Sadly Sony released 2 updates lately that screwed alot of PS3's up.

People who updated to 3.00 / 3.01 and have an older ps3 will probaly sit with this problems right now, you arent the only one, but one out of 1000's that got this issue, im also in the same boat, and i tried to clean it with no luck, so the only thing you can do is to wait untill sony release a fix, or replace your faulty Bluray unit with a new. its not a good fix, but what i know it should work, but i also heard rumos from people with this problem who replaced their BluRay unit and ended up with the same problem after they rebooted their system again.

so eather wait, or call sony to have them replace it, but thats not free, or it can be in some cases. i wrote sony friday and havnt recieved any awnsers yet, so now im just waiting on an awnser, or an update.

i hope this could help you, i know its not a fix nor a final solution. but atleast you know now its not your hardware thats faulty but the firmware :)

regards
Nemi

The problem is with the EA servers. Try to get a copy of Army of Two (the fist one), accept the terms for online, and then you'll be able to play NFS and Mercenaries.

Since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot


Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge


or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..
