Being the owner of a 60 GB PS3 that just happens to not play GTA4 has made for a stressful week and a half. I am a sufferer of the dreaded instant freeze, meaning I haven't been able to play more than 20 seconds of GTA4 and have tried every fix there is, including the patch. Calling Rockstar, Take-Two, and Sony (and not getting any concrete answers), and watching everyone on my friends list play GTA4 while I play another game of Warhawk has been trying. Now Rockstar has finally sent me a reply that addresses the 60 GB PS3 issue:
"Thank you for your patience while we continue to work to resolve this hardware-related issue. We have provided your information to Sony, and they will be contacting you directly to assist in the repair and/or replacement of your PLAYSTATION 3 console.
Once again, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Please provide us with your mailing address and shirt size at your earliest convenience, as we would like to send you something as a token of our appreciation for your patience with this matter.
Since most of us with this problem are WELL outside of our warranty, exactly how much money will it cost us to play GTA4?
