GTA IV represents perhaps the biggest game launch of 2008, so when there are issues on its first day of release, you’d better believe people will be raising a ruckus.
According to reports from various Webmasters and gamers, GTA IV is freezing-up or locking on the PlayStation 3. Early reports suggested that the GTA IV freezing issues were limited to the 60GB PS3 and/or the GTA IV Collector’s Edition, but as more gamers have gotten home with their copies of GTA IV, reports of freezing have run the board.
While some owners of a 20GB PS3 have experienced GTA IV locking up, owners of the 40GB and 80GB PlayStation 3s have not yet reported any problems.
So far, there do not appear to be any reports of GTA IV freezing on the Xbox 360.
