PS3 Freeze fix?

71 replies 14467 views Edited Jan 18, 2008
Hi!
I've had my PS3 for just over a year, but lately, it's been freezing up and random points during games-- Ridge Racer 7, Uncharted: Drakes Fortune, Assassin's Creed, and Warhawk. I don't think it's the blu-ray diode b/c it doesn't freeze during bluray movies, plus it still freezes during Warhawk--and I bought the d/l version. Inversely, I don't think it's the HDD becuse it doesn't freeze when I play PSN games like Super Stardust or game demos like Ratchet and Clank.

Has anyone else had any similar problems? Any fixes?

Much appreciated, fellow Playstation enthusiasts!

I had the same problem, called Sony.  They were NO HELP, told me to re-fromat, well that made me lose all my EA data (not copyable).  Second, it didn't work, now they are going to send me a box to put my PS3 in to be exhanged.  Tuff luck, but, I think you need a new PS3.
