They should've released a beta and avoid the negative reviews and bad reactions from millions of gamers around the globe.

They have a internal beta running for a long time

tigertron950d ago

but you can't properly stress test the servers with an internal beta.

Hopefully Rockstar spent the last couple of weeks buying more servers...

Anyway, I hope everything is ok, though like Rockstar I do expect there to be issues with everyone trying to connect at once.

Uhh... Isn't that known as alpha testing? Beta is a public testing phase.

@Ginn

No.

Alpha and beta are just that, stages of testing, nothing more. It has nothing to do with it being public or not, you could have both public alpha and beta testing if you wanted to, as well as closed alpha and beta testing.

Well at least they are being honest about it, unlike some other game developers that I wont mention! EAt that other developers!!

aiBreeze950d ago

I just hope it's them being honest and not just coming clean from testing the capabilities of their servers and realizing that they clearly aren't up to the standard required to handle the amount of people about to play.

EA (im guessing thats what you mean since you wrote EAt)
does atleast have public beta's for Battlefield and so on......

creeping judas950d ago

Yes they do, but every EA game's online crashes and doesnt work properly the 1st week it's out.

Are_The_MaDNess950d ago

never happend to me.
not with BFBC2, BF3, ME1,2,3, Simcity or any other game i can recall that had a huge problem

George Sears950d ago

Main issue I could think off right at bat for a massive franchise like this would probably be server overload.

Are_The_MaDNess950d ago

server load and framerate with crazy stuff happening......
i can already see my game have frame drops in the single player (around 5FPS but still noticeable). how well will it be in the online part when 5-10 people have RPG's and blow shit up?

drsfinest72950d ago

Rockstar is just so amazing. I'm sure they would find a quick fix and it won't be like FF XIV launch or SIM city.. etc
