Nothing will fix the freezing for people that are getting them every 30m. This is rockstar's code that is the problem and they did not playtest on the older PS3s. I am now playing this in 30m bursts and am almost done with the game. A few more trophies here and there and I am done, FINISHED, with this company and their beyond ****** engine. The multiplayer is nothing better than a joke to me though the levels are kind of cool. These guys are grade B coders and that is that. They refuse to actually code for the PS3 or even port the game in the correct way and they do not bug test worth a damn. I am happy to say I stole this game for said reasons about freezing and I am not shy to admit that I did the right thing. I will be getting 27 bucks from amazon after I beat this shoddy crap and I will never look back nor will I ever play a rockstar port again. This thing has frozen my PS3 more than 50 times. I can only imagine when it's done that I will be very pleased. I hardly even view the cutscenes as that is a major point of freezing as is the coach rides. Beyond the freezes there are various graphical glitches apparent at all times when walking or riding anywhere. It is a constant glitch fest. Graphic distortions of RGB colors during cutscenes to geometric pillars appearing everywhere, etc. This game is a complete and utter mess. If rockstar continues to makes games for the PS3 on this engine they might as well shoot themselves imo.

First off I told you guys months ago, its a Bad Disk. For one thing, Family Videos got a bunch of bad disk's during the release. There is a perfect circle imprented on a quarter slice of the disc, you can not see it in florecent lights, only incandecent. Its not the XBox circle that goes around the disc, its in a one quart slice and about the size of the 0 on your keyboard.
Second. If after attempting to restore your corrupted file system via your PS3's service menu, your RDR still does not work, try a different BlueRay Disc.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
When you don't buy Games new you get peoples broken games,
Craigslist = place to sell your broken stuff.
And why would you re-sell your broken game that you purchaced used and already broken?
Your the fool who got took! Just chuck it up as a loss and don't buy used games from individual people!

i am now sure that it is an issue with your chipsets over heating as when the thermal paste dries up there is nothing there to tranfer the heat to the heat sink thus either causing freezing and or graphic artifacts or burning out your chipset completely,keeping it cool can help but even if u freeze it it will do no good if theres no thermal paste aka silver oxide to transfer the heat from the chipset to the heatsink where it is then dispured out of your system by way of the huge fan and vents also dust build up inside is a major concern for any kind of electronic especially ones that are used as much as our ps3.it is only a matter of time before these to problems can combine and cause the system to fail altogether.

My game would freeze about every 5 min to 1 hour gameplay. both discs (rdr and undead) were clean and data was not corrupt. My fix was simple. I took the ps3 apart and cleaned the lens on the blu ray drive. Since then I have had over 30 hours with rdr with not a single freeze. My unit is 4+ years old and out of warrenty. Probally a speck of dust on the lens. Rockstar made this game so it was min HD install and it reads the disc constantly. Taking the system apart is not hard and I also got 4 years worth of dust out of it. It runs cooler and quiter also. Now i can trully enjoy RDR.
People who say the game is overheating the system are wrong. At first I though maybe overheat but it is impossable to have a cold start and have the game overheat in a few minutes then freeze while every other game works. Keep your system CLEAN!!!!!! I had a dirty lens NOT ROCKSTARS FAULT.

Please tell me someone found a fix to this by now! I just got the game from Amazon for $40 and I can't get past the SECOND mission. I have delted the game options folder, restored my system, etc. NOTHING seems to solve it.
Please help, at this point it is really frustrating. I have never had an issue with other games like this.

Oh yes, my console has frozen many times while playing RDR.
Has anyone had a lot of slowing down/ or lagging while John Marston
is passing or entering a town, like Blackwater, Fort Mercer, Armadillo etc?
