    Should Rockstar have delayed GTA Online launch?

    PC gamers are used to launch problems with huge games. I remember tearing my hair out trying to get onto Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3.

    What do you guys think about Rockstar's issues with GTA Online? Do you think they should have waited until it was ready to launch or are you happy to sit back and wait until everything is okay?

    I've voted NO. I think with an online game of this scale, the only way to see all the issues is by launching it. I have every faith that it will be as smooth as silk shortly and Rockstar will fix all issues and continuously work to improve it.

    Exactly what I was going to say, Steven. There is no way to account for every situation and scenario until you go live with it. lol.....we've seen that ourselves right here at PSU.

    I voted NO also. How can they fully test a game that has a potential of 15+ million users in house?!

    I know they said there would likely be issues during the first few weeks, maybe it should have released with the word BETA included in the title, that's basically how I'm treating it at the moment.

    No. Besides the fact that delays cost money, the scale of gta5 means there will be bugs not found for months...people who moan about online bugs should shut their piehole and contribute to rockstar's quest to fix the bugs via said email address that they gave.

    With a massive rollout like that you are likely always got to have issues. Just don't know if they thought it would be that bad.

    On the scale of how many actually tried to log onto online, i think they never knew the outcome really and assumed things would settle down i think
