I just put in the GoWA disc in to play the Last of Us demo, but my PS3 kept going black.
I got frustrated so I visited these forums and found out I was not the only one.
I read that I needed to boil the discs? That seemed a little too crazy, particularly that my discs are clean, so I instead:
- Game -> Game Data Utility -> Found any mention of God of War: Ascension (I found 3, including MP beta) -> Triangle -> Delete
(Make sure it is Game Data Utility you delete from so you don't lose any save files)
- Signed in with PSN (before launching disc)
- Launched game and got as expected an update prompt for 1.07 (previously had 1.03 installed)
- Download and install all updates
- Disc now boots up as normal
Edit: If you followed all these steps and still having trouble, eject disc, clean back of it, insert disc and should work fine!
I hope this helps anyone else experiencing this issue!
