Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console

2 Answers

PS3 playing Oblivion The Elder Scrolls IV and when I attempt to select continue and it states load complete and I select X to , it goes to the loading screen but the bar where it shows it loading partially turns read then freezes up. I tried to load the last saved game instead of continue and it also freezes up. I can select the last Auto save and it will let me play, but when I try to leave the cave it shows the loading bar which turns partially red then it freezes up. So in other words it can only play in this particular cave. Get to the end and it won't let me out without freezing up

    Oblivion IV Elderscrolls fails to load. Indicator bar stops and load freezes. The only way I have found to get around this is to go back to a previous known good save. Pretty sucky.

    When I put the Elder Scrolls 4: GoTY in and try to load up the first loading part works, but its the screen where there are like pictures in the background. The bar goes up nearly full way and then my entire ps3 locks. The music is still playing but i can't do anything with the ps3 except switch it off. :( I'm a pretty high level too ad hve spent many hours on this game..

    Any other ways of helping? (Ones that don't include loss of saved game data) :(:(

I can only give a partial answer to the problem. I had the same issue so i went to the load screen and selected the last saved game like you did, except from there i saved again (NOT AN AUTO SAVE, OR YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR PROGRESS)after moving a few steps. Reset then selected the game i just saved and when it loaded i had a successful load and left the cave with full play capabilities. Out of curiosity, what cave were you in? Was it the weapons delivery job for the fighters guild? my problem is that ive closed 5 gates since then and leveled up 4 times. i realy dont have to save too often since ive learned to duplicate objects like healing potions and invisibility potions! So if anyone figures this out it would save me a ton of work.

Sounds like a game bug, either that or this bug only occurs for this particular game disk.. check it out on a different ps3, or like i would do, return it or sell it

Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Echo Problem

I've had a similar problem where all the sounds in the game became echoed like if I was in a cave, even though I was in the middle of a city.

It's quite some time since I got it fixed, but I think what did it was to reinstall the game, cause then you get back all the default files and everything, and all the game settings should be default.

If you have any mods installed, you should back them up, or at least write down the names of them and re-download them so you don't lose them.

Oblivion elder scrolls xbox360 push buttons wont work

The game is very buggy, especially the 360 version. Unfortunately the Live updates for the game don't seem to do much either. Developers have started getting into the habbit of releasing buggy games just to save money. If you have Xbox live, you can download any game updates by connecting then playing the game and it will update automatically. If the problem persists then e-mail the developers and complain, stating the issues you have with the game.
There isn't much else i'm afraid...

Controler plays as a lefty on oblivion, elder scrolls iv

Possible defect in the CD, try attempting another disk. If that doesn't work, there is a potential chance it could be the Remote, unless this is the only game it happens to. Let me know how it goes.
