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.
I bet it has something to do with the game. I have FFXIII-2 and I've barely played it, but it seems to have a lot of little pauses where you wouldn't expect there to be a loading issue. I think Square Enix is just going downhill.

I was hoping you wouldn't say that! Square Enix has a history of sending out faulty discs and blaming hardware on it. You may get lucky and get a good one eventually but chances are slim getting it from the same vendor. Has the Vendor been receiving a lot of them back? If yes, ask for a refund and try a different vendor. According to the SE website, your system is compatible from a hardware standpoint. It is more than likely a quality control issue on their manufacturing side.

Weird, I had Final Fantasy XIII for the PS3 but couldn't finish the game because it stopped working. Weird.

I hated XIII. It was so nice to look at and the story was okay, but the gameplay sucked. Way too linear and each "new" area looked similar to the last.

No doubt. Maybe it was good I didn't get to finish it.

I have a feeling your PS3 is about to die. That would happen to me ONLY when I played MLB the show. Its the content of the disk and it would warm up too much and by the 3rd inning would just go to a black screen. Couple weeks later I got the yellow light of death. At that point you can pay $80 to reball it and it will be a short term fix....maybe 6-12 months.....or you can buy a new ps4 :D

I just googled ps3 reball. Thanks for posting that term. If something were to happen to mine...I might be tempted to try reflowing it.

Same issue as OP. Long history of quality control issue's. It's sad really because they have some talented programers.

So...just an update...

After all of your advice and reading on the internet, I concluded that my ps3 was probably on its last legs. I bought a new PS3 (the last of us 500gb bundle) and now the game works perfectly. Gave my son the old ps3 so he can still play his Kingdom Hearts. So, even if it craps out on him, I still have the new one.
