ALL GAMES PLAY EXCEPT DOWNLOAD OF WIPEOUT HD / MOTORSTORM RIFT

Hi i downloaded Wipeout hd 2 weeks ago, it will load to the health warning screen then nothing, it will not continue. I have contacted Sony store but not much help....
I bought the new Motorstorm yesterday this will load up to the player selection screen and then will go no further, it is like the pad is not working but it is?
My other games show no signs of problems i'm in the middle of dead space no issues.

any help would be appreciated

    Exact same problem. I can press the PS button to exit the game, but that is the only functional button. It just hangs at the white Health Warning screen. I am not logged into PSN. A reboot does not help.

    Any suggestions?

So, I just discovered that I THOUGHT it was frozen at the health warning screen, but in all actuality it will only let you press the X to confirm that screen with controller number 1 even though it will let you do anything else with ANY controller. Silly, but true... Hope this helps

Heya Mark! it seems that Pacific rift has been giving a whole lot of problems to PS3 users. The game calls upon specific memory registers and multiple SPE's that tend to overheat the CELL/RSX processors. believe it or not if your thermal paste is depleted in certain parts of the heat sink, you will overheat the unit. try assassins creed and COD online, these are other SPE/RSX intensive games...if they crash also u most probably need to reapply AS5 paste on the processors before you do irreparable damage to the BGA circuitry...w do this for 55 (u pay shipping). if under warranty send back to SONY for refurb unit.1800345SONY. if out of warranty ull have to cough up 150(plus applicable state taxes) and wait 2-4 weeks for another unit which they warranty for 90days. and then the problem will happen all over again. lol

Ps3 controller will not steer Motorstorm Pacific Rift anymore


Give this hard reset a shot.

Flip the controller over, and press the reset button. It's to the right of the middle-top screw ps3_controller_reset.jpg. You'll need something like a paperclip, toothpick, or something similar to push the button. Once you've reset your controller, connect it to your PS3 with a handy USB cable, and press the PS button (just like you did when you first got the controller). Now, it is paired again, and you should be OK.

Let me know if it works.

There might be a problem with the hard drive itself. Formating the drive shouldn't take that long unless you did the full format option.

As far as viruses go forget about it. There is NO WAY your PS3 can get a virus. It's a linux based machine with crazy encryption. ONLY Sony would be able to do something like that and that's not something they would ever do.

Your question about the 47 vs 55 is a good one. I'm not 100 sure but it's probably due to bad sectors on the hard drive, hence the long format time. Easiest thing for you to do is to swap the drives and see what happens.

The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.

I had the same Motorstorm issue. Was it the Time Trial download by any chance? Unfortunately you'll have to delete the Motorstorm game data (you MAY be able to keep saved games, but I'm not certain) and then you'll find that that Motorstorm miraculously loads up again...
