Though there are glitches, but it is not impacting its popularity even a bit. Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) has gone online. Here are secrets & cheats for PS3, Xbox 360

Grand Theft Auto V launched the online version of its game this Tuesday but players faced slow servers and hung up gaming for some time.

Buyers of the console GTA5 got the online version that lets up to 16 players inhabit the sprawling playing area of Los Santos. The players can create new characters, play special missions, and set up private headquarters where they can flaunt custom cars and invite other players for private parties.

Rockstar had mentioned in a public statement, “We’ve designed house party invitations specifically to be a friendly social affair where players can visit each other’s pads without fear of having them ruined or losing their hard-earned vehicles in the process. If someone invites you into their property, then it is considered a friendly visit and you will not be able to shoot up their place or steal their cars from their garage.”

GTA Online went live on Tuesday, but almost immediately players began reporting difficulties in logging on or accessing missions. To be fair, Rockstar had warned last week that there could be “teething problems” with the game’s launch.

Rockstar had commented, “The first couple of weeks we expect to be heavily focused on tuning the experience as it goes from internal testing to the reality of being played by tons of people in the real world so that all the usual teething problems for an online game are overcome. We hope it will all run incredibly smoothly, but please bear with us if it doesn’t, and help us fix any and all problems!”

SimCity, that was also eagerly awaited by gamers, collapsed due to server problems and the company had to issue refunds later, even leading to the resignation of the CEO.

Unlike Simcity, the challenge for Roackstar was even greater because GTA is one of the most popular games of all time. It took Rockstar five years and $170m to develop the current game. In return it got to bag a billion dollars in sales within three days of its launch.

There was a rumour that GTA 5 online also lets users use real world cash to buy cars and ammunition in the game. Players created an uproar saying well-off players would then have unfair advantage, but Rockstar said this had been taken into account.

“We can assure you that the game is designed such that the option of purchasable GTA should not disrupt the playing field – and there are a few mechanics in place to help ensure that,” it said in the release notes. “No one can begin GTA Online and simply spend a lot of money out of the gate to get a leg up. You will have to earn your stripes.”
