What's the dealy-yo ?

9 replies 31 views Edited Jun 4, 2003

Okay so whats the deal with vice city screwing up ps2's ??? When I play vice city it screws up royally by freezing after about 15 minutes of gameplay.  Granted, I use cheats but I hear people on here also complaining about vice city screwing up their ps2 even not using cheats.  So lastnight I tested another game to see if it would screw up and it didn't. I don't know if I was just lucky or what, but if I need to  have my ps2 serviced for whatever reason I want to do it soon while it's still under warranty, which I think it is.

Damn you  Vice City !!!  But you rock anyway !

Freakin' Sweet !

I've heard that using cheats will wreck your game and GTAIII I used cheats and the graphics would drop so there was only my car driving nowhere and it would freeze occasionally. I didn't use cheats on Vice City, well maybe a couple times but anyway I have'nt had a problem at all will VC.

I was getting freezups and a disk read error with this game, it seems the ps2 does not like blue backed disks.  The game was unplayable for me untill I bought a $10 DVD cleaner from Endust, ran it through and in about a minute the game was perfect and hasnt frozen once.  Make sure you get  a DVD cleaner not a CD cleaner

I used tons of cheats and I would play hours on end, never locked up.
