October 18, 2009 // 3:16 am - This weekend is the first many Uncharted 2 fans have had to get into the PS3 game, which was released last week on October 13 in the US, October 15 in Australia and October 16 in European markets.

That being said, this weekend also marks the beginning of numerous Uncharted 2: Among Thieves freezing reports surfacing... which appear to affect all makes and models of PS3 and can 'strike' at anytime.

However, the majority of reports say that it comes near the end of the game, with a few complaining of freezing problems at the start.

Currently there is no surefire way to fix this problem, however, many are simply returning the game to their retailer to exchange it for a new copy.

To quote: "Whether the system is the cause of the problem, the game, or a possible firmware glitch is the root of the problem hasn't been deciphered, yet. Unfortunately for those who are being affected by the freezing issue, there isn't a sure way to fix it at the given time.

If you are experiencing this problem, you may want to exchange your current copy for a new copy at your local retailer. Hopefully, that will fix the problem for you."

If anyone here has experienced a freezing issue with Uncharted 2 on their PlayStation 3 console feel free to report it in the comments below!

I've been having this problem very frequently throughout not just the single player but mainly the multiplayer as well and i've come up with a fix.

Every time you play the game you have to delete any old game update data (such as the new update that just came out) then go on as you would by starting the game. Then it will download and install it again and you will be free to play the gameuntil you turn of the ps3 or exit back to the ps3 xmb.

Unfortunately this isn't a permanent fix but it does work for me and if this works with you guys please reply and maybe naughty dog can use this to fix the problem for everyone in a later update.

I've completed uc2 bout 3-4 times (collecting the medals etc) and not once have i had it freeze on me.

The disc made me update from 2.76 to 2.8, but i think the freeze issue could be hardware, software and firmware related ie. firmware version x.xx, with uc2, and defected/deteriorated hardware (you might take care of your ps3 but its still prone to damage, even if you dont know it yet)

Anyways, iv had no issues with a jap launch 60gb, fw 2.8

Yea, my Fallout would always freeze around the ants. It was rather annoying.

I had one freeze while playing Uncharted 2. Not a big deal since there is a autosave point every 10 seconds.

I had a freeze almost at the end of the game, but after restarting my PS3 the problem was gone.

I have the same problem, I don't get the game freeze but in single player mode the system shuts down and the red light blinks. This is very annoying, I love the game but not enjoying playing it because of this.

Guys this issue is more serious than you think. All lot of gamers are reporting not only freezing but also an auto shut down while playing the Single Player and All Co-Op modes. Here's a link to the PS Forums with this topic [url[/url]

All other games work fine, plus the ps3 is not hot when it shuts downs. Also when it shuts down, there is a red blinking light. Team Death match works fine for hours but with 30 seconds or more sometimes an hour or on another occasion 10 mins, the ps3 would just shut down and give you a red blinking light while playing the Single Player and All Co-Op Modes. Can you guys check it out, and email Sony about this issue please? A few of us have contacted Sony have said that they are aware of the issue...

I am also having a lot of problems with Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.. I am having problems since the Multiplayer Beta. The Multiplayer Beta did froze a few times and now with the original game i've had a lot of freezes and one overheating problem. I've got a PAL 60GB PS3 (CECHC04) running firmware 3.01

Maybe we could do something with these bugs, because i also had one while picking up a treasure so maybe the devs could find something interesting in this game..

I am having problems with COD4 since release date on every firmware after the release it overheats my PS3. I've made a call with Sony a long time ago and they told me there were soms driver problems with COD4 so it could be that..

Unfortunately I have a big problem with UC2 as well. While attempting to take a screenshot of a previous match (using the in-game feature) - I always getting horrendously screwed up pictures with nothing being viewable to any degree. Peeps on the Sony forums said I have to have a 720P set for it to work, which is ridiculous, but ok.

Hopefully Naught Dog patches that up, cause I'd like to photograph my victories over my brother in that game.

Unfortunately i didn't buy the game to test this yet, but i feel lucky there will be an update sooner or later to fix it anyway.
