Using originals not backups my PS2 freezes up after playing for an hour sometimes it takes longer. It has done it with 3 different games 2 of which are practically brand new. Does anybody have any ideas? I have read about laser problems but I dont remember freezing up being one of the symptoms. Also the PS2 is a V7 that I bought brand new about 5 months ago. If this has been discussed already sorry I looked around for a while and could not find anything about it. In case anybody wanted to know what games.....so far ATV off road fury 2 (no scratches at all) ESPN basketball(no scratches at all) and The Thing (does have some small scratches). If anybody has any ideas, I appreciate it.
