BioWare is working with Sony to discover why Dragon Age: Origins struggles to run on PS3. The problems started after Sony released firmware update 3.30 for the console last week. BioWare's community forums are clogged with reports of game crashes.
A similar thing actually happened to me with JC2. The game locked up with no sound and the right analog stick wouldn't work. At first I deleted the gamedata, but when that failed to work I just deleted the settings gamesave and the game functioned properly after that.
