The actual issue was it took 30+ minutes to delete (instead of normal seconds). The corruption occurred when people reset their PS3s. It happened to me, it seemed to have freezed but instead of resetting I googled
I left it for 45 minutes, no corruption.
As someone said on a forum at the time, a game that managed to annoy an hour after playing it.
Tried to delete my Resistance 3 install. Froze my PS3, had to do a hard reset. File got corrupted. I thought it froze again. But I noticed that little circle was turning in the corner. So left it, after almost an hour it deleted.
@Fredsmin - Yeah, when I deleted it, it left a block of corrupted data that would freeze my system whenever I tried to remove it. It took a few hours of trying different things suggested online but I eventually got it sorted. This was a long time ago though so I can't remember exactly how I did it, but it involved rebuilding the system database from safe boot, as well as the other options on there, excluding formatting the HDD. After that I was able to remove the corrupted block of data.
FlatOut 4: Total Insanity is a racing game, inspired by stock car competitions and destruction derbies, where players have to win races while inflicting as much damages as possible to their opponents. This arcade game brings back the pillars which made the license success: Speed, Nitroglycerin, Destruction and Stunts, blend into a wacky atmosphere.
Besides races through more than 20 tracks, players can unleash their craziness in Arena and Stunt modes, online or offline (up to 8 players in the same party). Through 10 game modes, players unlock rewards and content, ultimately collecting 27 vehicles and all the customization accessories (skins, sound effects, Nitro boost).
