I have heard of quite a few people who have this glitch. Someone also has a video posted. I hope ND sees this and does something to fix this bit. It could also be due to some sort of an incompatibility with a particular model of the PS3.
If you have a friend who has a PS3 try it on there to see if its the same result, just to check and if possible.
That's going to be my next move. I currently have a PS3 slim. I've heard of issues with the Fat but how do you developed a game that isn't compatible with all versions of the system? I mean at least take it into consideration and test it. Make us aware prior to release. I understand game development isn't clean cut and there are many variables that could affect the experience, but the oversight causes the consumer to (quite literally) pay for it in the end.
i have the 160GB slim, purchased 2010. I actually got it to load up and i thought i was good to go but then screen went blank and it just did nothing. Had to quit via XMB. My other games work fine, it seems my system doesnt like this game. Im exchanging disk today and hoping it works but im doubting it will. Looks like im out $91. Never again will i get something on day of release. If i had read about these issues, i would have passed. Oh well.
i just cleaned my ps3, same thing happens. the pausing and the stretching of the character models are still happening, also the audio is still out of sync
I'm quite positive that these issues has to do with software and not hardware. Based on the fact, that my game reacts differently dependent on whether it's 1.00 or 1.01. Can't be hardware.
