This testing took place on a 60gig fatty. I will be doing this on my slim tonight.

I've had the game since the release date at midnight, so I've downloaded all of the patches as they were released. Over the last week, the game has been virtually unplayable. My quit ratio grew from 3.8% to 6%.

I loaded up squad rush, because my game tends to freeze at the end of rounds.

Yesterday, I first tried using a new disc, a NON-limited edition. I had a lockup after my 2nd round.

I then tried deleting SAVED data, not game data, but saved data. Reloaded, and tried limited edition and non-limited edition, both froze by the end of the 3rd round. (btw, my game data files were 37 meg more before I deleted them as opposed to when I re-downloaded everything)

I then deleted all game data, re-downloaded everything, and much to my surprise I still had lockups using both discs. first round locked up with limited edition, 3rd round lockup using new disc.

I formatted my ps3. Reloaded, PIECE OF S&#T LOCKED UP FIRST ROUND.

As a last ditch effort, I rebuilt the data base, and restored the file system, and I've played 9 rounds without a lockup!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cliff notes, I HIGHLY recommend rebuilding the data base and restoring the file system. It took me 6.5 hours yesterday to do all this testing, and if I would have just jumped and did the rebuild and restore, I would have been up and running in an hour.


While i don't know if this is a permanent fix, I can tell you that in the last month I have NEVER been able to play 9 rounds without a lockup. And two of my matches yesterday lasted a LONG time. Not only have I not experienced a lockup, but I'm now the first to spawn at the start of a new game, I used to be towards the end, as soon as a new level would load, I would already see my squad running around, now I can actually spawn with them / before them. My PS3 is MUCH faster, and the load times have been significantly reduced.
want to play with other PS3 battlelog people on a rush server without rules and bans? Do a server search for "mocha".

Thx mindset.


Update *** I've played countless games since this was done, and I have still had to have a single lockup.


Plus, the last set of m-coms in the building on Seine Crossing is no longer choppy and glitchy, it runs PERFECTLY smooth.

you spent 6.5h doing that? I'd pull out a hammer after 30 min, beat the ps3 to bits and then feel good about myself for 6h.

I never knew this existed until three days ago when I was researching what would cause my console to lock up non-stop. Corrupt database can make it happen.

i wait to see other people input on this , if it resolve the loading screen of eternity problem i have every time i lost connection or got ban,kick or personal rage quit (i have to quit game and get back to menu to restart the damn thing)...i will try it but i am reluctant because only bf3 cause me problem ...no other game cause any problem of any kind. this is unique to the whole bf series including bf 43 ...so why screwing around my ps when i feel the problem is at the other end of the tunnel ...yes , you ea/dice
