Bug just hit me. Its a real bummer. Thankfully the quest I was doing (Called Carnal Sins) was real amazing and I didn't mind it too much.

Level 20 now so I am about 4 levels above from the next available story quest. Gonna take a break till they fix it. I love the game and would like to say that XP doesn't matter, but it does and gotta stop.

That is fantastic. This is fantastic. You are fantastic.

(Giant Bomb crew are alright too, I guess)

And it didn't work :/ Gonna explore buying another copy of the game. Will probably come back to MGS IV much later though. Kinda frustrated will all the technical shit I've had to go through.

And I have a 50 hour Witcher 3 playthrough that beckons.

Would be awesome if Konami just announced a MGS IV remaster for PS4. Would do that.

I'm also playing MGS4 greatest hits version right now and am well past that part without a hitch. One thing I've noticed with MGS4 is that it never starts the game up when it's done loading, you always have to press the start button once loading is finished or it just sits on the loading screen (prompting you to press start.) That doesn't sound like your problem here at all, but it's a weird little quirk of the game.

I think that's the same for everyone haha.

Oh man, this really blows. Gonna try deleting the game data and re-installing everything. Nothing stops me playing Metal Gear.

Weird. If that symbol's popping up it sounds like a disk issue.

Well, that's a bummer. Read up and some said it might be a system heat type thing. Gonna stop for a long while and try again. If not... Well, I think MGS 4 is a legitimately great game. Might have to buy another copy.

Man, this sucks.

Well, encountered another issue.

Right after the cutscene where Raiden comes in and fucks shit up in Act 2, it dumps Snake back in the marketplace. Immediately, on the top left hand corner of the screen there is an icon of a disc that constantly swaps between being a disc and a question mark. The game freezes here.

Trying to enter the XMB crashes the entire PS3 and eventually, the PS3 reboots.

Tried thrice now.

MGS4 is the Greatest Hits version, disc has no scratches too

@skullpanda1: Only did the boss fight and went till the next save point. Haven't played anymore since. Will report back in this thread if anything goes wrong again. Indications seem to be that its an issue with Patch 2.0 that added the trophies to the game.

@angryhobo321: It worked! Re-installed and opted not to install the full game this time and it got me through that. Only needed to defeat Laughing Octopus four times, go online to look for help, accidentally stumble upon Act 4 location spoilers to get it working :/

Thanks so much for the help though! Really appreciate it. Great game so far :)

The one act of the 5 that you don't want to be spoiled on! Ah well, it'll still be fun.

Yea, it seems like a big one. But I kinda recall about a quick switcheroo thing with the graphics in that Act just through osmosis and message boards so maybe I wasn't too badly spoiled.

@zereta: I'm sending a link to a youtube video that should be easier to follow than me typing it out. Hope this helps. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hx1rzF0LEME

Edit: The game data is the install, while the save data is the save data.

Meaning to say, I can delete the game data, re-install the game and carry on from the same saves as before?

About to finish my third Laughing Octopus defeat. If it doesn't work again, will try that. Thanks!

Yeah that should hopefully work. Good luck duder!

Thanks so much! In the process of re-installing the game, hope it works!
