Re: Can B:TS run on phat ps3?

Oct 12, 2013

NO!  I am borrowing my brother's copy which worked on his PS3 slim.  Had the same issues with The Last of Us. That game also crashed on my GEN1 PS3, but works properly on my PS3 slim. I have modded the phattie to 300G and I restored file system. Just like the last of us I get almost through the prologue before it crashes and goes to the blinking red light phase.

Has anyone tried a digital download copy of the game on the first gen PS3?

My theory is it might be bad disc pressing of certain games or coding/programming. I don't feel like spending $60 to test the theory.

Other recent games that to work fine on my GEN1 PS3:

Ni No Kuni

Tales of Xillia

Batman Arkham City

Dead Island Riptide

DMC

Project Diva F

So would this be a hardware or software issue? I need to know since I'm tempted to buy a new ps3 bundled with GTAV, TLOU and B:TS.
If I ever start to think straight, this heart will start a riot in me.

It would be some hardware issue.  Perhaps some older launch gen consoles can't handle the heat generated by running this game or they have failing powersupplies, both of which would make the system shut off.  I have a new super slim model, the one bundled with Uncharted 3 and it runs BTS normally.  I don't think the issue is with the game.
