Uncharted 3 Spinning Ring Cannot Play Game

16 replies 1046 views Edited Aug 29, 2013

Okay so I purchased Uncharted 3 today because I played the first two games and thought I could play this game without a hitch.

Turns out I was wrong. So here's my dilemma.

I put the disc and it loaded up till I got to the screen that said download update. So I downloaded the update and then the ring kept spinning around.

I looked around forums and forums for a fix and I found a couple some said delete the game data and the patch so I did. Others said play another game.

Which happens to be Uncharted 2.

It's the only game I have now. Though when I went back to 3 nothing happened. I tried going into safe mode of my PS3 by holding down the button twice so it comes on and off on and off. Though it just took me to the menu. I even emailed Naughtydog about it. 

 

Now really what can I do? Is the game just a lost cause?

Give the ring at most 10 minutes. I have that problem myself. I assume it's also like the dust particles in TLoU, but at least there's a visible percentage.

See if it loads in ten minutes. Maybe like 5 since I overestimate time. Watch a Friends rerun for a while.

I'll try what you said on another forum I got suggested to disconnect my PS3 from the Internet and then try. So I'll do both. If it doesn't do anything though I'll probably give up on it. Though I really wanted to play I liked the first two games and I really wanted to play the third.

That doesn't sound familiar, what screen do you mean and when does it pop up?

It's probably the patch screen.

I'm still not sure the patch screen appears before the game starts and has no ring right?

Correct. I deleted the patch though and now when I try to install 1.17 again my ps3 beeps twice and then goes black on my TV screen.

Hielke the patch screen pops up before the ring. it happens when you first Put the game in. After that finishes the ring shows up.
