PS3 freezing during multiple games

Same problem with multiple games I play:  around 20-30 minutes into a game, it will be working fine, then parts of the sound will cut off.  
Example: playing FIFA, the announcers will stop giving play by play, but you'll still hear the ambient noises of the crowd, kicking the ball, etc.  Or in guitar hero, I won't hear the notes of the song I'm playing, just the background of the track.  
Then, when I try to hit start to go to a menu (or when the half ends in FIFA, or a song ends in GH), it won't load and I'll have to shut off the ps3.  Once the sounds freeze this way, nothing at all will load.  Has happened the same way the last 4 or 5 times I've tried to play something on the ps3.

Check the vents on you ps3. If those are blocked or even too close to a wall or something like that, the game will freeze.

Our playstation 3 won't read games but will play regular DVD's and CD's


I have the same problem. My games freeze after 5 minutes. Same with blue rays but dvds play fine. I have reformatted the hard drive and formatted the file system. Nothing has worked. Hearing through multiple sources the blue ray laser is going out or the latest firmware update could be causing this. Hard to know for sure ... major disappoint. I have the 80 gig. 2 years old just starting doing this three days ago. Any other suggestions?

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.
