Far Cry 4 is currently unplayable on PS3 for some due to “fatal error”
Ubisoft has had a fairly hard run of things the past couple of weeks. With the remarkably disastrous launch of Assassin’s Creed Unity and numerous other gaming controversies this year, it appears that the once-prominent video game publisher and developer has fallen from the good graces of many within the gaming community. On the other hand, it appears that the company may have done right by their customers with their recently released open-world, first-person shooter, Far Cry 4, with the game boasting consistently high scores across the board.
However, recent developments surrounding the PlayStation 3 version of Far Cry 4 have left many last-generation gamers in an outrage as attempting to play the game causes a “Fatal Error” message to appear on the respective player’s screen. It appears the issue is causing Far Cry 4 to become unplayable for many PS3 gamers worldwide.

Far Cry 4 Experiencing Fatal Error On PS3
While Far Cry 4 has released to a generally positive reception, the game is also subject to some various technical issues, including server and connectivity issues across all platforms, but it appears that the game’s aforementioned fatal error on PS3 is causing the game to refuse to work in any capacity.
While Ubisoft hasn’t come up with a fix for the problem as of this writing, a forum thread has been set up on their website to help relay information to the developers in order to expedite the process of coming up with a solution. Early reports are pointing to the possibility that the issue has something to do with gamers that have Far Cry 3 save data on their PS3’s hard drive.
The following comes from Ubisoft’s previously mentioned forum thread:
We are currently investigating the error message that some players are receiving when attempting to play Far Cry 4 on the Playstation 3 (receiving a “corrupt data” data error message for Far Cry 3).
