Whilst we have had to wait for the release of RockStar’s latest franchise in the UK, our American counter-parts have been ploughing through the detective based open world adventure for a couple of days now. If you were in any doubt as to whether you should buy this game, there may be a couple of factors to consider first.
Do you have overheating issues/bad ventilation/home insurance? That’s right, not wanting to disappoint the awaiting masses, RockStar’s latest blockbuster is quite literally cooking home consoles. Various outlets are reporting of random reboots, system crashes, and in some instances, breakages with the consoles themselves.
Initially pointing the finger in an unofficial blog response at the latest security update (3.61) for the PS3, it is now known that this issue is also affecting Xbox 360’s too, which if true places the fault squarely at the feet of RockStar and TeamBondi.
This is not something which appears to be affecting every machine, we are as yet to find fault with our software or hardware with the game, but may be worth keeping an eye on over the coming weeks.
Our full written review will be up in the next few days, so check back for our thoughts on what is shaping up to be the hottest game of the year.
