  1. what about if i replace my hard drive, will that do the trick?
  2. seriously, fuck this game, especially the ps3 version. i've had my ps3 for 4 years and played many games, some very demanding to the console like gta5. but evil within has pretty much broken my ps3. never before had i had so many crashes as i had with this game. especially the stupid 'checkpoint' and 'saving' prompts displayed, those make me nervous because even a button press while that is shown can freeze and crash the console. then when turning it on, upon trying to do a restore, it gets stuck, which means restarting my ps3 from scratch again. i've done this so many times for this game it has really pissed me off. this is the only time i had to pay to use PS plus to upload my saves incase it happens again and lo and behold, it does. FUCK THIS GAME. it causes the ps3 to crash so much that its wrecked my hard drive and console. upon resetting the ps3 to factory settings for the nth time, and trying to play the game to finish up trophies, i get stuck on 'loading profile'. it does nothing. then it crashes. i hate this version of the game SO much the god damned developers should have tested this!!
  3. my ps3 is working again, though i dont trust it anymore. back to playing games..
  4. i left my console and came back and noticed i was able to go into safe mode menu now. but then, upon trying to restore the file system, it is now going through this - really, painfully slow. i mean 11% done in 4 hours. it might be awhile until my ps3 gets healthy again. i dont know what happened with the update.
  5. i want to try and fix my ps3. is it a good idea to take out the hard drive and format it? i was thinking of extracting the hard disk, put it in a caddy, connect it to my pc by usb, format it fully (fat32), place it back in the ps3, get a usb stick ready with folders ps3 > update, pasting the latest update in there, connect to usb, switch on, and hopefully its a simple process of restoring it? i dont care if i lose my saves, i just want to get it to work again. i have a 320gb slim model, cech-2503b opinions?
  6. guess what? after SIX hours of leaving it on overnight, having woke up this morning to check... it's STILL at 99%. i've given up. my ps3 is fked. how do i replace the hard drive? is it a matter of buying one of those small hard drive boxes and switching it over? will i run into the same problem? otherwise i think i'll just get another ps3 off ebay and sell this one as spare parts. what do you guys think? i've had this ps3 for over 4 years. unfortunate this has happened.
  7. 5 mins? been over 2 hours here and nothing. i have rebooted it again and this time have the update on usb, its again stuck at 99% for me. i'm going to sleep now so will leave this on overnight. i just hope it'll work come the morning otherwise i'm throwing this out of the window. i wish it WAS just 5 mins!
  8. ruins your ps3
  9. now stuck at 99% for two hours now. tried contacting playstation through twitter and they were unable to help, their suggesting is to send it in for repair, but i cant even do that on their useless site as i get thrown in a circle clicking one thing to the next ad back to the start again. i really dont know what else to do if i was to take the hard disk out, i wouldnt know what to do with it. how do i even connect it to the pc and what am i supposed to do? going to leave the ps3 on overnight ad hope itll be ok in the morning. i doubt it though. maybe turning it off and on may have scrambled the file or something
  10. well earlier this week i had to do just that. my ps3 crashed and i went into safe mode, selected option 5 which resets the ps3 to factory start settings, and it worked perfectly fine. i didnt care about losing game or save data. but now, i come across this. i did some googling and there was this video on youtube which suggested doing this over and over and eventually it'll fix itself. i admit i found it dodgy but got worked up that i followed it. i guess i'll leave it now and just hope it'll install. if i have to 'wipe out all data in the console', how do i do that? normally you'd go to safe mode and select option 5 to wipe out everything and start fresh?
  11. christ sake its stuck at 99 again!! if i switch it on and turn it on itll go straight to this installing update page, counting from 0, 1, 2... and then gets stuck at 99% again. i might have to leave this on overnight and hope for the best. do sony even test their updates??? this is annoying as i left early from work today hoping to enjoy some more game time but instead wasted it on this stupid update nonsense
  12. well mine got stuck again at 99 so powered down by holding down the on/off button this time. i downloaded the update and put it on usb. switched the ps3 on normal without holding it down and now its gone into safe mode again and goes straight to installing update without even downloading/acknowledging the usb update. i'm stuck in a circle, it seems! if it gets stuck again i think i might leave it overnight. mind you when it was counting up to 99 there was no orange light
  13. https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/system-updates/ps3/ anyone else having this problem? wanted to play on my ps3 and it prompted it to do this update. downloaded it and its stuck in the installing, at 99%. been waiting for over 30 minutes now. pulled the plug and launched in safe mode where it goes to the install again. and again now stuck at 99%. is there a solution to this?
  14. i just completed this game and loved it. its simple, not too long, not over embellished with pointless collectibles, and the story was well done. and the DLC was even better. it just goes to show how games go in the opposite direction, making it a chore and not fun to play. this game was good fun to play. i really enjoyed it. its better than outlast 2 and any survival horror i played (RE4 is more horror adventure than survival). the only criticism i have is the lack of a platinum trophy, but thats it! i wish games would look at this as an example of how simplicity can still be effective and make a good game.
  15. 26. grabbed by nick and laird in their intro 27. grabbed by nick and laird in their intro 28. COMPLETED! I DONE IT!! omg my last run everything went right and i tried to not panic by taking breaks. anyone else going for this trophy i suggest lots of practise on the difficult areas in nightmare, do some complete runs on nightmare and when trying insane, expect to not pass first time but build experience along the way and use youtube videos to guide you (use the 'rebalanced 1.03' guide by ps4trophies and any others you can find). and take breaks when it gets nervewracking! yay! now i'm going to detox for awhile and then next week will get started on outlast 1 - hopefully the insane for that one isnt as bad as this one!
