According to those gamers that own an Xbox 360 that was refurbished between 2006 and 2008, they are experiencing freezing and crashing consoles. Of all the complaints, it would appear that there is a cut scene right after the first mission and that is being blamed for the issues that the console is having. Initially, some gamers were thinking that the smaller hard drives were to blame for the issues caused by the game, but those that have larger hard drives installed on their Xbox’s are still reporting the issues.
Over the last few days a list of solutions have been getting tossed onto gaming forums and blogs, but none of them seem to be a real fix for the issues that users are reporting. The most popular solution being one that requires you to completely delete all gaming data, clear your system cache, delete marketplace data from storage and unplug your system for up to 3 minutes. Moving forward, you would insert disc 1 and power the console down without putting the second disc in. Restart your console and immediately insert the second disc.
That advice is coming directly from Xbox Live support and even though it might seem to work for some, the advice does not jive very well with Rockstar’s Guidelines about not installing both discs. Rockstar has been made aware of the issues that some gamers are experiencing and now it will be only a matter of time before the company responds to the complaints.
