Question about Bethesda Softworks Fallout 3 for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Freezing i would have hated to think there was a problem with my ps3 but now im reading about similar issues you are all having. however my game lags as well and freezes for about five to ten seconds then continues to play. i have to save frequently in case i accomplish a whole lot then loose it all when it decides to freeze. last night it completely went hinky and everything around me went gray as if the game was unfinished or something but my character was fine. of course this happened when i was fighting off a molerat. the disc seems fine to me tho i got it used. is it just too much content for the disc?...

Two possible reasons this could be happening. 
1. Bad or going bad laser
2. firmware needs updated.

solution for:
1. replace the laser or dust it out. Don't use a air duster as this might sitr up or lodge new dust in the eye. The best way to dust the laser is to open the dvd drive and use a very soft brush. Idealy a keyboard duster. Or once you have the drive open then you can use air.

2. go to the system settings option on the dashboard and update the firmware.

I can play offline but evertime im playing and hit the ps button my ps3 freezes and i have to turn it off and back on. if im already signed in to psn and try and load a game while signed in it freezes

it sounds like your internet connection is lagging very badly if it freezes on hitting the home button if you can try to move your ps3 closer to your network wireless router.

Do I have a disc reading issue?

try to clea the Disk that you are using then try also to insert other disk that is working to check if the problem is the disk itself. Only then if the result is the same then the problem would be either the Player hardware or the Support software maybe its corructed or not compatible to the disk you want to insert. Then if the hardware has a problem contact the PS3 repairshop in your place. But if the support software has the problem then you can update it or reinstall your software support in your PS3.
Hope it helps your problem.  If you need more assistance just conatc me or reply to this post.  Thanks you

Plays game but freezes on the cinematics

Corrupt game data.

You need to backup your saves and then restore the PS3 to factory default.

I'm assuming you know how to do this or can figure it out yourself. You sound like a capable gamer.

Let me know if you get stuck or have any other questions.

Play station 2 disc read error

sony jst ripped us off with ps2. u know, always making something not perfect so they could sell a better product, does ps3 sound familiar. im sure something will be similar to ps3, then ps4 comes out, so on and so forth. mostly, i cant play rockstar games in my ps2, the video and audio doesnt match, then it jst freezes on loading scenes. jeeze.

My ps3 freezes

First of all call sony 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
ask them what they think it is, if they wont tell you they will want 168$ to fix it...(on avg)
I have fixed over 25 ps3's and its a first time I have heard of this... If you want a ps3 I can get you a good deal on a system I might have a gently used 40 gb ps3 on had (not refurb)

If you want to sell the system let me know I do buy broken ps3's but this one sounds like a new issue I have not dealt with yet which makes it better!
