The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
i've got an old ps2. like 35001 or whatever the numbers are.
i've never gotten a disc read error and have been playing okami and god of war with no problem whatsoever.
i recently popped ffx2 and ico in and the game never loads. i get to the browser (which recognizes the discs) and even the ps2 logo. if i wait long enough the opening movie of ico begins...but im wondering what the problem here is.
i don't really mind cleaning the thing out or sending it in to sony...but i've never seen this problem until now and i have owned and used the ps2 since i bought it. i've never seen any of these errors or witnessed anything close to this breakdown until now. not even stuttering or delays.
the discs i use are clean. and, to my horror, the more games i pop in the less work.
i'm wondering if its worth my time to try to open and clean (obviously it already out of warranty) or if i should just send it to them.
