PS3 Freezing when starting GTA5

9 replies 1826 views Edited Oct 18, 2013

First of all, sorry if I posted this in the wrong section, or whatever, I'm just too frustrated right now to care. Basically, I start GTA, screen goes black, I have to restart my PS3, I deleted my saved file and then it only gets as far as the loading screen and then it freezes. I'm really, really, tired of Rockstar's crap, I mean how did any of these reviewers give this game a 9/10 when the online is underwhelming...IF YOU CAN PLAY IT. 

 

 

Anyway, anybody have any idea on how to fix this? I searched around for answers but couldn't find anything.

Does this only happen with GTA5? Is it on disc or PSN store bought?

It's disc, and I tried some of my other games and they work just fine. :smileysad:

I'm guessing the disk in good condition? No scratches or damage?

Yup. I actually deleted a saved filed and now it got me past the black screen, but it freezes on the loading screen. It's very weird since i was playing fine just yesterday.

Delete the GTA 5 Game Data, and then reinstall. The save file won't help any.

Thanks, I'll try that. 

 

 

EDIT: It actually works now, I didn't really do anything new, just downloaded Rockstar's new patch or whatever.
