PS3 Version Freezing

Recommended Posts

Guess what? I got to play for 10 minutes again before the game froze. Fucking shitty ass game. Again I collect some armor and head to get a desert eagle and the game froze right before I even got to see what it looked like. Fuck this game I want my money back, all $95 of it too.

I have the 60GB and it doesnt freeze every 10 min eventhough i had over 7 crashes already. I have crashes while loading and randomly while playing the game. It pisses me off like shit cuz each time i gotta restart my PS3. I will try to mess about with some settings like you guys said before.

Mine hasn't frozen once since I made the changes I mentioned earlier, though I've heard that doesn't help some people. Hope it works for you.

You're all just unlucky, my copy has been working fine for the past week. And I am very pleased. 40GB PS3, GTA IV regular edition. I bought it at Ciruit City, they are very realible. Hope it turns out ok.

I´ve had the freezing problem with GTAIV on my PS3 (i have the "old" version of 60Gb from last years release) as well and i have tried almost everything if not everything i guess. Until today when i went down to my local EB-games (Gamestop) store and bought a new HDMI cable (2m double shielded standard hdmi cable) and it finally worked! Thats my tip to everyone who has the freezing problem, TRY IT! I just hope it works for you as well as it worked for me=)
