Since the release of Firmware 3.30, Dragon Age: Origins has been experiencing freezing issues and crashes. BioWare is aware of the issues and is currently working on a patch to fix the problems. The patch is currently in testing to ensure the issues are indeed fixed. It may still take a few weeks before the patch is publicly released.
Fernando Melo at the BioWare Forums:
Thanks to the great feedback on here and from those folks we’ve been in contact with directly, the team now thinks we’ve been able to find a code-side workaround from our end to patch DA to play nicer with firmware 3.3, which was one of our investigation threads.
We are currently testing this proposed code change as I write this, and if successful the next step will be for it to go into EA’s publisher side certification testing. They are aware of the importance of this and will give this priority in the queue of titles/patches across EA. And once that clears, it will go into Sony cert testing.
