My The Last of Us pre-order just arrived...

8 replies 279 views Edited Jun 20, 2013
...and it becomes the only game in my library that my PS3 doesn't read. All other games I own work fine.

It seems that I'm having the same issue as others that own the 120GB Slim. I've tried tilting as some have suggested, but maybe I'm doing it wrong because it's not working.

Any help? I usually don't pre-order games, but placed my faith in Naughty Dog, and now this happens Smiley Sad Help ;(

I had the same problem. Uncharted 3 wouldn't work, neither would Blu-Ray movies, it got to the point to where almost nothing would ever work, except DVDs. There seem to be 3 solutions. Buy a new PS3, buy a new disc drive, or send it into Sony. 

 

I bought a new PS3.

A new disk drive is easy to replace

But not cheap. 

 

At least not from my experience. I had the fat 80GB (original with 4 USB ports) and my Blu Ray Drive went out about a month after warranty expired and it was going to cost $160 to replace. I just bought a slim instead.

A disk drive is roughly 60 dollars ( I have to replace mine) I wouldn't recommend buying a new ps3 right now if your planing on a ps4

So the solution would be spending more money to be able to play a single game? >_<

At this point I don't want to buy a new PS3, I already pre-ordered the PS4...

So every other game works with your PS3, just not your new TLoU?

 

If this is the case, I would first exchange your copy of TLoU for a new one from the retailer you bought it from.

 

If the replacement still will not work with your PS3, then I would replace the blu-ray lens of your drive.  They can be had for about $20 to $30.  If you are not confident that you can replace the lens, then replace the drive as discussed above.

If a PS3 game doesn't work in a PS3, its not your responsibility to pay for a fix.

If your console is no longer covered by warranty, then yeah, you have to pay for a fix... it sucks, but that's how it is.

 

That's why I advise some people to buy it from the PS store instead.
