Right so I'm thinking I wont install it.
Yesterday I had my characters deleted but kept my money
Today I see the update is out so i downloaded it and it froze my ps3 a couple times, but i finally managed to get it to work. Then i try to go online and my new character and my money is gone. What a great update
Probably for the best. I went to install the patch today and it hard-crashed my PS3; booting back up it forced itself into filesystem restore, which failed at 21% leaving me the only option of formatting the HDD. Prior to this I'd not seen the filesystem restore dialog for over a year, and GTA V's been the only game to consistently crash or hang on me for ages. Probably just a coincidence, but I doubt I'll be playing the game again all the same.
Ohh that sucks big time Sorry to hear that..
Funny, when GTA IV came out, I played it for 15 minutes and my xbox 360 Red Ring of Death'd...
Now GTA V came out, bought the digital version for ps3 and had insane amount of trouble with downloading and installing it... And now the online is giving us trouble.
Lol.. Rockstar really seems to push the very limits of consoles with their games.. Or maybe it's just coincidental... Who knows
More like they've got some quality people working in some departments (world design / story), and some monkeys working in others (feature coding).
Every time I try to download the patch it freezes my PS3 and won't even turn off... Well done Rockstar.
This happened to me, and I ended up losing everything - some 6 - 7 years of downloaded content. I have a backup from 6 months ago, but it's getting to 1% left and failing for some reason. Try deleting the game data and then re-install / patch?
