there have been a hellava lota people getting this problem. doesn't seem a little odd that all of these people who all own GTA: Vice City all of a sudden their PS2 which were working perfectly fine 1 day and all of a sudden just went bad after playing Vice City. i think that there is a possiblility that VC is causing paticular ps2 models to break down. lets find out, zero whats the model# and serial # of your PS2.

Same thing happened to me, a month after my goddamn warranty on my ps2 ran out, so i dismantled my ps2 & cleaned the lens properly (in my experience, lens cleaners aren't very effective.) My ps2 now loads faster than it has done in ages. It was a last resort before going out to buy a new ps2 tho. I guess the ps2 is just highly sensitive to dust. :yingyang:

I've started having that problem as well, but the game doesn't freeze and die completely.  It just stops for a few seconds, then keeps on going.  I think it's the 'New Data Streaming Technology' that does it.  The CD is constantly spinninbg in the drive, and that can't be good for it.  Most games just load the data off the CD and then play, but VC just keeps on loading, even after hours and hours of intense play.

yeh, same thing happened to me, i will play for aboot an hour, then my ps2 will start making noises and freeze. i cleaned my system and it worked good for about 2 hours, then it started up again. sony needs to make a cold air intake for the front of the ps2 :D

hmmm that sounds wierd, we cleaned our the day vice city came out and havent had to clean it sense although we have had maybe one crash and alittle bit of lag inbetween loading after a death but it always works fine for a few months.
