Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Games will load but not start up

I recently got End War for my PS3.  The console will accept the disc and it even installs the game which took about 12 min.  Once the game gets past all of the logos,etc. and the "push start" prompt appears, nothing happens.  I push start, select, tried another controller, etc., but still nothing happens.  It doesn't freeze up and the game intro will continue to run, it just won't play.  
This also happened when I got Bioshock from Gamefly, but I thought it might have been the disc.  RSV2 is the other game I own and it will play.
Any thoughts?
Also, if it ends up being a hardware problem where do I send it?

It is because it means that your system might be busted or that your game is too old to play

I bought god of war 3 for my ps3 and when i insert it it sounds like its gonna read and then it makes a clank noise and nothing happens but it reads all other games but this one


It sounds like the disc is broken. Blu-ray disks are scratch resistant, but if they have even the tiniest of cracks or dings, the disc is often unplayable. It is usually characterized by the weird sounds you're hearing when you try to load the game.

Take the disc into bright light and check the underside very carefully, looking for any sign of a hairline crack. Even if you can't find a crack, my suggestion is to return it for a different disc, as it seems probable that the game is broken.

PS3 not reading discs.


Hey man, you can try this....

1. download and install a psn game or game demo
2. put in the disc of the game or video you want to play or watch
3. load the psn game or demo as if you were going to play it
4. quit the demo as soon as you get to the start menu of it
5. go and play or watch the game or video you wanted to, sucka, cause it works now!!!

I hope this works for you, and if it does, spread the word!

Sony playstation2 slimline,problem withthe game ''godofwar''


Sounds like a defect in the disc. Possibly a scratch or blemish.
If your other games dont hiccup it's most likely the "god of war" disc
