After two days of PlayStation 3 players being unable to play Disney Infinity properly without the game locking up and save game corruption, patch 1.03 has arrived to make things all better, mostly.
The previous patch, 1.01, caused the game to lock up shortly after launching, as well as corrupting game saves. A workaround for the issue involved deleting patch 1.01 and playing offline to avoid accidentally auto-updating the game, but this led to issues with saving character progress, and did nothing to fix corrupted game saves.
I have installed patch 1.03, and so far the game seems to be working as intended. Unfortunately, the save games for each of my adventure packs and my toy box creations are gone,, and in order to register the characters I built-up in the weekend prior to the game's launch, I have to reset all of their progress. So, crap.
While I weep quietly in the corner, here's the patch post from the Disney Infinity Facebook page:
As of August 20th we have deployed a new patch for Play Station 3 players experiencing certain issues including freezing, hitching, corrupted game saves and crashes.
Please follow these steps:
Turn on your Console
Insert your Disney Infinity Game Disc
As soon as you load the game should prompt you with the update
Please Download the Update
Enjoy Disney Infinity!
Please note: The patch does not fix corrupted game saves, so for players with corrupted game saves please delete them and start your Infinity experience anew. Also, make sure to Take Ownership of your figure from the pause menu.
