Rockstar issues update on GTA V Online issues

Rockstar has provided an update on the issues affecting GTA V players via the Rockstar Games Support site.

Here you can view a dedicated article listing out the most common technical issues being reported.

Things are changing and developing frequently but here are some latest updates as of this afternoon:

- For PlayStation 3 users, a PlayStation Network server issue was detected that was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users. This was preventing most players from accessing GTA Online altogether and as of this morning, that problem was resolved.

- There is an issue that is preventing some players from getting through the first tutorial mission across both platforms. Many players have been able to get through this with repeated retries, and Rokstar are working on unblocking this for everyone as soon as possible.

- This morning, Rockstar experienced some instability across the GTA Online services which is affecting even people who have progressed beyond the tutorial mission. It is identifying these issues now and working to restore stability for users as soon as possible.

- For the time being and until Rockstar have been able to get everybody access to GTA Online and things are running smoothly, it has disabled the option of purchasable GTA$ cash packs. Players can however keep on earning GTA$ by pulling off Jobs and other profitable gameplay activities rather than purchasing cash packs.

You can keep updated on these and other common issues by subscribing to the GTA Online Launch Status Rockstar Support article at http://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/articles/200426246-GTA-Online-Launch-Status-Latest-Updates.

I've seen the opening video for GTA online about 5 times now, what a mess! Luckily I've got plenty of the superior (for now) single player content to work my way through...

The only issue I've had is it corrupting my completed single player save.

It's crap Tootell, still got my mates copy so I thought I'd give it a go as it's a free gold weekend, then the update screwed my single player game, and I can't be bothered waiting half an hour to see if it's actually going to let me play online.

I always wait a few weeks with these sort of things until the inevitable bugs are fixed. Word of advice youngsters, dont jump in too quick!

They seem to have at least partially fixed it now, tried it again last night and there was another update, it still reset my single player game, but I was able to recover my completed save, presumable because I had more than one game save and not because they did anything to fix it. And I did manage to get online eventually with it, and even got some jobs to work after a couple of hours of mugging passers by for spare change. Still, it's pretty meh, GTA is a jack of all trades really, it does so much at once in such a large environment that you forgive it that it's not a great shooter, or racer or anything really because it's such a well done sandbox. Once you dump a bunch of players together in to a small portion of it and ask them to kill each other or something and it's flaws start to become quite apparent though.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
