Have you been experiencing crashes with the Xbox 360 version of "Grand Theft Auto 5"? Do you have an older Xbox 360 console? If so, Microsoft has offered a fix, according to GameZone.
Here's what happened to one gamer when playing "GTA 5" on their Xbox 360.
"Once the driving portion of Franklin's 1st mission start, the game randomly freezes forcing me to reboot the Xbox. There is no precursor for the game locking up; it appears to happen completely randomly and at different times during the mission. It has locked up on me early in the mission when Franklin's buddy calls up on the cell phone just after the driving starts. It has locked up during the second portion of the driving mission when the cops are chasing."
