Need ps3 help!

So, my PS3 is probably about 3 years old. I have 80gb of space left on it and have never had anything that would be considered an issue. All of my games play fine, with no freezes...until today.

I bought a new game. BRAND NEW. no scratches, no fingerprints, no fuzz or little hairs. I put it in and played for 10 minutes....FROZE. There was still audio from the background music, but the character talking stopped mid sentence. Couldn't use the ps button or any of the others on the controller. Picture was frozen and turning the system off took longer than usual. I restarted it and it did it to me again in a different spot in the game. Frustrated, I tried one more time and it did it to me once again. Only this time, it froze in the same place as it did during the first freeze.

Went back to gamestop and they gladly swapped out disks. Again, a brand new game. Never touched. Same problem. Happened four times. I called them and the guy on the phone told me that it's probably my ps3. I don't have any clue why it would be my hardware because I've never had problems. As we speak, my son has been playing his game for the past hour. No problems.

Anyone know what is going on? Or something I could try? And yes, my ps3 is clean. No dust. I take care of my stuff.

Its the new brand of games. The old playstations can't handle them many times.

Have you checked forums for that game? Could be a common issue. I had that problem with Madden 2008 back in the day and it turned out to be a lot of people with the same issue.

Games work means it's not the PS3. Wouldn't be the first time game after game didn't work. Was it the same game twice, from game stop? They could have gotten a bad batch.

Agree. It sounds like it might be a feature of that specific game. I'd google the specific title of that game and "freezing". There might be a chance that something that game does causes overheating where other games don't, so keeping your PS3 in open air and dust free might help.

. . . I am guessing you probably checked this, but any chance a firmware upgrade is needed to play this game successfully? That is the only scenario that would seem to fit your symptoms.

yes it's the only game that's doing it. I just checked and i found one topic where someone said it happened to them and they've tried two different disks. There were no replies to his post yet. And yes, my ps3 is in a nice open area. no dust. I keep my games clean.

The game just came out yesterday it's the final fantasy x/x-2 hd game.

I'll take it back to gamestop and try another one...again.
