My PS3 keeps freezing up... It will start the game and play for about 5 minutes then freeze up in mid game. You can still click the PS button and quit the game but when you try to load the game back up it says error then a few numbers and wont play any of my games... Please help me. Would it help any to reformat the hard drive and completely wipe it and start over or is it a laser problem.
