    They probably won't have a problem. Preloading has been live all week.

    Doesnt impact anything, the major server load is usually from the game download, everyone that preordered it should have managed to download it by now, even I've managed it.

    Still going. Ignore Steam's fantastical peak download rate.

    Just the UK's amazing communications infrastructure where all the cables outside of a medium-sized town are just rats with SD cards in their collar walking down a plastic drainpipe.

    Their connection is way faster than dialup.

    only about 4 times faster

    although that is steams effective download speed which is in my experience sub 30% of your actual bandwidth (yes actual, not the ISP rated figure, steam just seems to suck at using what its given).

    My Steam uses even more than my ISP provides.

    I'm with the other guys. ISP says I get 50Mb/s down, speedtests all say ~55Mb/s down, Steam gives between 6.2 and 6.8MB/s down depending on what else is using the network.

    What website did you preorder from, or didn't you preorder at all?

    Also, I can't wait to see graphics comparisons of low vs high settings. I want to see if GTA V still manages to look stunning on my craptastic PC.

    A guy I know preordered the game for me because I don't have a credit card. And since it's Easter the banks aren't working right now so I have to wait until 14 to transfer him the money and he will send me the code. I also hope there will be less traffic on R* servers on 14. At least the good side is that I picked it up on a bargain, it's activated via Social Club but who cares anyway.

    It has taken too long to download this x_x
    I've been out of the loop for a while when it comes to gaming news; will there be any player hosted server options available? I'm talking dedicated, not co-op.

    Don't forget you still have to decrypt the install files which depending on your setup could take from around 5-10 minutes to over an hour.

    only for steam users, the retail and rockstar warehouse versions aren't encrypted in the first place

    But they have a 5GB download on top of the (albeit smaller) 58MB day one patch.

    Pre-loading is from the steam servers, not Rockstar...
