Have you ever noticed that people are completely unaware of how these things work? It's like they've only had Xbox LIVE (using Xbox as the example because it's my system of choice ((until PS4 of course)) but this applies everywhere) for ten f*cking minutes.
No, Australia doesn't get the update first. Yeah, you'll be waiting until the 2nd. Welcome to every other console digital release in history. Yes, this IS fair, because you aren't waiting longer than everyone else. You just f*cking think you are because you can't comprehend the idea of time zones.
Yeah, it's pretty common for Xbox updates to roll out in the morning. Not at 2am PST/ 5am EST. Those are marketplace update times. This type of thing typically rolls out in the late morning. That is unless Rockstar actually does have the figurative "switch" to flip and turn on their servers. That makes guessing a time a bit more difficult. Given that all evidence seems to point to there being a small, few MB sized update, it seems that it may be a quick patch from MS/Sony. As a side note, Sony does these things far later in the day.
And for the love of f*ck, stop demanding that people link you to parts of the ToS, or where "Rockstar said it". You want your proof? Have a look at 8 f*cking years the consoles have been around and how the system works every damn time.
As a disclaimer, this obviously doesn't apply to everyone. Not all Australians are losing their sh*t nor is everyone completely oblivious to the obvious.
