Rockstar Releases GTA 5 Online Update For PS3

/ Oct 5th, 2013 No Comments

GTA 5 Release

Plagued by issues since it’s release on Tuesday, GTA 5 Online will automatically update on the PS3 when gamers load the game. GTA 5’s developer, Rockstar, is hoping to fix some of the slew of glitches and error messages gamers have experienced when playing GTA 5 online or attempting to connect to it.

Unfortunately, a patch or update will not fix the lack of necessary servers for the online component of the latest GTA title. Rockstar previously stated that they had not anticipated the popularity of GTA 5 and had warned gamers to expect issues with the online multiplayer launch. While they are working to purchase and program more servers to enable more gamers to access GTA 5 Online, many gamers still remain unable to connect to or access online content for the game.[adsense250itp]

Other issues that have plagued the launch of GTA 5 Online include;

  • Offline and online content mixing on jobs list
  • Matchmaking screen time-outs
  • Cloud server related error messages
  • Job start/load errors
  • Tutorial freezes or glitches requiring multiple re-starts or deletion of online character
  • Single player save data corrupted when gamers access online content
  • Waypoints and markers disapear from map

GTA 5 Online experiencing online issues


An update for the Xbox 360 is expected later in the day on Oct. 4. Purchases of GTA $ Cash Packs have been temporarily suspended for the time being due to all the problems with online gameplay.

Quick Take

Though Rockstar says that many issues were caused by their failure to anticipate the popularity of their latest title, it is a flawed argument and a terrible excuse. Up to 16 players can play simultaneously in the online version of the game. Why would the game be designed that way (instead of co-op or 3-4 players) if the developer didn’t expect a large online following? Online games are going to require patches and be rough to play for the first few days or weeks, after launch. Many recent releases have proven that and it’s to be expected. Some bugs can only be worked out when the game is playing the way it’s supposed to be played. Doesn’t matter how many betas a developer runs, games are bigger, more comprehensive, more immersive, loaded with data and nothing is going to be perfect when it first releases. Developers should learn not to make excuses that gamers are smart enough to see through and gamers should learn to be patient and possibly wait a few weeks before trying to access online content for the newest, hottest game.
