Yes, as long as it is installed and the file isn't corrupted. Most freezing has to do with a dirty/dusty heatsink. Other freezing problems can stem from a bad platter in your hard drive. Also, if the cooling fan isn't reaching 3rd speed by the time it freezes then you need a new fan.

I keep having the same PSN connection problem I keep disconnecting. The thing is I live in dorms so I can't mess with anything like the modem. I am plugged in via Ethernet. Still have problems and it

try to configure your system to the dorms internet protocols first, then try at different parts of the day, too many people using the internet will kill bandwidth, leaving you disconnected a lot.

Crossfire game cheat


Mobile Suit Gundam is a popular Japanese animation show that has a number of series in its franchise. This cartoon has grown into more media including comic books, movies, action figures and video games. Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire was the first video game from this series to be released for the PlayStaion 3. This game was developed and published by Namco and released in conjunction with the PlayStation launch in November 2006.

Unlocking New Suits and Pilots

The Mobile Suit Gundam series is known for the vast number of robot suits that are used in space combat. These machines are piloted by humans and are the future replacement for ground and air troops. In Crossfire you are capable of unlocking many of the suits from different versions of the Gundam anime. None of these suits or pilots is available at the start of the game, so you must complete specific steps in order to unlock them as playable characters. Complete each step to unlock the corresponding character.
If you are able to reach the rank of colonel while playing the Federation storyline you will unlock the RX-78-2 Gundam suit. The Kampfer mobile suit becomes playable once you reach the rank of lieutenant colonel in the Zeon campaign. Reaching the rank of warrant general will unlock the first version of the Gundam mobile suit. Char Aznable is a special pilot that you can use once you complete the Zeon campaign mode on the very hard difficulty setting. Finishing the Federation story mode on the very difficult setting will release Amuro Ray as a playable pilot. Beating either campaign on the hard setting will unlock Fraw Bow as a new pilot. Kai Shiden becomes available as a pilot by beating either campaign mode on very hard. To unlock the Hildolfr Gundam suit you must reach the rank of brigadier general on the very hard setting. You have to reach this rank in the December time period before completing the unidentified enemy mission. A successful completion of this mission under these circumstances will also reveal the Gelgong mobile suit. The Xamel mobile suit becomes available in the December month of the Federation campaign. You must be playing on the very hard difficulty setting.

These new pilots and mobile suits have special abilities and strengths not available to those which are initially available for use.

Why is it my mag freeze and ps3 ? i could move or play but could not actual kill as if i am not part of the game anymore any fix on this?

How to fix your PS3 when it's frozen at start up

things you'll need:

* PS3
* TV
* Game Controller
* USB cord


The first thing your going to want to know is your model number. It can be found on the back panel of the PS3 on the serial number label, and it will begin with CECH. Example - Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXX-CECHXXX -

Put your PS3 in Standby Mode.

For models: CECHA01, BO1, E01, E01MG, G01, H01, H01MG, K01, LO1, AND P01, it will have a power switch on the back. Flip it off then back on and you will have a solid red indicator light on the front.

For models: CECH-2001A and 2001B, press the power button on the front until the indicator light turns red. If all else fails unplug the power cord and plug it back in.

Time to enter Safe Mode.

Press and hold your finger over the power button on the front until you hear three beeps and the indicator light goes back to red. Then release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds the third and final beep will sound then the indicator light will return to red.)

Press and hold your finger over the power button again until you hear a quick double beep. The release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds you will hear the double beep.)

Connect controller to PS3 screen.

Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the front of your PS3 and the top of your game controller, (between the left and right bumpers). Then Press the PS button in the center of the controller.

Safe Mode options screen.

Select option number 3, (Restore File System). Then select yes to perform step.

"The hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored."

First press the PS button to turn the controller back on. Then press the x button and it will restore, it will then restart and your problem is fixed!

Top multimedia features are on the console of PS3 and it is also connected with PlayStation Portable. While having all the high features, PS3 is not protected from occasional freezes and one knows that. It is the most irritating time when one is enjoying the best of the gaming time when everything suddenly comes to a halt. It is rare that PS3 will freeze but they do occur sometimes and are caused by scratched console disk or overheating.

1. Overheating: When the console is kept in a stuffed room where there is not ample breathing space, then it will get overheated and too much heat on the PS3 will cause a meltdown. It can easily be remedied when the console is placed all by itself and no other electronic machine is nearby.

2. Scratches: Scratches on the disk that can cause looping inside and this usually happens at millisecond speed. The console is not actually frozen in this case. Its the time lag that gets continuously repeated at certain times. The freezing of PS3 is generally not too serious. In case of worst freezing, the console has to be taken to the Sony store from where it was brought. The fact is that the owner can only do some basic trouble-shooting for fixing the problem.

If a PS3 freezes, it has to be kept away from other electronic machines at home. Its power button has to be pushed until a beep is heard. The loose cables have to be checked and they can be pulled and plugged back in. The hard drive has to be aired out for a while and placed back in the console after a considerable time.

If this does not help then the repair guide can be consulted to try fixing the PlayStation 3. It is completely detailed and illustrated.

Briefly, this is how it is done:
- The console has to be taken apart carefully
- The CPU and GPU of the console have to be checked. A white can be seen that may be cracked and unevenly spread, it will need a cleaning.
- The console's GPU and CPU has to be cleaned using a dry paper, if a sand paper is to be used then an extremely rough one should not be used.
- The flat surface has to be cleaned and if still there is a need, Arctic Silver 5 Compound can be purchased and used. It has to be applied evenly and thinly on both surfaces.
- The surface which distributed thinly makes sure that every single gap is covered.
- The heat sink cap can be finally put back on.

Cant host a online game in SVR2010 on ps3 i can join but not host

check to see what your upload and download connection speeds are on the network setup on the ps3 settings if it is low then your internet may not be up to speed if it is wireless try and set up the ps3 closer to the signal and if wired then make sure that you are not using too long of a ethernet cord, that or check to make sure you firewall isnt blocking anything that may be messing with your ping.

I bought an on old madden and couldnt redeem the code. what do i do to get the code so i can play online franchise with friends?

It depends on what year the game is but for most after the copy right expires so do the codes. I've been able to delete saved data utility (not saved game) and diconnect to the playstation network and put in the codes and it worked. Once you've put in the codes reconnect your self to playstation network with your redeemed codes.
