Grand Theft Auto V PSN Download Error Fixed, Rockstar Still Working Out Social Club Issues


Grand Theft Auto V is now out in the wild and hopefully, most gamers have already sunk their teeth into it. Personally, while I’ve only completed 10% of the game so far, I’m loving every minute of it. Unfortunately, not everyone is having as positive an experience with the game as I am though.

Yesterday, PS3 owners were reporting issues with installing the digital version of the game. Apparently, some gamers were receiving an error code when trying to install. Sometimes it would pop up after having already waited several hours for the game to download.

Sony has now confirmed that this issue has been resolved:

“For those of you experiencing error code 80029564 when downloading or installing GTA V please accept our apologies,” a statement read. “This is been worked on as a high priority and we hope to have it resolved this afternoon. “Please delete any GTA content you have already downloaded and then re-download after 4pm today. This should resolve the 80029564 error. I will let you know if there are any changes to this progress and keep you all informed.”

Unfortunately, this isn’t the only bug plaguing the game. Many people, including myself, are experiencing problems when trying to use the iFruit Companion App, which links to the Rockstar Games Social Club. Luckily, Rockstar is aware of these issues and is actively working on a fix.

In other GTA V news, for those hoping to get a peak at the voice actors behind the game’s three main characters, a photo has been released showing off Steven Ogg (Trevor), Shawn Fonteno (Franklin), and Ned Luke (Michael). You can check that out below.
