It seems as though many people have been having problems installing the game, having freezing or texture issues, etc. I wonder how many people are actually experiencing these issues. Please post your experience!

I figured I would, but I'm just curious to know what many of the issues are, as 7 / 9 options in the pool highlight issues (minor to gamebreaking). My PS3 runs way hotter on this game than any other game I have except for Battlefield 3 when online, for example.

I have been trying for the last few hours to get my GTA V on ps3 to work.

It installs but doesn't get past the loading story mode part. I have tried reinstalling it 3 times with no joy.

Think I will try a restore file system to see if that works.

I'll just cut and paste from a different thread....

 

So, I have an Xbox 360.  I put in disc one and it's telling me "There is not enough space on storage device: Memory Unit.".  Any suggestions? I've already deleted past games taking up space.  All I have saved is GTA IV and it's 764 KB and NHL 14 at 34 MB. 

 

What's the problem? Should I delete the 764 KB?

So, I deleted the GTA IV 764 KB, turned off my console and when I was signing into my profile, below it said, "675 G Memory Unit".  Is this not enough space to properly install disc one?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Should I delete the Profiles, the 688 KB? Whatever happened to popping in a disc and playing the damn game?

How much free space do you have? I have a PS3, so I don't know much about the 360, but I would have at least 32, if not 64 GB, of free space for better performance. I've also heard that there are issues on one of the 360 install disks. This is a very intensive game, so the more resources and space you have, the better. I've heard that clearing up and defragging the HD also helps.

had the same problem with my 4gb 360. Rang Microsoft and only solutions are - 1) Buy new hard drive (very expensive) or 2) buy a usb flash drive.  Ordered a 64 gb one from ebay for £11.  Hope this helps.  cant wait to finally start playing

Hi,

1. Don't think this is a PS3 controller prob as I tried 3 but in a middle of a fight phone keeps popping up (taking away my weapons f***k!) - I make sure not to touch the direction button only the L to move but it keeps doing it, there is a kind of conflict here - btw didn't do that in RDR - same thing happens sometimes driving a car it changes radio channel without touching direction button...

2. Garage in Michael safe house doesn't seem to be sure, I tuned a car with a lot of extras, put it there and it disappeared!

3. On reloading a mission one of Trevor weapon disappeared, if I reload the game it's there.

2) Can't access/use any of the internet/online functions.

3) Cant upload ingame phone pictures to gallery

4) Horrible pop-in and texture delays.

First I got a defective ps3 disc at midnight launch. Exchanged it this morning, and now the game keeps freezing. Either when I load story mode or at certain loading points in the first mission it just hangs indefinitely. Not sure if this is ANOTHER bad disc but this is ridiculous.

 

I have never had this happen with a retail games and I'm not sure how you could possibly botch it. I might just refund and wait till it all blows over, too busy to troubleshoot games..

Other than the Social Club servers being hammered, I'm not having any issues. Performance and visuals seem to be pretty much what I expected - steady 30fps, lower res than I'm used to, occasional pop-in.

Game keeps freezing in the exact same spot. It's on the Trevor mision right after he goes to get the sniper rifle. As soon as I get back on the ATV to go to the airstrip, the game freezes. 15 times in a row now. Not sure what else to do.

This game is 720p.  You do know that GTA4 on ps3 was SUB 720p, not even.  Be grateful it's even 720p this time around.  95% of ps3 games are 720p.

 

Anyways, this game is freezing constantly on my 360.  I managed to beat 2 missions but I've had near 10 or so freezes.  Sometimes it happens within a couple minutes, other times it happens within 15 or so.

I've having a problem where the game simply refuses to use my centre speaker on my 5.1 setup. I've confirmed by testing that it's a problem with this game only.

I have a chrome slim 250gb, 720p res on 720p native hd display, both disc's installed and have not had one problem, no texture pop in or pop-in in general. I feel for you guys seriously it must suck cotton donkeys but i hope it works out for you in the end and you can start playing properly :) if nothing works then just get setup like me, slim 250gb..might just solve your awkward problems.

 

Hope i helped.

Hi,

1. Don't think this is a PS3 controller prob as I tried 3 but in a middle of a fight phone keeps popping up (taking away my weapons f***k!) - I make sure not to touch the direction button only the L to move but it keeps doing it, there is a kind of conflict here - btw didn't do that in RDR - same thing happens sometimes driving a car it changes radio channel without touching direction button...

2. Garage in Michael safe house doesn't seem to be sure, I tuned a car with a lot of extras, put it there and it disappeared!

3. On reloading a mission one of Trevor weapon disappeared, if I reload the game it's there.

 

Having the controller issues myself...  I've tried two controllers personally.

 

First one, while driving, the character would just jump out of the car at random spots...  One time I recall specifically was when I was doing a chase and the upper left hand corner of the screen explicitly told me to "hit L3 and R3" to use someone's special ability...  I do it, guy jumps out of the car, mission failed.

 

Second controller, the phone pops up from time to time and the radio stations change at random, as you stated.  Another issue I have had is weapons popping up in my hands when I don't want them to, such as when I'm just driving, or when I was playing fetch with Chop...  I throw the ball and out of nowhere, a shotgun shows up in my hand...  Unless that's the GTA method of training your dog, something's not right...

 

I'll admit, my controllers are relatively old, but I take care of them well and I've never really had any issues of any kind while using them, certainly not to this extent.  I'm debating uninstalling/reinstalling to solve the problem, just to see if it works...

 

Other than that,  found a couple other minor issues while playing:

 

1:  Once, when going to Franklin's garage, there were two of his car in there, one stacked on top of the other...  Climbed in the lower one, backed out and it was fine, but funny.

 

2:  Using Michael, I went into his house and saw his wife in the kitchen, floating in mid air.  Went into the living room and his daughter was standing on the couch.  Went up to his bedroom, saved the game and came back down, daughter was seated and wife was on the ground, though she still wouldn't interact or even face me.

 

That kinda stuff, I can live with...  Could probably live with the phone and radio thing too, but it's annoying and distracting, especially in the middle of a mission.  Any help on solving this would be greatly appreciated.

 

-Bill
