i will give as many details as i can about my problem so maybe someone can give me a solution to it... so ive been trying to download a few games on my PS3 for a few days now, and i managed to download Shadow of the Colossus a few months ago, no problems... i saw 3 games on youtube that looked like fun, decided id give em a go, and since my PS3 has very few games, id use it... i bought Portal 2, Little Big Planet, and Quantum Conundrum... i started with LBP, no problems... then i went to Portal, again it all worked.... then i tried QC, and while installing i got the apparently famous 14% install error.... i had no idea what went wrong, but it was late, so i thought id fix it the next day... the next day, i tried redownloading it, but got the same error... i did a quick google search, found that many people have gotten this error over the years, and some had fixed it! i tried 3 possible solutions: download it, install it, create the corrupt data (thats the error), delete the install data not the corrupt data, redownload it, then install it, but this failed. download it on one user on the PS3, install it on another, but this also failed. then came the first all-or-nothing... reformat the PS3... i was skeptical, but i tried it... i payed for this game, i should be able to play it... i reformatted my PS3, and while strarting up, it had me download the PS store... i got the 14% install error on the store... i went through my PSN account to recent downloads, tried QC again, but got the same error... im trying my other games now, but i think i may have just screwed everything up by reformatting it... the final solution i found, was to just get a new PS3... that is over the top... youre telling me that a game i payed for on the official store cannot work on my PS3, and i need a new one to play it? make me buy a specific controller, or something little and fairly cheap, thats fine... but i need a console that is exactly the same, just a little newer? no... unless i can just trade my old one for the new one, im not getting a new one... thats ridiculous... so, does anyone know the real way to fix this issue?
