Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Game Saints Row 2 keeps freezing at certain points in the game

After I reset it this last time, it keeps saying at the main screen open tray, so I open the tray and close it and it just repeats the same thing over and over again. PS3. worked fine first two days. next day it freezes every time I try manually save or load, also stopped auto-saving. tried starting a fresh game, same thing. after checking online definetely seems like it's the game and not the system. alot of freezing issues for this game and they are not all the same kind of freezing (when they freeze).

    ok, so I saw this solution posted elsewhere and it works for me.



    like I said above my freezing only came when trying to manually save or load. but at first the game worked fine, then the other day this poblem came from nowhere. I think the game updated and the update caused my perticular issue.



    so the fix is easy, but means disabling the internet connection before playing, and deleting the online profile. I am waiting for them to patch this latest problem before connecting online with saints.

    I should point out that this was a carry over from another message that I somehow included in my post, I did not have this problem.

Maybe you should try different games? see if those different games freeze, if so, then it might be your blu-ray player in your ps3, or your ps3 might be overheating. my games froze at certain points because my ps3 was overheating, just try a few different games

Why won't my xbox read the game?


IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

My xbox keeps saying unreadable disk when i put in saints row 2


Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on.
Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it.
And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive.
If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.

READING DISC OPEN TRAY!!!!


I took a small coffee straw and put some liquid silicone in it and stuck it through the front disc tray carefully to the small engine in the back. Hold your finger over the back of the straw so that the liquid stays in until you are over the engine top.Then I put in a disc cleaning disc for about 10 sec and then put in saints row 2 and it hasn't said "open tray" for about two weeks and counting.....

It seems like a 360 problem, exchange for another one, maybe it could be a disc problem though. If a game is REALLLY damaged it can cause the same problems
