I have had a 60Gig since 02/08 and it never froze on me while playing COD4 until I downloaded the most recent system update. Now if will freeze on me at least 2-3 times in a night. Sony needs to get their **** together. I've already given them enough money for the PS2,PSP and PS3 not to mention all the games. I think they should at least throw us a bone once in a while. Offer something...free cleanings or maybe that PS3 repair guide.....something.

5 minutes later thet i start playing the screen freezes but the audio keeps playing

The freezing is from the firmware 3.10 update and sony won't fix the update they said to ship it to them and the will fix it for $149.00. i beleive this update was designed to do just that so consumers would spend the money to fix it or to buy a new ps3 slim

I purchased the ps3 repair guide from ps3repairs.com. It did not solve my problem and I have been emailing them for about two weeks so that they can honor their refund policy. They have yet to respond.
