what R*'s problem is that they think they can have everything go to plan and everyone to follow what they want. they made euro retailers ship it a day before release so no one would get it a day early, but that didn't stop people,
there was heaps of videos leaked gameplay being uploaded on the weekend before release.
apparently they released multiplayer late too and was quoted in a meeting"we don't want people to get sick of the story mode" and also they cut money in half on missions because we were "earning it to quick" well R* of course people are going to sit there countless hours trying get money that is already hard enough to get without constantly repeating the same race over and over and you bas*ards reducing money.
the $500,000 will forever be coming at the end of this month/week. Rockstar have to wake up and realise that they cant control everything and then complain when it doesn't go to plan.
