Dear sir/madam,

Generally it's EA's games, they don't take advantage of the hard drive to save on load times, the 360 is slightly faster on load times because the DVD drive is faster then a bluray drive.

use your gurantee. they might send you a new one.

thanks
good luck

From i can get from the trouble shooting your hard drive is bad. it is not allowing anything else to happend. that is why it is stuck on loading. you may see if your unit is still under warrenty and get it repaired.

please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya.

Did you try another game if see if it will work? because if other game work this can be a problem with that game that you're trying to play.. But if no game is working with the PS3 that can be a firmware problem you can call Sony for that and ask for any firmware update..

Hope that helps............

Hi,

When you insert the game, it should work right away. If not, then there is most likely something wrong with your console, and your best bet would be to go back to the store you bought it at and exchange it. If it is outside the warranty from the store, then contact Sony directly.

    Make sure that your PS3 is updated to the latest firmware (version 2.10).



    If your PS3 is updated and it still wont play PS3 games, then it's a problem with the PS3 probably.

  • Priya darshan Aug 20, 2008

    IF you still face the problem after a firmware update then your ps3 has over heated and this isnt cheap to get repaired neither will cost nearly as much as it did to buy.
    If
    you have had the ps3 sitting on carpet or on top of something like
    cable box or video or dvd player this will cause the unit to overheat.

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.
