Does you PS3 Freeze occasionally ?

31 replies 1073 views Edited Jul 7, 2009
What I mean by freeze is when you have to manually shut it down by holding down the power button or something when it is frozen. All of my friends who own a PS3 have said they experienced freezing once in a while, and I have also. So how bout you guys? I hope it is not damaging to my system.

Very rarely in a game, sometimes when entering the XMB and OFTEN when using the browser. In-fact 99% of the freezes I experience are browser related!
Note to SONY: Fix the browser!

The only time it freezes is when I use the browser, or playing Mirror's Edge level 6 yellow room, but that's another story.

My games freeze about twice a month, mainly Resident Evil 5. The browser on the other hand, freezes every other day. Ive had my Maxtor OneTouch 500GB USB external HDD freeze my PS3 a few times, usually its because I didnt let it completely load before I copied something off of it or its because I play music off of it while using the browser.

some games are more likely to freeze up on you than others also. I know fallout 3 has frozen up on me twice in a month and killzone 2 hasnt ever. other than that my PS3 has only frozen up on me while browsing or in the XMB when exiting the browser.(most of the time you can turn off your java script to help with that.) I dont think my PS3 has ever frozen up while browsing with the java script turned off.

 

Other freeze ups I've heard of but I havent experienced...Receiving message from friends while in game/writing text messages. But I dont use those features really.

All of the above are quite common I think and arent clues to a broken PS3 nessessarily.

My PS3 froze very rarely and most of the time on the browser, but then it started to freeze at the same point in my games everytime and then would no longer read games. That is what happens when your Blu-Ray dies
