My console has crashed one to many times due to Red Dead and is now permanently damaged (reformatting no longer fixes the PS3's inability to read discs after a crash). Awesome.
40 GB model

There's something really wrong with this game, my original 60 GB got YLOD after 10 minutes playing the game...I didn't blame it direclty on the game as it had to happen while playing a game as that's what I do with the PS3
But then another buddy from my site that also has a 60 gigger and also never had any issues with it got YLOD!
The game demands a certain FW to work which means they use something in the SW right?....it wouldn't surprise me that launch PS3 are affected by som bug as this wouldn't be the 1st time
But how to prove this?? I got a SLIM then next day but I would be really "sad" if I find out that it's actually the game doing something wrong...we'll never know, they'll patch soon probably and those affected?...well, bad luck

I too got these freezing issues.
For now, it happened once in Free Roam mode, but it mostly happens during the same mission, "Wild Horse Tamed Passions". I can play the first half of this mission without a problem but when Bonny and I are riding and meet the other dudes near Armadillo, the game/console always freezes in the curve about 2 secondes after meeting the dudes.
Tried this missions about 5 times, always the same freezing problem at the same place except for one time where I was able to get past this point but about 30 secondes later, I fell through the ground. I was stuck and when I pressed START, all I got was the red page with no menu option. Had to reboot the PS3.
