But Naughty Dog, you made a fantastic game, a 93/100 game - but this doesn't show that. This doesn't show anything. I realize that you may be busy but from where I am, it seems that no one cares about this problem - it is all over the internet, on several different forums, regardless of Sony's ownership; and you haven't taken notice of it yet, 6 days into the game's release. This problem needs to be fixed, it is so infuriating and frustrating. I have barely been able to play this masterpiece because of the loading screen predicament. The problem will have adverse affects, eventually, then it will be noticeable.
I've already posted elsewhere before I saw this thread
*Hi. I've been playing uc3 since Tues with no probs, last night when I put in the disc it got to loading screen with the ring spinning around and it didn't go any further and I had to quit the game, eventually after 1hr 20m I got it to load and it played fine. Anyone have any ideas why this happened, because I'm not looking forward to it happening tonight. Cheers*
I've asked for help but its obvious the only people who can help are Naughty Dog, so my message to them is HELLLPPPP!
I'm having the same problems as others.
I played the game several times the first day without any problems. The next day the game will not load. It plays the screen with the spinning ring in the bottom right corner, but once it fades to black it sits on that screen indefinitely.
I copied my saved game over to another profile and tried it, but still would hang at the loading screen. I then went back to my regular profile and deleted my U3 profile at which point the game loaded correctly and I was able to once again play. When I was done playing I exited to the main menu of U3, at which time it froze up again and would not load. After a reboot I was once again unable to play the game.
I repeated the same steps as before and deleted my U3 profile data, but it still would not load using my existing saved game file. The only way I can play this game is if I constantly delete all of the U3 profile data and saved game data.
But I got the explorer's edition (Australia) and I don't really want to lug the box all the way back to get a refund on my game, thus losing all of my collectible stuff. And I have misplaced my receipt, unfortunately, so I can't even if I wanted to.
Naughty Dog/SONY should be dealing with it and by the sounds of it, they haven't. I really want to play this, it's been my most anticipated game of the year, as I'm sure is the case with many others.
Despite every other one of my PS3 games working without issue i have taken the decision to put my PS3 in to have a new Blu Ray fitted. It is 4 years old as its the original 60GB Fat version release here in the UK. If this doesn't work then i'll be really pi$$ed off. Quite frankly i am a bit miffed that i'm spending £90 to have this done anyway, but i figured since this is the only maintenance i've needed in 4 years then that's not too bad. I'm getting Skyrim delivered in a couple of days and it's essential for my life that i'm able to play that.
I'll post back here with an update as to whether the new blu ray has made a difference
