This happens two three times a day atleast. Mid game it freezes, then i need to reboot. This only happens with BF3, it has never happened on any other game, and just for the sake of testing i played GoW all day with no crashes at all. Does this happen to others aswel? please fix whatever this is. Rather annoying :(

It happened to me twice in 30 hours, I know it happens to my friends too. I don't know why it happens more frequently to some than others. Definitely hope a fix is in the first patch.

It's pushing the hardware to its limits; you have to let the Xbox rest. It's not like a COD game where the Xbox just laughs at the crappy engine and plays it like butter 24\7. This game will frizzle that shizzle up.

Well mate, when i bought it it didnt say, warning may make your crapbox overheat and freeze every 5 hours. its not often, but happens at the most inconvenient times.

It has happened to me as well, not my friends though and usually happens after I die or am changing my weapons.

Hasn't happened to me in a week.
I just moved my xbox near an open area where it can get some air.

Install the game, so it runs smoother.

Less freezes if you install.
MW3 is the True sequel to Battlefield 2

Sometime the awesome is too much and the machine breaks. It happens; even to us.
Just thinking back to when I saw my first pair of breasts, I needed to sit down for some minutes.

Ok, thanks for that. Spoke to the techs at EA yesterday and they said "we are aware of the issue it has been raised by lots of people and we are working to resolve it" No time frame given however!!!

wtf are you talking about, you can install the game to the HDD on xbox 360....
I don't get any freezes with it installed or with the game uninstalled and only textures installed and running game from disc....
1. treat your disc nicely
2. make sure your xbox 360 is in a well Ventelated area
3. clean the disc tray of dust
4. clean all the air vents of dust
5. make sure your xbox 360 is on a flat level surface.
6. clear your system cache

I know allot of peeps that play bf3 on xbox 360 and none of them have lockup issues like this? if none of those fix the problem your having then maybe your the minority with failing hardware.

and if your in a really hot enviroment you really should buy the extra cooling Extension that attaches 3 high power fans to help draw more heat out.
The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, but the naïve go on, and are punished for it.

How do I install it to the HDD on the Xbox? Does that mean you don't need to use the disc?

before you load the game press "X" and it should take you to disc options. there you should have the option to install the game to your hdd.

i only realised this (being new to xbox) a week or so ago :/
