Where my Xbox boys at?

Wawdy, still mad at Sony cause all ur HDDVDs are only good for Christmas ornaments now?
Whats good man?

Nah, I still watch my collection of HD-DVDs ... not sour over the fact that HD-DVD is dead.

But funny you should stray offtopic when the point at hand is the lackluster performance of the PS3 version of GTA 4 ... Just playing. But it is noted that the x360 version runs at 720p and has 2x Anti Aliasing, as the PS3 version runs at 630p and no AA!

And what about the PS3 having freezing issues runing GTA 4?

GTA IV for the Playstation 3, having Freezing Errors?

Alright, so I got home from the midnight release with my copy of GTA IV Collectors Edition unpacked it live on the feed installed and guess what, it froze! I tried a couple more times and it even have reinstalled 3 times, it still keeps freezing. I am not alone, from the looks of it, it is the 60 GB Launch PS3that is having the problems and might be just the Collectors Edition of GTA IV. Jeffrey Tavares has the regular edition and a launch PS3 and is now running the Live Feed. I will keep everyone up to date as much as possible!

UPDATE: It looks like there are multiple a.ssumptions. First off it is not only the Collectors Edition, so far though I have only heard of 60 GB version freezing. Although thing which is the latest I have heard from Tech Support is that it may be a Shotty Batch of games that have been sent to GameStop. If you are having this problem and did not get at Gamestop Please let Tech Support know at the following Number(s) America: 1-866-405-5464 or Canada: 1-800-269-5721

UPDATE2: It is not just 60 GB Launch PS3s, I know 60 GB PS3s that are not launch and launch 20GB PS3s having the problem. I have just attempted a quick format (full one takes 3 1/2 hours so not trying) and installing GTA IV Again will update once I know something!''

UPDATE3: So the Quick Format did not work, and it is not only the PS3 having these problems it appears. I am also finding reports of Xbox 360's having Lock up issues. I do not know if it is wide spread or even related to the Playstation Issues. I am currently re-installing GTA IV for the 5th time this time after a Quick System Restore in which it erased the Hard Drive and reset all the default system settings. As soon as I know more I will update.

UPDATE4: Well the quick system restore didn't do anything. I had all the extras disabled and didn't help one bit. All I can suggest currently is to call where you got your game first thing when they open and tell them to give you another copy to try. Good Luck to all!

UPDATE5: I have now gotten a couple hours of sleep tonight and just got off the phone with GameStop. He said that I could just bring in the game case (since I bought the collectors edition) and he will swap it out with the regular one since the game is the same, you just got the extras. I cannot head there till around noon so I will update everyone once I get the new one and I know if it works.

UPDATE6: I have now tried the Second Disc, with no luck. The game froze during the Intro. Sadly I still have not gotten to see the whole thing yet. I decided to try 1 last thing which is a FULL Format which is supposed to take 3hours and 35 min.

I have the 60GB PS3. I just picked the game up today and I'll check when I get home.

Maybe the DLC content is a fu*kING FIX FOR THE PROBLEM.

IGN already stated that the PS3 looks better and has better Anti Aliasing. WTF are you talking about. Did you test the AA to get a different result. the writer in the post didn't even state anything about the AA. So just where are you getting this from

I haven't had one freeze yet and I'm 15+ hrs in, but I've been reading alot of people have experienced it. Rockstar said that you have to delete your install data and reinstall and it fixes it or something. Google it

Wawdy, it's funny how you're the only person who thinks the 360 version is superior when all the comparisons I've read so far from reviewers disagree with you.
