May 7, 2008 // 2:50 pm - 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.

I have installed the patch and although it has not locked up since the download, the stuttering gameplay is still evident in places.

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.
