Oh boy. This is not going well. No one seems to be able to play this thing currently online, and the nation of bratty GTA players is not taking it in stride:

@RockstarSupport what’s the point in realising GTA online when you can’t save your data because ur cloud severs are down ? POINTLESS !!!!!!!

The official support site that was posting updates on the status of the errors and server issues is down as well now.

I was hoping to try this out after work but if its like this now with the majority of people at work/school, I can’t imagine how bad it’s going to be later tonight.

worst online launch ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is what a billion bucks buys these days. Rockstar you would be better off making the game right before you launch it.You guys ever thought that a bata demo might be a good idea to work out the kinks.before you let down millions and millions of fansI have been playing since before there was online gaming and this is the worst start to a online game I have ever seen..

I don’t think Don2shoes was paying attention when Sim City launched a while back.
