There have been reports across the internet that the latest installment to the Grand Theft Auto series is crashing older Xbox 360 systems which were produced between 2006 and 2008. Xbox Live support, Rockstar support, and several forums across the internet have been bombarded by user complaints and issues since the game’s release. Several recommended solutions, such as reinstalling the game or upgrading open hard drive space have not been working. Rockstar and Xbox are currently investigating possible solutions to this situation.
The most successful solution that currently exists (per Xbox Live Support):
1. Delete all Grand Theft Auto V game data.
2. Clear system cache three times.
3. Delete marketplace data from storage system items.
4. Unplug console for three minutes.
5. Install disc 1.
6. Power off, do not insert disc 2.
8. Install disc 2.
This is one of the second largest issues with the game since release; the first issue being with installing the play disc hindering graphics negatively, as did Skyrim when it was released.
