Rockstar Games have released a patch for the PlayStation 3 version of GTA IV. The patch will fix the freezing issues reported by gamers since the game’s release last week. The 18MB update will "prevent GameSpy’s servers from being overloaded," making the online component of the game more stable. In turn should reduce “the impact on those servers that were causing the game to stutter and lock up.”
The update will hopefully fix all the freezing issues reported by gamers. This will mean that you no longer have to disconnect from the PSN in order to play the game.

Applied the patch to my 60gb PS3, installed GTA IV, lock up ensues. Contacted Rockstar, no timeline for a fix after 8 days of this B$. Not buying any more Rockstar titles. In fact, probably trading all my Rockstar games in as I can’t stand to look at them. Didn’t Rockstar make millions off of Sony’s consoles? This is how they repay us? Screw them.
it’s not their fault it freezes.
calm yourself down.
they’re working hard to get a fix and they’ve said how many times they’re so upset about the freezing. not only that but it takes time to get a fix for something like this. i was surprised they had one so soon.
