Still doesn't work beyond Lamar dropping you off. The second you try to do that first race, issues arise once again.

I sat there for two hours lol.

meanwhile I get notifications about one of my friends posting world record times for missions and races

:/ I shoulda expected it but I REALLY WANNA PLAY

UrbanBullet1004d ago

When I hit Start and highlight the online tab it tells me "Your profile does not have the correct permissions the access Xbox live functionality"? can someone help me out here.

How did Rockstar not anticipate this....they should of prepared better

LOGICWINS1004d ago

They DID anticipate this. They said this was going to happen. This is what they wanted. They need to see how everything runs when the servers are packed. They expected the game to crash for most people. Now they will make the make the proper adjustments.

Wouldn't of been better to have a beta then so when it finally comes out all of us don't have to suffer after we've been waiting for it for ages

@ -Foxtrot

Unfortunately, no beta test can emulate the sheer volume of server bandwidth that they are facing. They don't want to "overbuy" servers just to make sure this is smooth on Day 1, they want to make it as efficient as possible. Not necessarily to avoid buying servers/bandwidth, but in order to ensure stability no matter what kind of hardware is behind it.

There's only so much they can do. If we had to pay a monthly fee for GTA Online, then I could understand the frustration - but, this was 100% expected and is being dealt with properly.

Suffer after waiting for ages? You make it sound like you've been waiting for a new kidney for the past year and a half. Consider yourself lucky that GTA Online will be offered for FREE. Considering its an ever expanding world starting with 700+ missions (with more to come), Rockstar could have EASILY charged $10 so people could access the online aspect.

We didnt even know GTA Online existed a month and a half ago. I dont understand how uve been "waiting for ages".

You people are a bunch of impatient whiners. Is your life THAT devoid of any other activity that you NEED to play the most ambitious online suite ever attempted on consoles just a few hours after it launches? After four years, the community on N4G continues to amaze me.

JackStraw1004d ago

no beta test can emulate that? uh, that's the point of a beta. one of the biggest reasons for having betas for online games these days it to test servers. no excuses.

HammadTheBeast1004d ago

GTA O is part of the $60 purchase. I highly doubt the 700 missions are all different and varied, there's probably around 100 different ones.

They knew they would get tons of people playing, some preparation would've been nice.

Wow. It was a simple comment, bro. No need to be an a**hole about it...

@-Foxtrot

This could be considered the beta.

"FORESEEN AND DONE NOTHING!"

They knew this was going to happen and warned us like 4-5 days ago. Nobody listened though, I guess people don't read as much as they used to.

SeanScythe1004d ago

They were to busy swimming in the Billion+ $$ they made on the game. Then someone from the online team walked in and said "Hey the online for GTA5 is going live in 5 mins. Hope you guys remembered to buy the extra servers we needed over the last two weeks."
