Why do some games not work on my fat PS3?

Recommended Posts

These games are Resident Evil 5, GTA 4, and Resistance. The first level for them work I think but after they stop. Anyone else have this issue?

This is most likely a problem with the console itself, possibly overrating. If it is an original fat PS3 then it will be well over 10 years old now. Try given the vents and fans a good clean and position the console so there's plenty of space for the air to flow through it. If the problem persists then I'm afraid there isn't much you can do, this is just what can easily happen with older consoles, especially early versions of them.

Are they PS2 games? The early releases of the PS3 supported PS2 games, but they caused overheating and the system to crash. So Sony rereleased the PS3 without PS2 capabilities, even though PS2 is still mentioned on the home screen. If you’re running PS2 games, you would be better off getting a PS2 to play them on.

No they are PS3 games. I can try to make it not overheat. I wonder if I buy them on psn if that solves it.

The PS5 is almost out, the real question is, why are you still playing on the PS3? 😛

Jokes aside, it’s probably an issue with the ventilation. Worth trying some solutions listed above.
