San Andreas PS3 Version won't load

Question

LosSantos95

Now I've had my fair share of problems with the game. I got it in October and didn't have any problems at first. I started playing again in Febuary when the (apperently) infamous flight school glitch happened and I couldn't continue the game. After weeks I found the solution online and I was happy that I could play again. Today, I was having a break from doing the Wu Zi casino missions and returned to Los Santos to do the races. When trying to exit the race selection menu, the game froze. No big deal, or so I thought at first. I restarted my console and when I got to the menu (continue, new game etc.) I pressed "continue." A black screen appeared and I couldn't do anything. The console didn't freeze as I was still able to enter the PS3 menu. So I exited and re-entered the game a couple of times, shut down the console, took out the disk and tried again, but the black screen always appears. Is this a known problem? It really annoys me since I just fixed a game breaking glitch and started playing again, only to have this happen.

Sounds like a broken save file, unfortunately. Does starting a new game work?

I haven't tried that yet, but I will do it tomorrow. What does a broken save file mean for the game? Is it broken? And how does this happen?

Corrupted data is usually detected.

Turning off (or other power interruptions) the machine before the file saves.

Saving with a glitch active.

I'm not sure, I've never used the PS3 version. However, if you can start a new game but not load your current one, that generally means your save file is corrupted, unfortunately. I don't know of any way to un-corrupt console save files. You'll have to do some more research yourself if this turns out to be the case.

So I picked "start" and looked at my save files, I couldn't load my newest one but the one before worked. Unfortunately this file was from Febuary when I was still in San Fierro. I'm gonna have to start playing from here now I guess. It sucks but at least I won't have to start all over again.

You have eight slots, save before you end a session, using those slots in rotation.

...Or a USB Drive. PS3 has the capability unlike the original PS2 where you can plug and play using a USB Drive to make Backups. I do it all the time. I rather use a USB Drive than saving in the other Slots since my other Slots are sometimes filled up by OTHER Saves. I don't want to overwrite those, so the USB Drive works best for me.

 

I play GTA on my PS3, however, mine is backward compatible, so I don't play the Digital 3D Era Releases. I play the Physical PS2 Discs, on the PS3.
