Sony Unaware of GTA 5 PSN Issues

Gameranx: "People are upset over the GTA 5 technical problems on PSN, but Sony hasn't noticed the outcry." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3)

I'm having issues with my PS3 retail version of the game, it's freezing, frame rate drop, pop ups and graphics washed, what could be the issue guys :(
M-M  +   800d ago
I never had any of those problems apart from aliasing and I have the downloaded version.

Obvious troll is obvious...

It happens from time to time.

Yesterday I had some issues with parts of the map disappearing and reappearing but that's it.

Today its only happened once so I don't know what's to blame =/

What is with this new redundancy fad?
Fergusonxplainsall  +   800d ago
I downloaded the PSN version and I've noticed no problems at all. The ferris wheel showed up and everything( so no pop in). No freezes for me:D

My friend has the Xbox 360 version. I wont get into it but the ferris wheel had a delay in popping It don't matter still a great game.

Lies are these!

Just to let you know guys that I'm not hating on the game, trolling or anything believe me I love the game so much, I'm just wondering why I'm experiencing these issues that's all

There's too many variables to consider that no one here can answer ur question.

Its something that needs to be addressed to rockstar, not sony. Rockstar will figure out what the problem is and let sony know.

Ur first comment is a obvious troll while ur 2nd comment is either damage control or playing stupid.
TrevorPhillips  +   799d ago

I wasn't trolling at all, I am literally having these problems even for my brother
WildArmed  +   800d ago
Have you tried deleting the install files and re-installing?
TrevorPhillips  +   800d ago
I'll do that as soon as I jump on my PS3
XboxFun  +   801d ago
That is very sad to hear that Sony doesn't care or seem to know about the issues some people are having with the downloaded version of GTA V.

Maybe Sony or R* should pull GTAV off the network until they can get these problems resolved with a patch or something.
JustPlay4  +   800d ago
Lets not be over dramatic, it sucks for the people that are having issues,but pulling GTAV off the network is overkill and would PI$$ off a lot of people

they should have fixed soon I hope, as for them not noticing the people having problems who knows why
SilentNegotiator  +   800d ago
You wish.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   800d ago
What problems?! I played till my PS3 almost exploded. I noticed nothing but awesome.

I do know R* looks in to all problems and releases patches quite often and Sony will be getting in touch of R* if problem escalates.

People act like hey let's troll and make up a BS problem to make our game cooler(Xbox)..That's what I personally think. It's a trick. Acting like they won't do nothing is silly, they will act if it escalates..Which it hasn't.

Damn Troll

Or maybe there aren't any issues, and they're genuinely confused. Your XboxFun trolling aside, my version has been running perfectly since midnight Tuesday, for roughly 18 hours a day without a single issue. Aside from insomnia.
FamilyGuy  +   800d ago
Hmmm, MS doesn't have day 1 digital huh?
Mad the digital version wasn't an option or something?

Also, doesn't the 360 have an issue with running poorly if you install disc 2? As in the devs suggest that you only install disc one. Meanwhile on PS3... one disc.

Yes the 360 does have issues when you download the same as the PS3 day 1 download. This article is about the problems of the PS3 not the 360.
Zancruz  +   800d ago
That's crazy, I haven't notice any problems...
JackStraw  +   800d ago
me and my brother both downloaded the digital version and neither of us have experienced any of these issues. i've had one minor freeze happen to me, but other than that, the game runs incredibly smooth.
PoSTedUP  +   800d ago
i heard about the digital version having problems very similar to the 360's if you installed the second disc. im sure they'll fix it soon. maybe theyll even fix All the little issues too, thatd be dope.
LordMaim  +   800d ago
Nope, it doesn't.
SIRHC13  +   800d ago
After lengthy sessions, some environments just begin to downright not load on my PSN copy. Kind of frustrating.
STK026  +   800d ago
I have the PSN version, but I haven't tried the game yet, as I was too busy. Hopefully it works well.

But quite frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if things were as bad as some websites are reporting, as my PSN versions of GTA:Vice city stories and Liberty City Stories both suffered from poor framerate compared to the retail versions, and despite a few emails with Sony and RockStar, the issue has yet to be solved.
Fergusonxplainsall  +   800d ago
Vice City, San Andreas and GTA3 all had pretty bad FPS back then if not PC or XBox versions. XD

I expect their PSN counterparts to be sort of alike.
Especially the PSP then ported to PS2, GTA stories games. Not hating!

You just really notice it now cause your eyes have adjusted and on those Liberty/Vice City story ports PSP to PS2 are really noticeable.
BLAKHOODe  +   800d ago
I downloaded it as soon as it was available and I've had no issues at all. The game has ran fine.
Harpers_Ferry  +   800d ago
I'm about 12 hours into the PSN version and haven't had a single problem so far.

Not even the usual crazy GTA launch glitches.
isarai  +   800d ago
Maybe people having issues should try freeing up some space and/or rebuilding the database (google it, it's easy to do and risk free)
