Rockstar release 18MB GTA IV PS3 patch as planned
Rockstar Games just confirmed that they have released a patch for the PlayStation 3 version of GTA IV which was causing issues with online play.
Specifically, it prevents Gamespy's servers from being overloaded, and therefore reduces the impact on those servers that were causing the game to stutter and lock up.

My neighbor installed the patch earlier today and has had nothing but problems since. Before the patch, everything was fine, no lockups at all. After installing the patch, it locked up twice in the same spot on a mission... after managing to complete the mission, it locked up again. I think Rockstar may have missed something.
I've installed the patch and so far I've got no problem with the game. Since I'm still in the early stage of the game I'm not sure whether I will face any problem in future missions.
