Actually no, deleting the 1.01 update doesn't make any difference, I tried it and ran into the same issue again afterwards.

This is how you fix the problem.

1. Make sure you're signed out of PSN.
2. Load a save or start a new game.
3. Sign in to PSN if you wish.

I recommend disabling PSN auto-sign in if you plan to play this game for a while.

Important: If your PS3 freezes, do not unplug it. Hold the power button until it shuts down. Do not turn it off from the back power button which is only present on phat PS3 models.

Hopefully, more people will post this problem. Is not the controller, neither the game data or save data. I uninstalled the game and erase the game and save data and it still happening. And the lock or freeze is different. Is the one that you press the power button to stand by or turn off and it stays on with green light blinkin like twice a second  and nothing happens and I need to unplugged the ps3. HATE unpluging the PS3 while on!!!! Please Sony, take care of it cause if my ps3 gets damaged because of this you wont give me a Free PS3!

               Thanks

I'm really kinda surprised this hasn't been patched. I mean, it seems like a pretty major bug, plus it is getting a lot of attention now that it is part of PS+.

The problem is obvious. Your PS3 is just not ready for the mega awesomeness that is Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Charles D.: I can understand why this is upsetting but I can only troubleshoot the issue. You have done most of the steps already but there is another step we can try.

I haven't heard any complaints related to this game so far. I don't have information if there will be a patch released for this game.

southpawdragon: i would rather delete game, game data and saved data again and wait for an email that problem been solved before redownloading game if no patch can be given

Charles D.: Now I did research the game and the actual Publisher of the game is Square Enix you may want to contact them to see if they have any information about a patch for the game:

Square Enix Phone Support: 310-846-0345
Email Support: support.na.square-enix.com/

southpawdragon: i dont get it though any patch they provide has to be downloaded outside of psn store?\
Charles D.: Yes when ever there is a patch released for any game. When you connect online with the game it would detect the latest patch available to help the stability of the game. Since they are the Publishers they would have information about a Patch for the game.

southpawdragon: but the game locks the ps3
southpawdragon: most of the time


Charles D.: Since its a downloaded game on the HDD. When it has issues loading correctly it would cause the PS3 to freeze.

southpawdragon: i will contact square and mention your reply in the forum since im not the only one experiencing this
