    i own a 40 gig ps3, which has been fine until recently when playing call of duty modern warfare 2, my ps3 froze, had to shut off power to turn it off as it was completely unresponsive, so i tried again to no avail, when playing saints row 2 the game had no voices during and after a cut scene, sound effects still there but no voices, game didn't crash, but when i tried to save it froze. i don't have my recite any longer and the warrenty is no doubt expired, all i can think of is that it may be overheating, but after leaving it on and checking the vent it still isn't hot.

    any ideas, the only idea i have been offered so far is to format the hard drive, which is not my prefferance as most save files will not be transferable to a usb or external hard drive.

    You can send it in for repair for around $150 or just shell out $300 for a new slim. Personally, I'd go with the slim myself. New warranty and a bigger HDD to boot. You can just transfer everything over from the old system to the new one using a standard LAN cable plugged between both PS3s. The instructions are found here: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/3_15/settings/transferutility.html

    The new slims have a lot better heat management too. I'm thinking about getting a new one myself.

    If you want to try the repair route you can do so here: https://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/index.do (The $150 is just a guess on my part for a nonwarranty repair. Not sure what the charge would actually be though they should be able to give you an actual figure.)
