PS3 slim won't play some games

26 Replies 9,507 Views Created 09-09-2010

Hi - i'm having trouble getting my PS3 slim to play some games. The machine is about 8 months old and has been working fine but about 4 weeks ago (I think) it started to not want to read some games that i've recently got (which aren't new titles).

 

It still plays blu rays, the old games that i've got, goes onto the store site etc and is upgraded to 3.42 but i'm at a real loss as to what to do. I've been trying to read on forum's about this but other problems seem to be a total non playing of games due to a faulty laser but as i can play some i'm not sure if my laser is on the way out or if its something else ?!?!

 

Any and all help needed. Thanks

It isn't a virus, why would the PSN have a virus on it? The Portal warning screen you press X to get past it if I'm not mistaken.

just bought batman arkham city the other day and uncharted 3 not that long ago and even swapped uncharted at gamestop. but to no avail as they wont load. figure something was wrong with system did every safe mode option and it didnt fix squat. however, bought infamous from walmart and it loads fine as well as all of my other games,dvd, etc. its as frustrating as it is curious and well i'd like to know if anyone has a solution before i buy the same games from a different store or call sony?

It could be your hard drive try and swap it for an old laptop hard drive and see if your game loads then and if it does then phone sony and tell them your hard drive is failed
