What the bloody fuck!. this is the 6th time ( no exaggeration ) that uncharted 2 has paused on the initial loading screen with the spinning dagger. I have tried cleaning the disk, re inserting the disk numerous times but no avail. and it appears I'm not the only one thats having this problem hence the 100 other complaints on the net.

has anyone found a solution yet?

from another board:

Now I finally made it. So in case others also had a problem with the last patch, what I did as a final try before feeling as if I had tried everything, I disconnected the PS3 from the internet, deleted the game data that was installed and tried entering the game without internet connection (so it didn't patch). That worked flawlessly, and then I tried to patch it after having tested the game out a little bit again (just entering a level and such) and then when I ran the game it also entered the game almost instantly. :smileyhappy:

Have you tried deleting the game data yet?

I've had this problem... I've tried everything -- spent hours deleting and re-downloading over and over. Still wont work.

Funny I just started a new campaign run earlier. It just doesn't get old for me, so awesome.

Anyway, the disc might be your problem if all the other stuff that people have suggested doesn't work.

Nope. I rented two other discs thinking the same thing... but none of them work. This is a known issue. Unfortunately the fixes that worked for some people don't work for everyone.

I ran into this problem a few months ago, bitched in the Uncharted 2 thread, on the ND forums, etc... nothing.

So, I rented it from Gamefly and swapped discs. It now works like a charm.

It kinda sucks cause I was midway through my difficult run and loving it... looking for treasures, enjoying the scenery.

I wanted to finish that and then jump right into crushing...

So you've actually finished the game before on normal and it stopped working? That's just weird.

I used to have a crashing bug in like level 3, at the same point every time, whether I created a new game or loaded a save, even after deleting game data.

Uncharted 2 has pretty messed up bugs.

I tried everything... it is weird. The only thing I refused to do was delete my game saves from the HDD. But I did move them to a dummy profile and delete them from the main profile I was using. I had to delete everything and redownload the game data and patches at least three times. Because I was trying it with other discs that I rented, and because I had to try it while not connected to the internet.

Incredibly frustrating. And pretty expensive considering I had already bought the game once, and it's not cheap to rent games. And in the end I never fixed the issue. I'm actually getting pretty annoyed right now thinking about it. :lol

I'm having the same problem, but with God of War 3, my brother and I finished it when it came out, but when I try to play it now it freezes around the time when you meet the last boss

I haven't found a fix for the problem and the disc is in perfect codition, I'm going to try to delete the game data and post back results

Just posting in case someone is having the same problem with this game

EDIT: Nope, deleted the game data and turned off the internet but the game still hangs on the same spot, there must be a reason why this happens all my other games work flawlessly

Never heard this one.

Might have to fire up UC2 to see if I have this issue. I know the loading screen takes AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGES, but it starts eventually.
