Turok, Stuck Loading

    Hi. I am playing an older game Turok. I am pretty near to the end (after the crumbling base chamber where the scorpions and raptors fight each other) , but now it happened to me when making progress through the game, that the scene (not the saved game) is loading and it never ends. I takes long (I still hear BluRay drive head movement), but finaly the load icon freezes. There's no obvious scratch on disc, however I tried to polish it anyway and clean lenses too. I replayed a few previous levels. Nothing helped. I think it's not a bug, I didn't googled anything which would suggest it. As a matter of principle I would like to finish the game. It was and still is a cheap purchase easy to get. Therefore I ask - is it probably the BluRay discs fault ? If I buy the game again, will my game progress be retained or will I had to play the whole game from scratch? Thanks.

    I never bought this because I got Turok: Evolution day one and it was proper shit.

    OK forget it is Turok. Let's assume it is any game. If I had the same game in 2 copies, will the both BluRay discs share the same progress already made in the game?

    Saves are not tied to the disc which is read only, that is only an issue on preSwitch cartridge systems. Any replacement disc should function the same as any other and any patches installed should be fine by default too. Not heard of that kind of problem nor played that particular game to know about any known bugs though.

    If you do use another disc the problem could still always be the PS3 disc drive.

    I had similar on Call of Duty Ghosts.

    It freezes on the cut scene where it shows the sub going through the water. I have never progressed past that. even with a lot of polishing on the disk it still didn't work.

    If your system is playing other games OK then it most likely isn't the drive.

    There is probably some sort of flaw in the disk. Probably just best to buy and try another copy. Since it is a very old PS3 game you'll probably be able to pick it up for about £2.

    @Dirt3: Other discs are ok, the mentioned game is also ok, only the particular cutscene freezes. I think that there's some hidden flaw on the disc. I'll try to buy it again. Thanks.

    Solved. I bought the game again on eBay (very cheap, disc only) and bingo! I can proceed in game. It was the first time, I encountered faulty disc.
