Have you ever heard of "Three Rings of Death"? Well, the yellow light basically means that your PS3 has overheated or suffers from a hardware malfunction. The only thing you could try doing is removing your HDD and then putting it back in and sometimes that will work.

If it doesn't then I'm sorry my friend, you'll have to send it back to Sony. The yellow light is usually a sign of death for the PS3.

Hi, i think where you buy the CDs from Tesco, are not OK,am sure they are the original version of that particular game (star wars).
You can try another game store and get that particular star wars cd and install to be sure is not the lens of the game that is weak to play the game or the star wars cd is bad.

Have a nice day.

Star Wars the force unleashed will not start up on our PS3.

Check the regional settings in the PS3 as the game may not be set to the same settings if it comes from us japan ect, you should be able to reset them to read the disc

Xbox 360 will not play Star Wars Force Unleashed

I'm having the same problem, I think it has problems because the cutscenes are rendered in real time (though I can't confirm this).

You should try copying the game to your hard drive, then running off the hard drive, and see how you go. I'm about to go and do that myself.

Good luck :)

PS3 won't play games, but plays dvds.

You might want to buy a cleaning disk, I'm assuming that the child had got something on the game and it was loaded and now the lens is dirty. Try that first.
