Re: graphics get squarish
Sounds like your GPU is cooked. The Graphics Processing Unit on the PS3 has started tohave issues with overheating. If your PS3 is still under warranty, go to http:www.us.playstation.com and go to the service link. There you will find the info you need to have your unitfixed. I have had to have mine serviced twice. From the day I sent it to them, it was less than ten days when they returned it. Be sure to take screenshots of the graphics problems you are having. If you do not, chances are all they will do is clean the unit, nd add cooling grease to the GPU and cell broadband engine This will help for a few days. But if the GPU is cooked, it will revert to the graphic "glitches" in a few days after service. Heat is the number one enemy of all electronics. Be sure and turn your PS3 off when not in use. Even if it is in "pause" mode, or just on the dashboard it is still causing wear and tear n the unit. Some games will still work fine with a bad GPU. But graphics intense games like Bad Company that run between 60-120fps cause alot of stress on the gpu. Good luck, and Happy Gaming!

alright every one here u go: How to Fix the PS3 freezing thing.
**Note** if ur PS3 under warranty then send it to the nearest Sony servece center and DONT do what im ganna say below okkk
in order to FIX the freezing thing u have to open ur PS3 and u do it like this 1- on the side of ur PS3 where ur Hard Disk location there is a lable above it teling u not to remove that label, the hell with that just remove that lable ok. 2-u will find some kind of a very weird screw u have to use a certen screw driver to remove it so be careful u dont wanna damage it 3- after removeing that screw bring a knife and softly remove the black cover. 4-u will find a lot of screws right there remove them all and remove that metal cover too. 5-after that u will see only 2 mane things -A- the blueray player -B- the processor of the PS3. 6-Remove the processor and bring a HAIR DRAYER and start clean it very well u will see a lot of Dust there. 7- replace the processor back and all the things u've removed earlier 8- while ur PS3 is turned OFF were no ight ON keep ur finger over the EJECT touch butoon dont remove ur finguer ok, now turn ur PS3 from the back ON the PS3 will star makeing a very very loud noise after that u will hear a beep beep and lights off, 9-start ur PS3 normally and ENJOY and THAAAANK ME VERY WELL :DDDDDDDDDDDDD i did that a couple of weeks ago and now my PS3 ROKS have fun guys and by the way THIS SHOULD FIX THE RED LIGHT THING TOO :D
I have never heard of needing to pay any kind of fee to play games on the PS3. Is the fee needed to play the game offline or only to play online with others, because I've only heard of a fee to buy games off of the Playstation store, and that is a one-time payment
as you turn on the ps3 rub the top of the ps3 just above where u put the disk in with your right hand it worked fo me i was supa desperate cause it wasnt my ps3 i thought i broke it but i rubbed it an it was all fixed up an dont turn it off from the back switch ever again.
Seeing how that game just came out, there is probly a few bugs. did you go to system update and make sure you have the newest ps3 firmware? If your other games work fine then im sure your not the only person this is happening to. They will release a patch and when you go to boot up the game it will download and install. Hope they patch it soon for you! ive been waiting months for this game to come out, but i dont have the money to get it right now, Hope They fix it soon!
ok mate go to settings press x and then go to bluetooth device ok then scroll down and press x on the icon labelled register headset ok next turn on your bluetooth device then when ya do sumtin will pop up on the screen and press x on start scanning and once the scan is complete the ps3 will recognize all bluetooth devices within the range hope it helps
