Question about Sony Video Game Consoles & Games
This is a common problem on the PS 3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service. However - if you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.
The freezing during loading and saving are the early syptoms of this problem. It inevitably progresses until the unit will not load any games or play blueray at all.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks
