PS3 freezes when playing BF3 (well thats the only thing i do on my PS3 :P )
its so annoying! its friday, school is over, so i hop on BF3, having some fun and about 1 hour later FRRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEZE!
i have a usb fan that sits under the PS3 so it doesnt overheat (which is unlikely anyway)
but 1 HOUR! WTF!
the old hard drive died so i gave it a new one and now it still hates me, what does it want from me?
its like my fucking cat and just wants more and more
how do i fix it?

all suggestions are welcome

Hey man, so i had a similar issue to freezing.. could your problem be aused by overheating the PS3? .. i used to have my PS3 inside a tv table and its cooling system wouldn't get cool enough so it would overheat and freeze. I moved it onto and now i rarely have freezing issues even when playing BF3 for hours.

if its an old fatty u can always try holding the eject button until the fans come on and do the 'auto-clean' to remove the dust. that might help with the freezing..

That's what BF3 does, there's nothing we can do about it. Just gotta hope that BF4 is different.

I hate my Playstation! I was watching a movie on it last night and it randomly exited it 4 times. And now I'm trying to play Far Cry 3 and it freezes as soon as I start to play. Stupid piece of shit.

Could be your optical drive. Try playing games/movies off the HDD for long periods and seeing if they freeze too.

PlayTV and the PS3 are having fights again , they mask it by playing loud music but i think a divorce might be imminent .

Never had so many lock ups.

I played the Injustice demo for about 30min and it ran fine and I played Far Cry 3(On Disc) for nearly an hour before it froze but every time I try go into map editor it freezes after 3 seconds. Everytime I go into map editor and try open one of my maps, even if I have just turned on the ps3 or if it has been running for 1 hour.. I can make a new map and it will run normally but if I want to go back into it it will freeze straight away. I really don't want to have to delete them because I spent a lot of time making them.

Is this for syncing trophies? If so turn auto sign in off then sign in after your in bf3

some games like BF3 do it wether you are signed in or not I'm pretty sure. I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I've always had it do it even when I'm not signed in.

I'm assuming Rob is correct here and it's not BF3 that's loading but rather your trophies being synced (it should say so on the screen) since I cant think of any loading bars with a percentage in BF3.

You can manually sync your trophies from the XMB without even launching BF3 by going to trophies in the XMB, pressing :triangle:, and then selecting the option that lets you manually sync them.

I had dramas with my ps3 slim aswell. It was roughly 4 years old and I could play for about an hour and then it froze, had to restart, and then it would just happen again.
I tried ripping it apart and using compressed air to blow the dust out, but still had the same problem.
Regardless of breathing room etc, I think after a while the thermal paste and components have just had enough, once they're damaged that's it. :(

I need to get my Alienware mx14 re pasted, without a cooling pad CPU/GPU run at a nice 90deg + lol. Stable 60 with a cooling pad but thermal paste starts to degrade after about 55-60 degrees. (Depending on brand etc)

Hope I've shed some light on the subject :)
