I am currently using one, without the HDMI port built in, 20gb HDD and only about 1 gb left after installing disc 1 and it all works great. I only had a few pop ins during the intro scene where it pans through the city and that was the only time.
Do you ever experience longer than usual load times, the sound of your console trying hard to read the disc or disc tray related problems like it telling you the tray is empty or the disc is dirty error while playing other games?
Lens problems are pretty much more common the longer you have a console...especially if it's tucked inside of an entertainment center. You can get some dust in there and that would make it hard for the lens to read the disc...especially when the disc is multi-layered
and your console is trying to read content, mainly cutscenes that are stored a bit deeper. You can also scratch your lens when using compressed air to clear up the dust too.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
