Alright guys, so heres the problem i have...after blowing dust off my PS3 its been collecting the last 2 months, i decided to turn it on and access the PSN store to see whats new. Well, it decides to freeze on me every single time i try to enter the store and i have no idea why. I have upgraded to the latest version and just about everything possibly on the PS3. Any advice on this?

Also, i have 2 arcades i bought when i first got my PS3 3 months ago, Mortal Kombat 2 and Magic Ball. I can play MK2 with no problems, but for the life of me i cannot get Magic Ball to load to the title. If anyone has this game, it stops when there are 5 little blue balls at the bottom right screen indicating that it is loading just right before the title and i have left this on for an hour and nothing happens! It doesnt freeze like when i try to enter the PSN store, it just loads forever, and i have had this problem since i first bought it. Can anyone else play this game or even get to the title screen successfully?

Ive tried googling these problems but cannot find anything specifically to help me. I have a 20$ PSN card that i would like to redeem to buy a few more arcades but i dont have too much confidence for that right now.

Edit- i realize this is a 360 section, but hopefully anybody who has a ps3 as well can shed some light on this and help me out, any help is appreciated, thanks!

I find that unplugging the system solves all of its problems...

Mind you that is a one step solution.

This is a xbox forum, not a PS3 forum, take your PS3 and burn it, it's not worthy! :uzi:

This is a message from above telling you to put the PS3 back in the cupboard were it belongs :p

Alas, I cannot help you with your problem.

Doesnt have anything to do with trophies, just a few technical problems. But i think ill give Sony a call today.

Everyone else, yes i can relate because im a xbox fanboy but how is it coming in here telling me to burn my ps3 going to justify the $400 somethin i spent for it?? I just want to play some Wheel of Fortune, goddamnit! So this could be why ps3 offers free online service- you get what you pay for.

I don't hate the PS3, I just hate the people who designed it and then said things like "People will buy the PS3 even if it didn't have any games" and "The PS3 is too cheap at 600$"

I still bought it. More fool me.

How the hell do you get there. I've seen it posted a few times but can't seem to find the way. I need to go brag about my mad Gamecube skills man.

lots of rediculous fanboy hate in here, anyway as for your problem do you perhaps need to perform a system update?
