Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Game exits to XMB while playing MGS4

When playing Metal Gear Solid 4 I get to a specific point and the game crashes, back out to the out-of-game XMB. However the system itself is still responsive. This happens during a loading sequence (act 3, during the motorcycle chase, right after the flying chick shoots a grenade at you). It has happened numerous times (6 or 7), both with the most recent firmware (2.8) and the previous one. I have also tried reinstalling the game data installed on the hard drive, no change. The disc itself does not have any visible marks or scratches when I hold it under the light. I have previously completed the game all the way through with this disc and did not encounter the problem last time I played through.

If the game works just fine until you're online, it sounds like a problem on Sony's end. In light of recent events and problems with Playstation Network, your best bet at troubleshooting your specific online issue is with Sony themselves. It's quite possibe they are still experiencing PSN problems. Give them a call at:

If its the only game that you play then the disc could be getting worn out. It happens with most games that get overused. You will probably have to get a replacement.

yeah i had to restart the whole stinking game because act one : end wouldn't load. not that i was that far into this game but it was a pain nonetheless. I don't know why this happened. I didn't use any cheats or anything like that. I think the "Metal Gear" franchise has gone downhill starting with "Snake Eater" for the PS2. It's sad because this series has so much promise but then all of a sudden Hideo Kojima started with all sorts of weird plots and way way to much dialogue.
