Full Version: PS3 Multiplayer frustration !!

I've been playing GTA online on my 360 for a while now. I recently bought a PS3 which I love.
I'm gutted that GTA multiplayer on PS3 does NOT give me the option to only search for games with Auto Aim Disallow. Everybody seems to have auto aim allow. I personally hate this. To make matters worse - When I try to jump into another lobby I get a disconnect or a complete crash ! I admit that this would occasionally happen on my 360 but not nearly as frequent.
I know Rockstar and Microsoft did a deal together but this does feel a bit like a middle finger to PS3 & I'm starting to lose respect for my beloved Rockstar sad.gif

Just remember that PS online is free. You get what you pay for. I'm sure they'll make some improvements eventually.

Right listen;
I hate auto aim too and if I'm looking for a like minded free for all what I do is this -

First select the game you want ie. Multiplayer
Then select Games
Then select Custom Match
Next choose your game (for this we'll try Free Mode)
Next move down to Private Slots
Select 1 Private Slot then go back to Start Game


Now this gives you your personal preferances so do what you like.

Start the game and if there's not enough players there for your liking just bring the phone up again and -
select Multiplayer, then Games, then Quick Match and Free Mode again.

Now not always but most of the time you will be thrown into an existing game which matches your previous selections.

If not just select Multiplayer, Games, Quick Match then Free Mode (or whatever) again and follow this last step 'til you find the game that suits you.

It might seem long winded but after a couple of times it will become second nature, it usually works for me.
