So, one day I had the brilliant idea of linking my PS3 up to a buddy's PSN account so I could a download a game that he wanted to share.
Sounds like a great deal, right? Well, after the game downloaded, I tried to play it. The system went to a black screen as usual, but... the game never loaded. Perplexed, I tried to play some other games and demos that I had already played before. None of those worked either.
So, with the knowledge that my PSN games no longer function, I hoped and prayed that at LEAST my games on disc would still work. Well, they work fine... kind of. I can play them, but when I hit the Home button, the system locks up before the XMB can even load the icons, and upon a reset of the system, the disc icon no longer displays until I pull the game out and put it back in.
And that's the dilemma I now find myself in. I can still play games on disc, but not being able to use the rest of the PS3's functions is beginning to get tiresome. And after doing some extensive Google searches and finding nothing about this particular issue, I figured I'd ask you all about this before I contact Sony's customer support. So... any ideas what I could do?
