Rockstar switches off microtransactions till "things are running smoothly"

We now enter the third day of GTA Online, with little apparent let-up on the technical difficulties front. Rockstar has disabled the game's microtransaction system while it tinkers around with the netcode - if you want cash, you'll need to crank it out the old-fashioned, in-game way for the moment. Assuming you can get the game running at all.... read more

I just battled through.

Look at me now, $30,000 in the bank and the lofty heights of rank 8.

It is the same with all big multiplayer releases now, I am not too bothered they will sort it out eventually. My main concern is this weekend will be an absolute nightmare! Free xbox live weekend we will have every 12 year old and their dog online making it nigh on impossible to get on!

Good job I have work and Rugby to keep me busy!

Seem's to be OK at the moment - I expect it to go belly up as soon as our friends across the pond wake up though :|

Finally managed to get past the race but when I had to do some mission a little bit after to improve my shooting I got another loading screen glitch. Now that Character is corrupted or whatever.

The opening of the online game is appalling, they said that the 2 weeks were for us to learn how to play the game and complete the single player, so why are we forced to watch some dull cutscenes (with yet more unlikeable generic black characters!) and do some shitty tutorials for things that are pretty much self explanatary anyway (and it was a foolish idea to make us have to do it with online randoms)

I managed to get on for a bit, but when I turned it off and then turned it back on it deleted all of my progress.This has happened 3 times now so I won't be playing till they sort their shit out.

The best bug I experienced was being dropped into a server, quite literally from around 20,000ft and watching helplessly as my character splatted into the tarmac. It took me around 6 attempts to get past that initial race though, now the most annoying thing is not being matched with friends or crew members and not being able to join each other in missions or servers.

Lol at all the complainers acting like it's so simple to get this working. No amount of planning over an infinite amount of time can possibly stop any and all problems that are bound to occur. "But I paiys 6$0 4 diz game and it brokz". No, idiot, it's having server issues. Get over it. 3 days is a lot? Shows that some people truly have no lives. First off, you can't compare full blown MMOs like Sims and Diablo to GTA V online. They were taken by surprise by the amount of sales they had and would never be able to prepare for such a flood of people on their servers!

One thing I will say is that there's no way that's true, the amount of coverage this had before it release, not to mention the record breaking preorders mean that they certainly knew the game was going to be popular

I think most people are accepting of a few glitches, but these problems are a tad more than that. They are essentially game breaking bugs. It's not unreasonable to expect that if you have paid for something that you get what you pay for.

Bearing in mind the fever attached to GTA I highly doubt that it's sales were a surprise to anyone in all honesty.

While I partially agree with the sentiment that people should relax more and it's a large game and whatnot I would like to point out that with an infinite amount of time they would be able to sort out all the problems. What with the time being infinite and all.

The bugs are fine its the sheer lunacy of putting in a multiplayer race as an tutorial that MUST be played. Perticually since they knew there was going to be issues at launch
