    same thing trying to return from sub basement into jefferson memorial. i also have a game save inside the memorial, before the enclave arrives, which freezes while trying to load.. so i am basically stuck in the subbasement =(

    clearing the cache DID NOT HELP.

There is no solution yet, I have reported this problem to technical support and they are working on it. You can try this but there is no warranty that it will work. Explore the rest of the wasteland doing other side quests; come back later and complete the area.

Xbox360 fallout 3 freezes when I try to leave sub basement.. water purity quest

Fallout 3 has an issue with loading data from the hard drive(as does several other games). It causes the game to freeze more often than most games. Playing the game from the disk, rather than the hard drive should fix the problem. Feel free to continue to play it from the hard drive once the issue has cleared up.

In Fallout 3 on the 360, my game freezes in one spot.

Have you tried a different copy of the game. Like go to the movie store and rent one for test. If it still does it then it sounds like the the laser may be going out. I doubt that this would be the case. I feel that it is more the disk than the laser.

Fallout 3 Freezing Problems???

Fallout 3 freezing is an unfortunately common problem. A lot of people have reported that clearing the game cache on your 360 will fix it, so that's what I would suggest you try first.

To do this:
  1. start up your 360, then take out the Fallout 3 game disc.
  2. Hold down the A button on the Player 1 controller
  3. Put Fallout 3 in your 360, then load the game
If this doesn't fix it, the next thing you could try is to clear the system cache. This will clear the entire cache for your 360, including the automatic updates (though downloaded content, save files, and user dats will be untouched).

To do this:
  1. Navigate to System > Memory
  2. Highlight the hard disk in the list and press Y
  3. Press X, X, LB, RB, X, X
If done right, you should see a message asking, "perform system maintenance?" Proceed with this, and it will clear all the cache data out and revert Fallout 3 back to version 1.0 (it should ask you to update once you load the game)

Hope this helps - I've had my share of frustration with Fallout 3 glitches.
