To those with technical issues, post here and let's try to get it fixed.

I have seen several forum topics about people that are having freezing and other technical issues.  I am unfortunately one of those people.  Let's all post our problems here with our system specs and what point in the game our problems occurred so that the developers might be able to get a handle on this issue and resolve it.  I'll go first.

 

Old style fat PS3 with 40 GB Hard Drive

 

I did install the update when the game started.

 

I played for approximately 8 hours with sound skipping issues throughout however my game did not freeze until very late in the game.  (SPOILERS AHEAD)  My game froze right after I pulled Shaun out of the storm drain.  Now my save file appears to be corrupted and won't load.  I get the image of Shaun's face on the loading screen and then the screen just goes blank and nothing happens.

I seriously hope they do something about this...

nope you can't backup your gamesave thanks to the game developers, anyways still waiting for a patch to remove the copy protection and sort out the bugs, i haven't touched the game yet till these bugs are sorted out.

Another corrupt save here. I'm trying to continue the "on the loose" chapter. Black screen, can't quit, can't do anything. See the guy's face, screen goes black, nothing.

 

UK Special Edition, 40GB PS3. Waited until the save was complete and returned to main menu (heck, I even watched of the extras) before turning the console off.

 

Patch that doesn't involve replaying the whole game to that point or refund, please.

250GB Slim, UK, HDMI output (720p, 5.1PCM)

 

Until my save file was corrupted, only had 1 minor issue, which was occasional A/V sync problems. And one section of dialogue appeared to be totally lost (assuming it wasn't deliberate) at the end of the scene where Shelby and Lauren were going through names.

 

The corruption event was similar to others described above.

 

Just finished On the Loose, with Ethan arrested. Norman's face came up, then the screen went blank after maybe 30 seconds.

 

A pattern of flashing HDD activity seemed to repeat over and over continuously. After a couple of minutes, I started hitting buttons. Select, Start and the PS button all worked. That satisfied me that it wasn't totally crashed, so I let it be another couple of minutes.

 

Then I gave up, and exited back to the main menu. Tried again by hitting continue. Same behaviour face for a while, then continuous HDD activity.

 

Went back to main menu, quit game, reloaded, continue, same behaviour.

 

Shut down the system, rebooted, reloaded, continued, and I think it was at this point it switched to the lock-up.behaviour - immediate black screen, only a short burst of HDD activity, then total freeze with no buttons working except the power button (after a while with 3 beeps).

 

Chapter list shows chapters up to On the Loose, but can't load them. Load Game shows this save game as "Under Arrest", which may have been where it was when I loaded the game that session it died.

 

I can start a new game, but I'm not going to attempt to play again until I can be confident that file won't be corrupted.

 

Quantic Dream, please do you best to make sure a patch can load these saved games. Hopefully they're just slightly corrupted, or it's a load problem, not a save problem.

EU 80gb fat PS3

bought 01/01/09

playing on 40' sony tv, with 5.1 sound on a sony amp (problems persist regardless of sound output however)

 

Initially played with patch installed, and then mall cutscene starting freezing with sound going out of sync.

Uninstalled patch by deleting game data. Worked fine until the first crime scene with jaden where my sound is now dropping very regularly and some freezing and stalling in cutscenes. I came back to it the next day with identical problems, so i tried installing the patch again and if anything the problem has gotten worse.

 

I refuse to play on until these issues have been fixed as I could easily miss out on important dialogue, plus i really shouldn't have to play it like this. I dished out €50 for the collectors edition on day 1 so i could start playing immediately and now i'm being prevented from doing so. Needless to say i am not happy at all, and if the problem isn't fixed soon, i'll be returning this to the store

Dear Quantic Dream,

 

Got to chapter 5 "trapped" and the load file is now corrupt, and won't load any chapter from the game.  After having to force a power off my ps3 has just sent flashes to my tv a few times when trying to turn it on.  It seems to be working properly now, but I haven't tested it enough.

 

Besides this glitch i've had the game freeze at the end of jayden's first crime investigation scene, A glitch which gave me no options when i sat down in ethan's drafting table, so i couldn't get up or draw, and had to restart. Another glitch that teleported ethan to the drafting table everytime i pressed "down" for the entirety of the scene, and got him half stuck in the geometry of the table.

 

IT IS NOT OK TO CHARGE YOUR CUSTOMERS FOR BETA TESTING!

 

Just because Bethesda does this, doesn't mean its okay for you to do it.

 

I appreciate QD's attempt to appeal to the rising age in the average video game player - but you have to realize that this demographic also has a lot of responsibilities.  We don't have time to play through the game multiple times because you decided to skimp on QA. 

 

I will not be purchasing any more of quantic dream's products because of these issues, and if you really must play their games i enourage you buy used, so as not to support this practice.

 

Also what is the reason for not being able to copy your save game files? I have two playstations and i want to be able to bring my save games with me - and there is no reason i shouldn't be able to with this game.

 

Sincerely,

Lost Fan

Thanks to Quantic Dream for not letting me finising the game now because I get the black screen and I try everything. Even when I select a chapter I still get that black screen. I'm so mad about this. They better bring a fixed out as soon as possible so some of us can play and finished the game. So for me I'm stuck with a game which Is half completed and I can't carry on until this problem Is resolved.

(SPOILERS AHEAD)

When I get to the police station after losing shaun, first the sound cuts off completly, but I'm still able to play for like 1 min, when I move the main caracter's leg that's when my game freezes completly, if I don't do anything it will freeze but 1 minute later. Everytime I restart it does the same thing. So I installed the 230Mb or so patch and it didnt change anything, I'm still having the same issues.

(END SPOILERS)

 

My PS3 is the Metal gear solid bundle with 80Gb, unmodified.

well sorry if this is similar to everyone else

 

i played quite a bit of it,i was reckoning i got maybe 3 quarters way through..and when i came to reload my continue it would not load,nor the chapter before it...it was just a black screen..deleted the patch,tried again,black screen....redownloaded the patch tried again,black screen....and i really don't like having to reboot my PS3 each time,i feel as though its damaging the PS3

 

i wasn't really enjoying it that much anyway(story and graphics was great,i was just not liking the gameplay),but its still disappointing when this happens,i loved Fahrenheit,but this has put me off buying the next Quantum Dreams game on day one...i wish Developers would test their games before release and not have to rely on themselves bringing a patch out
