thanks for this amazing tip. I can't be bothered to play through two times again since I already played through the game 2 and a half times (glitched through my own fault on that half game).
after this only gonna do NYM then I'm done with sp.

the only thing wrong with playing the game 1 more time is the time it takes. if you did hard and old school, hardcore isn't bad at all.

I knew this would be fixed! Oh well. I think I am just going to complete the game on Old School and Hardcore, but not New York Minute. That just looks too time consuming for me and I can see myself getting very frustrated. I want to get most of the other achievements though in this game.
If I have to do it the long way, so be it.

Try New York Minute. It's not that hard and it's a 100 gamerscore achievement.

New York Minute Hardcore is the really time consuming one, and it only has 10 gamerscore.

So for that one you don't get sent back to the beginning? or for all New York Minute modes you will be sent back to the beginning but regular New York Minute is easier?

In regular NYM you get sent back to the beginning of the chapter. Ch. 13 and 14 can get pretty difficult since you run out of time easily. But it's so worth doing for the 100gs.

In hardcore NYM you get sent back to the beginning of the game. Doable but way way harder.

When is Hardcore supposed to unlock? I got Old School right away then I changed difficulty and nothing happened. I guess it got patched? I tried to clear the system cache but the game is not prompting me to update still (I would like to deny it and play offline). Any ideas?

I have tried it, and I'm stuck on Chapter 3. I run out of time or die from BS (like not being able to hit the guy that downed me). I hate time pressure.

Yes. It has been patched apparently, which really sucks.

I played through on hard first and unlocked both hardcore and oldschool.
Unfortunately I went directly into hardcore and did oldschool afterwards without knowing of the glitch.
You should have both unlocked if you've already finished hard.
Weird...

Can anyone confirm this method is now patched? I am getting ready to start the game. Can I just decline the update? If not, is there a work around? Thanks in advance

If you are starting new game for the first time then decline the update (you cant play multiplayer though) the problem is for people who have already tried the only way is to do hard/oldschool again without updating, doing hardcore legit would prob be easier than doing those 2 again.

You can't decline the update otherwise you play the game offline.
From what everyone else has posted about I think it is confirmed that this doesn't work anymore.

It also pauses the game so you have plenty of time to close that and press it again

^ Nice method, but I don't think its worth it to lose all your grinds. I would just try and complete it on hardcore the long way. You will feel way better since you completed it without stepping over the boundaries if you know what I mean.

Damn shame about it being patched. I still hadn't gotten around to finishing my PS3 Old School Run, and I know that I've updated it before. Bollocks.

Do not delete your save files to do this glitch!

The only purpose of this glitch was to save time. If you beat Old School mode, Hardcore is just as easy (if not easier). Deleting your save to play the game 2 more times defeats the purpose of this and just wastes time.

Some newer games save their patches on hard drive in game's directory, not in cache. Why not try to delete just the 17mb title update in game's folder, not the save?
