So, you quoting The Guardian is definative is it? This is a product that was advertised as as a game with online capability, therefore, it is not a 'Free add on'...I can only assume you're a troll, or completely ignorant.
Without wishing to belabour the point, when you pay for a product that is broken, you have a right to complain (in a reasonable way, as many are) when it is NOT fit for purpose. If you're happy with Rockstar's 'Ship it and fix it' ethos, as well as their deliberate tactic of releasing the single player only to ensure near perfect reviews and profits, knowing their online lauch was going to be an unmitigated disaster, then good for you.
It's not about the waiting/servers/badly coded mess anymore for some of us, but the principle of it.
Bottom line: We pay for a product, it's not unreasonable to expect it to work. Nothing is perfect, but it shouldn't be broken.
Your argument is pathetic.
The Rockstar Cloud Servers are Unavailable right now. Please try again later.......fs

Its hardly free... I paid what i paid for the full service not for just the single player. That is why it comes as part of the same collection.
I'm as frustrated as the next guy with the server instability and other issues with the online service.. but these guys released the game of the decade just a couple short weeks ago to unprecedented sales and reviews. Rockstar then proceeded to say that online would be coming but would have a rocky and buggy launch due to the overwhelming sales and player base which they had vastly underestimated pre-release.
So now you're promoting a campaign to tear them down for false advertising on a free ad-on that they don't need to do and for which they are making no additional profit?
Wow. Chill out you lunatics.
I bet you work for R* nightgod lol
So by that logic; where can i grab my free copy of gta online? o yeah thats right it costs money from a shop. Wise up.... Its free to play on there severs you muppit. Its not free to buy the soft ware !! lol....
I'm looking at the back of my GTAV case and it reads:
XBOX LIVE - Online multiplayer 2-16, co-op 2-16, game-content download, leaderboards.
There are things advertised on the back of the case, which means this is what my money should be getting me. The fault is not with Microsoft and the Xbox live service so they're not liable.
I don't want compensation at all. I just think the logic of GTAO supposedly being a free addon, and we therefore don't have any right to be annoyed that it isn't working, is bogus.
Say I buy an Xbox 360 console and it comes with a free controller. Should I not complain that I didn't get my money's worth if I get home to find the controller faulty?
This game has been one big disappointment, it's a game I was waiting for long time and one of the few games I paid the full price for just to get this shit? There are single player missions that let crash my console, sometimes load times just continu endlessly that I have to just restart my console, I can't do any GTA online stuff. I'm normally very positive about things but like L4Lefty already stated. When you buy a product as an end-user you expect it at least to run decent. If it doesn't you are normally able to bring it back to the shop for either repair or get your money back. What about this? It's just an unfinished product we paid a lot of money for that's full with errors. Unacceptable! I feel like I'm screwed over. I hope you come up with something very good, very quick Rockstar because this case has damaged your reputation like no other. I'll never look the same against a product of you like I did before and I'm sure I'm not alone.
@NiteGod I'm with you bro people need to chill and just be patient. RockStar couldn't anticipate the demand. Consumers aren't patient and want what they want now. I paid for this and have lost characters too but I'm not crying about it. In my day Job I have to support users too and get people calling and crying about shit that i have to fix. So I understand what RockStar is going through and will just wait till they fix it. They are people just like us, they aren't miracle workers they have to troubleshoot and figure shit out, such is life.. The Millions made on the game don't go to them, they just get a pay check like the rest of us. So Keep Calm and Play Story Mode.
your an idiot whoever posted this... so what they are down atm EVERYWHERE. Least it's not like EA and simcity... (simsuburb to some) where the damn game is only available to play online and NEVER really worked in the first 3+ months. EA started releasing DLC's before the game was even functional to many.
The game is a Big Release. They couldn't have possibly though so many would hit it so hard. As they have said they are TRYING to fix the problems, they have said they are releasing the stimulus package as a sorry and thank you to all the online players.
Just because it's been down a few hours/days no need to be a whining bitch. go play story or something until it's fixed, grow a life and get over yourself. This game is primarily a story game not like simcity. You need to grow up if your going to bitch or complain about a simple problem that was unforeseen. They ARE FIXING the problems.
If you want you money back fine but as long as you pay a $10 fee per hour of gameplay you have used as a rental game. Or a $8 per day rental since the day you have owned it. In other words SHUT YOUR MOUTH, your another winging bitch that only wants their way.
When can we just sit down and play a normal game of GTA Online, without fear of loosing our games....
We paid good money for this service.
I have exactly the same, all of my friends(friends of my friends) which are about 30 people are all playing without this error, even though I am getting this for forever
Nope not at all I'm just tired of everyone bitching.
Right, the single player. That's what you bought.
"Launched on Tuesday, this free multiplayer add-on to Grand Theft Auto V..."
"...this free multiplayer add-on to Grand Theft Auto V..."
"...free multiplayer add-on..."
Do you see what I'm saying here?
Quote From the guardian.
So do i get a free copy?
So how do i get a free copy?
You get a free copy when you buy the regular game. It's a free add-on. The definition of add-on: something that has been or can be added to an existing object or arrangement, so if it's a free add-on, it can be added on to the original game for free. So it's a free add-on. Not a free stand alone. That would be the case if you could just go and download it by itself. So again, free add-on. Am I getting through to you at all?
Why don't rockstar and other companies just make a game with only the map of the game on the disc but its made specifically for multiplayer reasons only, so you creat a character via WiFi m, instead of using "ALL" the disc space on a short bullshit ass story that was no doubt fun and exciting yet short and boring after you beat the game but ye
I agree the only reason I bought the game was because of the advertisement saying I would be able to play with my friends online
@NiteGod they advertised that free add on in working condition that free add on was why people bought the game, that free add on is currently not working. False Advertisement
Tries and even then the had 2 whole weeks after release to see the demand of players also have made peperations for the game to function properly
Frustrating! You would of at least thought after all this time they would have fixed these problems! It's not fair to sell a broken game that you can't access the online because the servers are always down :/
About the online being free... It is not! It is included in the same product and many, like myself was interested in the online aspect only.
R* staff use a lot of time on the online therefore devaluing the single player.
Simple as mate, they owe us some f-in money! Beit in game or not.
I don't get much spare time and used it for absolutely nothing. Games may be a waste of time but this is literal.
Yeah its a great game man and i want to play as much as anyone.
Sadly it is broke and i highly doubt that we could tear down a huge company like R*
Maybe some free content and better updates.
Why wait two weeks and push the fact it is a seperate game?
To the "Free" aspect that people are talking about, it is not free for us, I went out and purchased this game last week played single player for a bit then herd that multiplayer was being released, this being the only game I am playing atm on my Xbox, i went out and bought an Xbox live membership just so I could strictly play this game multiplayer.. To my surprize everytime i try to play the cloud server is down.. So its wasting my money that i had to spend on Xbox live..
@NiteGod - Just because you download an addon/update/patch to enable the GTA online functionality does not mean that it is a 'free addon'. You seem to associate a download that adds content as an add on. Which in the sense of a Call Of Duty map pack that you pay for I can understand.
A free add on for GTA V would be additional content such as new cars, a new area, new weapons. Basically content that you do not pay for that is added to the original item that you purchased and was not intended to be included in the orginal game/release.
When GTA V was announced it was billed as a single player and online game. On the product description of many retailers it is listed as an online game. Rockstar has billed it as an online game as well. Even the product box lists online multiplayer. If this was additional content that you do not pay for it would not be listed on the product box. As to do so would be false advertising.
So please kindly take a step back and have a think about what you are saying. As to moan at others when you clearly have no grasp on product descriptions, the Sale of Goods act and what you are saying is a bit rich.
FIX UR FIN GAME!!!! Serioulsly just lost my lvl 28 character and I saved it every day
it's been quite a while are the servers gonna be up anytime today?
Rockstar yall have been my favorite publisher for a long time and I know yall won't let me down. Please fix this because I love playing GTAV online. Good Job with the Game amd keep up the good work.. PSN: XzHkCSoleChylezX
The multiplayer feature is plastered on the cd case you morons. It's part of the full game...bunch of fanboys in denial.
