This is the mail I sent to Rockstar Games:
Dear Rockstar Games,,null,First of all please excuse my English in the following message.,null,I have bought Red Dead Redemption on the day coming out in Europe, may 21th. When I started the game I started to experience crashing and freezing of the game.,null,The first time happened when I was in front of McFarelyn's house, at the spot where you can hitch your horse, I was jumping upon my horse and jumped when suddenly the game crashed and I got back to the Cross Media Bar (PS3 head-menu).,null,The second time was during a cut scene with Mr. W. Dickens introducing his great potion for all sicknesses and makes your eyes go faster, this time the game crashed as well and got back to the Cross Media Bar again.,null,The third time the game froze when running (holding X) in Thieves' (something), the city east from McFarelyn's farm. I was searching for the scrap for the Walton's suit, behind the first big house when entering this city, seen from the side of McFarelyn's office.,null,Besides these crashes and freezes, I also had a couple of freezes being in the main menu.,null,I have got a 120GB PS3 Slim, well ventilated in a room with plenty of air (windows are open as well) and a room temperature of 21 degrees Celsius. ,null,As far as I know I do not have any hardware issues, since I played other games hours straight, without problems.,null,The game itself has no dust or scratches, I always keep my discs very clean.,null,I hope you are able to answer why the game is crashing and freezing, perhaps I am doing something wrong. Which I cannot imagine as I did nothing special.,null,Sincerely,,Maikel Haas

I just want to point out that my fan is NOT working that hard. Just like normal when I play other games...
And it freezes to often to get overheated!!
Hi, launch 60gb here also.
Worth noting I originally played on my brothers 2 month old slim for 4 hours without a single hiccup. Worked flawlessly.
On my gen1 60gb the game can't even be classed as playable.
Not happy really
I am also have lots of freezing problems with my 60gb PS3, Yesterday the game froze whenever I entered a cut scene, the first time been during the intro video, so I skipped that next try and got the same freeze issue during the cut scene at the Fort. Most of the freezing I am experiencing is during cut scenes but it has also frozen during normal gameplay.
Today has been a little better, I manage to get from the start of the game, watching all cut scenes up to the point when the mission to ride the cart to Armadillo and then it freezes as I get told to drive the cart, reloaded and then twice afterwards it locked up during the ride.
Basically at this point the game is unplayable and I am almost at the point of taking it back, which is a real shame as I have really enjoy what I have managed to play so far.
