PS3 crashing with BF3

It took me over 3 hours to get into the game Saturday May 19th. After rebuilding my HD and reinstalling the game data and update 1.4 twice I was finally able to play.

Sunday May 20th. Worked fine. Decided I was going to download Back to Karkand. Took me over 12 hours to get back into the game. After rebuilding my HD around a dozen times & reinstalling game data and update 1.4 around 6 times I'm finally able to get into the game but only play one round. At the loading screne for the next map it freezes.

Monday May 21st. Still able to get into the game. Have not downloaded Back to Karkand. Only able to play a single round. Game freezes on loading screne for next map.

This is on my PS3 console. There are a couple very minor scratches on my Blu Ray disc. System does not seem to be over heating. Lots of ventilation and never more than moderatly warm to the touch.

I'm lost. Is it time to give up and go buy COD? I love BF3 last I checked I was number 29 with the M240B. It's a long weekend here in British Columbia & my weekend of gaming has been written off.

I'll throw it out, and get a new one

Disc marks will ruin you.. get it replaced. I think they charge a small fee to replace it, do that.. Then replace your HDD if need be. Then you'll be good.

Those time frames are ludicrous, so there must be something wrong with your HDD/disc.

New disk. Cost me $3.66. No help.

Currently formatting my HDD. Will take in for warranty if no help.

Thanks for the help Lrishjake.

There has been a lot of problems with freezing on some maps like gulf of Oman. It freezes almost every time I play that map.but seems to only freeze on it.

Formatting the HDD & Reinstalling BF3 Game Data seems to have fixed the problem.

Thanks again Lrishjake!

See you on the battlefield
