PS3 won't read MGS4!

I just bought MGS4 a few hours ago only to find that my PS3 won't read the disc! The disc booting icon appears in the top right, but the disc icon never appears under GAME. My PS3 will still read my other games though. Anyone else encountered this problem and found a solution? Any help is appreciated.

return it to the store

I did! I've done a system restore, disconnected cables, let it sit, reconnected cables and anything else I could think of. I don't think the odds that I can get two defective MGS4 discs in a row are very high.

It is also usual that the error occurs in production batches. Thus the same store would receive the same production batch. Ask the store if more have been returned besides yours.

I told the Gamestop employee what happened when I get my 2nd copy and he said that one person had returned a copy for not being able to connect online. I'll try again in a little bit and if it still doesn't work, I'll head back over there. It's just so frustrating! I was so excited to finally play MGS4 and I get shafted, argh......

Yeah, since the employee told you that happen to another customer, it be safe to say it's probably something wrong w/ that store's batch of MGS4 games that were shipped to them.

Hopefully I can get lucky and get a working copy this time.

nope it never worked, so I'm taking my ps3 in and getting a new one because the disc worked on my friends ps3 perfectly.
