To whom this may concern,
I have recently purchased GTAV and find it unplayable due to freezing, pop-in, blurred textures, and a number of other graphical/technical issues. I have a new slim Xbox 360 and have followed the instructions you have set out. I have swapped the disc at my retailer. I have cleared my cache. I have tried playing with both discs installed and with only disc 1 installed. I have searched your support threads and came across this - http://support.rocks...-hardware-issue - and I think it is worth noting that I have both Max Payne 3 and L.A. Noire and experience none of the issues listed. I also have many other non-R* games that run without issue.
I am appalled at the sheer amount of glitches in this game. The quality of this game is unacceptable and I would like to know if you are working on a fix for these issues. I will be reporting these issues to several local media outlets and will attempt, through word-of-mouth, to advise fellow consumers of the technical issues in GTAV.
Also, to add to that post, my 360 is a 250GB slim from 2012. The best performance I have got from this game was by installing both discs to HDD, turning off vibration, and clearing the cache before every restart. When it starts to lock up and roads vanish etc I go to dashboard, clear cache, and reload. It's a pain, and the FPS drops and pop-in are still there, but it gets me an extra twenty to thirty minutes of play time.
EDIT: I've also tried playing this on my premium from 2009, my launch model and my brother's elite - all of which suffer from the same issues.
