do I need new playstation?

I have an issue with a ps1 game breath of fire III. It seems to work except when i get in b attles the game may freeze for 2 or 3 minutes. even after 1 turn it may freeze on the second turn. i have tried this game on a ps1 and same issue. i see no scratches on the game. does this sound like a ps2 issue. I have no issues with other games. dp I need anew ps2 to prove this out?

Most likely, your PS1 game has disc rot or deeper scratches not even the system can look past anymore, and the console is fine. You can sometimes resurface these games, but it depends on the condition of the scratch. Just to sanity check the PS2, if the unit works fine with other PS1 games (and PS2 as well), put a super bright light on the disc and look for deep holes in the media. Modern LED lights expose these issues very easily, especially the 1,200+ lumen ones. Something like this:

If you see a bunch of pinholes, the game has "disc rot" and it will never work correctly. If you do not see any, it’s likely due to the media being scratched. Providing it isn’t disc rot, you MAY be able to have it resurfaced - take it to a record shop and ask how much it costs and let them know you are okay with the risk it may not help. For example, my local record shop only charges ~$3/disc, give or take (it’s been a while since the pandemic, but it’s so cheap I would take the chance on a disc worth far more than the cost, especially if I’m buying something anyway). It may very well be worth lighting a few bucks on fire if it’s a game that’s expensive or a little hard to find. The only difference between a PS1 game and an audio CD is the black dye, and most know this and while they may not SELL games, they often resurface them when you bring them in knowing this if you bring it in.

@gary999 this is a game issue not a console issue. You DO NOT NEED A NEW CONSOLE.

Ran into this issue with Spryo Ripto's Rage - there's a few games which are prone to disc rot on the PS1 from the early launch days. GRANTED I used a new to me PSOne when I did the laser guide years ago, but that's a completely different scenario - I owned it, so it was a $0 test.

I covered it more in my answer, but I think OP should look into gamble on getting it resurfaced and pray. I took a shot in the dark on that one and lost, but Spyro games are so hard to find (not rare, but not an everyday find). It fit the shoot in the dark criteria.
