I am reading the psn forums and there are hundreds of people claiming DOA consoles. It also seems the servers are not any better. Yes I know its first day of launch. But, as i said a few weeks ago. Playstation has never had good servers. Their OS has always been clunky and don't even get my started on their update times.
I've been a Playstation guy since my mid teens in the 90's. I bought my first Xbox 8 months ago. PS4 might have slightly better innards. but, I have enjoyed xbox live more then i ever enjoyed PSN. I am going exclusively to Xbox this time around because Microsoft has proven to me that their OS is more stable and has given me a happier gaming experience in 8 months then psn did in 16 years.
I know when I get my Xbox one their 300 thousand servers will be stable and I'll get in some good gaming.
For those of you who haven't figured out the plate system online. Here is how you do it.
MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN GTA ONLINE, Go to your ifruit app. scroll down to your online character. Your car will say it has the custom plate but it doesn't. All you need to do is select a new color plate. Press order. Then viola! Within a few seconds it will tell you to go to Los Santos customs to to complete you order. You can do this to all your custom car orders by scrolling right in your ifruit app.
Bug: I ran into a bug tonight while customizing all ten of my plates. The Ifruit app didn't update two of my cars. It still had cars i previously owned. if you run into this issue. Take the car or cars that are not showing up to LSC and change or upgrade something. immediately after leaving the garage open your app back up. It will update that car into your garage.
I was in a lobby last night just modding my cars, playing golf and getting new tattoos. When i was at the tat shop this guy kept blowing up my car. I'd call the insurance company and send my mechanic after it. He did this about 8 times before he left.
Most of the time when I die from other players my car doesn't get impounded. Its at the same spot it was before i died.
Most of the arguments from people are based on the fact that you simply don't understand how to play the game...
I started playing V at 9am this morning. I didn't turn it off until 7pm. The only reason i shut it off was because Cops was coming on. I will fire it back up around 9:30 and probably play until midnight..
“We buy things we don't need with money we don't have to impress people we don't like.”
I realize most don't understand that because its not cool for the younger generation. But, Its true. Who cares what cars other players drive. I drive a freaking El Camino in the game. I don't own any garages or apartments. I am having a blast with this game. You need to go read the Tortoise beats the Hare.
Its not what you have in life that makes you happy. Its all about attitude.
I am going to admit, The last couple of days i became more and more frustrated with GTA online. It felt like a never ending grind to get money. I had to quit playing it altogether.
I love GTA 5. Yes, On and offline have its issues. But, What game doesn't? I was watching youtube videos today of other gamers playing online and they were having a blast. They were playing it the way it should be played. like all other GTA multiplayers.
I fired up online again today. Without even thinking about money. I started today with 28 grand in the bank. I just turned it off for a bit with 17 grand in the bank. I got a bunch of cool clothing and a tat. Apartment. I'm not even gonna worry about getting an apartment. It will come when it comes. I got into some pretty funny chases with other players. I found these two guys getting chased by the cops. I stopped and started drinking a pisswasser and they ran me over. I came back they were running down the beach and i heard them say they wanted to steal my truck. So i came up to them honked and gave them the finger. They started raging on the mic .
The reason I wasn't enjoying online and what i think the reason is for most people was the never ending grind for money. f*ck the money!! Just enjoy the game for what it is!
I think people's problems here is. They want everything and they want it now. They don't want to work for weapons and ranks. They just want to run around the city killing players without consequence.
Whats pretty funny about all this is. If rockstar made GTA 5 without anything but what these players want. just simple shooting each other. They'd complain its boring cause all you can do is run around shooting each other.
This isn't a game problem this is a culture problem of personality lacking lazy I want it now culture. They produce nothing and want everything in return.
This game is good for you guys. You want a cool car? Well you gotta pay for it. You want an apartment. You gotta pay for it. God forbid you work in life......
Its pretty funny. Some of you guys are unemployed and are mad because rockstar is making you work for your stuff.
maybe if you had real jobs you wouldn't be bored of the game already..
