    Question ProjectCARS freezing every time I try to play

    Hi everybody, I'm new here. Don't usually do the forum thing but didn't see another choice here. I just bought my PS4 yesterday and ProjectCARS today. The game freezes EVERY time I try to start a race. Any track, any car. The PS4 plays the only other game I have so far (DriveClub) without a hitch. I assume it must be the game. I have a physical disk I bought new from Kmart. I patched the game as soon as I put the disk in (all the way to 2.0). I'm pretty bummed because I was looking forward to getting into this game and really don't have anything else to play - didn't like DriveClub to be honest. The PS4 is also brand new bought from WalMart. Is this a common issue or known problem? This game is completely unplayable for me currently.

    As a note, the PS4 itself is also patched to the latest software update.

    And if the above doesn't fix the game , take the game back as I have never seen this .

    Get another copy from them.

    You got any peripherals plugged in or just a dualshock controller? Describe your setup a little. Can you also try it offline (not connected to internet and i mean completely disconnect the PS4 from the network/wifi)

    These are just tests to see if we can get it working at all

    Thanks for the replies guys. I can say with 90% certainty it isn't a hardware issue. I just played DriveClub for almost an hour as a test and there wasn't so much as a stutter. I don't have any peripherals hooked up, just the DS4 controller. Is there a way I can delete the game data? Maybe the updates were corrupt.

    Rather go to Settings > System Storage Management > Applications and delete the game files there, might wanna delete your save data as well.
    Def worth a shot.

    Thanks guys. Yeah, I'll try that after work tomorrow. I'll be pretty bummed if I have to send it back since I ordered it online...won't be as easy as taking it back to the store. Reason I bought it on Kmart.com is that it was only like $30 and free shipping. Now I know why, Kmart received all the copies that half work.

    DEVELOPMENT: I deleted all the game data and ran the game without updating it. I've played two races without freezing. Seems the update is the culprit. Next I'll try reinstalling the updates. Wish me luck.
