The bigger question is "are Rockstar ready?" - the demand for this is going to be so huge that there's no way the servers are going to cope. They've already warned players to expect "issues".

I am thoroughly looking forward to it though.

I think it launches at midnight US time so somewhere between 5am and 8am here.

I'm at 94.5% complete in the single player, all I have left are collectables and aerial stunts so I'm looking forward to getting more content.

I think a main problem is going to be the map and the amount off players per server,

The map is massive as you already know, there is only 16 or 32 (can't remember) people on each server, you'll be lucky if you pass one Nevermind do the same activity as them..

About the heists, can you do it with anyone or does it have to be friends?

Just to be pedantic

Noon is Noon and Midnight is Midnight as they are both, for a brief micro-second neither AM nor PM.

There's currently no set time for GTAOnline to go live, it will be some point tomorrow but Rockstar are pretty much fearing and yet expecting the servers to be lit on fire and have admitted there will be a few problems during the launch phase as they have been rapidly upgrading and re-allocating their servers for the game.

I do not work for Rockstar Games.

I hope they don't make the same mistake Simcity made.

It won't affect Single Player outside of the already heavy traffic areas such as Social Club features like snapmatic Picture saving, Stats Transfers, Vehicle Storage, etc.

Yes of course, along with previous modes like Team Deathmatch, Race, GTA Race, etc.

Oh but I do, you're just jealous. Hell, people from the website have been to Rockstar NYC to actually play GTAOnline just the other day along with other fansite admins. I got a bundle pack of GTAV stuff as a gift, which is common.

edit: Sorry to anyone else, I don't usually like to talk about the benefits as I feel it comes across as bragging, but this person has been at me for the past few days determined to try and "prove" I'm a fake and that I have been making all of this up for the past three years.

I am looking forward to just messing about online with my friend. After dicking around in GTA4 online doing the same thing in single player on GTA5 felt a little hollow in comparison so been able to venture into the online world of GTA5 should be awesome.

I expect I will spend most of tomorrow bitching and moaning about lag or servers been down though TBH. I fear it is going to take a real hammer now so many people have finished with the single player and are now clamouring to get online with the game.

Any news on how voice chat will work and how to do private groups?

I must be blind then because I can't see anything that isn't already in the public domain.

I'll probably look for ways to make a ton of money as fast as possible. I need to get two more golds in SP first though.

Yeah, no, let's turn this into another Attack Ash thread where you and others always shut up when I ask how can I prove it to you guys? Again, I've gave you answers, check my posts along with the date, every time I tell you to do that, you go quiet until the next thread pops up and you start attacking me again.

Seriously this shit is getting old, I also asked you a question in the other thread, what benefit do I have for pretending on this forum for over THREE years, either I'm a psycho or I'm telling the truth.

Right now I really can't think of any other reason you guys enjoy attacking me on here other than to just provoke a reaction or you're jealous.

I never said you weren't in pr and ran a website. Only that you never post stuff that isn't already in the PD. What in this thread so far is new? Its all from the newsire article from last week.

I wont nag any more.

Did I say anything in this thread is exclusive info? I said this at some other point, but yeah, not EVERYTHING I say is going to be new and amazing, believe it or not we have to repeat info to to make sure people know what to expect.

Bloody hell, some people.

Nope. you don't you just like to think your in with the boys because you are a admin on a moderately popular fan site. You were probably too young to play the first few GTA Games anyway/
