Is my P|S3 about to die.

#1BehaviorismPosted 2/6/2013 9:26:16 AM
I've been playing Need for Speed: The Run and Mass Effect. During both games, my PS3 has been freezing nonstop. In need for speed, more than once the screen turned into a polygon mess and I was driving in the air into a glitched nowhere. Any advice?

Could be. The polygonal thing could be a sign of the GPU beginning to fail. All the freezing could be due to the bluray diode beginning to fail, as well. It would be hard to know for sure what exactly is causing the problem until you had a full failure somewhere.

Thats not good. Can I get it fixed at a gamestore without destroying my memory?

Are there any other symptoms? Does it skip or whatever while playing another game?

You can always back up your entire HDD to an external drive before you get a full failure. It's a safe bet to backup while you can, just in case anything does happens. You can always copy your gamesaves to a usb drive or something if that's all you cared about, though the locked ones could only be backed up on the cloud if you have PS+.

it doesn't skip, it just freezes constantly. Every now and then the sounds goes out. I use it a lot for DVD's and Blu-Rays too. Does that make a difference?

Does it have issues with blu-rays? If not, I doubt there is a drive issue...

You could take it and get it diagnosed. It's better to get someone to experience firsthand what your issue is and if it's about to die.
