Question about Bethesda Softworks Fallout 3 for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Freezes randomly constantly

Im on my second copy of fallout 3, brand new. I have loaded game to hard drive, cleared my cache, and every combination of these that I can think of, yet I can not play for more than 5 minutes without the game freezing or a screen coming up that says cant read disc. Im a computer savvy guy generally, and this has me at wits end!

Xbox360 fallout 3 freezes when I try to leave sub basement.. water purity quest


Fallout 3 has an issue with loading data from the hard drive(as does several other games). It causes the game to freeze more often than most games. Playing the game from the disk, rather than the hard drive should fix the problem. Feel free to continue to play it from the hard drive once the issue has cleared up.

In Fallout 3 on the 360, my game freezes in one spot.


Have you tried a different copy of the game. Like go to the movie store and rent one for test. If it still does it then it sounds like the the laser may be going out. I doubt that this would be the case. I feel that it is more the disk than the laser.

Fallout 3 Freezing Problems???


Fallout 3 freezing is an unfortunately common problem. A lot of people have reported that clearing the game cache on your 360 will fix it, so that's what I would suggest you try first.

To do this:
  1. start up your 360, then take out the Fallout 3 game disc.
  2. Hold down the A button on the Player 1 controller
  3. Put Fallout 3 in your 360, then load the game
If this doesn't fix it, the next thing you could try is to clear the system cache. This will clear the entire cache for your 360, including the automatic updates (though downloaded content, save files, and user dats will be untouched).

To do this:
  1. Navigate to System > Memory
  2. Highlight the hard disk in the list and press Y
  3. Press X, X, LB, RB, X, X
If done right, you should see a message asking, "perform system maintenance?" Proceed with this, and it will clear all the cache data out and revert Fallout 3 back to version 1.0 (it should ask you to update once you load the game)

Hope this helps - I've had my share of frustration with Fallout 3 glitches.

Try saving your profile and game to a memory card, clean out your cache and put the game info back on your drive. Is your hard drive too full? Also have you ever had the console fixed? any reading errors on your disk?

Frozen Fallout 3


I would download the game to the hard drive and it freezes a lot because its on open world rgp so it has to load a lot.. But if you download Fall Out 3 to your hard drive it will increase load times and reduce freezing.
