Grand Theft Auto V 1.04 Patch Released for PlayStation 3; DLC / Update Info, ‘Heists’ Info


The latest GTA V patch gamers have been waiting for has now arrived on the PlayStation Network for Sony PS3 players.  GTA V version 1.04 patch is 39 MB and is said to update a number of features in GTA Online including grouping exploiters and cheaters together away from other players using the Good Sport / Bad Sport system as well as detecting foul play among people exploiting the game for unfair advantages (including money-wise).

Other tweaks have been made to the game which will likely take the community some time to discover, such as balancing tweaks on how much money players win / lose in certain jobs.

The patch also makes it possible for Rockstar Games to deliver the first $250k of their $500,000 Stimulus Package which will have its direct deposit dates announced soon, and although its uncertain yet whether or not it will add heists to the game many are hoping it will.

Four free updates are planned for GTA Online including the Beach Bum Pack which adds a couple of vehicles, two new weapons, and clothes, the Content Creator Mode which allows players to make their own Deathmatches, Races, and more, a Capture the Flag Mode, and of course the long-awaited Online Heists Missions which are set to be the icing on the cake for GTA Online and very well may determine the game’s longevity over time.

**UPDATE: The patch is now live on Xbox 360’s XBL as well and will also limit the amount of money players lose for dying when not in missions to just $500.

    Yea ever since this update i cant do most missions and people cannot join my missions. Also sometimes people cant even join the same lobby i am in. Oh and don’t forget about the horrible lag if friends end up in your lobby. My GTA V was running perfect before this update. I’m not trying to talk trash or anything because II love your games but please fix this asap.

    Also heists would be nice. I have the most expensive apartment and have bought and sold the best cars, so i feel i have nothing left to build up money for. I feel I’m at a dead end. NEED NEW GOALS!

    • Hey IffyDark. Are you playing on a Wired Ethernet connection? I’m not experiencing these problems and I’ve been playing 3-6 hours a day without issues. As for the goals, have you really earned all the trophies already? There’s plenty to keep you busy until Heists comes out. There’s also a check mark next to every mission you’ve completed. As you rise in rank you’ll see more missions on the map.

      Try going around until you get them all checked off, taking friends into the Survival matches until you get all of them passed (make it to Wave 10 and beat it), then there’s always competing with friends’ high scores on Races, Parachute Jumps, and if you turn “Matchmaking” to “Closed” when creating a lobby you will remove the timer on the invites allowing you to get all of your friends together for a Deathmatch, which is always hilarious and fun.

      As for any glitches / issues, we are not Rockstar Games – we are RealGamerNewz. Please direct all technical support questions to Rockstar Games. But thanks for checking out the site man!
