You should try "Safe Mode" and the "restore file system" option.

Try safe mode as JERM7 said it should work then.

Ps3 Is the best console, the best hardware and a much better looking console too!

i will confirm however that the game data is deleting just super-super-slow. this makes the Dead Island mess look tame!

most likely some know-it-all tried some new and improved method of having the game access data faster. i guess it didn't turn out as expected eh?

What was the problem you were having with the corrupted data? Was it just corrupted or was it just taking a long time to delete?

If you want to play the game, then delete the corrupted data and run the game again to reinstall the game data.

edit: large game data take a very long time to delete. Let it finish.
