take the Ps2 gaming console to nearest Sony service center the problem is with lens it sometimes run quiet well but sometimes got hang you can do one little thing & try it take any of the Ps2 games which are getting freeze while playing take Colgate toothpaste the regular one take a little bit of it & apply on the game disc rub it on the disc & then clean & wipe out with a clean smooth cloth & clean properly after cleaning the disc will look good neat in condition but please make sure no particle is left after cleaning & now play the disc on Ps2 & see if it still get freeze then their is a problem with console better check it at nearest Sony service center for trouble free working
This behavior is usually caused by overheating. To troubleshoot it, first, try another less graphic intensive game. Little Big Planet is one example. If it still freezes, make sure that your PS3 is situated in a well-ventilated area and remove any cover on it. Try making your PS3 rest a bit then try it again.
The drive is damaged and needs to be replaced. YOu can get a replacement on ebay fairly cheap.
If you want a ps3 then that is up to you, but they also have their fair share of problems, and are not nearly as friendly to service.
could be your disk, there are cd shops and eletronic stores that can scrape a little bit of the plastic casing on the bottom of the cd making it playable but this can only be done once/twice, any more than that it may scratch some data off

their are 3 solutions but i cant asure that it will work
1. maybe when they play ds games like pac n roll the ds cardejects for some reason so sulution 1 is put tape ontop of the ds gamecard slot while their playin a ds game
2 maybe when they play a gba game the game pak is being hit by their chests or bellies so the card is moving a bit and the game freezes so put a big distance between the ds and the chest or belly
3. dont wiggle the ds alot and do you drop it often because if it is dropt often the ds will freeze often
Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps
