Multiplayer keeps freezing

7 replies 503 views Edited Nov 12, 2013
I'm not just talking about the spinning ring of death. I usually play co-op but once in a while i'll play the competitive modes (TDM or team objective) however everytime I've played it this week 85% it has frozen: either mid-game or at the end of the match at the tally board. Or it'll freeze at the SRoD. When it freezes I have to manually switch off my (phat) ps3 with my finger until it beeps off, then it does that 'check files on system' restore.

I want to know of it's a ps3 issue or a UC3/ND server issue? It only freezes when I'm playing multiplayer, i can't remember the last time it froze whilst I was playing co-op. I don't live in North America (I don't know if that is a big factor when it comes to server issues). So any info would be appreciated.
If I ever start to think straight, this heart will start a riot in me.

Typical game though. It's been bugged before relase but they still released it to make money. You see, every time they fix something, another 10 things break. It's the norm sadly.

Yeah but it only started happening in the past week. Could it be a patch issue? Prior to patch 1.18 i can't ever recall multiplayer freezing on me. In the lat few days it's frozen 4 or 5 times during multiplayer. Thanks for the info though

You could try putting in a different game for a few minutes to clear the cache and see if that helps.

If not you can delete and reinstall the game data and/or patch.

Is your fat PS3 loud when you play?

As was pointed out you could try clearing your cache or reinstalling the game data.

 You can also try rebuilding your consoles database through Safe Mode.

 Or it could be that your HDD or BR drive is dying.

The reason why is because you have a big PS. the older PS models cannot handle games with big files like UC3, GTAV, Beyond and other games that are huge to scale. This is why they are freezing. More times than not you will experience this.
