its funny cuz i just read a bunch of the same situations bout the ps3 freezing and its also been happening to me since november, maybe it was some type of 11 11 2011 virus but whatever it is needs to be fixed cuz that cant possibly be good for our systems, i need to know more bout this, anyone?
Torres212, I'm having the same issue. Played MW3 just about every day since it came out (lame I know, but i like it). Last weekend, PS3 started freezing only in MW3 multiplayer matches. Not in campaign or spec ops. I talked to Activision during a live chat and they acknowledged - "it's a problem we do see sometimes as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 tends to spin much more often than other games due to it's advanced engine".
So, MW3 may have permanently damaged your (and my) system. My next step is to call Sony and see what can be done. Since my warranty is up, i'm sure they will say "sorry buddy, you're on your own".
At the very least, this explains what the problem is. The solution is a different story.
seeing how its outsold just about EVERY game in video game history.... its not surprising that most are going to be playing MW3 more than any other game.... even if most of the players are children not old enough to fall into the Mature category
Define "most gamers". If that means what you're seeing on the internet, then that's a very skewed representation. Nobody is going to go on the web and say "OMG!! MY PS3 IZ WURKN FIN!! PLZ DON HLP!!".
