Freeze in loading screens (Heists)


Recommended Posts

Hi there, PS3 player here and I registered here to see if I can find a solution to the problem I've been having lately.


Ever since the Heists update has come out, it seems like my loading screens continue to freeze. For instance, when I've completed a job, it takes forever to return to a GTA online session. The freeze also occurs when I want to view other players joining a job. The freeze lasts several minutes and I can't do anything in the meantime. The playstation does respond to me pushing the PS button, so somehow it seems to be in the game itself.


The funny thing is, when I play together with my brother (also PS3), he does not have the same issues. He has normal loading times.


Last weekend I restored my PS3 to the factory settings to see if that would change anything. Sadly, it hasn't.


Does anyone have an idea what it could be? I find it very frustrating. In stead of being a fun game to play, it has turned into a waiting game in stead.

Current gen systems have the same issue, just not as often. There really is no fix but from what I've read, try going into a private lobby, inviting friends for heist and go from there.

You think that's bad? My game (also PS3) tends to freeze for 10 minutes when going into the menu, using the phone, entering the garage, using the bongo...


I found that when the game messes up like this, I need to quit the game completely and restart it, then it may behave for a few hours until it feezes or disconnects for some other reason.


Oh yea, when I'm starting the game, I need to boot into story mode, and go to online from there. If I press square while the story is loading to go into online directly, it can take half an hour to load, generally to a connection error so it boots me to story anyway.
