Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

PS3 Freezes when it loads certain games

When I play inFamous or R6V2 the PS3 freezes. For inFamous it freezes at random points in the game. In fact I haven't even made it through the tutorial yet. For R6V2 it freezes whenever I need to reloan a checkpoint. I tried deleing the saved files for each game but the problem keeps occuring. I even deleted a bunch of old save files and demos, but no luck. There are no scratches on the disks. Also the PS3 did play a regular DVD but I have not tried a Blu Ray. Could the HDD be corrupt?

The same thing hapeend to me with Infamous and Killzone 2. It wouldnt happen with MGS4. I replaced the optical lense and the harddrive on the ps3 and it did nothing. I even had a strong fan blowing air into it. Nothing worked. I took an L and sent it to Sony. But thankfully i got the money from gambling craps in Vegas so im not upset about it.

I have a ps3 60 gig , ibought grand theft auto 4 and at random it freezes up on me i have 16 ps3 titles and have never had issues

Apparently from what i've heard it's not only the PS3 but the XBOX 360 has the same issue. Also from what I here is it's the games fault not the systems. Apparently Rockstar designed the game not to have any load times in the game. By doing this they have overloaded the cache in the system. At a certain point while playing it will max out the cache while trying to load the next part of the game (textures,sounds,maps,etc). So I guess they'll have to release as patch or something to stop it from overloading the cache. Sorry, but at least your not alone. Hope this helps. M~
