GTA 5 freezing :(

Question

AntwonDanahe

Hiya,

 

My game locks up in the first cutscene within 1 second and sometimes it will get to the part just before I take control of the char before it freezes.

 

I've deleted all the game data and re-installed three times now with no luck.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Game does the same thing to me, can't make it past maybe 5 seconds of intro cutscene. Deleted data, cleared cache, having another go at installing the install disc again. Pretty disapointed to say the least.

 

Rockstar, you're trying my patience.

From the Rockstar site: http://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/articles/200148846-How-to-tell-whether-failed-installations-or-crashes-freezes-glitches-are-caused-by-a-bad-disc-or-failing-Xbox-360-PS3-console-

 

Basically, they're saying, do some basic tests, make sure it's not your console or the disc, and fix which it is. At least it's warrantied for a new disc, I'm gonna go in the morning and swap it out.

Looks like it's my PS3, reinstalled with my mates disc and it still locks up. he is using my disc and it's all good.

 

My PS3 has never played up, been playing FIFA 13 and that's been fine.

 

Oh well :(

It just has to be the discs. The RockstarSupport Twitter account keeps saying to try another disk or suggesting it's console issues. Wonder how long before they wake up and realize they've got a major issue here?

are you all sure you've checked the fie system for errors? I've noticed it's a PS3 issue, and that could help somewhat, if the cutscene is reading a lot from the hard drive, then any errors would of course, freeze it.

same issue here on xbox360 keeping an eye on this thread for a fix literally just got home from buying thew game this sucks lol

update i just went upstairs and got my brothers 360 and was able to get through it so 1 of these 4 things fixed it for me

1. different console (most likely)

2. i turned on subtitles

3. instead of being the guy in the red shirt when i entered the car i was the balding guy in the gray jacket

4. my brothers xbox wasnt connected to xbox live...needs an update i didnt feel like installing

hope this helps someone

update 2-started mission 2 on my console and guess what? froze again. so its either a console issue or just because my console is connected to xbox live not sure which but im just going to stick to playing on my brothers for now at least it works

I've been trying for around 6 hours to get mine working now no success on the 360. Keep getting disk unreadable errors, xbox freezing whilst trying to load the game, i even got the first couple of missions done that i got disk unreadable just before the game saved. Tried lots of other games on my 360 and have no problems.

I have the exact same issue. Friend might jump round with his copy till i try installing/playing from that.

 

My disk tray has been awkward recently aswell but i have got to play some of the game. I'm guessing somewhere during installation its went wierd

So I have found the problem why the new gta is not working!!! It needs memory to work so put your ps3 back to factory settings!!! I know it's crap cause u lose everything but if you back it all up on a USB then you won't! But the game won't work if u put your backup bk on ps3 ok!!!!

That was one of the FIRST things I did yesterday. I also did it again a couple hours later. It does not fix it.

With the game installed, I have over 12gb free space. How much free space does this game need??
