    I also play COD4 online and GTA 4, The sound went out and then it froze. I can unplug it for a couple of hours and then play it again for about a half hour and then it freezes again. It won't read any discs. I just sent it back to Sony with a big WTF? I hear this is happening all over the place from a bunch of people... hope they figure out what is going on soon.
