Unfortunetly, I don't have a solution for you. If you look hard enough there are quite a few of people out there with similar issues... I'm one of them. The only thing I've heard is that it is a system performance issue. I've heard of such issues miraculously fixing themselves after a firmware patch. Keep calling, and keep posting.
Dear Naughty Dog,
So many of us have the same problem: We buy the game, it doesn't work in the PS3. All our other games work fine in our PS3s. We exchange the game. Still doesn't work. Once opened, we can't return the game, so we are out of luck. How can you help us. And yes, my PS3 is also up to date and, hey, have I mentioned before that all my other games work?
I just encountered this problem tonight and I'm really bummed. I played 20+ hours prior to this happening, so why NOW, I have no idea.
Been looking all over the net for fixes, and all I'm finding are similar solutionless situations.
The ONLY game I can get to work surprisingly is Metro: Last Light. When I pop the non-working discs into our other PS3, every disc loads up beautifully, and this is after the newest sytem update and it's the current, redesigned, PS3 Slim model. I have the Slim CECH-2001A model from 2010.
I doubt they will fix this for us. I just really want to play TLOU some more. Was working on my Survivor playthrough.
im having a similar problem, im on copy #2 from Game Stop. I was so excited about this game that i paid in full pre-ordered it a year ago and have been counting the days till release. So i picked my first copy up and when i put it in my console it took forever to load then when it finally started the opeaning movie scene, the game starts acting like a corrupt data disc. Stopping and starting, pixie lines squares all over the picture, half screen, no sound, then sound but like with a 25 sec lag, and that is when u can see the movie. So i paused it and it buffered then worked for bout 25 sec then started over. **bleep**!!!!!! Its crazy that a game that is PS3 exclusive is having this many problems the day of launch and no patch( that i know of) has been released to fix this issue. If anyone can help please do so. My GT is avenged79, if u know anything that can help hit me up.
My Slim had this problem with reading dual layer discs so i had the lens replaced. Working fine now
I would like to mention that it isn't specifically a dual layer disc issue. My PS3 has no issue playing dual layer discs except for TLOU.
Multiple posts on same issue for quite a few games lol. I mentioned on different post about the issue for the slim slide top, Start with Video bd/dvd off, turn off ps3, turn it back on, then set that setting to normal or full screen, insert the disc thats pissin u off, last of us, god of war, list go's on. It should read. Also this is for playing on Non HD. I never had a problem with HD. If you remove the game, you will have to repeat the process, it works for me almost everytime. Never tried it with front loader ps3. Somone could try & post to say if it works for them. Good Luck
