Don’t blame me for flame-bait, that is literally exactly what the title of Rockstar Games’ Press Release listing was on the highly respected Press channel GP. Below are some more details they also released, some of which are re-iterated for posterity. Take a look at our GTA V section for more info and gameplay videos about the game. For more info on the situation going on right now, watch our RGN News Show #60 talking about it and the upcoming Stress Test from Rockstar Games.
Excerpt from todays’ Official Presss Release by Rockstar Games:
- “For PlayStation 3 users, a PlayStation Network server issue was detected that was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users. This was preventing most players from accessing GTA Online altogether and as of this morning, that problem was resolved.
- There is an issue that is preventing some players from getting through the first tutorial mission across both platforms. Many players have been able to get through this with repeated retries, and we are working on unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible.
- This morning, we experienced some instability across the GTA Online services which is affecting even people who have progressed beyond the tutorial mission. We are identifying these issues now and are working to restore stability for users as soon as possible.
- For the time being and until we have been able to get everybody access to GTA Online and things are running smoothly, we have disabled the option of purchasable GTA$ cash packs. Players can however keep on earning GTA$ by pulling off Jobs and other profitable gameplay activities rather than purchasing cash packs.”
