FIFA 11 Freezing On PS3 - Micro Freeze Problem

25
Found 14th Jan 2011
I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing this 'micro-freeze' on FIFA 11 for PS3?

When playing an Offline or Online game it will freeze for about 2-3 seconds during game play. It is highly annoying and it sometimes does it for about 6 times a game. It always seems to happen when your about to score. I have a PS3 Slim 250GB model.

Please let me know if you have experienced this problem and what PS3 model you have.

*Please note that this has nothing to do with the internet connection as it happens Offline*

i have a ps3 slim 250 GB model also and experience the exact same thing. What annoys me most is i can't find a reason why it does it and how to stop it.

I found this video on YouTube of the problem.

I don't suffer this problem on the Phat George Forman 80GB model.

this happens to me all the time online! its so frustrating!
It never happens offline multiplayer though....

This happens to me on the xbox and like u say it happens when ur camped in there half about to shoot or score. Could it be a game thing rather than console thing?

I've been reading other forums and people are saying that it is the actual game that is the problem and EA are aware of the problem but they have not rectified it.

My FIFA 10 used to have this problem but it was less frequent.

One of EAs work arounds is to turn off custom chants.
Some people not using custom chants still get the freezes though.

I don't think there is a permanent fix. Everyone is waiting for EA to release a patch that will fix the problem.

They already released a patch that they claimed to have fixed it.
Have they said they are working on a new patch?
If not I can see them washing their hands of FIFA 11 now and concentrating on FIFA 12, like they did last year with 10.

I'm not sure if they are working on a new patch but I'm sure that the problem still exists and there is no permanent fix for it.

If you call them they will not acknowledge the issue and they have no plans to fix it. EA customer service sucks. Very dissapointed. They use to be a great company.

Had the game for a couple of months, Suddlenly just started with the micro freezing, I have a ps3 slim 320G!!

I heard that it affects PS3 Slims more.

I have had a slim since they came out, i now have a 320gig, I have had fifa 11 since it came out and its only recently started micro freezing, It seems to be a very big issue affecting alot of people, So i cant see how its hardware related, I have seen accounts of it happening on slims and phat ps3's although its more common on the slims, I have also seen people say they have it on the xbox 360 but not many. All we can do is wait for fifa 12 and hope it doesnt do the same, I also get freezing at random times in the match, Sometimes not at all but mainly about 3-4 times, More in the second half strangly!! And just before scoring a goal, I have a feeling its something to do with the hard drive.

I have it, 250GB slim. Seems to do it more when I'm outputting sound from the slim via optical.
