Hi guys,

 

I can confirm that GTA V will be available to pre-download on Monday the 16th September.

 

I will try to find out why the date has changed but its confirmed that the pre-download will be on the 16th.

Just spoke to a guy from the PSN who says they have no concrete information on when the game will be availabe for download, he went on to say that the date shown for download is provided by Rockstar and if it's to be made available for download today it could be anytime up to 9pm uk time.  

 

Rockstar however have closed their call center and are not taking calls in the UK.  

 

The guy I spoke to says they're waiting for more information but cannot guarantee any date shown on the store as it's solely Rockstar's place to adhere to whatever date's or time's shown and Playstation have no infuence on such things given that developers can change things at their own discretion.

 

 

Anyone looking to contact the PSN for information can find the number here:  http://faq.en.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/842/c/502/session/L3RpbWUvMTM3OTA3NjE0MC9zaWQv...

Snarling666. If you've watched Gamescom or E3 you'll have heard Sony talk about Indie publishers. When talking about this subject one thing has been repeated over and over. Publishers on the PSN have full control over pricing, release dates and pretty much everything else tied to their game. If a publisher places a game on there they can change everything at any time they want. Sony simply provide a platform for the developer to publish their title.

@thread starter this here is discussion forums nobody really cares about them.

if you want attention and sony to fix the pre-download you should start your own thread in support areas , post in the one i started:
http://community.eu.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-Technical-Help/So-when-can-we-pre-download-GTA-...

or even better:

use any way to contact sony, eurogamer, press, sony management and press division, that you can find ;) hope we can play on tuesday...

The other thread is in the support section, so it's not so far fetched that it will be checked more frequently than this one. It's not a competition, it's about writing in the thread that has more possibilities of getting sony's attention.

the only positive thing left if preload is cancelled is that the in game load time may be reduced when its all on hard drive and not reading from disc

Snarling666: another good point is two copies for the price of one if you own more than one console, and since my red dead redemption and GTAIV disk both failed whilst inside the machine you don't need to worry about breakages.

However I still feel the digital copy should be far cheaper than a disk.

Just hoping Rockstar pull their collective finger out and get something sorted.

Relax and take a breath, they advertised the EXPECTED (thats the operative word) date of the preload to be the 13th, if it changes then so be it, but as long as there is a preload you have what you want.

Any legit disappointment would be if Rockstar changed it last minute and Sony didn't bother to notify us about it, I also cancelled a physical pre order purely for the pre load so i can play it when the clock strikes 12 on monday night but as I write this we have only reached half of the day so it would be best if you dropped the pitchfork for now.

I can't belive that sony is so disorganized, if you put a date you must respect it.

 

 

 

If we can't download it before the 17th i want my 70€ of funds BACK!

BreaKinGbAd666 The issue is the uncertainty of the whole thing, where some people are saying the expected download date is showing as 16th/17th yet others like myself are seeing the date as 13th.  All that's expected here is an honest and clear set of information about the dates.

 

As I've stated previously I have no issue with waiting if need be, but will not accept lies or false claims.  If I were to buy a tv and pay for next day delivery and then wait days for it's arrival I would not be a happy bunny, and I expect the same here.  

 

I pre ordered a digital copy knowing I could pre load it based on claims made in the store, I'm now seeking clarification over the exact date of the download.  

 

To put things in perspective try to imagine how some people in the UK will be feeling who still lumber along with speeds around 1mb, if they decided to go digital based on the expected 4 days time to download an install their game only then to face a longer waiting period before they can start, thus causing their day one purchase to become available way after the launch date purely due to their shocking internet speed.  I'm sure these people would feel ripped off.  

 

I'm in a lucky position of having a fiber connection and shouldn't have to wait too long after the release date/time.  I still want to know when I'll be able to start the download.

If they give us false information I will take legal proceeding against them.

 

 

Only reason why I pre ordered it and paid the extra amount of £

 

It will be a total joke and kick in the face is they screw us over, I don't play many games and GTA series is mainly the game I only play from the orginal to IV, I hope they can give us some info.
