I purchased Uncharted 3 about four days ago and am experiencing a very strange glitch. In the desert, inside the ghost town when we encounter several people shooting at us including a Sniper and Drake says that he can't do this anymore, right as Salim appears on horseback, the moment the cutscene should trigger, it is not.
The horse that Salim is on is stuck in the running animation in front of the stone that Drake takes cover behind and not moving.
The horses and characters are transparent and I can go through them. I did some exploration and glitched my way outside the settlement, where the map seems to end abruptly and buildings are half complete.
I have not tried jumping off the edge of the map, which shows gray area. The characters are still chanting and Drake is still playable.
Has anybody else experienced this glitch? And if so, is there a way past it?
