gta v freeze & infinite loading screen

I really have a lot of trouble with my game ! I have played gta v PERFECT ! every day since the realese without any kind of trouble on my PS3 slim. Then after the patch 1.05 as MANY other players .. my game just startede to freeze randomly at strange moments (IF i´m lucky to play it) Most of the time i´m just stuck at the infinite loading Screen. & can´t load the game .... ! ¨

I have read that MANY other players have got the same problem and are really angry over that the problem isn´t solved yet !
We really need an explanation from Rockstar & a solution on the problem so we can hopefully get the game going again.

I have tried to uninstall the game and install it again -Nothing helps ....
I have tried to restore the filesystem on my PlayStation 3 -Nothing helps ....
I have also tried to play the game without my saved game data -Nothing helps ....
The is absoluteky NO scratches on the disc at ALL !

My ps3 is playing ALL games perf. !

Just not Gta V after that patch ....
We are MANY people with this problem out here ! And we need a solution now !

I hope that Rockstar is commenting this ! or anyone else has got a solution.

ATTENTION Hi everyone ! I created this post for nearly a month ago .... Haven't played since, have been stuck at the infinite loading screen.... i had restored filesystem and database and uninstalled the game and installed it again at least a hundred times :l

Btw. I have found a solution on the problem. I tried one of my friends disc which works on my playstation perfectly.... The problem is the disc... Try another disc and it might work for u !
I haven't got any deep scratches on my Gta V disc so today, i have returned it to the shop i bought it in. They r sending me a brand new gta v disc to me.

I hope that all of u guys can solve your problem on this tip....

@Jlinplayer Same prob ?

Yeah, started with the game crashing periodicly after patch1.05, got worse and worse, after 1.07 the game just infinitely loads. If by some chance i do get it to load it freezes witin 2 minutes. Game is truly unplayable. Tried everything, deleting all files, including saves, restoring files and database, exchanged disc for a brand new copy, cleaned the console and laser. Nothing makes a bit of difference, and the game plays everything else just fine. I would try the digital version, but i am not about to pay for the same game twice, especially if i don't know if that will even work.

Getting really sick of this. I have owned every gta console game made, its my favorite game ever, and i have been a loyal customer. The lack of support on this is really dissapointing.

I Can only agree with you ! Having absolutely the same probs ! & have been a loyal costumer to all the games in the GTA series !

I´ve played for 1,5 hours now GTA..... I uninstaled the game and installed it again this time without the updates ! * -1.0 version (before the1,5) works perf. (so far!) but Can´t play Online without the newest updates. They really need to fix this very soon, cause the problems have been over for more than a month now. :l

ps3...The day after I downloaded latest patch 1.08. Ive tried EVERYTHING suggested by rockstar in another topic but they firmly believe its a console problem. So I tried the same game on 2 systems. Nothing. I tried 2 copies of gta 5 on the same console. Nothing. I tried 2 copies of gta 5 on the 2 consoles. Still nothing. I cant get a successful download no matter what. The ONLY thing i did notice sometimes it would ask me for a usb with 4.53 firmware. Something incapable with the audio files? Idk. Whatever it is my 70 bucks just bought me the knowledge to be wary of rockstar games.

Im a Bethesda fan, maker of fallout and skyrim and i have never seen such a poor quality programmed game ever. Ive never bought an unplayable game until gta 5. And even on how rare this occurrence seemed to be at first, knowing another person that this is happening too personally quickly made me realize this is an issue.

If I were to guess, the problem lies in with the ps3 firmwares audio files.

I can confirm this on xbox 360 and my version of the game has worked fine all the way up until today when i logged in to Live and updated the disc. Now every time i go to load a saved game it does the same thing as everyone else in this forum - infinitely loads or freezes so i have to turn my xbox off. No scratches, no hardware problems, just a bad update.

When does your xbox freeze? Mine just started freezing every time I try to go online.. It lets me play single player but when I try to join online it freezes after about 5 seconds every single time!! Is anyone else having the same problem?

Me and my boyfriend have two Xbox's set up right next to each other and we are both stuck on the loading screen, it does the circle thing a few times then freezes right in the middle of the circle. We are trying to install the game on our Xbox see if this helps, if not then we are screwed. Rockstar - Sort it out.

Mine did the same thing. Clear your system cache and it should work.

I'm pretty sure this will go away once the hackers do. Rockstar is probably too busy with them and they dont have time to deal with this probably easy fix to a major problem

Same problem!!
I can load single player fine. If I try loading online through initial loading screen it just stays loading forever... If I go into single player and try loading that way it freezes the system. If I try selecting character that works, but then when I select and go load.. Same problem it freezes the system when " joining GTA online"

What the hell is this BS ?!? R* get this fixed ASAP !!!

Exact same thing is happening to me right now. "Joining GTA Online" in bottom right corner, then the yellow spinner next to it stops. Can still hear the wind, but otherwise the PS3 is completely unresponsive.

I am able to get into the regular game, but not online. Frustrating.
