Microsoft has responded to the various crashing issues that are plaguing the Xbox 360 version of the recently-released multiplatform video game, “GTA 5.” According to a report by ABC 10 News on Oct. 9, some players are having technical difficulties when trying to play the latest installment of the “Grand Theft Auto” series.
Dave Allen, one of the customers, could not get his early-generation console to read the play disc of “GTA 5.” Other players reported that the open-world action-adventure video game suffered from loading and crashing problems on Xbox 360 systems that were manufactured before 2009. You can check out some screenshots from the latest “Grand Theft Auto” video game in the slideshow near the top of this article and the comments from Dave Allen below (courtesy of ABC News):
This one here is an early generation Xbox 360. You have a 2 disc system. You have an installation disc, and then a second game disc. It didn't read the disc, it acted basically as if there was no disc in the tray at all.
A spokesperson from Microsoft responded to the complaints by saying that the software “pushes the limits” of the older Xbox 360 units. The game also requires 8 GB of free space for installation, which is a hassle for customers who owned the early systems with only a 20 GB hard drive.
In addition to the Xbox 360, “GTA 5” was released for the Playstation 3 on Sept. 17 in the North American region. The sequel features a single-player campaign with three playable characters in addition to the “Grand Theft Auto Online” multiplayer mode.
