So when can we pre-download GTA 5 ? Why is Sony europe so LAZY

101 Replies 2,847 Views Created 13-09-2013

Seems the people in europe working for sony enjoy hiding mostly, like the head of EU communications has 3 tweets and we still cant download GTA 5 even tho thousands of people tried at midnight, whats going on here ?

 

Cant sony fire all these lazy people and have some people who LOVE working for sony instead?

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.

Yep, I've received a fair few reports from people saying that they're downloading it now. If the auto download isn't working for you try going in to the download history in the PlayStation Store to see if it is available to download manually.

First of all:

Thanks to Sony for keeping their word about the preload this time. Good job.

And now that this is solved, what it's the official time on the 17th when we will be able to start playing? 00:00 gmt? Anybody know anything about that?

Could some one advice me on something please.

 

Iv just pre-ordered GTAV, When i was prompted to download the game, blimp and theme, i didnt have enough space on my hdd, so i backed out of the store to delete some games.

Now i dont have any option to download the game ?, its not in my "downloads", and when i pick gtav in teh store it says "already purchased", with no option to download ?.. i also rebooted my ps3 to see if it would auto download, which it didnt.. ?. what do i do now ?

When you say it's not in your "downloads" are you talking about the downloads in the ps3 menu or the downloads section in the store? It appeared for me in the download section of the store, at the bottom of the left hand menu.

You could also try to log in the store from a pc browser to check if the game appears in your downloads section, maybe it's some synchronization problem.

I checked the store download section too, wasnt there either.

 

But after i rebooted my ps3 the second time and went back to the store, it no longer said "Purchased" under GTAV. It said "Pre-Order" again. I reckon it cancled, so i re-preordered and am downloading now =]

 

Edit,

Now i just hope i wont get charged twice, i just checked my "Transaction History" and 2 seperate orders are there for GTAV. It shows zero amount paid for either yet....

Good to know, be sure to check they didn't charge you twice.

Mine is downloaded and installed already. When I checked the info of the installed game it says:

"Start date: 17/09/2013 0:00". So midnight launch confirmed!!

I have this downloading at the moment, but it keeps coming up saying "You have items in the store ready for download" - I have downloaded the Atomic Blimp but can't download the theme until tomorrow, so why does it keep telling me this?

DL'ed and installed. Awaiting a 0200 start time according to my PS3. In Melb, AU so no idea why the 2 hour delay.

Wish we got more for our digital DL though.

I presume the Canadian store falls under US so I presume there is no pre-load...
