GTA V Online Patch Guide: Avoid console freeze with title updates Rockstar have been busy fixing issues with online servers since the online portion of Grand Theft Auto V went live. The publisher giant have released a 39mb title update for PS3 that has actually caused yet more problems for some gamers.
Rockstar have acknowledged the latest title update has caused issues such as character deletion and console freezing.

- For PlayStation 3 users, a PlayStation Network server issue was detected that was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users. This was preventing most players from accessing GTA Online altogether and as of this morning, that problem was resolved.

- There is an issue that is preventing some players from getting through the first tutorial mission across both platforms. Many players have been able to get through this with repeated retries, and we are working on unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible.

- This morning, we experienced some instability across the GTA Online services which is affecting even people who have progressed beyond the tutorial mission. We are identifying these issues now and are working to restore stability for users as soon as possible.

- For the time being and until we have been able to get everybody access to GTA Online and things are running smoothly, we have disabled the option of purchasable GTA$ cash packs. Players can however keep on earning GTA$ by pulling off Jobs and other profitable gameplay activities rather than purchasing cash packs.

Here's Xpgamesaves guide on avoiding console freeze or character deletion.

Non digital game owners solution:

Goto your PS3 Menu
Goto Game data tools
Now simply delete the 39 mb file version numbers will be either 1.01 or 1.02

Digital game owners solution:

Start a single player game
Goto your character wheel
Press down to start online game
Accept title update.

If you are worried about data corruption we advise waiting for Rockstar to resolve the issues before going online.
