I have had a lot of problems with my ps3 freezing. The games were scratchless. They are CoD3, Enchanted Arms, Spiderman 3, and Rainbow Six Vegas (during online for that one). Are these games common to have freezing issues? Also, I bought them from Gamestop new, except CoD3, I bought it used. I'd hate to have to get a new ps3 considering how reliable they are, plus I don't want to lose my saved games for my 15+ games. Another problem I've had is when I turn on my ps3 the wireless internet gets knocked off and I have to reset it every time for it to work on my ps3 and pc at the same time, which gets annoying, not sure if that is the router or not, it is a Linksys Wireless Router. Thanks!!!!

I'd suggest you call up Sony and have it replaced. Its free of charge and you receive a new one within a week. If you wasn to keep your saved games and demos and stuff, the PS3 has a backup utility which backs up all of your things to another storage device.

CoD3 is meant to be freeze from time to time

that game is the most bug-contented POS ever

for other games you have, I'm not sure

If things are freezing on on-line games chances are it is the router or your internet provider. This causes about 99% of the problems of on-line gaming if the speeds are not up to where they should then it will cause the problem of freezing. Sometimes there could be some settings that will need to be changed with the router that helps a lot.

Mine never froze. Never will either, cause it recognizes greatness.

I just keep my PS3 in my little refrigerator that I have in my room while I am playing and that seems to solve all overheating concerns.

Mine freezes about every other day now especially on the internet. It is kept pretty cool and according to the sauna-ps3 experiment this shouldn't affect it. Is it because of dust because i haven't got a hoover weak enough to clean the inside. help?

you also gotta pay another 150 for the new one which is ridiculous meanwhile its sonys own fault
