Recently I've encountered a problem. Well, it wasn't a problem at the beginning, but now my PS3 can't even start downloading a patch.

What happened step-by-step:

  1. I booted my PS3
  2. Started the game (Injustice: Gods Among Us)
  3. PS3 asked if I want to download and install the update
  4. I chose "YES" and waited
  5. At around 84% (or so), my internet went down. When it was back up, PS3 wasn't able to continue the download, so it was still calculating(and adding) the time remaining.
  6. After a while I turned it off (by holding power button)
  7. Repeated steps 1-4 again
  8. PS3 wanted to start downloading the new patch, but all over sudden it beeped a few times and rebooted itself.
  9. Repeated steps 7 and 8 a few times
  10. Deleted the game data to return the game back to version 1.00
  11. Tried to install patch again - and got the same problem (as in step 8)

Since then I can't install a new patch on that game. I didn't try installing patches to other games, but I think that it shouldn't be a problem.

So the question is: how can I fix it?

  • Can't you download System Updates manually through your PC, and dump it onto a USB stick for updating? – Frank Aug 7 '13 at 14:30
  • @fbueckert I didn't think about it. But will System Updates fix that you think? – Novarg Aug 7 '13 at 14:32
  • Oh, is it a game update, not a System Update? I don't believe you can download and install game updates via USB. Sorry, thought it was a System Update, because I just had to update my PS3 for the new Tales game. – Frank Aug 7 '13 at 14:36
  • Uhm. Try playing another game for a little while. Then try step 9 again? I have no idea what it might do but it's worth a shot? And can you play the game offline? – Reafexus Aug 7 '13 at 14:48
  • @Reafexus yes, playing it offline is no problem. I just can't install the patch. Well, the download doesn't even start :/ – Novarg Aug 7 '13 at 15:16
