Hey guys this game for some reason freezes a lot for me. It happens both offline and online. Offline it seems to be a random times when I am driving. Online it's always when it's looking to join a match.
I never really had problems with freezing on my PS3 before, save for a few instances in a couple games, but I knew EXACTLY when it was happening, and it wasn't random like Midnight Club.
I've had the exact same issue when trying to join online mathes... It's happening way to often, becoming really really really annoying. really
I believe the game has completely frozen up on me a couple times where I actually have to hold the power button on the PS3 and reboot, but maybe only 2 or 3 times when I played it for long sessions, so I'm not to upset.... However, this damn glitch when trying to join an online match happens all the time to me and another friend. We always have to press the PS button and quit the game, then restart and hope it goes through successfully.
Hopefully Rockstar has a patch in the near future to fix the problem.
The only freezing issues i had were early on like a few here with 2+hour play sessions. But there is a failsafe method for thsee freezes IF you get the indication..
Usually when the game is about to freeze (on my system) I will notice the "engine" sfx for the cars will not make a noise. All other SFX work just nothing for cars..like engine,tires,nitrous or abilities.
When this happens...just quit the game and whoala! No freeze and you knew it was comming.
