During game play the game will freeze, and thin red lines will appear horizontal across the entire screen? Please help


This could be a problem with either the actual game, or the console itself. To check, try to play other games on your video game console, if the games freeze, then it is a problem with the console. If it is only the one game freezing, then it is most likely a problem with that specific game.

160gb ps3 won't play games or bluray discs


Your PS3 may not be freezing entirely. Look in the top right hand corner of the screen, if the loading sphere is there you've nothing to worry about, and I would reccomend just waiting it out (it unfreezes). If it is not there it is a legitimate freeze and would reccomend sending it off and/or updating the system firmware.

EA Sports Games and the 360


Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps

Xbox 360 freezing


There are two possible solutions to this issue. One the data that you downloaded either got corrupted during transfer somehow or during a resent save. You should delete all the iformation off your hard drive and start fresh. If this doesnt work try takeing off your hard drive and playing a game if it deosnt freeze you will need to either try the delete method or get a new HD.

If this doesnt solve your issue then it is very possible that your system is headed for the red rings of death. My system was fried after i had played assasins creed. It would freeze up and create this checker pattern on my back ground my system shortly after went red ring.

Game freeze


Try playing the game without your HD hooked up if the game still freezes this is a known problem and will need to be replaced. Mine started to do this just shortly after i played assasins creed and about a week after i got the dreaded red ring of death. If your system doesnt freeze after you play it without your HD in then you should be fine just delete all the saved files off your HD and start fresh.
