GTA IV Freezing PS3???

18 Replies 1,923 Views Created 29-04-2008

I've been looking on various other forums and it appears that several people are having freezing issues with GTA IV on their PS3 (Specifically the 60GB launch version). I'm hoping it's just a problem with the NTSC version as I haven't heard any similar complaints from UK buyers.

 

So my question is to all those that have a UK GTA IV on PS3...Have you had any problems with GTA freezing?

 

x   I have my fingers crossed that you haven't!   x

Wait, so America get the PAL version and we get the NSTC version?

 

Because it only seems to be over the water that there is a issue..

Yeah thats what I meant lol

 

< **bleep**

 

Anyway R* believe it may be a issue with a batch with retailer gamestop.. I havent seen any problems with any UK users so far.. but if there is a problem they should get a fix asap because looking at all the boards ALOT of people are getting annoyed..

Re: GTA IV Freezing PS3???

Unfortunately I've had freezing problems with GTA IV on the UK PS3 40gb version (firmware v2.30) purchased last February...so it appears to be a broad range problem for some at the moment.

 

It may well be an issue with the online server as suggested in other forums!

Re: GTA IV Freezing PS3???

I've had lots of problems. 60GB PS3 2.30 Firmware.

 

1. 1st day I played GTA IV it froze solid in game after about 1hr of play....

2. Played online Multiplayer Game (race) came 1st and it just sat there no way of exiting

3. I'm up to mission 'The Shadow' the game intro screen plays then when it says Loading - The Shadow nothing happens just sits there. Choosing quite game causes the Playstation to reboot!!

 

Never had problems with freezing on ANY other games at all. Very dissapointed with Rockstar for such a highly anticipated game.

Re: GTA IV Freezing PS3???

I had no problems until today with this game freezing. Froze 5 times on me this afternoon when loading my saved game up. Only way i can play the game is by disconnecting the ps3 from the internet and thats on a UK ps3 60gb and pal version of gta4.
