Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I have had a PS3 for 8 months and MLB 10 the Show for 3 months. I only play franchise mode. Going into year 3 it freezes when I hit square to manage roster. This is the screen where it gives me position breakdowns and number of players at each position for each level. Even when I tried to sim thru the offseason which I didn't want to do it freezes completely. I have shut off the system four times and it still does it. This completely stops me from proceeding to the next season in my franchise in the game. I only want to play franchise mode and I don't want to start a new franchise to have it freeze again there. It is the whole reason I play sports games. It is also the only game I play. I have no problems watching blu-ray or any other problems I can see. I have maybe 15 movie files saved from the show ... is it lack of memory?? ... the game was a little dirty so I carefull wiped it and it looks clean. It still freezes. ...Please help.

The problem is not related to memory. My guess is the PS3 is over heating. Reasons include
1)You have placed it in a closed place(tv cabinet etc.,). If yes then move it to a location that is open and has no enclosures.
2)Your heat sink compound is dried up. A common fault in PS3s. If the unit is under warranty sony should fix it for you free of cost.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.

Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

When I first started the game I think remember downloading a update. But I think it was a roster update. How do you download the up date?

This is a three man franchise league. When we got to week 17 of the first season and played our games, that was the last time the franchise would save. After reaching the playoffs playing my game the franchise would not save at all. It would freeze up. Then if you try to simulate the playoffs. It would freeze up. After playing with it we were able to get to the end, but when advancing to the off-season it would freeze up. Finally, figured out when we got to pro bowl to save it and it worked no freeze-ups. We were able to advance to the off season after that, did all off-season stuff and got to the preseason. Now when trying to simulate preseason it will freeze up. What the heck.
