BLACK SCREEN! The Woods [No Spoilers]

7 replies 228 views Edited Jun 15, 2013

Okay, so I got The Last of Us yesterday and was having fun playing story mode/multiplayer, I was jumping back and fourth every so often. I started to get into story mode hardcore a few minutes ago. I got to "The Woods" and I was the part where you running away with someone Joel meets. I enter the door and a cutscene triggers. I press pause and the menu pops up, I can choose to skip the cutscene but with no luck, It freezes my PS3. I can access the XMB but as soon as I try to quit it locks my PS3. I would appreciate the help/advice anyone can give me. I tried deleting the Day 1 Update and even the Game Data itself with no luck.. Help me? (:

I have this problem at EVERY cinematic, try turning subtitles on, this was working for me to help get past the black screen but cutscenes are still unwatchable. Doing this will allow you to skip without your ps3 freezing up, well it did for me anyway. Now it isn't working and I'm resorting to choosing skip movie at the black screen and mashing the xmb button until it responds, sometimes it takes 5 minute, sometimes 15 minutes maybe longer... Btw, I have a 320gb slim ps3 and I'm on my second disc of the game, both had the same problem.

Tried all that and it still doesn't work, I even tried to play the game offline and that doesn't help either. I'm slightly aggitated at the game itself for not working because I was getting really into when this happened Smiley Frustrated

 

Edit: I guess no one has a fix for this? Multiplayer it is for now..
