Has anyone ever had any very short freezing problems with their X-Box 360?

I'v ebeen playing BioShock a lot lately. However, the last two times I've played it - today - it is suddenly freezing for about a second at a time. It happens quite often...at least twice every 5 minutes or so.

At first I thought maybe it was data loading because of changes in the game - the audio files you come across, or mass amount of enemies, that sort of stuff.

But it's happening now when I just walk down regular corridors with nothing happening.

It's not freezing the whole system or making me have to turn everything off, but it's pretty damn annoying to say the least.

So could it just be some kind of glitch in the game?

It could be but a while ago that happened to me and turned out to be a bad disk drive.

I've actually noticed a slight pause during several Halo 3 sessions.

have you replaced the thermal grease on the cpu and gpu??? Doing that would void the warranty though..........

Yeah, I noticed that a few times too for about the first hour I was playing but thankfully it hasn't done anything since then.

I also have frequent freezes playing Bioshock. It doesn't totally ruin the game, but it does bring down the game experience. Hard to get to immersed in the game world when it keeps glitching.

It's a small glitch in the game. It's in the review.

Yeah, I just got Halo 3 last night and within minutes of playing I noticed that little freezing problem, stinks.
