Dead Nation won't start

6 Replies 811 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? :smileysad:

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.
