I...uh...what?

Gimmie a minute to try to comprehend whatever it is that you just said.

Why would you take out the disc while installing when it says in big bold letters "DO NOT TURN OFF THE GAME OR CONSOLE" or whatever?

he forgot to add a period after "act 4".

anyway, is it the regular version of MGS4 or the Greatest Hits?

there was an issue with the regular version of MGS4 where some of the games would do this, there doesnt seem to be a fix for it or work around that i know of.

This issue is also happening to me. I have an original MGS4 Disk and when the ACT4 is loading it crashes to XMB.

The only fix I found for that was using a UNLOCKED PS3. I don't have the intention to ever unlock my PS3 system and I'd like to have an official answer from SONY to this issue.

 

It seems that the patches that were applied (maybe to the lame Thophy system) messed up with the game.

 

So, I think we, the rightful owners of original MSG4 copies need an answer from SONY regarding this issue that pretty much cuts the game in half!

 

Just to clarify, I already tried to started with a previous save and go over again with no success. I wait for the system to crash and I don't turn off the system while the PS3 is thinking... So, please, I ask to all the users to not come back with useless comments, ok?

 

I hope that someone at SONY is looking into those threads and notice that MSG4 is currently UNPLAYABLE after ACT3 end.

 

Looking forward to a solution from you SONY!

 

Thanks!

Why would we "need an answer from Sony", especially considering that Kojima Productions/Konami made the game? And no, support doesn't "fall to Sony" by default.

Delete your saved data and game data. The latest 2.0 patch does not allow for play over old save files with the new trophies.

Latest patch included all d/led camos, songs, trophies. Also allows for complete install of all acts (finally), which everyone

should do.
