GTA III - Hissing?

I just downloaded GTA III through the App Store. Love the game but unfortunately, there is a high pitched hissing through the left channel whenever driving or walking around. It doesn't do it through the cutscenes or at the menu.

I tried my speakers, my headphones, and unplugging and replugging in the speaker set, but it's still there. Anyone else have this problem?

I also have this problem. It's very annoying and I hope they'll fix it soon.
I haven't found a solution for it yet.

I wonder if there is a version difference between the App store version and the retail box version. When playing GTA III on my rig, there was no hissing at all.

I'm at least glad I'm not the only one so it must be with the game itself. I've resigned myself to playing with my headphones and leaving the left side off my ear.

I also put in a ticket with Rockstar but haven't heard back yet.

I have this problem too, and I've also notified Rockstar. I tried running the game as a Guest user...didn't help. I've experienced this issue on both a Mac Pro running 10.6.8, and an iMac running 10.7.1, so it doesn't appear to be related to the OS or hardware.

Hopefully we'll see a fix soon...

I have the same issue with GTA Vice City. In this case the noise isn't high pitched, but low pitched. I can hear that in my left ear.

Uncomfortable

I heard it during a cut scene. Very annoying. My character in the game just started shooting at everyone.
