GTA V: Rockstar Looking Into Disappearing Car Issues, Older Model 360s Crashing
Written Monday, September 23, 2013 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Rockstar is looking into a number of issues with Grand Theft Auto V, including missing vehicle upgrades and cars, as well reports of the game crashing older Xbox 360 models.
Let’s start with that car upgrade problem, as reported by VideoGamer. According to some users, cars and upgrades are going missing following the completion of missions, despite the fact that the vehicles are parked and saved in garages.
The studio is currently looking into the problem, but the support site advises that “In the meantime, please try to avoid parking a car in a garage, driving one already in a garage, or getting in a default vehicle, when playing as a character other than the one with your upgrades.”
Now, the old Xbox 360 issue. According to a series of forum posts and support requests spotted by Kotaku, Xbox 360 consoles made or refurbished between 2006 and 2008 suffer from freezes and crashes while playing GTA V.
Rockstar is aware of the issue and is looking into it. While that happens, Xbox Support recommends the following process for all those affected.
- Delete all GTA 5 game data.
- Clear system cache three times.
- Delete marketplace data from storage system items.
- Unplug console for three minutes.
- Install disc 1.
- Power off, do not insert disc 2.
- Install disc 2.
Hope that helps.
