GTA V Digital Realease Day 1?

I've been looking for some evidence whether or not it's happening or not. I just recently was playing some GOW3 on my original 360 and it stopped with an error saying disc unreadable while I was playing and I had just repaired my system myself a few months earlier and that's never happened before. I've repaired my xbox multiple times and it has finally given out on me. So with this amazing game on the way and my finacials screwed I was hoping for a day one release digital since that's the only way I can play it now. If you have any news on this I would really appreciate it thanks guys!

Can't see that happening, I don't recall a retail game getting a digital version on the same day as the physical game hit stores, but I believe Payday 2 is coming to the Marketplace alongside the disc version, so I could be wrong.

I think if it was happening, you'd have already heard about it by now.

I am under the impression that there will be games available on Xbox LIVE the same day it becomes available at retail. Just not sure if this will apply to the Xbox 360 or Xbox One. Hopefully the former.

Pretty sure I recall from the original Xbox One announcement games would release digitally at the same time as physically on the new console. Not sure if that was changed following the 24hr sign into live turnaround tho. I hope this is still the same, as I purposely haven't pre-ordered any games as I wanted to try and stay digital (mainly because I'm lazy and want the ease of not swapping discs).

I hope it will remain the same because no disc is less stress on the hardware and more efficient than swapping disc everytime you want to play another game and since comfortability is what they're preaching for x1 that should be a necessity.

While I can't answer the OP's question, as nothing has been officially announced, I'm still curious how they are going to handle pre-order bonuses in regards to digital copies. When it comes to the One I would prefer to download all of my games, but I'm hesitant to do so when all of these games has some form of DLC that I will receive if I pre-order it.

Wasn't the Day-1 digital release one of the features of the XBone?

The same way Steam and PlayStation do it on their Day 1 digital releases.

While it would be nice, I have my Collector's Edition paid off, and I would rather pick it up at midnight than wait until they update XBL and put it on as a digital download the day of release.

Which is how? I don't have either of those, so have zero clue about them.

If microsoft were smart they would release this as GOD...aka games on demand... the day its out. This game is already going to sell like call of duty. Make even more money by putting it on god games.

Sony is doing it, but that may be an exclusive deal between them and Rockstar. It also includes pre-order bonuses, which may be a good sign of things to come.

The PS3 will be getting a day one release, as you can pre-order it now and receive the same bonuses as when you pre-order the physical copy. You also receive a 75% off voucher for any Rockstar title.

Xbox won't be getting a day one release, as Rockstar has said that Microsoft do not allow pre-orders of digital content, and the game will be made available as soon as Microsoft puts it up.

EDIT: Ninja'd.

EDIT2, days later: Holy fuck, how many errors did I make?!

Sigh... I support Microsoft but their policies really hinder some seriously important gaming experiences. I don't own a ps3 only because I don't care for tge controller or servers. I hope this is definitely changing on the X1 because I prefer consiles but if im restricted once more on the New Gen i'll just go grab a PC instead. Sorry for the off topic but it's annoying when you support a console for so long and they restrict your experience like a child.

MS has some of the dumbest policies..

I understand that that they may not be able to offer pre orders of the game like Sony does with the PS3..

But they can surely up the game to their servers and have it available on launch day for everyone to buy who wants a digital copy..
