        @Rockstar Are you planning GTAV for next-gen consoles? (PS4 and XB-ONE)

              @dragonfury754 I just bought the digital copy, it seems that I have to always be online to use it. And you have to download all of the packs instead of installing them. I only bought the digital copy because my disc tray is broken, but I think I would have rather had a physical copy. I haven't seen how it plays, I am still waiting on the packs to finish, I just got it.

            I am seriously pissed off right now. I have spent 5 hours trying to fix this s**t. Every damn time I launch the game and it's on the "Loading Story Mode" part it loads it for about 5 seconds, Goes back to the intro and then it just repeats forever. I bought this on the Xbox marketplace because I happened to get a gift card as a present and you should be amazed that I have any patience left. First of all I thought I had just about enough of space on my Xbox hard drive, but no. Of course I need to download another 7 gigs worth of updates. After deleting almost all of my games just to make enough space for GTA V, what I mentioned above happens. I'd rather not spend another 7 hours re-installing so I think I'll leave it at that.

              @dragonfury754 I did fix it but STILL the marketplace version is s**t. The peformance and graphics are worse and everytime I go to a loading screen the game crashes

              I was wondering if the new GoD version has the same problem that the disc version does for older Xboxes. That being that the game will randomly freeze during gameplay. If it does not have this problem would R* be willing to exchange a physical copy for a digital code? I can't even reasonably play this game on my Xbox.

                Ok i read on R* support page the reason why the rat loader was removed.
                So your telling me you guys removed it just because it's suppose to be classified as a utility vehicle. what's the big deal so what if it's a utility vehicle it not an exploit nobody knew it but you guys. instead of worrying about the players having a vehicle just because YOU made a mistake doesn't mean it should be taken there's way bigger issues in gta online then people having a harmless truck.

                In the UK, on demand costs £49.99

                In a retail shop in the UK it's £34.99

                Explain to me why anyone would download the digital copy when it's £15 more expensive and less flexible.

                Until this difference is fixed, I will not buy into your digital downloads.

                Are the pop-up problems (i.e. the ones that occurs while installing both discs in the physical version) solved (or solvable e.g. via USB) in the digital version? Thanks. :)

                  So, once all the install packs are done, I can play right?

                    When is this supposed Simulus Package being released? It was mentioned in early October and it was referenced that both installments of $250,000.00 would be deposited before the month was out.

                    WELL??? WHERES IT AT???
                    AND you didn't even fix the online game. Still freezing everywhere.
                    People are going to get tired of waiting on you to fix things and also to put out this Stimulus Package and move on to a different game. Big fail.

                    I have GTA V downloaded on Xbox marketplace. So, the question is, how do I install it? I've heard that there are problems depending on how you install it... Please, R*! Answer my question. I want this GAME SO BAD, but I don't want to ruin the gameplay by installing it the wrong way...

                    I downloaded the game for xbox, i went to gta online and made a character, it saved it to the cloud. This was after all the problems with online's release were mostly resolved. I then tried to acess my character, but no matter what i do it takes me to the create a new character menu. i see my character (not his apearence, but it shows me his character slot; level and money) so whenever i select his slot it deletes him, to free up his slot to make a new character. i then made a new character, completed the tutorial, saved and exited online, and then i had the same problem again when i tried acess him, i repeated this several times. Then I went into my hard drive, into gta and i deleted it, but i still have my saves and the install packs. im trying to reinstall the game. PLEASE HELP ME ROCKSTAR, i dont want to lose my campaign data but i want to be able to play my online character.

                    Rockstar needs to make GTA 5 online so we can reorganise cars in the garage and so we can run inside the apartment. !!!

                    THANKS FOR THE COOPERATION : P

                      @shiv1996 OK here's an idea as well. what about some usable interiors? i mean offline i can understand but online?? that should be different. it should have interiors to be used for escaping the police and death matches and running and gunning in general? this "IDEA" has merit R*. i am sure.
