    You must have a faulty PS3 because my old fat 40GB PS3 never ever froze on me, with the exception of some betas.

    sounds like a bad hard drive, a corrupt hard drive, or your blu-ray lense is going out. I currently own 4 ps3's and NONE of them ever freeze up unless it's a shitty game like FO3, a corrupt/damaged HD, or blu-ray went out.

    All are fixable. Try rebuilding your database, switching HD's out, or wait till your blu-ray dies and replace it.

    Yeah I totally know right? I mean the 5 360's I've owned in the past only broke down within a year of each other while my ps3 has only broken down twice since launch but hey at least the 360 doesn't freeze on me?

    ...It does? >.<

    I don't know because I'm not a tech person. I would advise to send it to Sony for theme to check out or some type of hardware shop, yeah know it's their job.

    Did you try rebuilding your PS3 DB? Some say this has helped with freezes etc. Might with you too.

    I've got 4 PS3's and not one has froze on a recurring basis. With all of my PS3's put together, they've probably froze a total of 5 times, if that. As others have stated, yours may be faulty or it could be dying. Obviously the older models are much worse than the newer models.

    maybe you dont take care of it aka leave it on all day when on at school, work etc. try bringing it to best buy and see what they can do. my first ps3 i brought, and it was ylod, but they still helped for free. if u want, you can pay a certain amount of $ for them to fix it, if they see any problems.
    I still play Black Ops because me and brother have 2 PS3's and share a copy of Modern Warfare 3. So that is why I play it sometimes. Thats the *ONLY* time I play Black Ops! When brother is not playing MW3, I am!

    Don't know how possible this is in your case, but you could always try and attach it to a PC and run some diags using a tool like HDDGuru. This could at least tell you that state of the drive using SMART.

    But, it might be that it's getting too hot, or needs a clean out. Hopefully you've put it in a well ventilated, dust free area?

    HD is dying, or Blu-ray player is dying most likely if he ran the database rebuild tool.

    whenever you're on a loading screen, do not press the XMB button, it's likely that the whole PS3 will freeze if you do that. It happened to me in WipEout, Brink, and sometimes MAG. hope that helps.
