My PS3 can't even Load GTA IV!

18 replies 4467 views Edited May 3, 2008
Im very frustrated right now, I just got my copy of GTA IV yesterday in the mail, I open it today for the first time and It's taking forever to start a new game!!! IDK what the heck is going! It's a brand new game and it can't even be played what should I DO? I don't know if theres something I can do to fix it or if the problem is in the software or hardware.

I had the same problem, no need to freak out. I simply just disconnected myself from the internet and it worked fine. I also deleted the date it first installed and the profile it created (not sure if I needed to) but I did that anyway and it worked fine.

 

I'm not sure what the issue is, but it is crap. I noticed also when I choose quit game from the PS menu it restarts my entire PS3, normally it just goes to the XMB.

Mine is starting to have the same problem, I can't even get passed the loading screen before it crashing now. And don't worry dude, just about everyone posting in this forum is having issues..

Very frustrating!!!! For the first two days, it worked fine, no need to log out never froze, now its freezing on the load, and if it ever does get past that it freezes at random points during missions, and multiplayer. THIS STINKS. How much do we pay to get a game to work straight out of the box?? Enough that it should, not too much to ask. sorry feel better now

I've got 2 PS3's (60 gig models) one is connected to a 720 samsung and the other is connected to a 1080p LG, both LCD, the one connected to the 1080p TV is just now, two days in, having this problem, it won't load the game. I deleted all data, saves and install but he problem persists.
