Watch Dogs unplayable on Ps3. How to get refund?


I'm playing Watch Dogs after a few months of waiting for Ubisoft to patch this broken game.
Thank you for fixing Social Lubricant, made my day!
But the game is now completely unplayable, here is some of my issues on ps3:
- the game freezes pretty much every 5 minutes, mostly during saving loading
- if the game freezes during a critical save thr save becomes broken when I restart the console, it's the third time in 2 days and I had one episode in may/june wich made all my progress to reset.
- sound comes and goes. Mostly I have dialog and carsounds and some strange sounds when I am walking
- the game is lagging if I play more than 15min (if it doesnt freeze, then it does)
- during a mission sometimes it's not possible to progress. For example you are supposed to avoid policescanners but the scanning never starts.

I am trying to get that last trophy that was not possible to get because of my stats resets.

The game is, as you can understand, not playable.
I want a refund and the trophy to pop so I can get this game cleared. Then I would like to give it to my worst enemy.
I can also settle with a promise from Ubisoft that they stop making games.

ive purchased the game watchdogs this morning from Tesco and its frozen on me four times in 2 hours. agree with everything thats being said. how a game can be released with such issues is beyond me. first time its ever happened. maybe its a sign that ubisoft and playstation are making cut backs on ps3 games now!!!!!. shame because their still charging the similiar prices...

I currently have the exact same problem any help would be much appreciated

Ive been getting the same, I dont think Ubisoft should stop making games, I DO think they should NOT release games with bugs JUST to meet a deadline
Guest 6:49 pm, December 1, 2014
I just purchased Watch Dogs for the PS3 and I'm having the same issues. The game freezes and is unplayable. I returned the game thinking it was the disk, but I am having the same issue with the replacement. Started to think it was my PS3, but it sounds like this issue is wide spread. I don't think Ubisoft should stop producing games, but I think they should resolve the issue. When there is an issue with your car…the car is recalled and repaired. Why not do the same here? Let the public know there is an issue with the game, that it will be resolved and when can we expect to play the game without it freezing. As with a lot of other people, I am out $50!!

Ps. I have a disc version of the game and am not sure how this would work on a digital version 1) make sure u have latest save games backed up online an PSN 2) uninstall game data 3) disable internet connection on PS3 4) delete local save games on PS3 5) load game and install without the patches 6) start game to menu - still in offline mode 7) exit game and enable internet connection 8) enter game and install patches 9) start game to menu 10) exit game and delete the new local saves 11) load save game from online storage at PSN to PS3 (select overwrite if step 10 skipped) 12) start game and enjoy

Help, what do you mean install without patches and enter game and install patches??
Guest 3:36 am, February 17, 2015
He mean to install the game separately from the patches because if they install together they screw up

Yeah I have the exact same problem. I just bought it brand new at EB games yesterday and when I noticed the horrible glitches and then it froze the first time I went sleep in the game. I took it back to EB today and got it exchanged for a new copy, and the exact same things are happening. So I guess Ill be bringing it back tomorrow for a cash refund and maybe Ill try this game out when I eventually get ps4.

same problem bro. all issues are genuine. My progress was also reset and game freezes after every couple of minutes. This is the worst game i have ever played in terms of bugs. Game becomes slow,it feels like it is lagging. i thought there is some problem with my ps3. but it seems this game sucks not because of its gameplay but because of these problems,

You are a stupid **** if you think you're gonna get a refund. You are also a ******* moron if you think Ubisoft will stop making games. Please go **** yourself. Thanks.
