I just downloaded the last patch as well as the Citadel DLC. My PS3 is suddenly crashing at load screens. It doesn't matter if the load screen is to go to another level, a new mission, etc. As soon as the game goes to the loading screen - it just hangs and I have to quit out of the game. I have tried loading multimple game saves from different careers and the issue persists. I have cleaned up my saves, deleted unnecessary files, etc. Anyone else have this issue or have ideas on what it could be?
Just to list what I've tried: Re-loading saved games, restarting the mission, restarting the career, pressing the PS button during the load screens, deleted old saves, and uninstalled and re-installed all of the game data and DLC's from the Game Data Utility menu.
The game still crashes (either freezes at the load screen or goes to a black screen) at the same spot (which is the elevetor to the hospital or the Embassy as soon as you reach the Citadel for the first time after the Mars mission.).
I spoke to EA and here are the steps they told me to take. Keep in mind that this is after doing the uninstall/reinstall game data process (takes about an hour, depending on internet speed). If you want to know how to do that too, let me know.
Doing these steps solved my problem, hope it works for you.
