I've looked through the forum posts but haven't seen this pop up, apologies if I missed it though.
I've reached 99% of the game and get in the lift with Ellie. The movie shows me hitting the button and going down but as soon as the doors open my PS3 freezes and ultimately crashes when I try to skip the movie to the point that I have to take the power cable out.
I've tried re loading, restarting and also leaving it and coming back.
It's not an overheating issue as it will happen every time no matter how little or long I've been using the ps3 for.
Does anyone have any ideas please as it's stopping me from finishing the game.
I have a similar problem, when I enter under the bridge to go to the hospital and I started the fighting with the monsters underground my game is freezed, but the music not. I only can turned off the system and restart it, but the same thing happens...

I had exactly the same problem. After a couple of PS3 restarts I ended up creating a new profile and copying over the saved data from my main profile. It worked straight away after that.
I think it is still an airspace issue. Perhaps try removing the 1.02 patch and/or disabling internet connection, then loading the game. I found that after waiting an hour, the citizens finally skips, but then when you go to save/load, the automating problem is occurring that was evident prior to 1.02,
I'm otherwise lost on this, hopefully they will sort it out with another patch, just leave your save game until they sort it out I guess. I know, frustrating right?
