Is anyone else having problems with I Am Alive causing the PS3 to crash

Evening all,

I downloaded I Am Alive this afternoon and played on it for around 20 minutes at 5.30pm tonight with no problems..........

But now when I try and play it crashes before the game loads with a battery symbol flashing in the top left corner of screen.....Therefore I have to reset the PS3

 

BTW one of my friends on PSN has encountered the same problem aswell whilst trying to play it.

 

Has anyone else had the same problem?

 

Cheers

I have! Downloaded the trial, worked fine. Bought the code, and now it crashes on the battery flash. I'm redownloading it to see if that remedies it, but scouting the internet, others have had the problem too

I'm having the same problem.

 

It'd be one thing if it was a random bug that prohibited my progress on occasion, but, this bug actively prohibits me from even seeing the start menu.

 

I'd like my money back.

Yes, I am having the same issue.  I thoughty my ps3 was done! (Got the battery screen, crashed, hard disk check...).  It bothers me that you guys told them about this YESTERDAY, it's not fixed yet, and then they LET ME BUY IT ANYWAY.  Someone tell me when it's safe to play the game I paid for.:Thumbs:

Try booting up and playing the game signed out of PSN guys, I haven't tried it but it has worked for games with similar issues in the past.

I just bought it and i have the same problem. The fact that they know about the issue and won't pull the game is Effin ridiculous. If i knew i wouldn't bother.

Thanks fksi,

 

I have tried your method and it has loaded without crashing,

 

also last night by trial and error I managed to get the game to load when I deleted the cache in the PS3 before loading the game (unfortunately I'm not technically minded so don't understand why this would have helped it to play)

 

I have just emailed a report to the tech guy at Ubisoft so I will post back here if I get a response.

 

cheers :Thumbs:

I can't tell you anything about the gamecrashes, but i've got a slightly different problem with this game.

I bought it today from the PSN store, but all i can download is the trial version of the game.

When i press "get the full version" ingame it says "you can't buy something at the moment".

I payed for this game, so i want the full version and not just a trial oO

read about this on gamefaqs (i bought the game yesterday).

 

Did any of you guys have any downloads going on in the background (off the store)?.

 

Apparently this was causing it for a few people.

@ Cielarus.

 

If you've bought the game you should be able to download it from your download list in your account manager. You should also be able to re download it from the download list in the top right of the screen on the Playstation Store.

@ Lum26:

 

thx for the hint. i'll try this, but the only option in my DL-list says "I Am Alive (Trial)".  I don't think it'll work, but i give it a try.

Yes, I am having problems too. Flashing battery in top right corner if I am lucky then nothing. Hold power button reset is the only thing that works. Then I have to check the file system on the PS.

 

I am DL other games in the background. Proper amateur release!! Saddened.

I had the same issue. From what i can tell its to do with the inability of the ps3 to multitask. much like it takes hours to install games when you are downloading stuff.. the game has trouble loading in the same way. pause all your downloads before running the game and it should run with no problem

Hello

 

I've got the same issue, but found a workaround elsewhere, sorry con't remember where.

 

Press PS after the second battery flash to bring up the XMB.  The game may still not load but at least you can quit without having to restart your PS3. Rinse and repeat. It usually loads on the third go for me.
