Re: Game not installing.

I would give it a good clean and i also deleted the update i figure its best to let it install before getting the update. All that in the end worked for me.

I FOUND A FIX.

For me, I went into the game data utility, and deleted both the patch and the other listed file for the game. I restarted the game and it installed just fine.

My suggestion is, if you got the limited edition, install the game first THEN use the code from limited edition, I believe this is what is causing the problem.

(I do not own this game, so my comment does not have direct experience it)
As a rule, unless the game is unplayable without it, I always ignore the first day patches. It's best to wait for the second patch, which will come in short time lol. They always do.

Re: Game not installing.

I've tried everything at this point:

 

  1. Insert disc
  2. Install day one update
  3. Get stuck on 0% progress install screen
  4. Remove disc
  5. Delete save data
  6. Delete day one update
  7. Clean disk of fingerprints, Cheetos, Mountain Dew, etc.
  8. Restart system
  9. Sacrifice fatted calf
  10. Insert disc
  11. Skip day one update
  12. Get stuck on 0% progress install screen

All told it's been about two hours. At this point I'm pretty much done trying to get it to work. Unless one of you guys has some secret wisdom that hasn't been expressed in the thread yet I'm taking this thing back to GameStop tomorrow. When my fury abates I'll look into going digital.

So as stupid as it sounds, it seems that cleaning the disk is the way to fix it. Make sure there is no finger-prits or anything else on it.

Same problem here. PS3 new (some days of life) bundle 500GB with Beyond and TLOU.
Installed TLOF without problems (yeas used code too).
Yes I did download the additional content before trying to install and yes I tryied the fix, it was slightly better: installed something with the double bar and then black screen.
I cleaned the disk.

I trying to guess whta's the problem.. I sense like it's a file corrupetd in something, not on the disk but on the installation download or a problem with some other file of the firware.. or something I didn't downloaded.

sorry for this horrible post, I'm jist sleepy and tired to try.

This sounded too good to be true.  I had to chuckle because it actually worked!

Thanks Redbeard.   Goes to show always go low-tech before you go high-tech.
