You might possibly have to much memory on it. Or of course, it COULD have just gotten the Sony version of the 360's red ring of death. This will sound really simple, but you probably should call Sony's support and see what they say. Also check in the disc slot to make sure nothing is blocking the disc. You could get a cheap fan to stay on while you're playing b/c many times game consoles just wear out. My best guess would be that their is something where it souldn't be. You might also try playing with a different controller. Game systems can be really unpredictable b/c they require so much human interaction that they aren't always ready for.

Why is my new game saintsrow the third keep frezzing and the sound keeps going in and out


Just like anything else that is mass produced there are sometimes defective parts. The disc that it was made from could have a defect in it.
I would suggest taking the game back to the store and exchanging it for another.
Most stores will let you exchange with a receipt.
And don't worry about your saved game data it will still be there!

Plays game but freezes on the cinematics


Corrupt game data.

You need to backup your saves and then restore the PS3 to factory default.

I'm assuming you know how to do this or can figure it out yourself. You sound like a capable gamer.

Let me know if you get stuck or have any other questions.

My ps3 is freezing


Hey.

I might sound like a stupid solution, but if the PS3 is in a dusty area it sometimes freezes.. Try to vacume clean it.. Also, is your fan on and does it sound ok. It might freeze due to overheating. If it only freezes when you play games on a disc, it might be a problem with the laser reader, which could also be due to dust.

Hope some of it helped.

My XBox 360 freezes


Here are things to try.

1. Try another game and check if it only happens on this game ( MLB 2k9 )

2. Select memory -> Select Y button for device options then press the following sequence on your controller

X,X Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X

You will see a message that goes like this " This will perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage device, would you like to continue? Select Yes

3. Delete your save game. or try to start a new game..

Because this is an indication that the certain point that you are trying to load is already corrupted and its your saved game.

My ps3 freezes


First of all call sony 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
ask them what they think it is, if they wont tell you they will want 168$ to fix it...(on avg)
I have fixed over 25 ps3's and its a first time I have heard of this... If you want a ps3 I can get you a good deal on a system I might have a gently used 40 gb ps3 on had (not refurb)

If you want to sell the system let me know I do buy broken ps3's but this one sounds like a new issue I have not dealt with yet which makes it better!
