    Haha first thought was, I sure hope he plugged it in.
    Well I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say you did.

    Sounds to me like a corrupted save since other games work.

    Try formatting your Memory Stick.

    Make sure you back up your game saves though.

    Well except that game, it might be messed up.

    If that's not it then ask away.

    Oh and glad to have you here at Afterdawn! =D

    tnanks for the reply deleted that save and started the whole game again after about an hour it just shut down this time ..this time it was just running off of the battery it powered straight back up and showed two bar of battery ....going to take game back to day hope that is the fault...not sure why a game would make it power down though.....

    Have you checked the battery? can you swop with a friend to test?

    You do not mention whether it shuts down on AC Power to?

    I ask as i had similar problem some time ago - turned out to be battery had gone a bit mad. Bought a new one not happened since. Just a thought.
