PS3 wont read disc... common problem for many I see and ME

#1tglennfan83Posted 3/18/2013 12:15:56 PM
Got a copy for my slim 160 gig ps3 and it wouldn't load the disc. Returned the copy and got another copy and the same thing happened. Anyone know any cure for this or is it happening to them? Other games work fine, I'm going to try to play gow3 and then switch back to ascention real quick like someone suggested but I dont have a bunk ps3 it's clearly something in the disc if many people are having the same problem.

Thanks

p.s my system is up to date and everything like that

I think the other post I read on this said they had a 160gb slim, is it always the 160gb slim? I have no problems with my 320gb slim aside from the odd sound skip/delays sorry I don't know more.

I have a 160 gig slim(500 gig hd in it) and no problems playing Ascension.I haven't heard about this issue and I doubt it's that common.

If you google it the playstation message board will come up with at least a dozen people ranging from 160 gigs to 500 gb consoles that have not been reading their god of wars. That's pretty common to me, just think of the others who dont post about it.

i got a 120 gig slim and the same issues

i took my copy of the game back to gamestop and exchanged it, and the new one dont play either

i got a place near me that fixes consoles, and i'm gunna get a new laser installed to remedy this. $100 down the drain because of this bull****

Maybe there are faulty batches of the disk? It could be that taking it back and swapping it isn't working because you are getting another from the same batch?

The last 80GB fatty with 500GB Samsung HDD. Working fine.

I wish you good luck solving this.

This is very possible.

its a sign your lens is dying....sorry to tell you guys. This is how it starts...soon it will be more and more games that your ps3 will have trouble reading. Sometimes its quick sometimes it will take awhile for things to get worse.


You see these complaints all the time with all games, just more noticable with more popular games. Its not the game thats creating the issue its your ps3.
