I've just gotten back into this game over the past 3 or so weeks, and since then it has started freezing during both online and single player. When it does this I cannot access any menus or even use the PS button on the controller.
No other game does this only GTA V. It is not my internet, the PS3 nor is the disc scratched or damaged in any way. Sometimes I can tell when its about to freeze as the pause menu wont work and/or the graphics suddenly turn horrible, other times it will just randomly freeze, forcing me to press the power button on the PS3 console in order to get out of it.
I've tried cleaning my disc, tried removing the HDMI cable and re-inserting it thinking it might have been loose but the problem still persists. PSN just updated recently to the latest version and still have the issue so it clearly isn't that either.
I'm lost, this frustrates me quite a lot as I do enjoy playing this game. Could it be another glitch, bug or some kind of error that Rockstar don't give a rat's behind about?
Also have any other PS3 users been experiencing this issue lately? It has only started doing this about 3 weeks ago. Sometimes I get 5 minutes of game play sometimes I get half an hour, sometimes I'll get a few hours.
