Just wondering. My 360 has only froze 3 times and everytime has been when I was playing online on NBA 2k6 (anyone else have this problem with this game). Pretty sure my problem has to do with the game not the system. (I hope)

My system has only froze up twice and both times were while playing Need For Speed, no other problems though.

My 360's only frozen on me while I was playin DOA4 online, other then that it runs smooth. ;D

Mine Locked up once durring NFS:MW when I first got the system. Nothing else since then...

03-02-2006, 03:01 PM
only one time

03-02-2006, 03:03 PM
Once on Full Auto. I think that's the game though.

03-02-2006, 07:10 PM
i couldnt stand Full Auto, the framerate got so bad at times, i just took it back

03-02-2006, 07:17 PM
The only time mine froze was when i was playing full auto and i hit the guide button(3 times) i learned not to hit the button while i was in game

03-02-2006, 11:27 PM

03-02-2006, 11:28 PM
Mine's only frozen up when I rented Full Auto, and once when playing PDZ (i was on for like 10 hours before it froze on PDZ though). Other than that its been fine, except for my friends cousin who works at microsoft hacking into it.

I have a small fan that I turn on that blows on my console when I am playing. Since I started that, I never have issues. That was with my old console that I traded in to get the Star Wars one. I do the same with this one, but just to play it safe.

My 360 has frozen a few times but I believe that's mainly down to the games I was playing on it at the time, those being Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. It has frozen a couple of times on some other games but not nearly as frequently as it did for the Fallout games.

08-18-2012, 10:14 PM
Oddly only freezes during loading screens, when I'm playing Skyrim

08-18-2012, 10:34 PM
Mine has frozen plenty of times but I don't blame it, it's old. I remember it froze while playing New Vegas but that game was really buggy when it came out. then recently it froze while playing batman.

08-18-2012, 10:38 PM
WOW! A 6 yr. old thread!!! How does anyone find these?

In the 6 years I've had 360, too many to count. But I just restart it and keep going.

08-18-2012, 10:45 PM
It freezes here and there but nothing to send it in for.

08-18-2012, 10:51 PM
All the time but as chickenonachain said, I just restart and start again.

08-19-2012, 04:45 AM
It does it quite alot to me, but only when I'm playing certain games. It's just that I play those certain games quite alot.

I'm looking at you, Saints Row 2 .

08-19-2012, 05:25 AM
It has froze on me a couple of times. The last time it happened was the day before yesterday.. it froze on me when I pressed the dashboard button.

um correction: GUIDE button^^

08-19-2012, 06:08 AM
I think my last froze about a week ago playing dragon age 2. Had to re-do abit seeing as i hadn't saved, but oh well.

08-19-2012, 07:09 AM
Twice. Both times I got a RROD out of it.

08-19-2012, 07:47 AM
Wow... too many times to count on 2 hands. I dont know how bad that is...

08-19-2012, 08:42 AM
I would say "all the time" but that would be assuming it happens every day. It has froze over a hundred times, probably two hundred though that much I can say for certain. It almost always has to do with some sort of online game, about 20 to 50 times the culprit has been Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. It's the damn way that game is set up...sometimes you try to join a lobby and it suddenly freezes on the page turns, thus leading to you having to turn off and turn on the xbox.

Alright...it may even be more than two hundred. On one occasion or another it will occur with a single-player title...maybe something went wrong with the graphics or the disc is effed up. Who knows. To be honest I have my audio cut out A LOT MORE. My HDMI cable I got with my elite loves to do that in the middle of a game...everything will just give out and I'll have to replug it in just to get the audio back (on a couple occasions this did not fix it and I had to restart the xbox).

Anyways...I chose, the every now and then option. I'm actually surprised to see people say that they've only had it happen once or twice. With so many games out there with messed up online I'm sure your Xboxes have frozen waaaaaaaaaay more times than just a few.

Edit: I realize that this thread is over 6 years old now...so back then maybe it wasn't as common to have games freeze up. I see the more recent posts in here say that it happens quite a bit, so I guess the early 2006 models or at least the games and their online worked better than they do today!

Normally every time I play Forza 4 on-line, first the custom designs just stop loading, then an all out freeze.

Doesn't happen on any other game oddly enough.

There's also every odd time I try and join a friends party, then XBL disconnects, then I try reconnecting and it freezes.

08-19-2012, 10:21 AM
Actually, for me, it's the other way round, my first gen 360 froze maybe around 10 times. The new one, on the other hand, not even once, even though I play online, a lot more now

08-19-2012, 11:36 AM
A couple of times. It used to freeze alot on FIFA 12 due to downloaden Creation Centre content

08-19-2012, 11:46 AM
I've had mine freeze only a handful of times, and I've had mine for about 5 years. It's usually when I go to dashboard or loading. I've always kept it very well ventilated and flat not vertical.

08-19-2012, 12:26 PM
Ive been playing some H.A.W.X recently and it usually crashes up at the start screen of the game, its happened about 5 times.

Ive also had freezes when playing on of the Need For Speed games because the console just couldn't handle the game.

Well after recently completing Fallout: Freeze Vegas, I'd say it's frozen up on me at least 30 times from that game alone. If I added up all the freezes together from the 3 years I've been playing the 360, I'd say it's at least 100...probably more.

08-19-2012, 02:28 PM
It's always freezing, normally when I play one game for too long

08-19-2012, 02:36 PM

Maybe in the early consoles, they were RROD instead of locking up. ;)

08-19-2012, 03:33 PM
Freezes up here and there.

But I put that down virgin media and mr bolt.

08-19-2012, 03:49 PM
Very rarely, and considering it's four years and a couple of months, I have absolutely no reason to complain.

08-19-2012, 03:58 PM
I dunno, now and then. Doesn't happen very often.

My current console (mw3 edition) has never frozen on me upto now, but my old slim did quite a few times.

08-19-2012, 04:18 PM
Mine only freezes after prolonged use, sometimes I forget to turn it off and come home from work or from being out and go to play it'll freeze not very often. I've had the slim for over a year, but my old xbox used to freeze all the time no mater what.

08-20-2012, 03:21 AM
The corrupt save from Dead Island froze mine every time I tried to play. Besides that time to time from other games but not enough to red ring me. Just fine after a restart.

08-20-2012, 03:27 AM
It freezes here and there. Its not because of a certain game either. It happened on Skyrim when it was loading. Happened with Dead Island once when it was loading last week. Every time it happens I'm afraid I will get a corrupt save or something but so far I haven't.

Mine freezes every so often, usually on a loading screen. So thankful for the autosave on Skyrim, I would have lost so much progress without it.

08-20-2012, 10:04 AM
An average of once per day.

And I also got a Red ring of death, my disc driver doesn't open if there's no disk inside it and I had to change a powerbrick because the last one made some noises and after a week it stopped working at all. Still, I have never changed the console.

08-20-2012, 09:15 PM
Mine would freeze at least 2, 3 times a month every month no matter what I'm doing or playing, I own a Slim and it pretty much overheats in 5 minutes but who knows what the issue for freezing is.

lol @ 6 year thread necro:p

it would've been nice if the poll options were in order, like from most occurences to least. its kinda all over lol.

my 360 has frozen atleast twice this month, im really thinking of getting the new halo4 console when it hits.

how many 360 freezes since this thread was made? :(depressing

08-20-2012, 11:50 PM
Star Ocean would freeze on 1080. Switch to 720 no problem. Skyrim crash many times :(

08-20-2012, 11:56 PM
Mostly on Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas.

Also a bit of Skyrim.

Aside from those it never does.

08-20-2012, 11:59 PM
it usually freezes up with Bethesda games like Fallout, but even then its been maybe 7 times.

08-21-2012, 02:48 AM
Freezes up everytime i try to play Mercenaries 2 Online because of the whole Fuck-Up by EA

08-22-2012, 03:59 AM
mine rarely freezes

08-22-2012, 10:20 PM
It happens to me like once a blue moon.

Sadly to many to count amd it was across at least 20 different games. :rant:

08-22-2012, 11:00 PM
The last 2 days I've had 6 freezes playing Minecraft and countless disconnections from people in my world. And around 10pm every night if I'm playing Minecraft I get disconnected playing it from XBL. But only Minecraft.

08-24-2012, 07:09 PM
it dosn't freeze up to often, but every once and awhile it goes haywire and will free like ten times in one day. but then it won't freeze up for several months.

Whenever I close the Sales and Special Deals App, it closes. Haven't used it in a few days. Don't want to bother restarting or giving the few folks on my list a ding for me signing in twice in four minutes.

08-24-2012, 10:48 PM
It would literally freeze up all the time on the DC Drift tutorial on Dirt 3 when I tried to restart no idea why must of done it around 8 times other than that just the usual suspects BF3/Mw3 I think a lot of shooters crash from time to time.

08-24-2012, 11:57 PM
My old Xbox 360 Arcade froze up probably hundreds of times, but my new Xbox 360 Slim hasn't froze a single time and I've had it for several months now. I've even played discs that have been scratched up very badly and it still reads it fine.
