I have the new ps3 slim charcoal blue.
All adult owned. Help please
Try contacting Playstation Support here:
Or visit Playstation.com to find the support site for your region (outside of U.S)
Here is a link for some troubleshooting steps from Playstation's Knowledge Center:
Also, I'd try to load the game once while your PS3 isn't connected to the internet (so it won't prompt you for the patch), and see if it loads successfully or if it still freezes.
If the troubleshooting doesn't help, I'd suggest contacting Playstation Support using the link I posted previously in this thread. Hope the issue is resolved soon.
