There's a post about this already. I will copy what I wrote there:

 

 

 

So, this is getting funny... I didn't have any problems at all when playing the first night, but last night my GTA4 froze 3 times in less than an hour!! The first time it happened was when I finished the multiplayer tutorial; the second after leaving the game on pause for five minutes, and the third time was when I just started the sixaxis tutorial!! Everytime I had to turn off the console I had to keep pressing the on/off button for about 5 seconds. Why don't you try to do the same tutorials and pause the game to check if you are saved from this issue? Good luck!

 

 

 

Come on guys, has someone tried it?

Yes, I'm having the same problems, and mine is also a 60GB with an upgrade to 250GB. Had several lockups last night, and just stopped playing in the end. Played again tonight with no problem, except for my DS3 functioning incorrectly when I went into the pause menu. The only button that would work was the PS button (i.e. couldn't scroll through menus or exit the pause menu using circle). I used the PS button to turn off the controller, and turned it back on again - was fine after that. However, on exiting the game via the PS button menu, the PS3 paused for ages before giving three beeps and shutting down (rather than going back to the XMB).

i haven't had it lock up or freeze on my 60gb ps3 yet & had it on for 2hrs last night.    i haven't taken it online yet so it might be worth trying it offline & see if it cures the problem.

I've the 60GB, all original with 2.3 firmware.

 

Have only played on GTA IV for an hour or so. Encountered the freezing / crashing when I did the sixaxis tutorial. Loading the gun was fine, but when I started going round the circuit on the motorbike everything just froze, accept the music. My PS3 wouldn't respond to any of my controllers commands, I turned on my spare and couldn't get control. Only get out was the power button for 5 secs (the touch sensitive one as opposed to switch).

 

Thought I'd share, just in case it becomes a common issue at certain parts of the game doing certain things - then maybe developers can track it down.

I seriously hope I don't run into any of these lock-up problems but I fear I may be experiencing the beginnings of them. The game keeps locking up for a second every now and then, it's not major right now and I hope it doesn't get worse or else I'm gonna be pretty unhappy.

 

I hope Rockstar issue a fix soon.

I have a PS3 with a 250Gb HDD, from a 60Gb UK model. I must admit, I've had no problems at all, apart from the joy of being thrown through the windscreen in a head-on collision... Sorry dude.

Mine has frozen once, for about a second, then play resumed, god knows why....

It happened as I started walking after a cutscene had just ended.

Maybe the game demands too much of itself?

 

I'm all good for now though, although it's really tempting to cheat and spawn a helicopter lol!

 

Yet to try the cover-system, looks good though!

I have had the game freeze than start after 10 seconds and I have had it crash when exiting the multiplayer tutorial. Apart from that it's been fine. The frame rate has not been too bad, though I'm expecting there to be one or two problems in the future as it's rarely at a full 30 fps.

Exiting the multiplayer tutorial? ME TOO!! XD There's a problem for sure. Now we are 3 people with a crash when exiting the multiplayer tutorial. Now try the SIXAXIS tutorial... Good luck! XD
Thank God Rockstar is working a solution!

GTA just froze on me too 23 hours in. I haven't used the multiplayer yet, but wen this happened the green 

light on my ps3 started to blink like crazy. I tried to boot it up again and it froze again. I tried to delete the game 

data and take a reinstall, but nothing. 

Then I remembered the green blinking light, and I disabled my internet connection. IT WORKS ANGAIN!!!

I think that the game tried to connect to the servers to do something when it froze.

I also tried to enable my internet connection again and it freezes again. So no multiplayer for me?

I think it tries to contact the servers for stattracking, the social club, and fails (the green light). I also noticed this when it auto-saves sometimes. And some small hiccups in framerate when the green light is blinking.

 

Edit:

I just tried to just sign out of psn before I booted the game, and it worked! and I can sign in to multiplayer from the game. strange.
