Grand Theft Auto V’s PlayStation 3 release has been met with some crippling installation issues this week, with problems continuing to pop up despite Sony’s assertion yesterday that they had been fixed.

The problem stems from the digital version of Rockstar’s crime opus via PlayStation Network, with users reporting an error code ‘80029564.’

In response, Sony has offered the following advice on its message board: “The error 80029564 which appears while attempting to download a game patch is an indicator that there has been a connection issue to the server during the download attempt.”

“Some Virgin Media consumers were experiencing this issue, however this was subsequently identified and fixed by Virgin prior to Christmas '12. So if the issue is still persisting there are other reasons this may be the case.
