So I turn my PS3 on this morning, start GTA4 to get a good 40 minutes of progress in to the game, sit back relax and adjust my chair, feeling good.. and….sitting…and waiting…and…waiting, the whole time the picture above is displaying on my LCD. So after 5 minutes of “Loading – Logging” (my last check point) I decide to quit the game. The system reboots my PS3, so I try again. Loading-Logging…..still Loading and loading, so now I’m f*c*i*g disturbed. First thing that came to mind was the saved data might of got corrupted, so I deleted my last checkpoint since I had another that was saved around the same time. I start the game up again and now it won’t even load my last save point, it just started a brand new game, but still just loading and loading not getting passed the loading screen. So I research this sh*t and find out that I’m not the only one with the problem, apparently many PS3 GTA4 owners are complaining of the same issue, and most are stating that last thing they did before this happen was PLAY ONLINE!! Last thing I did before this issue started was “PLAY ONLINE”!! A huge bug without a doubt and a very f*c*ed up thing. Good thing I was only 10 hours in to the game! Right now there is no official fix that I know of, but try the following:
- DO NOT have to uninstall your game, or delete any save files
- Disconnect your internet from your PS3/ or sign off your PSN
- Some are going as far as (Disable ingame messages, and message notices. Disable your Information Board. Disable your screensaver. Then after that, disable Media Servers, then Disable Internet Connection. After that open your Browser( you’ll get a page not found screen) and from that go to tools and delete your cookies and dump your cache.) But not necessary if step 2 works.
Sony fix this Shi*t!! And send me some GTA4 cash, since I now have to restart the whole plot to get Michelle to invite me into her place.
