Can't start game cause of freeze
After starting the game, it will freeze at the black and white screen of Joal and Ellie. The PlayStation music will keep playing so it's as if nothing except the photo has loaded yet. I've left it for hours but it still won't load.
Start playstation in Safe mode
Rebuild database (option 5)
Once the PS starts, delete the game.
Download/Install the game again.
The issue is fixed, I deleted the game and redownloaded it. It works fine now, good as new. :)
I have the same problem here...
It's a digital download and I have had it since October 2014.
