A bevy of new details emerge for Grand Theft Auto Online just one day before launch.
Can't wait! Have the day off tomorrow :DDDDDD
Same here, going to be on it all day. What system you playing on?
I'm really sorry to burst your bubble guys, but my guess is that the servers are going to struggle staying up tomorrow. I'm praying that it all goes smooth, but if you remember how Diablo III's servers were when that first went live, it wasn't pretty. Lets just hope that Rockstar is more prepared than Blizzard was.
like metalgod88 said, they will probably be problems with the servers in the first days, just like with the social club when i couldn't make a damn photo in the game cause the club feature didn't work for about two days.
Yep I took two days off for this. If the servers are down good thing I'll have BF4 beta as backup to play. Add me on Xbox live: Spinalc0rd.
Lol at getting 27 disagrees for saying you play it on the Xbox 360. What's wrong with you guys??
@inmyopinion Perhaps people dislike (and disagree) the x360 because it's from MS and MS is a s*itty company? I didn't disagree with Saints but I do recognize that MS as sure as hell is a s*itty company for gaming. The cancer of gaming if you will. There's plenty of data to back that up too. Now luckily since MS went full retard and showed people their true color with all their DRM BS even the people who have been oblivious to their BS so far got their eyes peeled for that one and the trainwreck of a console business (from a gamers and consumers pov ofc) is hitting a wall.
Wow! All Saints94 said was that he got the game for 360 and he got 50 disagrees. You people (the majority of the n4g community) are such scumbags. Grow up. @insomnium: you're the exact kind of scumbag i'm talking about. the hypocrisy is amazing. Sony has tons of documented misdealings. They are both corporations that only care about money. You remind me of a liberal that just automatically hates Fox News without realizing MSNBC is just as much trash. Sony fanboys literally ruin the gaming the community. I like PS3, but i always get multiplayer games for 360 because the ps3 community is loaded with people like you. you should be embarrassed.
@common sense Sony has been eating unjustified s*it ever since 2005 up until only a few years ago. No matter what documents you have before that everything is erased after the BS they went through. After MS goes through even some UNjustified BS we'll talk when they will be forgiven. It'll take years and it has to be UNJUSTIFIED too so all the heat regarding RROD and DRM stuff doesn't count. That is JUSTIFIED. There is a big difference.
^^ This is the lie Sony Fanboys love to spew.
Why would people disagree with you for playing it on 360? @Phinch either that or the PS3 is N4G preferred console.
lol that made me laugh as well, he must be lying of course!!!
That's the sad truth :/
@you guys As I said above: "Perhaps people dislike (and disagree) the x360 because it's from MS and MS is a s*itty company?"
The sad truth about this website is that the majority of people on here are pro sony/playstation. If you mention microsoft or xbox then you have to deal with automatic 10 disagrees right off the bat. Just using the word, "mirco" gets you 5 disagrees. The website has really become more and more of a sony fanboy playground and just getting all those disagrees for just saying your going to play a game on your 360 just proved it. Too many fanboys and not enough real gamers to have decent debates on this website.
^^ It's been this way for 6 or 7 years. It's pathetic. It's why i spend most of my game news search time on reddit. THe information is the same (though it's usually on reddit first), but the community isn't comprised of retards. Basically, these people are perpetual children who got a PS1 or 2 when mommy and daddy felt like buying it, and that's the console they swore allegiance to. I was able to own both a PS2 and an Xbox, so I realized both had their pros and cons...and I had no automatic, unwarranted hatred for one or the other. The only thing I hate about Sony is their fanbase. They are so unpleasant to be around that I refuse to buy 3rd party games on their console if I have any intention of playing online. They are truly despicable people.
@common sense If you hate the PS3 fanbase then where were you in 2006-2009 when all we ever heard was propaganda and BS against the PS3? You say it's been like this for 6-7 years? Really? On what planet? I could swear "teh PS3 haz no games" and "anything below 90 in MC is not AAA" among others was the norm 5-6 years ago. After that was "teh zales". You lie son.
Exchanging positive comments about sony and negative ones about ms is what keeps these people alive. They wake up everyday just to do it. Let's not destroy their little world, that's all they got.
any idea of what time its starts e.g 12 midnight gmt? ir midnight us time
This just got announced in case you missed it. They estimate a 7am ET launch: http://mmoattack.com/mmo-ne...
You have to have TWO people with you to start a mission....oh that's bullcrap. I want to play through it by myself and my own pace.
Well it is GTA Online......Isnt that meant to be Multiplayer?
Not really because it's free roam and has a passive mode. They said the whole point of passive mode so people can get on with missions and stuff. Hey I paid for this game whether I like online or not I still want the option to at least play the missions by my self.
Im with you. I dont see why extra missions should be denied to me because I want to play them by myself.
Maybe the missions require at least 3 people most of the time? Probably instead of wanting to use more power controlling two AI companions they just left them as player only companions to save a bit of power to use elsewear while running online?
Just thinking out loud.
at least gamebolt didn't break the info down into 3 or 4 pages.
Was reading more about it in my GameInformer today and I can't recall what exactly it was, but a few new things got me re-excited again. Online is going to be awesome.
So excited! Can't wait to play this :D
?!? I thought you were In it.
oh well i thought it wasnt going to happen october 1st lol
Easy on the expectations, ladies and gents. As excited as I am for this thing myself, it's probably going to be one buggy launch that's gonna take some time to smooth over.
It's one of the rare occasions where I can say it's times like this I'm glad I'm unemployed.. Playing GTA Online now till Christmas.. Woohoo....
You are sad.
I can't imagine why society is in such a sorry state.
You are bent
Even if I was unemployed I would have my family to take care of. The two older kids (8 and 10yo) are much easier but our new 1yo is a handfull. In addition I have not only one job but 2 jobs (one on weekends) so I have only 5-6 hours of gamingtime per week tops atm. A little vacation from life would be nice once in a while.
What platform are you playing it on?
Good on ya lad....
I'm almost in the same boat. I'm on workers compensation. I had a 250 lbs. box crush my hand causing a severe nerve disease called CRPS. Thank God I still have almost full dexterity albeit with extreme pain most of the time. As a gamer, I don't know what I'd do if I lost the use of my hand. Anyway, I can't work so I have plenty of time to play games. Cool part is using a controller is a great therapy exercise, doctor approved. Lol. So, early tomorrow morning I'm downloading the BF4 beta and playing that until GTA Online releases and then I'm spending the rest of the day in Los Santos. I just don't know what I want my character to look like. I usually spend forever creating my characters. I don't want to do that this time. I want to jump right in so I need to start thinking about it now.
You can play vids but not work ? Can u crush my hand ? Lol
Any idea of what time it'll launch at?
im hoping midnight tonight!!
it's actually around 7 am EST
7EST sounds like midnight GMT just in case anyone is interested
^^ This is completely wrong.
Rockstar themselves warned that the launch most likely won't be a smooth ride. It was the same when GTA IV first launched, I could barely ever even connect to the servers, they were getting slammed so hard.
If it's too difficult to get in a game, I guess I'll play the BF4 beta instead.
Sorry m8 was meant to be an agree
I love GTA 5 but it's just that I love BF4 abit more.. So I'll be playing the BF4 Beta
Im not touching bf4 until next gen on ps4. I dont want to play the watered down version of the game after what i've been seeing
I'll be playing BF4 on PC until GTA Online hits. BF4 will not be watered down for me. My rig can handle it. Although, I've been playing BF3 at 720p and low settings to check out what BF4 might look like on the new consoles. It still looks great. I can't wait. Six more weeks! I traded in my 360's already and was about to trade in my PS3 but GTA and Beyond: Two souls changed my mind.
I'm not expecting too much tommorow as I know how laggy it's going to be,but I shall be there once I finish work.
I'm going to be at disneyworld from October 2-7 :( wish I could stream to my vita from ps3 now! But disneyworld should be fun :) and when I get back I'm playing that all day.
Id rather play gta than go to disneyworld but hey thats just me
You think that's bad? I'm going to be out of town 5 days after PS4 comes out, and several days into the Xbox One launch. I'm looking forward to the trip, but the timing couldn't be worse.
I just want to know what time tomorrow it will launch....It's going to be amazing, and I'm running out of things to do in the singleplayer. Except for finding the nuclear waste(which is super boring in that slow ass submersible) I've done everything else.Can't wait to tear through Los Santos with all my friends!!!
Ahhhh... So the fourth "mystery" character in the character wheel was your multiplayer character? I thought there was an unlockable fourth way into the game, but MP guy is cool too.
First I'll try GTA online, if that fails I will try the BF4 beta, if both fail I can fall back on Kingdoms of Amalur, which goes up free with PS+ tomorrow. :)
PS+ is the best thing to happen to gaming since online play.
KOA is worth a playthrough
i love gta 5 rockstar but why microtransactions for GTA Online why :'(
The Microtransactions are optional and will most likely not break the game... All players will have to Level Up before buying really good weapons and stuff, The most likely thing that will happen is players that choose to pay will have the best properties, which I can't see effecting anyone.
well that's good then :) thanks to let me know
I'm gonna play the Bf4 beta until it's over and then hop over to GTA Online. By that time, any bugs or online issues should be resolved.
Forget GTA. Battlefield 4 beta is released tomorrow
Can't wait for me and my Crew to start wreaking havoc...
sweet for some reason i got 2 days off, so GTA Online all night!
everyone talking about the servers, well what the hell was the two weeks of waiting for online for? i think they will hold up if you ask me.
