[QUOTE="croman, post: 0]What if we dont have any problems playing GTA IV? I have experienced zero freezing and no problems with any multiplayer games and I have been playing the game everyday since launch.
Is this install mandatory? I do not want to be forced to download this patch and then have the game screw up on me when there is nothing wrong with mine to begin with.[/quote]
It's mandatory. When you load the game, it'll say you have to download the update first. There was really nothing wrong with my game before the patch. Froze twice, but signing out of PSN fixed that. Now with the patch, everything is as it should be.
