no triangle/ control twitching/ slow loading-
i'm having many of the popular issues with this game - it is totally unplayable. i played up to the downtown level a few months ago- then put this game down for gta5 till now- i don't remember having these issues before - now they're horrible.- i wonder if they're related
the worst is i can not pick up items and not move past obstacles because the triangle button prompt does not show up sometimes- this seems to happen randomly. there will be no way for me to survive the game without the supplies, but even if i could i'll get to an immoveable obstacle and be stuck.
the control twitching seems to go away after a few minutes of pressing buttons.
at the load screen it says press any button- i press any button and nothing happens. also, if i can get past the load screen- when loading my saved game it freezes often- it seems these are load time issues? but i'm not sure, there's no indication that the unit is actually doing anything.
i heard this game is awesome and i'd love to play it but this is a total bummer and waste of money. i would like my money back actually if these issues can not be resolved.

i erased the game and re-installed
i erased the whole ps4 and reinstalled
the updates were installed automatically
Was the result of a broken controller.
Sounds like a broken controller in that case. Glad your game is functional again.
i did try that but it didn't work with the update
without the update it worked better, but still broken
got a new controller and that worked- updated the game and it still works
Hi Maxpants, sorry you are having troubles. Have you tried rebuilding the database and re-installing the title?
Start playstation in Safe mode
Rebuild database (option 5)
Once the PS starts, delete the game.
Install the game again.
Since you are installing from disc, and it sounds like you are loading a save from a partially complete game, you may also find that waiting for the title to fully install may help. Although you can boot the game when only 10GB have been copied from the disc, loading a save file from beyond that point may result in your PS4 attempting to read directly from the disc, while it is continuing to copy. This may have occurred as your notes above indicate you erased the title and reinstalled it, as well as initializing the kit.
An hour should be more than sufficient to fully install the title from disc.
Let us know if either of those helps.
i erased again to try without the update patch-
right away there was a difference in the loading- the %percentage meter showed up in the bottom right of the screen-
oddly though, i turned off automatic updates for applications and featured content, but the ps4 finds and downloads TLOU update and map pack anyway- even when i went to downloads and deleted the update before it was done, it reloaded the download and started again- so i paused the download and maybe that will keep it at bay
so maybe the current patch has broken some basic parts of the game?
i'm reloading into the downtown chapter now so we'll see how it goes
--- control twitching still happening, once i make it into the building. its pretty bad. the triangle prompts are showing up so i seem to be able to pick up the items.
now i'm off to buy a new controller to see if this solves the control twitch problem as some have reported.
never had a game make me work so hard
