I’m an avid NBA 2K player and I’ve recently had some problems with the newest game in the NBA 2K franchise. After going through the startup screens, right when the game is about to load into the home screen, a popup occurs. It says ‘Loading Custom Shoe Data’. This popup freezes my PS3 and no matter how many times I restart it and try to load the game it just doesn’t get past ‘Loading Custom Shoe Data’.
It seems as if people have been having this problem with NBA 2K13 as well, during my extensive web research I found many forums with gamers asking how to get past the screen. I also noticed that this problem was not specific to the PS3, XBOX users were having this problem as well. After a while I ended up on a Youtube Watch page, where a gamer had the problem on his PS3. As I was reading the comments I saw a user who apparently had a fix, I tried it and it worked.
Here is the workaround:
- · Start up the game (let the opening video play)
- · Wait until the game goes into the demo mode
- · After waiting 3-5 sec press any button
- · Start the game
