Need For Speed Rivals - TROTTLE NOT WORKING

[ Edited ]
33 Replies 10,816 Views edited 19-12-2013

I downloaded the latest need for speed game 2 days ago but when i get to the point of driving the car won't drive. I keep pressing R2 as the controls say that is the throttle but nothing happens. The R2 on both my controllers are working. I checked. Anyone else having this issue? Or should i download the whole 16G game again?

Happened to me too. You have to delete the game and redownload it and delete the patch. The patch is what causes the problem so when you redownload the game don't download the patch update, ONLY the game

Guys this is how the "acceleration bug" has been Fixed.

 

If you have started the game after the inital download (3gb) , let it download the complete game (17gb) it will work after that.

 

No need to delete any update or redownload, still if its not working delete the save file and start again after complete game gets downloaded (17gb).

Re: Need For Speed Rivals - TROTTLE NOT WORKING

I have tried this method and this seems to resolve the matter. Thank you.

 

This is unnacceptable for a premium launch title not to work. It speaks volumes for the lack of quality control and testing on the part of EA and worse still for the playstation store not withdrawing the title whilst the known problem is fixed. 

 

If you speak to Playstation they refer you to EA, considering the contract remains with Sony, and therefore they should be able to vet the quality of the product they sell, they dont bother, but nevertheless, £55 and a morning spent on the phone, seems to be the acceptable face of customer service. 

 

Perhaps my expectations are too high and I have the unrealistic demand that a game should be downloaded and working straight away, this is not a 69 pence app from the app store.

 

There will be a lot of disappointed children on Xmas day, and a lot of bemused parents that will have to go through this same hassle to get the game to actually work.

 

Lesson learned, thanks for the post!

Re: Need For Speed Rivals - TROTTLE NOT WORKING

I think thats a wee bit OTT  as inOMG I've got to wait for the game to FULLY download before playing it! I know sony have said you can start playing while a game is downloading so i can see your point, but it's not like the game is broken and wont work.
