i have a PS3 slim, I just cant load this particular game, this is my second disc, it asks for an update of 512mb, once the update completes, i start the game there is a black screen, then i hear a double beep and my PS3 restarts.
i have tried everything in safe mode, all the freaking options, nothing helped.
all other games work flawlessly
Yeah i bought a super slim and i tried to start mgs4 and then the black screen appears after i try to update.
i also hear the double beep and it restarts.
my copy of mgs4 is the original not the platinum.
This is seriously annoying, PS3 just wont play this game, PS3 support cant help, they are asking me to call Konami, WTH ?... i wonder how come this game got good ratings when you cant even play the freaking game ...
When the new slim was released sony made series of games for the new slim called PS3 essentials.
I would've figured that mgs4 could of been on that list but it isn't.
It should be part of the ps3 essentials later on in the future of hope.
I never experience any of the issues you guys have described here.
I own a copy of the first release of MGS4 Guns of the Patriots which I played & finished on my old PS3 60GB. With the MGS4 patch 2.0 update that includes trophies and the capability of fully installing all the game data to HDD, I once again am playing MGS4 but this time on my PS3 Slim.
DDjDemon, in a case like the one you are having, I would recommend deleting all the game data under Game/Game Data Utility and reinstall it again, but given that you already tried all the options under Safe Mode... Tell me, how did it feel to reformat your whole system HDD?
