PS3 game not loading?

Hi guys

I bought Borderlands PS3 and now my PS3 doesn't play it, I played it twice but it no longer loads. I have tried all my other ten games and they all work fine.

The disc is mint so I wanted to know if there is anything I could do or is it just wise to send it back to Zavvi for a new one?

Cheers!!

I'd send it back as a faulty disk

here comes YLOD!!

you tried other discs in the ps3?

Wonder if drive failure is imminent?? That's how my 1st PS3 went just as it keeled over and died.

Yes my other 10, I know It's a silly question but I thought I'd ask here before I send it back, to be on the safe side:thumbsup:

could delete you game save data and game data and try it again.
or create a new user and try it on that.

Same. If the other games work may well be a faulty layer on the disk.

Oddly enough I did that just in-case the save data was corrupt, The blue light comes on but no disc image is displayed and it doesn't load itself like all other games. I'll send it back, I thought my settings needed to be re-set or something like that:thumbsup:

btw- It's the old style 40gig version.

That's the sign of disc drive failure, on my 3rd ps3 other two had disc drive failure.

You can either spend £128 I think for a refurb,
or tbh I would go to game an buy a pre owned one and take 1-2 year cover plan for an extra £30
u can get 60gb version for £189 pre owned ATM

2nd option is what I would do,

Everyone has there own prefrence

Why is it just one game it doesn't play out of 10 other games and a dozen blu-ray films which all still work as normal?

I'm quite happy with that rather than all games and films not working, cos thats definately a PS3 problem, There is a small chance the games is faulty, although it did work yesterday:thumbsup:
