Can't equip recorder in Episode 1

posted by DeputyDirtbag on - last edited - Viewed by 2.4K users
I downloaded this game on the PS3. I'm at the part in Episode 1 where I have to record the mutterings of the young Emmett Brown in 1931. But whenever I try to equip the tape recorder, nothing happens.

I press square, which brings me to the inventory. I highlight tape recorder. I press X, which is supposed to equip the item (tape recorder) as it returns me to the game. But... my character has no tape recorder.

There's a tape recorder icon at the top of the screen, indicating that the recorder is equipped. But there is NOTHING in Marty's hands, and I can't record muttering young Emmet Brown. I have seen screenshots from the walkthrough that show Marty holding up the tape recorder towards Brown. But this does NOT happen on my game.

Is this a glitch? What am I doing wrong?

Any help would (or updates to download) would be appreciated.

  • I don't know how the PS3 version works, but... have you tried clicking (or its PS3 equivalent) on young Emmet when you have the recorder icon on screen?
    I think that the recorder only appears in Marty's hands when you actually use it, not just when you equip it.
  • As Javi mentioned, if you see the icon in the upper right corner during gameplay, it means that it's equipped. You won't actually see it in your hands until you use it on Emmett.
