Dead Nation won't start

6 Replies 819 Views Created 07-06-2011

Managed to play it once yesterday, went to play it today and got a black screen for about a minute then the logo comes up at the bottom right and it won't load past that point. I'm just sat there staring at the flashing "Dead Nation"

Any ideas? Smiley Sad

Download it again? Or back up your save, then delete the original save and try the game.

Re: Dead Nation won't start

To be fair it does take a while to load. How long did you wait?

Re: Dead Nation won't start

Now that i think of it, the "Loading" message in the bottom right corner changes to "press X". Did you get that far OP?

I had this issue once where it sat at a black screen instead of loading, restarted my console & that seemed to fix it for me, as someone else mentioned it does have a long initial load time & keep your eye on the bottom right corner for 'press X to start / continue'

Delete what you've downloaded.

 

Go to Account Management / Transaction Management / Download List on the XMB

 

Download it from there.
