I picked up a copy of killer instinct gold today and was getting the same black screen. I took it apart inspected it. Cleaned it and still nothing. Just out of curiosity I put the game back in. I turned it on and still a black screen but then I removed my rumble pak from the back of my controller and the game started right up. I put the rumble pak back in the controller and restarted my console and again black screen. Once again I removed the rumble pak and the game started right up. It starts right up anytime there isn't a memory card or rumble pak connected to the controller. Hope this helped.
