Cannot Press X to Start


When launching Watch Dogs for the first time on my PS3, I'm prompted to "Press X to start" but nothing happens. How can I fix that?


To resolve the issue you are experiencing, please follow the below steps:  
1. Uninstall the game from your console using the guide from Sony's website.
2. Re-install the game, but do not launch it.
3. Next, disconnect your console from the internet.
4. Then, launch the game without internet access (if you are prompted for a patch upon launch, you did not disconnect from the internet).
5. Once the game launches without being prompted for a patch, proceed to the title screen.
6. Press X on the title screen and you should now be able to continue to the main menu.
7. Once on the main menu, do not start a new game. Instead, close the game and return to the PlayStation dashboard.
8. Now reconnect your console to the internet.
9. Launch the game once again and when prompted for a patch, download it.
10. After the patching finishes, continue into the game and now you can begin your new save file.
