360 Freezes during gameplay

I was playing guitar hero 2 last night when all of a sudden it froze during one song. I thought it must be a problem with the disc but I reloaded the game and the same thing happened again, and again etc. On one occasion after a restart I had three red lights on the console but when I restarted again they were gone. I have since tried some other games and they always freeze during gameplay, never menus. Help!!

Re: 360 Freezes during gameplay

Try to keep the box in a spot where it and the power brick can stay cool.... same thing happened to my first box eventually it got the rings of death like so many other xboxs out there... so if keeping it well aired dont work you need to ring micro soft and have it sent off for repairs before it suffers a system failure

Where to go after buying songs on band hero for ps3

Band Hero Songs for PS3
The title of the latest game in the Hero franchise is a little misleading. Band Hero sounds like a new direction for the franchise, a completely new brand. But other Hero games already include a full band (World Tour, Guitar Hero 5, Metallica). It's a strange title for a game that's basically Guitar Hero 5-2. Band Hero uses the same framework and ideas as GH5, just with less hard rocking and a lot more American Idol.

That's not to say that the entire setlist comes from current pop radio. You still have rock classics like "Bad Reputation" from Joan Jett and '90s hits like "Two Princes" from The Spin Doctors. But the special appearances in this game are decidedly more modern, with Taylor Swift and Adam Levine instead of Johnny Cash and Carlos Santana. The stages, clothes, and characters are more pop-infused as well, but I've never found the backgrounds and characters themselves to be the focus of these types of music games. Unless you're watching someone else play, the most important part of a music game is its playability.

Click the image above to check out all Band Hero screens.

Gameplay-wise, everything in Band Hero is the same as in GH5. You can still immediately jump into any song that's playing on the start screen. Every track is available in Quickplay without any codes or tedious unlocking. You can play a song with any mix of instruments you want. (Four lead guitars? No problem!) The career progression is a quick trip through increasingly more difficult songs without any repeats. Band Hero even includes all the same, varied multiplayer options from GH5. It's the same framework, so everything that GH5 did well, Band Hero also does excellently.

But that also means Band Hero contains the same niggling problems as GH5. The vocals are a little too hard to gauge pitch on. And, as a Hero game, even the lower difficulties are a little too punishing, which stands out even more in an increasingly casual-oriented franchise like this. I have friends who were frustrated by Band Hero's Medium setting, but who can competently play through Rock Band's games on Hard. It's not really a problem, but Band Hero also has 20 fewer songs on its tracklist (65 versus GH5's 85).

Guitar hero song skips then freezes on perfect disk

The freeze ups normally happen before the red lights of doom and they are caused by the GPU and the CPU getting too hot and the soldering snaps off so they lose connection.

If you stop the heat build up you will be fine.

You can do this yourself using a good repair guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

My XBox 360 freezes

Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

My PS2 Slimline goes black or freezes or skips during gameplay.

No you prolly dont have a warranty at all. I dont on my refurbished disk. As far as the game not playing it has to do something with the Cd. Alot of times the people that sell the disk send it through a certain kind of scanner and it erases or screws up the CD somehow. U might wanna take it back and get it replaced if its not to late.

Maybe your Xbox 360 console is overheating. Try turning the console off and waiting for a day or two, then turn the console back on and try again.

Can't load guitar hero III

This happened with my old 360 and GoW. Microsoft insisted it was the disc, but it wasn't. I ended up purposely giving it the 3 Red Rings so I could send the 360 of for repair. It worked fine when I received the console back from repair.
