Many consumers are currently dealing with a situation on the PS3 that has made them unable to even reach the main menu for NBA 2K12. The game is freezing upon start-up when it makes the attempt at “loading settings”. This has been reported by a growing number of people with it exploding on forums and through social media in the last two days.
Given how many are being affected by this severe issue 2K Sports has responded with a “workaround” (suggesting the deletion of the “Game Data Utility” file) but based on responses it doesn’t seem to be doing the trick for everyone. Those that have been able to make it back into the game after doing so have found items like shoes and other content to be lost – while some others are still unable to load up the game at all even after deleting the files in question. 2K has stated that a “permanent solution is being looked into”.
