Re: My PS3 can't even Load GTA IV!

May 3, 2008


my 60GB ps3 worked with no problems... that is until i decided to install a demo...  after i installed it... it was stuck on "LOADING - XXXXXX" screen.  so i deleted that demo i installed... and magically it worked fined again...  ??? what is the problem here?  i hear on some sites that fragemented hard drive space is becoming problem for consoles... but as a person with little computer knowledge... i know that fragemented disk has nothing to do with locking up a computer... it just takes longer to load....

 

oh yeah, booting up GTA4 takes awhile... but i think it's a decent price to pay since i rarely see in game loading screens

played for 3 hrs the other day. Go to load up today and it won't load. This is BS. Can we return the game?

Mine sometimes will be fine other times it just keeps playing the opening slide show, or doesn't start at all and crashes before it says rock star games. I tried signing out of psn and it didn't work all my other games still work fine on or off psn

Could be something wrong with the game data. You could delete that, and reinstall it and see if that helps.

If the disc is in mint condition and has no scratches on it, then your PS3's Blu-ray drive might be dying. Sometimes the lasers in DVD/Blu-ray drives stop working and need to be replaced. Of course, this is one of MANY possible reasons why GTA IV is not working for you.

 

How old is your PS3? Also, do other discs work on your PS3? Have you tried cleaning the GTA IV disc?
