Finally took care of the problem myself.

I got a full refund on the disc version at Gamestop. T

hen I purchased a digital copy of GTA 5 on the PS STORE for PS3.

No issues at all.

I also changed the cable connection to my router and cleared up all online issues.

Now it is the cloud servers failing every once in awhile.

It is working great for me great with the digital copy now.

Love the online. Hate how all missions are now nerfed for the payouts.

$800 to $1000 for robbing stores now.

Used to be $2000+ before patch 1.04.

I got it to work now. I had to wait to install the update after the intro audio is done. 1.02 works great and fixes the problem of getting on GTA ONLINE. Thanks Rockstar,

Go to Game > Game Data Utility > Delete GTAV update file (38MB - 46MB) > Restart game and reinstall updates/patches

I have tis freezing issue as well. I can play story mode but whenever i load the online game....... Locks up. Tried everything to fix it. Even deleted the install and did the 20 min install again, then the patch. I am quite displeased with this. I hope R* has a fix coming real soon.

turn my ps3 on all is fine, once i select gta i was a few secs and it will either be a blank black screen wont show the logo an the little police animation it does. OR It will go past that have a funny colour red an green pixelation in the top right corner then once that goes the loading screen starts then the characters stop hover over the background but the tip boxes still come up and the loading in the bottom right corner just keeps spinning, however the game does not load up.

I am yet to leave it sitting for over 10 -15 minutes as i am not due to buy another playstation 3 just yet.

As well as this all users on my ps3 have lost their characters online atleast twice. And my story mode tended to freeze and glitch out with certain or buildings being blank space and not being able to use certain buttons.

Little help here rockstar please. This game is too epic to see it go down like this. We dont have to tell you that though.

Ok well. All I've heard was people restarting and deleting the Game Data Utility patch. I've done it 15 times already and it still freezes. I've tried 5-6 alternate ways to doing this. It seems like everyone has found a way around the freeze except me. I see about 6 people on my friends list at any given time playing this game. How the hell can I play!?!? Rockstar when are you going to fix this patch?>

Same as you curt dawg. Can delete 1.02 and play offline, but if I reload 1.02 it'll freeze.

I've tried it:

Normal from a start up loading the patch. Waiting a few mins to press x.

Started up in story mode then went online loaded the patch but then it freezes on the reload.

Started up not signed into psn but with the patch got me into story mode, but as soon as I signed back into psn it will freeze.

Also tried all variants with waiting 30 sec's / over 5 mins etc to load the patch.

I even saved the game data to a USB and completely removed the game, the saves and the patch and reloaded the game from scratch to see - but it did not work.

Like you all my friends are online having a good time, which makes it 40 times worse...lol

Will post if it changes.

Cheers

Keep push the x-button as soon as the update starts until you see the ps3 "intro-glitter-stream"thing and it should start updating

Try signing out of psn loading all the way into story mode make sure your character is idle now sign into psn accept the update and that might work :)

In mine It happens too. If I put the 1.02 path, the console freezes at screen (Loading whatever history/online).

I just completed the Game Data Utility delete and it froze on the attempt to reinstall. I haven't been able to play for about a week and I'm kinda getting fed up. These last two updates have been horrible. I cannot believe they allowed these buggy updates to be released.

I was having the same issue it seems that if you certain models of the ps3, you have to wait until the logo/intro video plays before doing the update. Here is what I did:

  1. Load game
  2. INstall patch
  3. Hang, unplug PS3
  4. Load Game
  5. Ignore Patch
  6. Install Game Data
  7. Quit Game once installation is done.
  8. Delete Game Data Patch/Updates File (Not Install Data)
  9. Load Game
  10. Wait past Intro Video for Loading Music
  11. Accept Patch
  12. Intall Patch
  13. Reboot, Reload Game
  14. Game Boots Fine, game plays fine

Hope that helps others.

I've actually did all the patches. i wanted to beat the story mode first before i got into online. I played the story mode without a hitch with the patches. Started online, went through about 1/4 of the intro and it freezes. I also noticed during the intro that buildings and roads and walls would disappear and reappear. I really only wanted to play online since most of the story modes are all the same in the GTA series. Any way to fix this?

Have been having the same issue for ages now. Game plays fine offline, as soon as I'm signed into PSN, freezes at load screen. Tried all the deleting and re-installing, nothing works. This is the most pissed off I've ever been for a video game.

C-Note_7 I have exactly the same problem here even with the new 1.03 patch. I install the patch, then boot up the game and then it freezes the PS3 at the loading screen EVERY TIME. If I sign out then everything works fine and i can play single player offline but the moment I sign in...FREEZE. By the looks of it, only a small minority of players are experiencing this problem, I have searched everywhere and found no solution to this problem and hardly anyone even has this problem in the first place. This is EXTREMELY frustrating as I am the only one of my friends with this problem and they are all playing online (even-though its still buggy as hell) whilst I am stuck on a damn loading screen that constantly freezes my PS3. I have tried EVERYTHING, I must have deleted and re-installed the patch 20+ times now and still the problem persists. I tried have resetting the internet, deleting and re-installing the game and the save files. I have tried installing the patch at different times (including waiting for the game to load properly and then choosing to install) but absolutely nothing has changed. I was hoping it was just a bug with 1.02 but 1.03 is exactly the same. Rockstar needs to acknowledge that their patches are flawed and are shutting some players out of the online experience completely!

Also, I play on a 250G slim PS3 that I bought in 2009 and I have had no problems with it what so ever so it can't be my PS3's fault, just rockstars fault for making a patch that seems to be allergic to my PS3.
