Hi-- I got my copy of Dead Space 3 and it causes my 1st Gen. PS3 to crash evertime the Title Screen loads.
I returned the game and got a second copy and it does the same thing in the exact same spot. The system acts like it is overheating and shuts off with a flashing red light.
The system plays all other games, movies, and streaming content fine including other newer game titles like Assassins Creed III and LEGO LotR. My PS3 is not overheating and has been cleaned thorougly of any dust that could have accumulated.
I have turned the system off and left it unplugged for at least 10 hours and upon start up, Dead Space 3 still crashes the system. I have freed up the entire hard drive except for about 3 gb of memory and have performed the newest system updates.
Come on awesome people--teach me all the magical fixes.
Yishay is correct. Sadly, a lot of people with the old PS3 have encountered this problem with a few newer games.
I have no idea what the cause of the problem is, but obviously it's the hardware and not the game.
I would recommend contacting Sony.
When I got the YLOD on my PS3 fatboy for the 3rd time, I finally took Sony up on their offer to send me a 120GB PS3 Slim for $99 bucks + my old PS3.
Which was cheaper than having them fix my 60GB fatboy.
3 different ps3 consoles, 3 different user names , 2 different DS3 discs. Optional missions, elevator rides, walking through doors as an autosave is happening. 4 times on the mission where you put on the snowsuit so you can go out side. Can't walk through the door without a freeze point and wiped save file. I have saved and quit the game and copied what should have been a "clean" save started at the last "uninterrupted part of the story' and made it through that door but now my game is pretty much ended on the optional "armory" mission. can't take the elevator back to the surface. The sad thing is that EA will not even admit there is a problem with the game. There WAS a 6 page thread on the PSN forums on this topic a few days ago but that seems to have dissapeared. A new one started up - wasa bout 3 pages long with complaints but now that one has mysteriously vanished also. Do you think that thats because PSN has the game for sale on the store?? Do you think the $15 add-ons sales might suffer if people thought there was a problem with the game.
I don't have a problem loading. My problem is the game freezes at autosave points or when an "objective added " notice appears. I have seen "progre" on the screen and "objecti" on the screen at the moment of freeze. sometimes when i power off the ps3 or remove the disc (beep, beep, beep) the save file is corrupted and now says zero percent complete or if you check your saves you now find a save slot one, save slot 2 and a mysterious save slot 99 or ZERO- which doesn't even exist. i made copied of my save after a sucessful shut down and tried reloading those but somewhere along the line those seemed to have been bad saves also becuse all progress will end at the same point each time. Even if a deliberately start a level back, when i get to the same point I am finished. I have also tried deleting my GAME DATA file and reinstalling with no luck.
im glad im not the only one having this issue with this game. I bought the disk wouldn't work returned it and just now bought it off the PSN and still having the same issue, if you get any reply you have to let me know what they say
