Just got borderlands started it and froze as soon as I get past first cutscene. It also freezes at begginning of infamous 2 demo and kill zone demo but I can play infamous game flawlessly . It can't be disk drive cause it freezes on games I've downloaded on psn so does anyone know what this could be Phone Post

Perhaps delete the save info for those games and re-install them. Your HD might be a bit crappy and have bad sectors on the save points.

Reboot in safe mode (old power button down until it shuts off, then press and hold it down until you hear three beeps). From there run Disk Recovery.

You might have a corrupted file

Sucks dude. My launch 60 gig died two months ago. I went ahead and did an exchange for a Slim with Sony instead of fixing it

This makes me kind of nervous. I have a launch ps3 too. Runs like a champ still. Would have gone through 10 xbox 360's in the time I had this since launch.(went through 3)

I just called their customer service number and told them I wanted to do the exchange program. It's only valid for launch PS3s - it used to be on their website but wasn't when mine broke. It's still available, though.

Since you're system is so out of warranty, the exchange is a lot cheaper than paying to get it fixed. It still will cost you like $70 or so for the shipping or something like that. Sucks, but that is a lot cheaper than the fix (which will break again since it will have the shitty solder).

I got a free year of Plus as well which basically negated the cost of the exchange. I'm not sure if that was part of the deal or because they messed up my shipping.
