I haven't tried yet, but anyone who has been in a similar position?

Xbox Arcade Version
BenQ Drive

I played the game for approx less than 24 hours all in... Due to the freezing, I thought if I purchased my HDD it should resolve it.

Has anyone fond this to be the case aswell?

My GTAIV only froze twice on my Xbox. It only happened when I played MP. However, it was the first day I got it. After that, it worked perfectly fine. Also, if this may help, make sure your Xbox is in an open space, so it can operate well. Mine used to freeze all the time because it was enclosed. Now it works like fresh out of the box! Hope this helps a little.

Anyone got their GTA IV working for the 360 yet?

Mines was shipped off to MS the other day, hopefully, when it comes back it should be ok.

Its not a crap fest or a travesty, you cannot say that it is because you have not even played it yet, its your xbox 360's problems, not your games..

my problem isn't as bad as many others out there. whenever I call Roman, or he calls me, the conversation will be silent for presicly four seconds, and I will either get an unreadable disk message, black screen, or complete freeze. this has happened on 2 or 3 different disks on a console that runs all other games PERFECTLY. suicidal.gif can anybody help me?

Have you used any cheats? They can cause freezing. I had my PS2 freezing a lot when I played GTA: SA because I used too many cheats at times.

The 360 can't handle the game as well as other games. It's too big to handle for the 360 so it's just on the edge of exploding sarcasm.gif Nah, but it's a huge game and the 360 can't handle it all the time. That's why this never happend to ps3, because ps3 is "one step better" then 360. I have 360 myself but i don't regret anything about it. The 360 controls are better (my opinion), and has better games then ps3. Like HALO biggrin.gif

Yes it is a crap fest and a travesty, it may be a good game in concept but it doesn't freakin work, how would you like it if you payed £50 for a game and it didn't work but held onto it for ages hoping a patch would come out then nothing, it may be only 10% of people experiencing this but the game is supposed to have sold over 20 million so 10% of that is 200,000 and thats just in the UK. that is a lot of dissapointed people.
