Just purchased deus ex human revolution yesterday on 11/24/12 and after the 3 hour download, hour long install, i am happy to finally play it. When I launch the game, it gets to the "PRESS START" screen, when i do press start, it locks up the system so bad that I actually have to unplug the PS3 from the wall. Out of all the years of owning the PS3, I've never had this problem with any game.
I currently own the PS3 Slim, got rid of my fatty bout a year and a half ago, not due to problems, just wanted the sleaker model .
Anyone else having this problem or have had this problem? For the record, I had uninstalled the game and all addons completely twice and reinstalled them, this is the 3rd install and still same exact place it locks up when i press start.
Edit: Tidied, shortened thread title
If it was the PS3, all my games would have a problem, not just this one. I have over 40 Digital games on the PS3 and none give me any problems, once in awhile maybe after playing BL2 for 15+ hours straight I may have to reboot the system, but it still don't lock up at all. Its not the PS3, the disc version of this game was riddled with bugs and glitches that have gone unpatched.
You could have a bad/corrupt installation. That doesn't sound normal at all. Do a thorough test with more games and, after assuring that the problem is isolated to DXHR, try re-downloading it, or at least, re-installing it...also, make sure that it downloads on a single shot, do not power down your PS3 in the middle of the download. That's to assure you download a clean, uninterrupted copy of the game. If it does not change, then repairing the file system of the PS3 might do something for you...
