    What the hell just happened

    Ok I've never had this before and this was really weird.
    I was playing BF3 and at the end of the match my screen was all black and nothing happened. I thought it froze on a black loading screen or so, my controller didn't worked and stuff. So I decided to turn it off and it took quite a while to hear the 3 beeps and after that it usually goes off.
    But no, my PS3 kept flashing the green power button and it wouldn't go off. So I just pulled the cabel out. What the hell does this mean? I've never had this before wtf. Is this really bad?

    I don't think you'll have any issues with your PS3 after that. The game just froze and the console couldn't be restarted normally. It happened to me once and I think it was when I was playing BF3.

    I think its something to do with the games beinf ported over to the PS3 format, rather than being designed around the PS3

    That happens to me at times, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just BF3 trolling your PS3, that's all.

    Its an EA game, what do you expect...

    It has happened to me on FIFA and Socom Confrontation before, it should just check your hard drive when you turn it back on then should work as normal

    Funny, same thing happened to my PS3 after a friend brought COD over. Put BF3 back in and it quit freezing up, lol, hmmm...

    No but seriously to the thread starter, sometimes i've had to yank the power cord to, and MAINLY on my slim model. Needless to say, its had to "rebuild the database" several times.

    I've had this a few times over the years. Nothing to worry about really .. Annoying but nothing to worry about.

    Sometimes I've had the file recovery, sometimes not - I think you get that if your game was saving at the same time.

    I don't think it's anything to do with 3rd party games either, I got it with Resistance 3 and it corrupted the installed data at the same time, so...

    Oh no what are the chances of getting corrupted data? That must be worse than a broken PS3!

    You'll only likely get it if your PS3 is accessing the HDD at the same time it crashes. I guess I was lucky, it was only the installed data so all I had to do was delete and reinstall but it could easily have been a save :-/

    I back my important saves up now using PS+ - Nearly lost them when my Phat 60GB died but thanks to the hair dryer fix I got it working long enough to upgrade my account and get them uploaded.

    I always have that problem with Bethesda games. It's just an annoyance, not a cause for alarm.

    With Skyrim, it would often happen on loading screens, thus corrupting the auto save data it was writing. By the time I finished my first mega-playthrough (138 hours), I had about 30 corrupted data blocks on my system. But with how awesome that game is, it was worth putting up with.

    Yeah I don't have PS+ yet, I use a memory stick, all the games I play ATM are not copy-protected expect for BF3.

    Yeah when I played Skryim half a year ago I had most freezes when either travelling or saving manually.
    So now I got Skyrim back I don't save anymore on travel and I'm always afraid it will freeze when saving. But my save file isn't very big yet, but freezes will come soon.
