    Thanks, but it's not under warranty..it's a 60gb and they don't even make them anymore (bought it used for that reason, wanted the backwards compatibility to be able to play ps2 games on it) guess I will have to pay the $169 to send it back to sony (no receipt either) hope that works at least. Thanks again though...

This is sounding like a faulty Video Card - The game is running smoothly but the video has frozen it is unfortunate that you have encountered this as it is a particually rare problem with the PS3 - However if you contact Sony support and are still under warranty they will replace it for you - I hope this was of some help to you and hope you have better luck in the future,

Regards,

My ps3 will play for about 20 min then it freezes up. First the in game voices stop and then I get a frozen pic.


This behavior is usually caused by overheating. To troubleshoot it, first, try another less graphic intensive game. Little Big Planet is one example. If it still freezes, make sure that your PS3 is situated in a well-ventilated area and remove any cover on it. Try making your PS3 rest a bit then try it again.

Bought final fantasy XIII for my ps3 and the game keeps freezing


It might be something wrong with the system. You should get that checked out. If it's not the system, i'm sorry, but you're just a very unfortunate person.

Fifa 10 keeps freezing normally this is at the start when loading. Any ideas please ?


First make sure no other games are freezing. If other games freeze also, then the problem is not with Fifa 10. If your other games are fine, you will need to replace Fifa by either an exchange or, if stores won't do that for you, you'll have to sell and purchase a new game.

Game starts but then freezes


It's the blu-ray drive. This is the number one problem with the PS3.

You can check out some of my earlier posts on how to fix it. I'm no longer allowed to provide direct links to my PS3 blog repair site.

If you can find it I give detailed instructions and tips on how to fix it.

Best of luck!

Game Freezing


Make sure the console is out in the open. It needs to vent. Don't place it in a confined area. Make sure any vents on the console itself are not blocked or covered with dust. Sounds like it is overheating.
