Is this included in the pre-load?

GameSpawn1404d ago

Usually. It is a separate file download though, but starts downloading once the initial portion need to start the game installs.

Is it just me or are Day 1 patches becoming more and more common?

Are devs and publishers just pushing deadlines so hard they need to release a broken game to the presses to only quickly patch their screw ups on launch day?

Or is this a ploy so that those who get their hands on the game early and break street dates have to deal with a broken game until the real launch date?

Thanks, i thought so.

I think they do that so they can start shipping the game while still working on the game...

Eh... I have mixed feelings about that... For one side, you get to play them earlier, because the can keep "polishing" the final parts while preparing retail boxes, etc... But it can be exploited like AC:U... They send the game out and then patch it... It's Rockstar, though...

I really don't see anything wrong with a Day One patch if it is being used for tweaks and optimization (as this one apparently is) because developers should never stop improving on the performance of their games even after they've 'gone gold'.

If the patch is being used to fix game-breaking glitches, then that is a problem. It's good that it's being fixed, but bad that the game was rushed out the door in order to meet a deadline (I'm looking at you Ubisoft).

Its like how Xbox does day 1 1 patch!

Pogmathoin1404d ago

1.14gig used to be enormous.... now you are happy with that considering other patch sizes recently....

Yeah, I already downloaded it, just waiting for midnight.

Edit: Pacific time people get lucky!!!

Crushed servers are imminent!

So stoked for this game. If your in Canada EB Games is having early releases at 9 tonight. Check the website to see if one near you is doing it. GameStop owns EB so GameStop may be doing it too. Not entirely sure. Just a heads up.

SuperBlur1404d ago

Is Gamestop having any deal for trade-ins on the old gen GTA V?

Would hate to have to spend another $60 if I can trade in my 360 version and only pay $10-30.

FryFat1404d ago

Don't see anything. Only $11.00 trade in credit. I traded my copy in last year for a PS4 controller through amazon, sweet deal then.

Mega241404d ago

There aren't any offers as of this moment, but like FryFat said, you can get close to $12 for the trade in.

Psychotica1404d ago

Target stores are offering $30 trade in for old gen towards the new gen. There was an article on N4G about it earlier today..
