The same has happened to mine. I loaded it earlier today and it worked. Played the SP at the part where your with Bill and trying to get to the high school. The level didnt load at one point and I had to start the level over, it loaded fine afterwards. I then tried to play MP with a friend but I had to download my online pass again (deleted my game data), I exited out of the game and did so, tried to load the game back up and bam, it got stuck at the logo loading screen again.
Too bad no one seems to know an answer I mean there are some answers about another way of loading your game but I can't get past the first **bleep** loading screen. I had this same problem with Uncharted 2 but just after 10 retries it worked again but now it doesn't work no matter how many times. The disc is in perfect condition I played it yesterday! the game came with a bundle (Ps3 Super Slim + The Last of Us) And well its not mine my little brother bought his own ps3 and I wanted to play The Last of Us so bad before it even came out but I didn't had the chance to pick it up and now I can finally play and I played it for like 3 days straight loving it and I wanted to continue my adventure and I can't.. it just keeps loading
Man, the same is happening to me, but worse. It´s loading, but it takes toooo long, most of the sounds and spechs aren´t going and it´s really bad. After sometime it bugs and I literally can´t play, the game stucks. And I already bought Left Behind, but i reset my PS3 to try to solve the problem with the game and now I can´t download the DLC anymore...
Ive had the same problem, i borrowed the last of us from a friend of mine and it worked perfectly for 5 hours of the gameplay. Then the next day when i went to play it, it wouldnt load property. The spore screen stops at random points and when it does play the enviroments dont show up (mostly the insides of buildings), and the disc looks warped on the bottom. Someone please help i really dont want to tell my friend ive broke her game she'll kill me!!!
This is complete **bleep**! I bought the game last year and even bought the DLC. I have beat the game about 3 times, and the DLC once. I even played online numerous of times. When I go to play again it gets stuck loading. I honestly think that its no coincidence that a lot of ps3 players are having this problem. i bet the ps4 players dont have this problem at all. this is so messed up!!!!!!!!
Try to delete any updates you may have installed for The Last of Us. I borrowed this game from a friend tonight, and when i loaded the Main story, it froze at his birthday scene. I closed the app a couple times and could not get it to load, it would just stick in between cut scenes and i could hear music. I rememberd i had an update that i downloaded. So i deleted all my application data (you dont have to delete in game save data, just application data) and it is working now. Also, disconnect from the network while playing so you do not get prompted to update the game. Hope this helps
Same for me, but a little diferent.
Bought this game a month ago. At "Highway Exit", one glitch prevents me to go forward, so I´m stuck in single player campaign.
Now, every time I try to load in this particulary phase, the game stays loading forever the save game.
I played 2 times. First time, I delete all save games, all downloaded content, rebuilt the file system and database for the PS3, cleaned the disk.
Played all once again, and in the begining of "Highway Exit", everything comes again: audio is delayed or inaudible, and pressing triangle doesn´t trigger the conversations or actions between Ellie and Joel, and so is impossible to continue (Ellie needs to throw a ladder for Joel).
I have 3 or 4 save games in Highway Exit. No ones loads. And now????
Physical disc, no scratches.
