Deus Ex: HR Freezing System at START screen

[ Edited ]
25 replies 3643 views Edited Dec 21, 2013

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 :smileyhappy:.

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.

This happens to me on home sometimes, id suggest use another controller if you have one, when the ps3 locks, does the game still run?

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...

I've been having this same problem. I had to unplug my ps3 in order to get it running again from the freeze. I got so frustrated with this I moved onto other games. I'm hoping we get some sort of patch soon

Mine has also been doing that so I redownloaded the game, installed it and it worked fine.... For a day. It's back to doing it again.
