Many people all over the world have had the same issue and it seems to only be happening with the ps3 version of the game. Playstation has made an official statement in regards to the error in first blaming the game itself and then blaming individual PS3 consoles saying that the "firmware" can't read the game or its updates. They tried making several patches to fix the problem but it still seems like alot of the 20gb PS3 consoles are still experiencing the same problem. Your best bet would be to contact PLASTATION itself and tell them what is going on because from what i have read its something with the console and not the game itself. I hope this helps

Every time its gets to 62% is says an error with (8002F997) ive tired the method by swiching the media sever to disable but that didnt work. what eles do i do


Error code "8002F997" means your PS3 is having issues updating your system software directly via internet. As a workaround you'll use external storage media, such as a USB thumb drive, to transfer the software to your PS3

1. Requirements

- A USB cable (not necessary if using a USB thumb drive)
- A PC with Internet access
- Storage media or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive

2. Downloading and saving the software

- Plug in your USB drive to your computer, and create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Create a folder named "PS3" on the storage media/USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE".

- Download the update data from

http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/2011_0310_91ee193a2fa921a6fce780fc40236e3b/PS3UPDAT.PUP

and save it in the "UPDATE" folder.

Note:

Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3 will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.

-> Location: Save in the "PS3" folder > "UPDATE" folder
-> File name: Save as file name "PS3UPDAT.PUP".

3. Updating the PS3 software

Note:

Do not turn off the PS3, or remove the USB drive, during the software update!

- Insert the USB drive/storage media into the PS3
- On your PS3, from Home Menu (second icon from the left) -> System Update ->Select [Update via Storage Media].

The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.

I have to say I haven't had lot of joy downloading this particular update directly to PS3 either.

The alternative approach (which worked like a dream for me) is to use your pc to save the update onto a memry stick, then to plug that into one of the PS3's USB ports and do the update from there.

There's a detailed explanation of how to do it towards the bottom of
