    Uncharted 3 freezing/spinning ring

    So I know there have been other topics on this, but there was never a clear answer, plus they went dead about 5 months ago so perhaps there is a better solution now.

    i was playing Uncharted 3 multiplayer, and the game kept freezing right before I entered a match. It found players, but wouldn't put me in the match. So I completly restared my ps3. When I restared the game the screen was black forever.

    I tried it one more time and just got drake's ring spinning in the lower corner over and over. I looked at my disc, and it's got some scratches and smudges which is wierd becasue I take great care of my game and all of them are pefectly clean.

    I loaded up Uncharted 2 and it worked fine, but I noticed it had one identical scratch on it as the U3 disc did. Perhaps my ps3 is causing the scratches to the disc? or maybe it's because I put so many hours into the mp that they just wear out?

    I know one solution is to delete your game data and re-insall it but that's just a pain. Plus I don't want to lose my multiplayer progress. I don't know if that would be effected or not. re downloading all the dlc is a pain.

    Anybody willing to help me or provide me with a solution?

    Note: Other game disc, and blu ray movies work fine; it's just U3.

    Maybe I should just buy a new disc?

    Thanks.

    thanks for all the input guys.

    Yeah, the first thing i did was clean it and it didn't work. so I uninstalled the patch data. Then I had to re-install all the DLC which took about 75 mins. All seemed good. I could boot the game up and enter mp but then the same glitch happened. This is the glitch

    "I get into a match in the lobby and the game starts counting down. When it reaches 1 the game glitches. The characters on screen stop moving, and the music stops. However, I'm still able to edit my loadout's and I can highlight and select players in the lobby to check their statistics. The only way out is for me to sign out of psn. When I do that it crashes my whole ps3 and I have to restart it"

    So I just went and bought a new Uncharted 3 disc. and it worked PERFECTLY!

    Then when i took the game out there was a scratch right down the middle! WTF? I didn't think PS3's could scratch blu-ray disc. It's wierd cuz my Uncharted 2 disc has an identical scratch down the middle. Perhaps all Uncharted disc get this scratch when you install it? I don't know.

    Do any of you have scratched uncharted discs? I'm afraid my ps3 might be breaking. I mean what's going on?

    So another update I suppose.

    Like I said earlier the new copy worked but came out with a scratch on it, so I popped in my SSX copy. Guess what? It came out with a scratch on it too. So I guess it's offical. My ps3 has broken.... After 3 good years it's decided to start scratching my games? Why PS3? Why?
