gta v keeps freezing when loading up!

15 Replies 6,796 Views Created 17-09-2013

ok i went out and bought gta v this morning from my local supermarket. i had to try a few times for the game to install. it kept freezing on the female cop scene and wouldnt go any further. after switching off n on again it finally installed the game. played the game fine up to the point where i had to go for a ride with chop the dog in the van. got to the yellow destination point and it froze on me. had to use ps button to quit the game. i tried loading the game again and it would allways freeze while the game was loading save data. i unistalled all gta v data and re-installed. playing again i got as far as grabbing the cash from the safe at the beggining of the game but when it came to the point where you open the shutters nothing would make them open?? if i didnt have a shaved head i would be pulling my hair out. pls help me.

I think I've figured out the solution, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE BLIMP! If you have already you must trade in your game for a new one. Delete everything from the old one and make plenty of free space for the new one, complete steps 4 and 3 in that order for formatting, and install the new game. I did this and my game ran perfectly until I downloaded the BLIMP again, stupid. Now the game won't load anymore. Now I have to go and exchange my game for a 3rd time, and I will not be downloading THE BLIMP! Someone is making a lot money causing a lot of consoles to even crash altogether. Not so good for Rockstar with people asking for their money back.

all my other games work fine. I can only think it is certain model ps3s have issues. hope they get to the bottom of it. Otherwise I wasted my money.

I seemed to have found a solution. As well mine has been freezing up for they last few days and has gotten progressively worse. This morning the game would freeze before it even finished loaded. However, I deleted alot of my older game installs and freed up alot of space. The game seems to be running smoothly. For now atleast. Let me know if this works with anyone else

Ahh I can only play for about 15 minutes(sometimes 5) before it freezes. Radio stations stop working, cars floating in the air, running into invisible *****, quality goes back to gta3 times, missing objects, randomly appearing in cars, than freezes. Playstation store just ripped me off after all this waiting. It'd be nice if they could somehow transfer the cash and delete the playstation store purchase and just send me the disc. So mad right now. Restoring my playstation and attempting the third redownload. If anything can be done about this please let me know!!
