According to this post on the forum, 2K’s tech support has said that Sony is looking into making a new firmware for the 60GB PS3 in order to fix GTA IV’s freezing problems.

The email to the frustrated user apparently said:

There is an issue with the launch edition of the PS3 and this game, the game was checked over and passed as 100% compatible with the current version of the PS3, of course the earlier version has custom chips which mean that it is a very different animal from the current PS3 on sale.

Sony are aware of this difference and are looking into producing a new firmware just for the earlier version of the PS3.

Kind Regards
