No, there is not cross-platform play in GTA 5.

It is possible for PS3/4 games to be Cross-Play but it is not the default. You will have to check whether each specific game supports PS3/4 cross play as it's up to the developer to implement.

To turn off voice chat on PS3: Hold down Select then scroll down the Interaction Menu to Chat. Switch it over to whichever setting you prefer. No-one, Crew, Friends, Crew + Friends, or Everyone Note: Changing this setting can effect your ability to succeed in a Rally Race. Also, it appears that you cannot change this setting once you've joined a lobby. So ...

Mystery solved... my friend said that he's simply never sold any inventory items, so the extra slots are all from mission rewards! He has the GOTY edition and has never gotten any game updates because there's no internet connection at his home, so this may not work for those of us who get regular game updates. He also said that a drawback is that you ...

That happens if the character you pick is a knave or assassin. From the wiki: Both the Knave and Assassin have a black cloud following them. This has no function and is only for visual effect.

The PS3 save files are stored in a proprietary format which is not designed to be handled or integrated by any other software than Sony's own software. This makes all of the PS3 save files unusable by any other system. Any software can potentially be reverse engineered to fit another system than what was originally intended, but this would also mean ...

Yes, it is safe to delete the one that "installs" the game, it says "uninstall" because the installer itself is an application that runs and installs the game in your PS3.

The PS3 only outputs through HDMI or regular AV jacks. Right now, yours is set to use HDMI. When you want to use AV jacks, ensure the PS3 is off. Then, turn it on using the button on the PS3 instead of the controller. Don't let go of the button until it beeps a second time. It will show a menu asking if you want to use HDMI or not.

Nope, you can't. Every single PS3 hard drive is encrypted to it's own, personal, PS3. No two keys are the same, and that's not even taking into account the file structure required. You won't even be able to read the hard drive, let alone throw information onto it. Incidentally, what you're trying to do here is piracy. But even with legitimate data, what ...

Same as for any case of usage, i.e. 7200 is faster than 5400. However there are 2 additional things to consider, 7200 generates more heat and noise. While second can cause discomfort, first shortens life of the HDD. Considering that PS3 is not really depends on drive speed in general, 5400 is generally preffered. Considering HDD buffer size it's again, same ...

Like many MMOs, physical copies of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn include a product key which must be registered to your Square Enix account. If a PS3 copy of the game has been previously opened, it's extremely likely that the product key has already been registered, rendering it useless to everyone but the original owner. If you want to buy a copy of ...

You will need an account on the PS3 that owns those DLCs in order to be able to play those games/use those DLCs (or download them in the first place if you don't have them locally). You could contact Sony and ask if they can move over the purchases, but I'm not sure if they do this (they definitely don't change PSN IDs). The easiest way around this is to ...

Seems to be recent problem with RDR and all players are affected. As already suggested in the referenced topic submit a support ticket. More tickets, more likely the fix will be sooner.

Does your campus require you to access a login page when you connect? If so, you'll have to use the PS3's browser to access it. After you do, you shouldn't have to log in every time you turn on the console.

You're limited by system activations, not per-game activations. Once your account has been activated on two different consoles, you can only play games owned by this account on these consoles, you can't "mix and match" games between an infinite number of consoles.

No. The PC version is the only one available in Europe that's not censored in all of it, but that would require buying it again as well as having a PC capable of running it. On PC, censorship only applies in Germany and Austria in Europe -- and then, apparently only in relation to the removal of Nazi-themed symbolism. The US and EU PSN stores are entirely ...

This is due to a phenomenon called overscan, which is a holdover from the CRT days of displays. It used to be that TVs and the signals sent to them were analog. Thus, there's was bit of a fudge factor in how the signal is sent to the display, and how the display renders it. In the CRT era, we'd send an overly large signal to the display with the ...

This could as already stated be a sign of a hardware issue in the PS3 itself, However don't overlook the possibility of it being a television problem. Try hooking up to another tv, and if that does not fix the problem there may even be something up with the AV or HDMI cable you are using. if swapping out these things does not help and you are still under a ...

I have contacted Rockstar support and they have confirmed that save files are interchangeable between the standard edition and the Game of the year edition. This means that any save created with the vanilla edition will load up no problem when you get the GOTY edition.

I'll repeat myself again(as in the comments). I don't know about GTA5, but in general SSD would be faster than a normal HDD + BluRay. PS3 uses SATA1, which provides a bandwidth of maximum 150 MB/s(SATA2 allows 300 MB/s and more modern SATA3 provides 600 MB/s bantwidth). HDD used in PS3 slim reads at 65 MB/s and BluRay at around 9 MB/s(all PS3 models use 2x ...

I fear you lack a little knowledge on what you are intending on buying. Unlike PC versions of games ps3 and xbox 360 have one graphic setting (compared PC versions about a medium to high setting). To answer your other question 500gb is the highest ps3 size you can buy in stock form. However you can upgrade the hard drive to have more space... Sub-Note: ...

IF you mean an external drive or somehow hooking your PS3 to your PC no, you can't install games on an external drive like that. You can however use a laptop 2.5" HDD and replace the physical HDD inside the PS3 (you can backup and restore your current saves to keep all your stuff too). See this question for a bit more info on the HDD type you need Internal ...

Your PSN purchases are tied to your PSN account. By simply logging into your old PSN account on your new console, you should be able to access your past purchases.

PS+ subscription comes "on top" of the usual (free) PSN subscription, you're not restricted to playing with members of either group of users by being a member of one group or the other (PS4 games can only be played online if you're a PS+ subscriber, though). The games offered through PS+ "Instant Game Collection" are exactly the same as their "full priced" ...

BO 2 has an optional install for textures, which takes 1.8GB. The game requires ~10MB for save files. DLC is extra. MW3 has a 50MB requirement. No additional install. DLC is extra.

None of the big DLC packs, free or paid, for Payday 2 are available on console (360 or PS3) - they're currently Steam exclusive. The word seems to be that consoles will get this content eventually, but I'm having a hard time finding anything solid from the developers about when (if ever) it will be released.

The one that installs the game exists only to copy the game to your PSP or PS Vita. It can be safely deleted once you have done so or if you do not plan to do so. It's just a weird side effect of how they handle installers, since the "real" PS1 game on PS3 doesn't let you copy it direct to PSP.

Yes they will sync, though maybe you have to start the game, I don't remember.
