Question about EA - Electronic Arts Half Life 2 The Orange Box for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Game freezes at 17%

On my PS3, the game "The Orange Box" freezes when it tries to install game data. When I try to quit the game, it beeps three times, then restarts. If I try to shut it down, it freezes with no sound or video.

    Yes, it is.

    I also looked at my memory left, and I have enough to house the requirements.

    I think I found the problem.
    There was a fingerprint on the reading side of the disc, and I am testing to see if hat is the problem.


  • n_alspaugh Jan 04, 2009

    That was the problem.
    I ran it again, and it's solved.

    Is it a PS3 game? PS3 is not backward compatible for PS1 or PS2 games.

If the disk isn't damaged, take it back and get it replaced. (The Game) It has an error on it.

This is a common problem it is most likely a scratch but you may want to try wiping the disc down with a piece of cloth, or it could just be some corrupted data on the disc so you may just need to buy a new one

My nba live 2010 skips n freezes both my console n the game are brand new


I have the same issue, i thought it was just the original disc, so i took it back, got it replaced, but even the new disc does it. I erased all NBA LIVE 2010 data off my hard drive as i thought it might be a corrupted save or something, but even on new saves it still does it. It will skip for about 30 seconds, then just freeze, except the crown audio keeps playing.

Fifa 09 football problem. telling me to clean disc as it is unreadable i am cleaning the disc and restarting the console but it keeps telling me to clean the disc.


One common problem that video game players have all the time are scratched discs. A helpful way around buying a brand new game or a disc scratch remover, is to first:
a.) Borrow the same version of the game from a friend
OR
b.) Rent the same version of the game from a store
Now, take the unscratched disc, and install it to your hard drive.
And lastly, now you can put in the scratched disc and go to "Game Library", choose the game, and select "Play from Hard drive."
The reason this trick works, is because when you play your disc from the hard drive, it uses minimal memory from the disc itself.
NOTE: Installing a disc to your hard drive does NOT replace having to put in the game to play it.
You still need a copy of the game in order to run it from your hard drive. I believe this is some security feature so people don't go around copying the games and not buying them.
Also, I would NOT install the scratched disc to your hard drive, for this will not help your problem at all.

Why does my new game freeze at the start menu on ps3?


It's freezing as it tries to connect to the EA servers.
If you want to play single player, sign out of the PSN before starting the game. If you want to play multi-player, at the moment it seems you can't, join the club :(
Quite a few people are having problems, not just on the PS3 http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/330817.page

Download the demo of army of two accept ea's terms and conditions start game quit put mercs 2 back in and it should have sorted it but if not you need to borrow rent or buy the full game to get your problem fixed. This is the same problem as the freezing on the main menu.

I don't know if the disks have a flaw but if you tried two brand new games both with freezes is sounds like it's your 360.
