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.
sign out off the psn and then play
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.
i am now experiencing issues
for the first time last night when i loaded the game up, it got thru the slides in the intro and went on to the loading screen, inwhich was the furthest i have gotten, cannot get past that loading screen.
sucks so much cause i wanna play!!!
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.
