I'm assuming you're already into the game, and you saw my post about the PS3 freezing on startup with GTA4? The answer was to re-install the game on your memory card, and Sony claims that will fix it.
If you've already been able to start the game and play, I have to assume the disc is bad, based on the fact that it always happens in the same spot.
I'm at 91%, 36 out of 50 accomplishments and a level 4 in multiplayer. It doesnt happen in the same spot rather it just happens. One time i left my mansion, stood on the street and it froze. I started the console over, this time i was able to call a cab, drive to strip club. I go to run and freeze. I turn the console off and on, try multiplayer instead of the actual game. During the game it freezes like 3mins into it. Its frustrating and annoying. Its not the system because I just played other games...nba2k8 quick game and online (kicked this guys ass by 20, kapono had 34 with 7 3pters). I mean the game is running as I type fine. But GTA4? I'm afraid of putting it in only to have the friggin freeze.
Maybe its the game? I goggled and noticed in other forums similar complains not just with ps3 but 360 users like me as well. I really dont feel like the hassel of sending it back to get a new one. Wish this happened Friday that way atleast if i sent it out I'd get it early next week (tuesday/wed).
How do i restall the game on my memory card? Or is that ps3? I'm clueless. Relatively new with the machine (only had it for a month).
