I'm also getting this. First 2 days, no freezes. Now, I had 3 last night, and 3 today. Getting P.O.'d.
I'm a refurbed launch 60 using composite video. I've got a 250gb drive inside. Wondering if it's only us original adopters ... ironic that the reason I'm refurbed is due to a GTA bug from last year ... Pulling my hair out 'cuz I love this game.

Yea i have a launch 60 and it freezes on me every 5-20 mins. I just reset it and play again because I'm so in love with the game lol. Seriously though, it has frozen on me at least 50 times (literally) now.

Same here.  I was fine for a few days but now it's freezing on me every 15-20 minutes.  Really pissing me off at this point.  5 freezes in the last 1.5 hours.  New Slim PS3.

On top of that...the last time I tried to load it simply hung up again. I had to reboot the PS3 in order for it to load.

I've got the old 40gig and im getting a hard freeze every 10 to 15 minutes. Its freezes at all different times- after i save the game, sometimes wen i first load the game, but most of the time ill just be riding around on the horse killin a few animals and it'll just lock up. Im thinkin about gettin a 120 slim but im not gonna buy anymore ps3s if ima spend 60 bucks on games that dont work. Thats a lotta money.. so far this game and battlefield bc r the only games that do this but still- thats $120 rite there on games that i cant play cuz they freeze like crazy

2 freezes in 13 + total hours of gaming.  Played 10+ hours straight yesterday, too addicting for me.

mine did the same thing, I fell thru the scenery just rung & the screen smeared, so I hit the start button, that did nothing but change the screen to red. I had to shut down by the back button, front did nothing. & now my blue-ray/dvd drive doesn't work. Did this game kill my system?

Mine froze when I went to enter a dual, the screen went black and ps3 wouldn't do anything, this was after about half an hour of starting the game, then last night after leaving the game in my ps3 all night went to play and it wouldn't load at all. Had to take the game out restart ps3 and then put the game back in.
