I'm having issues with the playstation completely shutting down after just a few minutes of play. This is not while playing on the internet or multiplayer. It is SINGLE player mode. I have a fat 60gb ps3. The DISK IS CLEAN, by that I mean no smudges, spots, scratches, or even lint. I have tried recleaning the clean disk. My ps3 software version is 4.21 and I have exchanged this game several times. I'm on my 3rd copy. I am not even attempting to play this online. All other games play just fine for hours and I can't even run this one long enough to get warm let alone overheat. My nephews have been trying to play this now for 2 weeks in single player mode, telling me that most of the issues and their "fixes" that I have been reading on the forums have been for multiplayer functions. So I want to be perfectly clear that I cannot play this in single player mode without the system crashing every few minutes. It completely crashes NOT FREEZES. Can anyone tell me what is wrong? I would appreciate that very much.
(Oh and how was that for detail? lol)
fat 60gb (1st gen). I can't even START to play UC2. It never gets past spinning dagger. No title screen, no nothing. I let it do that for an hour just to make sure it wasn't installing something like on MGS4. I tried with and without 1.09 patch. NOTHING. During one attempt, I push PS button while the dagger is spinning. When I push it again to get rid of XMB, it has the thinking halo thing in the top right corner and doesn't go away. Must eject disc. When I select Quit game from XMB, it thinks for about 10 seconds, then PS3 beeps and restarts. So there is a definite hangup.
I tried with internet connection enabled and disabled. Same results.
Please I don't want any replies saying clean my disc. That is totally unhelpful.
