It's been freezing since the first mission, now I'm about 4 in and it won't stop freezing. I'm in the middle of the mission with the actress and her niece (I think) after we walk out of the front of hotel (from basement room) on way to prop house. If I have the partner drive it freezes black screen, if I drive to the prop house it always freezes within a block. I've also tried driving to the hidden cars, got one with no issues, drove to the next and it froze when I was right outside of it.
Xbox mfg date of mid '08, 20 gb hdd. I started playing straight from disc and it froze, installed on hdd and it still freezes. Have an open ticket with R* and nothing's came of it.
I'm so fed up I'm considering trading in the game before the rest of the country figures out about this and the price drops considerably. Granted it's not happening to everyone (jealous) but it's real annoying dropping $60 on a game that's making my 360 freeze... what's next RRoD from this game??
<update: my dashboard is just the basic one, and I went thru that process that R* recommends on the link from Mikey, no luck.>
