    And when you are done you can buy Uncharted 1,2,3 and Last of Us on the cheap as well.

    I'll definitely be checking it out tonight, assuming MS push the patch through in a timely manner.

    I just setup a crew. I've joined some others that are specific to Australia and 360 but since you can be a member of up to 5 crews I thought I'd get one setup for TOG.

    Rockstar Games Social Club - The Older Gamers

    I'm on XBox 360 but I think crews are cross platform so feel free to make it one of your 5 even if you don't represent as it.

    The update is out and applied, but not sure if servers are up yet, or just overloaded. I'm waiting to agree to the Online Policy atm. Will try to remember to update when I get on.

    EDIT: Now creating my character.

    So it's up and running but not overly reliable, as you'd expect, and I couldn't get a Job going until I hosted one.

    It seems I was lucky and got a few things done before things went down completely. Oh well, maybe it will be playable in a couple of weeks. I was pleasantly surprised that there are fully voiced missions in there.

    Some observations so far:
    Cops are a MAJOR PITA in Online vs Story because you can't just jack any car and cruise around. If you use your own car atm, assuming you were lucky enough to get that far in the game, you'll spend all your money trying to keep it repaired.

    There are no aircraft in Online yet. I'm guessing they'll only appear as players buy them. I haven't checked the army base yet... Something to try today.

    Right, so yeah the game has been well worth it since i bought it on Saturday - i haven't experienced any of those game problems people have talked about, but it is a little buggier than i'm used to from a GTA game... especially where story chat is concerned on the phone. I'm just getting to finish the story before i try online - that is if it's even working fully by then. At the moment i'm finding it hard to see how i'll make 150 million to buy the golf course though!

    Any word on whether money earned online adds to single-player and if all that is linked?

    The only way you'll make serious bank is by leaving the Assassination chain of missions that let you work the stock market until as late in the game as you can so you have plenty of cash to work it with.

    They're not linked. I wish they were.

    I jacked a few, problem with high end cars, they are too hot to modify. But you can buy them online.

    My Car got auto repaired when completing missions.

    Money is easy to come by, I have 22K so far =)

    What I dont like. Is you can use your real money to buy ingame money :(
    $3.95 for 100K and
    $24.95 for 1.25M

    Heya Guys,

    Lord_Grax here.
    I usually stick to PC games (Shooters, Sims and Strategy Games) but very occasionally venture into the console world for console only stuff like Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid and the like.

    I love the GTA Series and have all of the games on both Playstation and PC.

    This time around however, I pre-ordered GTA V on Xbox with GTA Online in mind, as a few friends of mine were also getting the game for their Xboxes.

    I would love to join the TOG Crew if you guys have room, feel free to add me on XBox Live (Lord_Grax)

    I do have a question though, has the ability to be a member of more than one crew been confirmed?
    One of my mates asked me the other day and I have not been able to find any information about it on DrGoogle and the only thing I have seen about multiple crews is Hastarin's post above.

    Thanks guys!

    See ya on the streets :)

    LG
