No overheating issues here, just a plain glitchy game.
lolol still sticking to that story? Use your head and stop having such tunnel vision. Obviously the same "glitchy" game that doesn't work on an older xbox, will work on a newer one? Hardware, hardware, hardware. Cooling it down resolves some people issues? Even bigger flag! Hop off that there Microsoft schlong, and come to terms that you are wrong.
It's not a debate, your rebuttal is meaningless.
You have no idea what you're talking about. I've been following this for more than the past two pages. Search. Look around. There are many fixes, many issues, many problems. This has nothing to do with defending anybody. This is trying to get working solutions to fix this broken game.
EDIT: Let's do a quick search:

I've had it freeze 3 times already. Once in the first mission, once driving around, and now while in another mission *spoiler alert*....rescuing michael's kid, and trying to drive into another area. I know my system is ok, because every other game I have runs just fine. And my playstation is a slim model, and is in good condition. I really hope they patch it soon. This is a nightmare

Have not been able to play GTA V at all since I purchased it last week. Have done all the troubleshooting measures and nothing works, have even done a PS3 system restore.
I wanted to know if there is anyone on this forum who owns the 60GB fat PS3 who has been able to successfully play GTA V?

I'm on a new slim, right when I put the game in it loads until there are 4 stars in the top right corner and freezes, tried installing on usb and it says disk is unreadable at 35% every time.

I wanted to update my situation.....10 month old slim with HDMI......I got the game on day 1 and it kept freezing on bike repo mission, the first real mission of the game. It would freeze in the same exact spot each and every time. I was going out of my mind. I finally went out and got a new copy (@Walmart) thinking, after reading this thread, that it wouldn't change a thing, but I have been playing for 6 hours now and haven't had a single freeze, crash or reboot at all!!!!!!!!!! I still won't forget about all of you and will continue to voice my concerns about the problems with this game to rockstar and whoever else will listen as I had an awful 7 days of anger and frustration that will not be soon forgotten.

Right i have had a look around.
Early production runs of the Xbox 360 are equipped with a 12x DVD drive, capable of a maximum read rate of 15.85 MB/s
this would suggest that early xbox's will have the Hitachi GDR-3120L dvd drive in the system. as above a maximum of 15.85mbs read speed. newer systems came with a much better dvd drive than the one above.
The dvd drive i have on my 360 slim, is the newest benq drive. its weird that my gta 5 wont work without the usb method. to say the drive i have is the quickest of the 3...

Ok so I have the disc version and I'm playing on a 160gb ps3 with plenty of room on the HDD. Problem is that ill be playing the game for a couple of hours or so but then out of nowhere, no matter what I'm doing, it freezes on me. I notice an fps drop at first and then it freezes.
Is anyone else having the same problem??

I have a very similar problem. I played the game for pretty much 30 hours without any problems, but around 40% in the game it started to freeze at random moments. Now I can't even play for more than 10 minutes before it freezes. All my other games work perfectly. I've noticed the blu ray drive is making a lot of noises (like it's loading constantly), but since it is working with all my other games I came to the conclusion it must be the disc somehow.
I then tried another copy of GTA V... same result. So what is it? Console seems to be working fine with every other game except GTA V! Is it the composition of particular PS3's and GTA V? I'm going crazy here and seems like a lot of people are having similar problems across all platforms and models. Mine is a fat 80GB btw.
I usually know when the freeze is coming. Suddenly I can't bring the phone out, HUD disappears, can't shoot or hijack cars and then it freezes. Only comfort right now is knowing I'm not alone with this problem.

I have played this gta disk about 3 times it worked perfectly all times. Then I went away for the weekend and played the same disk on a different ps3 and a different house with a different router but same account, it worked perfectly again. Then when coming to play it on my ps3 (the ps3 which I played it 3 times on, the original one) with the same router i did before. It got to the "loading story mode" screen where it has a loop of pictures and gives information about the game. This is where it goes wrong, it does not go on further than this it just keeps loading. Nothing is frozen the symbol in the bottom right hand corner is still spinning but does not go into the game.
I cleaned the disk, and cleaned the ps3 laser with a cleaning disk. I first thought maybe it would be a scratch on the disk but that would make the game freeze if I'm correct? (There is no scratches on the disk) I thought it might of been my ps3 so I tried other games and they all worked perfectly.
Then I went back to the 2d ps3 which I played it on to make sure. It worked perfectly. So before I left I deleted the saved data utility and game data utility (I didn't mind because I wasn't very far). I got back to the first ps3 to try it again! It again did the exactly the same thing....
I don't know what to do now and don't really want to buy another disk because someone (my girl friend...) threw away the recite! If you have any suggestions please comment I'll be so grateful or a fix....
Don't really want to delete my saved game because I'm around 70% done

So the game's been running smoothly for the most part on my PS3, it crashed once a couple days after release but worked fine after that. Earlier today i was just free roaming and decided to get my car out from Franklin's Grove St garage to customize it, on my way to LS Customs the radio switched off and then the mini map starting looking all weird, textures started messing up then BAM, the game completely froze again. I put the game on again a little later after that incident, i was free roaming, everything running smoothly, then i went back to the garage to take the exact same car out, drove to LS Customs, this time it let me customize the car, but straight after i took the car back out the radio switched off, and once again, the game crashed.
I'm playing right now and it's running smoothly so far, it's whenever i take that particular car out (the new model Lambo, i forget the name) of my garage the game tends to f*ck up... any one else experiencing anything similar? or am i the only unlucky motherf*cker that this is happening to?

I have had the game since the midnight release, and it is totally unplayable. I have the 120g slim PS3, contacted R*, did the uninstall - file system, data rebuild... no change whatsoever. One day last week I turned it on just to see what would happen and got 5 hours in ( I didn't want to stop b/c I was worried it would crash again ) sure 'nuff... the next day it wouldn't work at all. Freezes during Franklyn's first mission, or on the LOADING STORY MODE screen. I don't understand why there is no communication from R* around this problem... it's a pretty big deal.
