GTA V’s got some pre-loading problems on PS4

2 min read


Those who’ve moved on from this physical media nonsense and who’ve got bandwidth to burn can, as of this weekend, pre-load the digital version of GTA V on the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, as many noticed, there seems to be a few problems with the pre-load.

A handful of players on both NeoGAF and reddit have reported having issues with the preload, with many of them facing  CE-37700-7  or CE-36249-4 errors instead of a functional download. While neither Sony or Rockstar have a comment on the problem or a fix for the issue, some have been able to get past it all by doing the following, incredibly logical thing; forcing it to download.

  • Go to your game Library on your PS4.
  • Select Grand Theft Auto V
  • Click on the download button.

The game is set to launch tomorrow, so if you’re suffering from this pre-load problem, it’s unlikely that you’ll finish the 50GB download soon anyway. This is one of those situations where I’d be very much in favour of a physical copy – especially given that there’s another 1GB day one patch for you to download before you can play it the way it’s meant t be played. Like most games on the local PSN, it’s available digitally for more than the retail versions. R899 will get you the digital version of the game in about a week when it finishes download, or you can pick it up from a retailer like Takealot, AWX or Kalahari for less.

It’s out tomorrow, competing with Far Cry 4 for shelf space and gamers’ hearts.  Which will you be getting?
