Our PS3 was freezing all the time so we hadn't played in months.Installed new hard drive. Reformatted it. It played for about 5 or 10 minutes, then froze again. Turned it off. Started it again: The light...


the ps3 has a tendency to overheat in enclosed spaces. put it in an open area, and run a small fan on it. there are usb fans that you can plug into the console to help circulate air around the system.

good luck

My PS3 freezes when i play Fifa 09 Manager mode


try looking for updates and patches for the game, else, reinstall all your fifa 09 files.

if this doesn't work, verify it there are any problems with your disk (dust, for example),

is the problem continues, restore your ps3 system . (or first re-update the system by downloading the latest update in Playstation Site)

EA Sports Games and the 360


Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps

PS3 Freezing Mid - Game


Madden 09 itself has a lot of issues. EA is supposed to come up with a patch to fix the freezing issue for Madden 09.
There are a lot of unhappy madden 09 owners outh there.

As far as freezing on any game that sounds like a bluray diode issue or overheating issues.
keep the console in a well vented are (maybe even add a small portable fan from walmart that can help cool down your system.
