GTA Online Patch is Live for PS3, Xbox 360 Coming Soon

Rockstar is aware of technical difficulties with initial release of Grand Theft Auto Online and will "work around the clock" to smooth things out.

Technical difficulties have prevented many Grand Theft Auto Online players from completing the first tutorial mission. Rockstar apologized in a press statement issued today and announced that a patch for the PS3 version is already live, and the Xbox 360 patch will be live "as soon as possible today."

Rockstar pointed to its support site where there is an article listing the most common technical issues. Subscribing to the article will keep you informed on any updates Rockstar posts. You can also report technical problems to Rockstar Support or on twitter.

Multiple issues have prevented a smooth experience with GTA Online. Rockstar stated a PlayStation Network server issue was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users, preventing many players from accessing GTA Online. The company said the problem has been resolved as of this morning. Players are still reporting problems with completing the first tutorial mission; Rockstar is working on "unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible." For those who have made it past the tutorial mission, instability across the GTA Online services is still causing problems.

In response, Rockstar disabled the option of purchasable GTA$ cash packs. This does not affect GTA$ earned by profitable gameplay activities.

Technical issues upon release of an online service are all too common, and hopefully players will be able to play the game without interruption soon. Check Rockstar's support page for details on problems. The company has asked for any non-technical-related feedback to be sent to GTAOnline@rockstargames.com.

I wonder if they'll get it patched on 360 in time for the "Free XBL Gold" weekend.

Hope its up soon, I want to play with my Escapist chums without the fear of losing my save, I did the 30 barrels of nuclear waste and finding the submarine scraps, I'll be damned if I lose my files (I have 2)

I'll be happy if I can come home tonight and finally play the multiplayer with my friends without having to make a temp character. I liked some of those characters I made. Also, this is relevant to the topic but:

I can't believe you got all of those, good for you though. You are a more patient Man/Woman/Sentient AI than I am. After finding about 4 of those barrels and 3 scraps I got bored with how slow the submersible moved and gave up, parking it off some random shore.
(Yes for the scraps I used the boat primarily and dived, still too boring for my tastes)

Those aren't nearly as bad as completing every UFO/Letter Scrap/Stunt Jump/Knife Flight/Bridge collectibles and losing your save. At least you can get those back within an hour, it would take me about five to get all mine back T-T

Getting the sub/waste together takes about 2 and a half hours since most of it is moving the slow ass sub...

Will try to do the letter scraps and UFO parts, tedious, but I have the game guide to help me out, nothing else to do in the game.

Except that Epsilion mission which is fucking annoying, 10 consecutive days in shitty robes...might as well look for some scraps.

Also, what is Knife Flight?

The slow moving submarine was hell and getting the scraps was a pain because:
1: The boat kept drifting off
2: Sharks had me paranoid as all hell
3: Swimming controls are obnoxious

Give the sub mission credit, I wasn't out where the sharks could get me (no, instead I had to be paranoid about "crushing depth" The though of a submarine getting crushed by pressure with me inside it...*shudder*)

Anyone else find it strange that the game doesn't need to be 100% completed to get 100% completion? The nuclear waste doesn't add to that and you only need to do 25/50 stunt jumps (along with other stuff that doesn't need to be done 100%)

Just an update:

The 360 patch was released sometime Saturday morning. Seemed pretty stable to me.

Unfortunately, GTAO is little more than dodging SMG-toting assholes in an open world while trying to start an instanced mission.

Instanced missions came in three flavors that I could see: Races with stock vehicles, Deathmatches with SMG-toting assholes, or a hybrid of the two (ie Capture the Flag type missions).

I figured this would be the case. Hence why I stick to my crew and co-op. Public games can go, well, do horrible things to themselves. At least until I get an apartment (again due to character wipe! Don't go to character select if you can help it!) and can spectate from my virtual living room.

OT, I can't wait for the patch, stability, and some money cards. yeah, I know it's prolly dumb to buy those, but meh.
