I get the same issue. It'll freeze in the middle of gameplay and locks me out of any button options. All I can do is a hard shut down. I still retain my character, so I guess that's a good thing.
Gta 5 (online) keeps freezing PS3
Cant play at all. Any solutions so far? Tried everything. System recovery. Cleaning lens and playstation. Reinstalled... nothing seems to help.

1.04 did not change anything... ps3 keeps freezing on me. It is just gta 5 all other games are working fine :-/
How is it your internet? I'm sorry but the internet has nothing to do with freezing how can the internet make your ps3 lockup that you have to do a hard reset? If it was the internet you would just loose connection not restart your ps3 because it is unresponsive.
Yeah mine keeps freezing like 5 minutes into gta online.
Mine too i things is the update. fix soon rockstar
Same problem here. It was working fine for a while. now keeps freezing on me and crashing my ps3. i cant even play it for more than one job or mission without something going wrong. not happy
Since the latest update i have lot freezes/crashes on the ps3 as well. Seems a bug no internet troubles.
another freeze whats going on
I have not been able to access online since release. The new patch, 1.04, has not fixed the freezing issue. I can play while not signed into psn network but as soon as I sign in everything freezes. If I start up the game while signed in I just get hung up at the loading screen where you choose story mode or online mode. I have uninstalled and reinstalled everything so many times i just give up. Have done a file restore, basically tried everything I could and still nothing.
I'm experiencing the same issues, plus some major slowing down (framerate drop) during gameplay...
similar issues here even went out n got a new disk play for ten mins and it freezes I'm hating this I understand rockstar is trying hard but this is my least favorite online experiance ever.
cabt wait for arkam origins n blag flag to make my autumn worth it.
sorry rockstar but ur ridiculous responses to me emails and complaints and totaly premature release of a game. I'm indiffrent to ur gamea from now on. way to let down the fans.
It happens to me frequently aswell. Pretty much every lobby or Mission I go into always seems to freeze, not straight away but eventually it freezes. I've tried Reinstalling it but that didint do anything. I hope they fix it in the new update because players like me who have paid good money to play this game can't accesses the Online which in my opinion is the best part about Gta V.
Same thing keeps happening to me? Please fix GTA5, please.
I get "kicked by players" right after mission complete. If it loads another session it says that I previously quit a mission and I'm racking up bad player points. If it doesnt load annother session it waits forever on skycam then freezes on the alert session timeout screen. This is very frustrating... Come on Rockstar I love the game I would just like to actually PLAY it every now and then.
please fix this ----- now! i cant play for more than 10 minutes at night. this is ridiculous!
I have the same issue. Started like 2 days ago. I start online and 5 min after it freezes the ps3. I have to hard reset. But something also happened in story mode. I had to go to a mission and when arrived the spot in the map dissapeared but nothing happened. And then when i jit start the game frrrzed and thats when it started
Same problem here this is absolute B.S.!!! I haven't been able to play longer then 10 minutes in days!!!! I've never in my life been so disappointed in a video game gta was always my favorite and now I am starting to hate this game and rack star in general... And even if the freezing wasn't a problem there are millions of little things that piss of many of the online players for an example if your in a crew with someone why wouldn't you have it so you can't aim on eachother so you don't kill each other on accident or when a player online is shooting you but your gun constantly auto aims on the near by pedestrians or cops or how hard it is to get money the only way to stay relevant Is to cheat and that's just a few things that I see everyone I know complain about lol idk if I'm just holding rockstar to high of standards but I just expected better
Similar issue for me.
At first I had very few problems online...other than losing a car right after v1.4 came out. But since 1.4 I have EXTREMELY long loading times - even on system startup...and it keeps getting worse.
First session is usually fine...but if I get kicked to 1st player (such as when kicked from a session), or go to load a new session, I often get stuck staring at the roof of my apartment. The shower or tv can be heard and sometimes other players on chat. Sometimes I can leave it for 10 minutes and it will eventually load...other times I can come back 30 min later and it is still like that. With these you can press PS button and quit the game and reload.
Now, in the last week, the PS3 lockups have started, and are becoming more frequent. For these there is no response and you must do hard reset. At first it seemed to be when crazy things happened...like a friend crashed a heli in front of me and there were about 7 players in close proximity. Was several days after that before the next one...but in the last 48 hours it has happened 3-4 times. The last 2 times I was just driving around randomly in sessions with only a couple other people.
I am afraid it will continue to get worse...as it is I am afraid to change sessions...but if this continues the game will be unplayable.
I wonder if it is data file related. I am now level 108 or so, and have a huge amount of playtime...so there could be a lot in the logs?
Got exactly the same problem since the last patch.. Keeps freezing up after doing a couple of jobs..
I changed the max screen resolution from 1080 to 720p and just after that the 1.5 update came on, so i dont know which action was the one but now it takes a little bit longer to freeze. for example the first time i was playing online and it was fine but i crashed a lot of things and it froze. tha titme i played at least 38 minutes, between the history mode i player 30 mins and online around 8 minutes until it freezed. then the second time i played in history mode and i was playing with trevor all right for around 20 mins but switched to michael and suddenly there was a huge piece of street with no texture but i was going other way when i noticed it, when i saw it i was like what the f..? so i returned to see it and thats where it freezed. I dont want to play anymore :( for extra, before the 1.5 update and chaning the screen resolution, i froze around 5 mins after starting the game. once it happened to me that it was very slow for example i tried to steal a car, and when pressing the triangle nothing happen for 10 secs and suddenly i was on the driver seat, and the radio didnt work and the car was like floating a little. then it froze. it cant be the cd. it must be the game itself. many many people are having the same issues
your's is 1 of many posts with the same Freeze probs all this week pleading with no solutoin from R* that i'v seen...... :( .
My game keeps freezing in the middle of gameplay and I have to restart my PS3
After patch 1.6 there are still the same freezing problems.
@badcharacter After patch 1.6 there are still the same freezing problems.
Yip & the saga continue My game play is none exsistent game dosen't even load now just a BiG BlaCKFreeze screen ...Can u feel the LoVe???
Just downloaded the new update and now my gta online freezes. It works fine in story mood and all my other games work on my xbox. Rockstar you need to sort this out as everything that has gone wrong with gta online has happed to me, like at the start i could not get on for 9 day with out it freezing and now the same thing is happen again. So please fix this.
@BorisTheMade I get the same issue. It'll freeze in the middle of gameplay and locks me out of any button options. All I can do is a hard shut down. I still retain my character, so I guess that's a good thing.
Mine is doing this as well. Still… It's really frustrating… I have tried deleting the game data, tried restoring system files… nothing has worked and I am reluctant to delete my save games files because I have put SOOO many hours into it, plus if I do that I will lose my 500K for being stuffed around by rockstar online (which I have spent on an apartment and car)…
Help us out here Rockstar! Anything...
This keeps happening to me as well. And i hate that people keep saying its your internet connection, when no it is not. I have the fastest of the fastest and best internet and i would know because i pay out my ass for it. Mine freezes too. My boyfriend and i are huge gamers and this is seriously pissing my off. I just want to play. It never did this before and the only way i can turn it off is if i turn my ps3 off manually. All my other games do not freeze. It used to only be GTA V online but now i tried just offline and it did it. Which it hasn't before....I really hope they fix it. I love this game.
Mine keeps freezing too... The worst is when I switch sessions. It will freeze on the loading phase when it is zooming in to my building. It freezes right above my building and I can hear my radio in my place and even see prompts. But all I see on my screen is the building as if it is loading, but nothing happens..... very frustrating.. same thing often happens on the garage.
I'm having the same issues. Freezing in both online & story modes. Can't play for more than a few mins & it'll freeze up or it takes a while to load. This is ridiculous. This only happens with gta so fix it rockstar but if it takes as long as Android app to come out then forget about it.
Same freezes all the time now dident do it before and all m other games don't freeze :/
