Cause for concern?

[ Edited ]

So I have 2 PS3s.  One at home and one at my office.  I recently bought Dues Ex Human Revolution.  I loaded the game into my PS3 at work.  It downloaded an update and then apparently it's a game that requires at least partial installation on the HD.

 

 Seemed to install fine.  I hit start and got to the menu screen to start a new game.  Chose new game and then it asked for difficulty level..Chose that no problem.  Then I hit "New Game."  It then appeared to be loading the start of a new game, but then just stuck on that screen.

 

 

The game tips were still scrolling across the bottom of the screen and stuff was moving around so it didn't appear to be completely frozen.  But I waited for about 10 mins and the game never started.  I had to actually unplug my PS3 to shut it down (quit game just put me at a complete black screen and never went back to the home screen).  Tried it twice and same thing happened. 

 

Brought the game home loaded into my home PS3.  Game worked perfectly fine.  What's the deal?  Should I be worried about the PS3 at work?  Haven't had any issues with it prior to this other than the fan running a bit loud at times.

 

Edit: Added line breaks

Happens sometimes when the HardDiskDrive gets cluttered with info all at once. The best thing to do in this situation is to hold/press the power button for 5-10 seconds until you see the green light blinking. Never unplug the console from the power cord as it could cause the system to malfunction and cause data corruption. If this isn't a recurring issue, you shouldn't worry about it.
