Socom 4 Unplayable

15 replies 477 views Edited Aug 28, 2012

Picked up Socom 4 the other day. When I put it in my system it got stuck at 99% on 1 of 4 updates. Tried to do it again, waiting 30 min. Again at 99% update 1 of four. I tried this 7 times. I got two more days before my 7 days are up to return it. I would love to play it but can't. ALL my other games work fine with updates.

Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

yeah, you need to first install the game whithout installing the patch. (abort every time it ask for the update)

that mean being offline (not connected on PSN)

 

then when the game is fully installed, you can upgrade it, this should work.

So you mean I have to disconnect my internet from my PS3, put in the disk and then rehook up my internet connection?

Sounds a lil wonky, but ill give it a try.

no.

 

just disconect from PSN and do not allow to connect.

you can disconnect from psn by hitting triangle on the first (top) icon of the PSN menu

 

(disable auto connect if enabled)

OP, I hope you managed to install S4 properly.

Usually you can cancel an update by just pressing circle when it first pops up, there wont be a a prompt for it showing but it's always worked for me.

Thank you all for your input. I tried every way last night, and nothing worked. I went to gamefaqs board and saw that their were a lot of people experiencing the same problem. Needless to say I returned it today. Looks like I will not be playing Socom. But hey, I got battlefield 3 instead. Hope to see some of you online. Look me up - Kaliforniapop.

Again, thanks for all of your inputs.
