 3 - Freezing Issues

Jan 13, 2013
I have a problem with this game too. I already completed the game one over a year ago and back then there were no problems. However I recently tried to play it on my PS3 and I tried to do the challenges but the game would just load forever. Then I selected the "new game" option and everything is worse since the game takes a while to load and the audio constantly mutes for a few seconds and other times it would just loop every 1 second of audio and then overlap itself while the audio that supposed to come comes. The game also freezes randomly and that loading symbol just spins in the corner. Also there are many times where the audio will play but the video will freeze for a couple of minutes and then resume with no audio. I've tried two copies of the same game and I still get the problem. I also formatted my HDD, rebuilt my database, restored my system and reset my PS3 to default settings but it still doesn't work. I also exchanged my PS3 twice but the problem still exists. Not only that but I also sent my PS3 to Sony to get it checked and they tested both copies of the game I had and a copy of their own and they said they never experienced any of the problems I had when testing it. They said the played up to the Hades boss fight on each disc. By the way my first PS3 was a 120GB regular slim and the two exchanged ones were 160GB regular slims.
I've also replace HDD's.

Please help.

God of War 3 - Freezing Issues

Feb 9, 2013

I was having the same problem.

 

It was freezing over and over again after you pass Aphrodite the second time.

 

What I did was:

Deleted the Game Content. NOT the save. Just the data at GAME DATA UTILITY.

 

Then I disconnected the internet cable, so the PS3 would have no means to get online. Doing this I skipped the patch download.

Now, it works, I got past the point were I was stuck. I'm playing now, hope it won't freeze again.

 

That made me realize something....the problem is not the HD or the disc...IT'S THE PATCH 1.03.

DON'T download it, get offline to play.

 

Hopefully, you'll have no problem.

 

I really hope I've helped you solve your problems. I know how it feels not to be able to finish the game.

 

Best Regards
