Could you let me know
1.when did you first started to play the game?
2. Are you getting stuck on Single Player or Multiplayer?
3. When did this error first started to occur?

Thank you.

Hey mines not freezing since the new ps3 patch 4.11. Try that update. And @ thewudi I can't find the c4 on the recon class loadout could you please let dice know they should put c4 back on recon class thanks. I have been writing getsatisfaction.com for 3months now and haven't heard back even 1 time.
It's about damn time we got c4 back

Nimer when was the last time you actually sync'd your trophies on your system lol. otherwise go into your "GAME DATA UTILITY" section and delete the battlefield 3 file. don't worry this isn't your save file. after that just pop in the disc and let it reupdate. you will have to download your dlc again too.

@TheWudi: the screen is before he even gets to the menus.

I have the exact same problem on the PC. RIDICULOUS!!! So....what was that 2.5 gig update for? To break the game further? Why do you even bother pretending Dice are programmers?! They are clearly not!!

I'm having issues now to. July 21, 2012. Last 2 days. Game will load to menu. When I try to play mp, map will start to load, and when you think you are about to hope in and select class, squad, et cetera, it goes to the black loading screen forever. I wonder if this is punishment for watching the Scorpian King 3?

First failed attempt to fix: uninstalled game data utility, restart ps3, reload bf3, update to new patch, get online pass updated, reinstalled CC, and BtK map packs. Hoped on, and nothing, just the big FU black loading screen again. I never should have watched the Scorpian King 3, I'm paying for it now.

Second Attempt: I"m not going to install BtK or CC until I know it works. I checked to see if there werre any system updates. There was one. So I installed it. Loaded BF3, and then thought would play. Nope, just the big FU black loading screen.

Third Attempt: Blue Ray DVD lense cleaner, took a few minutes. Deleted BF3 game utility. Re-installed game to HDD. Updating patch as I type. Once done, I'll do the lense cleaning again for good measure. I'll update once I know more.

Edit

After the 2nd Gamd Data Utility delete, cleaning of blue ray lense, and reinstallation, it worked.

Edit Update

Got the indefinate load screen fixed after 3x delete of game data, 3x reinstall, 3x update on patch, 3x download of all map packs. Now the big FU no gun spawn issue after every death. Sometimes I even just load in, and no guns. If Dice/EA does not get a fix soon on their pile of bs, they will loose a valued customer.
