Keepin Hope Alive
So I did have a dynamic theme enabled and tried to play it again with the dynamic theme turned off and all theme options set to the default settings. The same issues were still very present at the end of act 1 in the pharmacy and beginning of act two. The previous posters video (the one with the auto focus thing) is a perfect reprensentation of what is happening. This is my 3rd playthrough (yes, i like the game that much) and every time the same damn thing occurs. It does happen on another ps3 (new slim 500gb version) that i tested on as well as mine. Since there are so many other users with the same problem and its been so long, i have not gone back to try and exchange the disc at my retailer (i also dont have the receipt any longer). My ps3 details are as follows:
Slim PS3 / model CECH-2001B / 250gb hdd (unchanged and not replaced) / system software version 4.31 (as of 2-28-2013) / purchased on 1-7-2010 from a Target store.
No other game or disc has ever had issues running with my dynamic theme installed and no bluray discs have had problems with playback. This one however is still having major difficulties at the spots reported (reported by multiple people).
I thank you for your continued followup on this, but shouldnt a game run ok regardless of the os theme or a drive being defragmented? I am trying the steps listed and removing my themes i payed to use but still experiencing issue. Again i dont wish to sound rude at all but it seems this has been reported enough to warrant some more thorough investigation from the team. Well let us know, and if i decide to attempt a playthrough again ill see if i cant get some form of video.
