Just wanted to let everyone know and I am going to put this in as many ways possible.

 

The Launch of GTA Online will depend on XBL and PSN Management.

 

Rockstar has no control of when Xbox live and PSN updates, the 'patch' to enable GTAO will depend on what time MS and Sony decide to update.

 

It is possible that certain regions will have the update/access before others, for ex. UK could have it before the U.S. or vice versa because XBL and PSN is run by different people in different regions, they update at different times.

 

Please take this into consideration before you start getting mad at Rockstar if GTAO does not launch when you expect it. 

 

Can't wait to see everyone online! Practice up until then! :santa:

Please post link to any Terms of Service or Xbox Live/PSN Policies which say that developers cannot allow online updates until the console manufacturers allow it/schedule it, please.  I need hard proof to back up these claims, some sort of evidence would be welcomed.

I doubt it has anything to do with PSN, only content on PSN is updated on a specific day in a week (here it's usually on a wednesday), but I saw game updates happening all around the week.

If its a game update, it shouldnt require PSN to update.

Games like Fifa for example has had plenty of game updates that where not on the same day as PSN updates

Well everyone is treating this as a game being added to PSN for some odd reason

People should learn the difference between PSN updates and game updates through the playstation network.

You clearly don't understand how these things work.

I'm pretty sure most people do know the difference.

Well considering all the posts I've seen, I highly doubt it. 

 

Seems like people believe that rockstar sends over a CD with the content over to Sony/Microsoft that later updates it when they feel like it's time...

Didn`t they say it is a GAME update and not PSN update? I may be awfully wrong here, but what does PSN have to do with the game client downloading a patch from its parent server?
