GTA V is the biggest game of the year by far, and it’s most likely the biggest game ever as far as sales are concerned. If you’re a long time Xbox 360 gamer, and are still using your old system, you might have noticed a hell of a problem. It appears that GTA V is not playing well with the old, original Xbox 360 models.
Many folks with Xbox 360 manufactured/refurbished from 2006 to 2008 are reporting that the game is causing their systems to freeze up and crash after about 30 minutes of play. It seemed likely at first that the issue was caused by the small, 20 GB hard drives many of those units have, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. After all, some folks with bigger hard drives purchased later was reporting the same issues.
At this time there is no response from Rockstar about the issue: after all, this has been happening over the weekend. But I can’t say I’m too surprised either by all this happening. After all, GTA V seems to be perhaps the most sophisticated game (on a technical level, mind you) to come out for the Xbox 360 in its long run. It’s no wonder why some of the old systems are having a hell of a time keeping up.
