I've just finished creating my character (I'm really pleased with how he looks) after an hour and a half (I'm a bit of a perfectionist, it's just my nature) and it's just hanging on trying to connect, then saying that the server is unavailable.
I've been expecting this, so I can't say I'm surprised. I feel sorry for anyone who took a day off work or whatever for this though... surely it must feel like a bit of a waste?
I'm expecting for things to remain the same, but gradually improve over the next few days. If anything, hopefully all should be working by the end of the next two weeks.
Edit - I've just tried connecting again and I'm getting a black screen that hasn't gone away for about 5 minutes now. My PS3 is working just fine. I'm going to reboot the game.
Yeah, I totally anticipated this. People are throwing a tantrum, it's pretty funny. I wanna play, but I understand the issues of trying to maintain servers when millions are all trying to do the same thing at the same time. Rockstar even warned about this, so people really need to calm down. I'd never cancel a day off work for online haha. People who did that need to use their head more.
