I have the 120GB PS3 System Software version 4.30. My PS3 has frozen on my three times already when I am in a lobby waiting for the game to start. I believe it is happening as the game is about to start loading the map. I have to manually power down the playstation because the game just sits on that screen and I can't do anything. I am pretty sure that I will just have to wait for a patch for this problem to be fixed. I just wanted to confirm that this issue is happening to other players. Thanks.
Dude, seriously- just stop. Unless you don't care about having to buy a new system.
Eventually you're going to have to boot your PS3 in safe mode and rebuild the hard drive. After so many hard reboots and check disks - it happens.
Just return the game and then do your part by telling others not to go anywhere near it. Period
I have had the same issue on the fat and the skinny here. Now my system will not read any disk. I guess all the hard off and system restore of the corrupt file(s) have did it in. I now have a useless paper weight. Well I think someone should be held responsible. If others now have a damaged system due to the new Black Ops freeze up problem, I think we should organize a class action lawsuit. I certainly should not have to buy a new system or pay for repair due to my for many years supporting Activision and the COD franchise only to have so many issues and a now defunct console from the recent release.
