sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't, but I seem to experience random freezes. i have GOW_ZYmax. idk if maybe i need to reformat or defrag my memory stick since i havent done that in a while, but i dont seem to be getting it in any other games. anyone else experiencing this? edit: i've poked around gamefaq's forums and have read a few experiencing this right in the beginning with a hard copy of the game as well (happens for me in the beginning with the 1.5gb iso), maybe it's just a bug in the game at the beginning, regardless of the media it's played through...not sure though.
