Rockstar’s recently released Grand Theft Auto 5 has been designed for both the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 in mind (PC and next-gen console support have yet to be announced), however it seems that owners of older Xbox 360 models are reporting that they are unable to enjoy the game properly as the game has been crashing continuously. According to reports, this stems from gamers who might have bought their Xbox 360 consoles in between 2006 and 2008 (whether brand new or refurbished), and if you hit up the GTA 5 forums, you will be able to check out the entire list of complaints from annoyed Xbox 360 gamers.
Some gamers speculate that it could be a memory issue that could be the reason behind the constant crashes. Older Xbox 360 consoles came with a 20GB HDD, and after the game’s 8GB install (presumably along with other games), gamers are left with only a few hundred MB which could account for the crashing. When they contacted Rockstar, the solution provided was a hit and miss with gamers. It basically involves the deletion of the game and clearing the system cache multiple times before attempting to reinstall the game. We’re not sure what else Rockstar is able to do to help these GTA 5 gamers, but any of our readers experiencing similar problems with their console?
