Pretty sure I hit "Add to cart" - and I got the theme to go along with it.

But I checked my Visa statement online and it isn't popping up.

Yeah it takes a few days to appear on your statement.

Dunno what bank you use but I use TD and I got a charge from Sony either the next day or 2 days later.

If you got the theme then the pre-order must have went through. Go to your "account management" section under PSN and then select "transaction history" if you see V in there then it's fine.

You are probably getting the error because you've already purchased it so it is obviously not letting you do so a second time.

There was never a problem with pre-order on the North American PSN. The problem was just from the European PSN because that's where the leak came from due to pre-load.

Don't really know what you're reporting but hopefully some of the above helps you.

What leaks are you people talking about!? All I've seen are a few hackers trying to decode but not succeeding. What have I missed?

Loading icon, Main menu background and music (radio stations).

You can look it up, not sure if you will get it here.

Edit: Nevermind, look it up here: URL to spoilers section of GTA V!

Just audio leaks. No game footage, or map.

TV snips and commercials leaked too.

Question for Europeans.

How much is the pre-load game? Since you don't have the dvd box with instructions, well you know digital.
I checked PSN, it's 70 is that correct?

While the pricing may be questionable, there are various positives related to downloading a title off of the Playstation Store, chiefly (depending on server overload or one's internet connection) the immediacy of it. Yes, there are bound to be issues related to the sheer amount of users attempting to download GTA V upon its release, but again, the convenience of doing so is most likely what compels many to do so, especially those who don't wish to stand in line for hours on end for a transaction that's bound to last less than five minutes, tops.

 

I still prefer a tangible copy whenever available, but there are times when accruing one just isn't possible.

Just out of curiosity, Where are you from? Yesterday over at Finland I checked the Store because of this whole thing and it said "13/09/2013" for the actual game and "16/09/2013" for the blimp and theme. Of course my info might not be "updated" because I pre-ordered it on 26th day or so(?)

That's what it says on my UK account. On the 13 of Sept i can download the game.

I've been quite unsure about it myself as of late, but I'm now starting to trust on the 13th date, which is definetly a relief for me and my not-so-fast connection.

So it is actually the 13th and people are getting confused with just the wallpaper on the 16th? Does that mean that we'll have to download a patch or something for the 1st October for Online use?

So basically those who pre-order digital and download it early will get to play the game at exactly midnight...better than standing around in the cold waiting for a copy and then having to download the game when you get home :D

Should hopefully get to play at midnight if you download it via the store. Its a great way if you don't mind not having the physical copy. However, I'm just worried about the update/patch for GTA Online when it rolls around on the 1st now.

I can't imagine the patch being so massive that it'll take 30 mins to an hour to download. I am not worrying that much about the patch but we'll see what happens.

 

The pre-load is indeed on the 13th (Friday before release) according to the download list for EU pre-orders. The blimp and theme are locked from download until the 16th.

 

So if you pre-load on the 13th it will be unlocked midnight of the 17th and I reckon that even if there is a patch you will still be playing sooner than those who went to a midnight launch.

 

My body is ready.

A quick inquiry, sir -- did you pre-order the EU edition?

No, not me.

 

But my cousin has through his EU PSN account and some wallet money he had left. He lives in Canada so....

 

Really doesn't matter where you live as long as you've got a PSN account in the EU and some wallet money from that region (pounds, euros etc) since the unlock goes by server time.

We do not know yet, we will find out on release day.

 

But I would reckon that it's very likely considering the game went gold in August and they probably have discovered bugs since then and fixed them. Those fixes will have to come in a day one patch since it is obviously too late to get them on the disc.

Probably for the better; though I'm downloading the digital version, much could go wrong on the evening of the launch.

Can anyone confirm if it is indeed the 13th we can start downloading or if it is the 16th. I keep checking the PSN store, but all I see is the 16th. This is in the UK store by the way.

Check (this is if you have allready preordered) your recent buys in your account management, it should say the 13th. I am in the UK too and it says the 13th for me.
