    This kinda sucks

    So I seem to be having a slight issue with my fairly new 320GB PS3 slim. It has frozen a few times already in a few different games, but I am usually able to turn it off no problem.

    Then I put Bioshock 2 in to re-install the game data. It freezes every single time during the install phase in the game. It also will not let me turn the system off by normal means, rather I have to unplug it as nothing else works. It's quite irritating since my game is 100% functional/clean and my PS3 is almost new.

    I honestly have never experienced this problem ever before and I would appreciate some advice.

    I'm going to call Sony tomorrow regardless...it's a brand new system... Thanks.

    That's crap especially since you haven't had it too long.

    I have no advice for you cause it's never happened to me.

    Hopefully you get it sorted mate

    Got the receipt? Exchange it. It's obviously defective.

    Sounds like a HDD issue to me. Can't think of anything to do other than Rebuild Database and Restore File System.

    I'd definitely give Sony a call. Good Luck

    I have seen this in the past, but I thought it was for old PS3s. I'll give it a shot. Thanks Javro.

    No worries. That does sound similar, only my screen totally froze

    I can confirm that my issue was solved by Javro's recommendation! That shit totally fucking worked. I was able to fully install without any problems at all.

    When my PS3 fatboy broke I got a new 120Gb slim and had similar problems but I had been without a PS3 for a few months so was not keen to send my new one away but I have had the 120Gb slim about 2 years now and it has stopped , I wouldn't advise you do this , you should defo take it back and get a straight swap , you really don't want a repair
