My ps3 won't play GTA 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4

My PS3 used to play GTA 4 and Metal Gear Solid 4... Until now, I used to play Metal Gear and GTA all the time but now it seems that my PS3 can't play it anymore.

Ok, so i have 7 games namely fight night round 3, NBA 2k8, Uncharted, Ninja Gaiden, Devil May Cry 4, GTA 4 and then Metal Gear solid 4. My ps3 is able to play fight night and nba 2k8 and uncharted and devil may cry and ninja gaiden but it is not able to play GTA 4 and Metal gear.

The thing is the first part of these two games are shown on the screen like when it notifies you about the HDD stuff and then the screen just turns black and the music from the game goes on. As for GTA 4 after the rockstar logo is shown and the GRAND THEFT AUTO 4 is shown the screen turns black and the music still goes on.. SO any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

SOURCE: NES game cheats not working? (NES Ninja Gaiden 2)

could be a number of things... try other games and se if they work, if those do then it is just that game. If no other cheat codes work it is most likely your NES system sorry

Ps2 Disc won't respond to a Ps3 when inserted.


Only the first version of the PS3 had PS2 backwards compatibility, They did make a special edition Metal Gear Solid version with it included but other than that no other PS3 will play PS2 discs... No matter what Add-On you install.

I have an 80GB Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle system. System shuts down after 10 minutes and when restarted or turned back on it will says that the system was shut down incorrectly.


Base from the description of your problem this can be an issue with the overheating of the unit, if this problem happen even when you're not playing or playing the possibilities of overheating is high.

Because if the shut off only happen when you play games on your PS3 what you can do here to correct the problem is to do a software update on it, but if the shut off also happen when not playing games the system is overheating and the fan on it may not be working fine and needs replacement.

So if the PS3 is still under warranty better take it to service center near you and have the fan replace or better yet have the unit replace.

My ps3 wont play ps3 games or bluray movies?


It sounds like a faulty laser or disc drive.

If you can hear the disc move, then your disc drive is fine. If you can hear a clicking sound, then the lens is touching the disc, but this is rare in itself. See if your warranty is still good at us.sony.com/support

That's the best you can do.

80GB PS3 displays Snow/White screen during playback


Did you ever figure out how to fix this. We simply took our system and hooked it up to a different tv and it stopped. I personally think the problem is with the HDMI cable and wether the cable and the socket are connecting.

Ps3 playing gta4


this is a well known bug for the game, they are working on patches for this issue. Don't worry, you're PS3 is ok, but changing the game won't make any difference either, unfortunately it is a waiting game until the patch arrives.
