For me, putting the freeze issues down to server side problems has the MOST credibility.
It's the most obvious aspect of the game that could easily affect both XBox and PS3 platforms.
So, I resisted the temptation to delete my saved games, as so many hours are invested in them.
It's a shame that this advice is on so many websites - I even included it myself in a post that contained half a dozen steps of things to try from Take 2.
Freezing continues for me, but very randomly, so it's hard to tell what change to my setup has made a difference. But the fact that it works on my, for example, third attempt in a row - when the console, software and setup has remained constant and unchanged on those 3 attempts - can only indicate an external factor.
So I'm going to keep signing out and hoping that's it. But I am a bit annoyed that the much-touted multiplayer section will remain off limits to me.
The best bit though, if it is a server side issue, is that Rockstar can resolve it in their own time - without recalling or redistributing CD's to players. That would be a financial disaster for them, and time consuming for us.
So I suggest people give signing out a go before anything else, and report back here if it helps them. Maybe it's time for a new POLL mods ;
1) Has signing out of PSN stopped you freezing up, Yes or No?
