Problem with PS3 Freezing in Gameplay


Active Member
Hi, I bought my son a PS3 a couple of weeks ago. Everything seemd fine apart from freezing in one of the games he got with it - Motorstorm.

The game will load fine but just totally freezes a few minutes into the game.
As other games were fine we sent Motorstorm back for replacement but the new copy does exactly the same.

And Spiderman 3 which he just bought does the same too.

But games like Formula 1 and Vitua Tennis work perfectly all day long, Blu Ray and DVDs whether our own or Blockbuster rentals play perfectly.

In short everything works perfectly except these two games.

Could there be something about these games that's using a part of the PS2 that's faulty? Any other ideas?

I would get the machine replaced. The fact that you have tried more then one copy of the game with the same results and now it's happenning with another game it's more likely to be the console at fault.

Had console replaced and all seems OK now.



That's good to hear. Hopefully you won't have any more problems. :smashin:
