When it happened to me I thought the world had frozen, then I realised it was just gta online.

If your console never froze then WHY would you bother clicking on and replying to a thread about something you yourself have 0 experience with?

 

Oh yeah, the Internet, nvm...

The GREATEST thing about the Console Freeze glitch was how easy it was for me to solve it once I got it.

I am on PS3 and run into this NUMEROUS times every time I am Online. Last night it happened 3 times in 1 hour, and I couldn't get back on after the 3rd one.

Because I wanted to and to say it doesn't happen to everyone as some people like to claim.

I want proof that it happens to anyone so much as to deem it excessive.

I can only speak from personal experience and that of my friends/crew.

 

Doesn't happen to everybody but it has happened to the majority. It happens to me literally every other day at best and sometimes multiple times per session.

 

Having discussed this with many, the problem occurs on PS3, XBox, PC. It occurs with physical copies and digital. It occurs after clearing cache, restarting, changing settings and it also goes away after taking those very same steps.

 

For *me*, it happens all the damn time.

 

If you check the poll it is obvious it happens to others with some frequency as well.

 

Now stop trolling me every time I try to talk about this issue. Yeah, we get it, am30 has NEVER experienced this! There, you have been validated!

It's not the worst glitch i have experienced (see Test Drive Unlimited 2) and I rarely experience it. I feel sorry for those who do experience it often, it used to happen to me a lot when playing in public with my crew, but now i go to private modes it usually never happens. The worst thing about it is the fact that you have to load up the game again, which takes an awful amount of time. 

 

The best thing is related to the controller choice actually, as my mic runs out of charge really quickly so it saves charge whenever it does happen :p

Known troll. Moving on...

 

The greatest thing about my console freezing is that there is the chance I would have done something awful to other players like get my tank or something so this works as a really excellent anti-griefer barrier as well as a Fan Favorite!

Have not had the problem myself in months and no one I speak to suffers from it, 99% of my friends are UK based if that is a factor (I'm also on the latest Xbox 360 model, and I never remove the disc from the console LOL)... total mystery this bug.


I never take my disc out either, lol. I'm guessing it happens more or less depending on where you live. I read another post where a user from the UK never had freezing issues, either. I get one or two over an 6-8 hour session. At first i thought my console was getting too hot, but then I came to the GTA Forums........

Maybe, I'm from Holland and have only had this happen once or twice, a long time ago. It happened more often on BF3.

I have only had one freeze since 1.12 came out. And I play quite a lot; because my girlfriend also plays on my account... about 30 to 40 hours a week GTA Online...

 

Xbox360 FYI

Haha I'm really from Holland. Den Haag, South Holland. Do people from other parts of the Netherlands really not like it when you refer to the whole country as Holland? I thought you guys did that too. I've never heard people cheering for "Nederland" in the world/euro cup, always seems to be "Holland".

That exercise is nice.  2 nights ago I played GTA Online for the entire night (12 hours straight) with a good friend of mine.  My console actually didn't freeze at all during that time and I was in the same session.  I needed my console to freeze so I could burn those 1.5 calories on my way to the console and back.  Rockstar is trying to make me fat.

OP should make all polls for every topic in the future. Too many biased polls going around, this is how you do an un-biased, totally looking at both sides of the story kind of poll. I feel the OP is one at heart who wants the best for us and would clearly not mislead us when times are so dark. Shine your light on the path we must follow to the river, OP, for we are thirsty for justice! We demand an explaination for this freeze that you speak of. Why are thou freezing when thy weather is warm?

I think the best thing is when the freezes make it so you're controller vibrates until you turn it off.

In soccer we indeed cheer holland; but we are not "hollanders" xD
Its the same calling someone from Scotland a Englishman. ;-)

Its more to show that The Netherlands is more than only Holland, the big cities. ;-)

Well thanks for informing me about that. I'll keep that in mind when talking to Dutch people from outside of Holland. ;)
