GTA IV Multiplayer Down For Some PS3 Players

Kotaku reports:

"Even if your particular copy of Grand Theft Auto IV doesn't lock up your PlayStation 3, you may still find it a challenge to experience the online component of the game".

We've heard from a number of tipsters that they've been unable to connect to the Gamespy hosted servers, with a quick peek at popular online forums reflecting similar complaints.

the ps3 is garabgePM
1.4 -
the ps3 version has worse frame rates
the ps3 version cant not even acheive 2x aa with a resolution of 640p
the ps3 version has a mandotry install
the ps3 verdion cost more in certain retauilers
the ps3 version looks lieka totally defferent game and the 360 version that i have on my hd looks sharp and brillaint any other look will mqake it a joke
360 version only has a slight pop in defference which ive not noticed but maybe after 50 hrs of play i might notice 1 haha i love how things have change how can a multyplatgame of such scle run on the ps3 at 640p with no aa while the 360 version runs at 72o with 2 x aa this is a megaton defference and dont worry guys the bad news have not begun when gears of war 2 gameplay is shown 8 may the major crys will begin p.s i always new 360 gta 4 was superior

Let's try.

Will I even take you seriously? You don't even know correct grammar and doesn't even know how to spell "knew" correctly.

When you say "destroying itself" you mean like getting RROD of something?

Please do us all a favor and off yourself!

This isn't the fault of the PSN so much as it's the fault of Gamespy's buggy network. If I were to have problems in GTA IV online, it wouldn't be the first game to be affected by Gamespy's bugginess.

I am having the same problem myself.

Each time I try to connect to the multiplayer part of GTA IV it keeps on saying having connection problems.

whoever is working the servers for GTA has to get this problem fixed.

legendkilla5513d ago

i could not play online ! and when i was playing the sigle player game it froze a couple of times.. i hope they patch this soon!

The smart ones play on live!

kewlkat0075513d ago

it's one of the reasons I dislike Sony's PSN architecture. They are passing the Buck unto the Devs and some devs have to host server time from other companies,(Gamespy hosted servers,) I mean the opportunity for a mess is always there. Well this is just 1 game, plenty 3rd-party online games to follow.

games4fun5513d ago

for the short time I was able to play the game on the PSN however, my game froze within seconds and has constantly done so. I really hope that Rockstar has a chance or Sony to bring us a patch or Firmware update to bring stability back.
