Re: GTA 5

I've had it on pre-order since the 8th of November, getting rather annoyed by it being pushed back so many times, better be worth it, the PS3 version is fun and I've had that for almost a year and a half, but, it's reached an impasse where it's lacking features that can't be added due to hardware and software limitations, that and rockstar's servers seem to suck making online play a PITA when it keeps causing disconnections, splitting up of players and just general annoyances, makes me wonder why I still play it... Huh
14th of April? We'll see... Grin

Re: GTA 5

everyone i game with has it on pre-order too, and ive noticed in the past week its been number 1 in the top 10 best sellers on steam. I think when it goes live there will be loads of connection issues because of the amount of people who are going to flood the multiplay side of the game.

Re: GTA 5

2 years late and over priced so nope, I will wait for it as a sale.  They are trying to get more pre orders by increasing the ingame credit bonus for preordering, it was 1million and last time I checked it was 1.2 million, that says to me not enough have pre ordered to keep their bean counters happy

PRE-PURCHASE BY APRIL 14 AND GET $1,200,000 IN-GAME PLUS A BONUS $150,000
That must have been added in last 2 weeks, as that was the last time I started Steam.

I've ordered a physical copy, so won't have to download everything, just updates and alterations to the game, but yeah, there's going to be one hell of a bottleneck when it comes to GTA Online, so, I'll probably hold off playing that 'til it's calmed down and some of the people I know on PS3 have it too, that and I'm not entirely sure my system will play it, but we shall see...

Re: GTA 5

That's where I ordered mine (though the price seemed to go up and down between £30 and £34.85 since I pre-ordered), they claim it'll be delivered on the release date too, but, we'll see... Grin
I have seen it for as much as £50 in some places, which is a ripoff for a game that's technically been out since October 2013 (in a different form that is), which has put off people from buying it before or on release day...

Got the discs (7 DVDs in the pack!! No such thing as BluRay eh?) today, started installing them at about 8:30pmBST, it's now 12:44amBST, still installing stuff (the current section is downloading a 60GB update or map or something), it's like installing Windows95 from 3.5" floppies all over again............
