Anyone else having this problem where loading a save game it hangs with a black screen? It seems an awful coincidence that this has happened during the PSN downtime but this is a PS3 Slim. There seem to be other with the same issue online after the last patch but no solutions. Anyone from oz in the same boat? I was 3/4 of the way through the game.!
Hahah Twinsen that was GOLD.
I haven't come across this issue, I am sorry.
Can you just go into the "Chapters" option from the main menu and pick up at the chapter you were at? You shouldn't lose much (or any) progress.
How is the game btw? I absolutely loved farenheight, one of the only games I sat down and played through from start to finish it was that good.
I am yet to play Heavy Rain but I must say David Cage seems like a neurotic, crazed and unstable artist. He is the Hemingway of the video game industry. He doesn't see his games as games but instead 'Interactive Movies'. He comes of a bit like Billy Walsh from Entourage. He is the man.

How good the game is is a tricky one to answer. In the beginning having to shake the controller and press O to drink orange juice or any of the other mundane things that you have to do was boring the hell out of me and it seemed that the gameplayer was basically irrelevant to what was happening on the screen. As its been a few hours now and the story has progressed its hooked me in more and more. Particularly when you realise that a characters storie can just come to an end depending on your choices. If the game can make you care about that then its achieved something quite new i think. Probably why many other reviews have summarised it as brilliant and flawed.

Just the way i like them :)
Thanks for the feedback. I have tried previous saves as well with the same result. On other forums people have started again onyl to have the same thing crop up later which would have me throwing the controller at the wall.
As its been less than a week i might have to just exchange it for Bad Company 2 and take out my frustrations with some head shots.
Even using the Chapter's option and picking a chapter doesn't work? I didn't think that was loading a save, but I guess internally maybe it is.
Yeh Khel tried that as well. no joy.
Ok just to close this off i managed to get it to load from the chapters by going back about 15 of them and continuing from there...
I can't load me drums in this heavy rain anymore.
I though the same thing reading the thread title, luckily I was just playing guitar yesterday so only the cases got wet.
Is everyone here in the same Brisbane band or something? :P
