Yeah but I had the story to play when it first came out, and they probably would have fixed these problems by now if GTAO released day one. But now that I've 100 percented it, the online is all i have left to do and it most likely won't be functional for days
They really should have run an open Beta during those two weeks
Do you know how big the file would be?
Non existant besides the 8 gigs you installed. The beta would be playable to anyone who bought the game and the beta should have went live when the game came out. October 1st is when the patched up, complete version should have dropped.
Also as previously mentioned, if online came out when single player did the servers would be cut in half, at least as most people would be playing single player.
