I would be inclined to believe this if it wasn't for the fact that I can easily play Dead Island, Rage, Saint's Row The Third, Warhammer 40K Space Marine etc without the slightest problem. This is the first - and thus far only - game I have purchased for my PS3 where I have been having this problem. I cannot be the only person here who that's true for, I've already seen others who have stated this is the first time they've had this problem. So one must conclude its a flaw with the game, not the machine.
And if it is indeed the case where my PS3 is out of date, then I will not be buying consoles after this because I have a computer I can just upgrade over time so that I can continue to game. When I buy a console, I expect it to play every game released for it throughout it's lifespan, period.
My unit is the 40gb Gunmetal MGS ldt edition.
I experience non loading to the next level after winning events in story mode.
Online matchmaking not working consistently.
Sweet Tooth drives Mr Grimms vehicle...Oh wait.
I called the service number on the inside cover of the manual and talked to an operator. She had me delete all the data files for the game and then ran the system file restore option (which just searches for corrupt files). This did not help, it still restarted as soon as I got to the game's menu screen.
Now Sony is sending me instructions on how to return the game to them and get a new copy (I bought it from Amazon).
