I'm still having issues installing the game off the disc. I have more than enough space and the disc isn't scratched but it keeps getting stuck at 63%. Any advice on how to get this to work? Really want to play the game.
They were able to get it to work with the following steps:
- Go to Settings > Network> Uncheck the 'Connect to Internet' box.
- Install disk completely.
(note that in can still take a while, still several hours rather than possibly over a day long...)
- Turn your network settings back on.
- Delete the patch if it starts to auto-download when the disk is inserted.
(via the Notifications > Downloads menu)
- Re-prompt updates by using the "Check for Updates" option on the Far Cry 4 game icon.
From what I've read online, it looks like it just tends to take an atrociously long amount of time. Hopefully those steps help a bit, but you might still have to muscle through quite a long install. (IF you decide to restart for any reason(s), it might be a good thing to make sure you don't have any residual FC4 files on your system before restarting)
I had the same problem. I was able to solve it by lowering the air temperature in the room by about 10°C and placing the console on a cold marble plate to cool it.
You should also try placing the PlayStation 3 on the other side; for example, I always place it vertically, so I placed it down horizontally.
