Unfortunetly unless you were to find the game in the PSN store then you could play it without freezing but since PS3 doesnt support memory cards you won't be able to do that. Its really too bad I know how you feel when you data ends up useless because of a glitchy old game :C

My ps3 keeps freezing during games


Problem: Your Playstation 3 console is freezing during gameplay. There are usually two problems that would cause your Playstation 3 to freeze during

gameplay. I will start with the most common problem:

1. The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

2. Overheating. This is less common. If your PS3 freezes and you shut it off and back on and it comes on ok, it's probably not overheating. If heat is the problem, it will freeze right away if you turn it back on right away without giving it time to cool off. If it turns on OK with no problem and doesn't immediately freeze up, the laser is your issue. If you turn it back on and it freezes right away, your PS3 may be overheating.

If your PS3 is overheating, the best thing to do is to make sure you do not keep it in an enclosed area. Playstation 3 systems and XBox 360 systems run very hot. You must keep it in the open so it gets as much cool air as possible! You can also upgrade the fan inside of your Playstation 3 with the Whisper Fan which increases cooling. You can also find it at the following website:

My game keeps freezing up, what is the problem and can it be fixed?


Hi. There are many possibilities why PS3 keeps freezing up to a certain point of time. First is, this could be a game disc issue. Ifthis happened to a certain game disc only then probably you might have a purchased a bad game disc. Second is, lens problem. might be the lens is getting hard time reading the disc and needs replacement.

I have a playstation 1 game that i play on my 3,


Yes, GameStop and EB games both sell an adaptor you can buy, I believe it's around $20 that allows you to save and copy your data from the PS3. I have Gran Turismo 3 and I had just about everything in it on my PS2; I thought I had to start all over when I got my PS3 but I got one of these adapters and it worked wonders. Same applies for PS1 games.

Good luck and if I've helped you please give me a good rating.

Respectfully,

Don

In both story lines it will play to a certain point and freeze. Music keeps playing and characters eyes still move but the game doesn't progress, how do I fix this to enjoy the rest of the game?


you might try dusting the lens of the laser. and if you spit on the disc repeatedly and clean it off with a fog cloth it should work better.

PS3 Freezes when it loads certain games


The same thing hapeend to me with Infamous and Killzone 2. It wouldnt happen with MGS4. I replaced the optical lense and the harddrive on the ps3 and it did nothing. I even had a strong fan blowing air into it. Nothing worked. I took an L and sent it to Sony. But thankfully i got the money from gambling craps in Vegas so im not upset about it.

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.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.
