I had that happen to me once. I took the disc out, noticed there was a fingerprint on it, cleaned it with my shirt, popped it back in, haven't had a problem since.

It's a major problem. I'm pretty sure this is happening to all PS3 owners. I disconnected my PS3 from the internet and mine loaded up fine. Every time you load GTA4, it connects to the servers online and this is locking up your game. Just disconnect from the internet and you should be able to play the game offline.

Hey... I had the same problem today. Popped in the game for the first time ever and it just stays on the loading screen. After reading some forums a couple people mentioned it was hanging cause it was trying to get something from the Servers. Anyway, I disabled my network connection (which is annoying cause no MP) and it fixed it completely. I have not had any hangs since in 6+ hours of gaming

I can confirm this problem on my 20GB PS3 running firmware 2.30. It has happened multiple times, seemingly because of network issues.
