GTA Online is fun, but its roll-out hasn't exactly been smooth. A new title update remedies some of the biggest problems – like loss of progress and infinite loading – and is currently available for PS3 users. Xbox 360 users can expect the fix "tomorrow at the latest."

While it doesn't fix every complaint players have had with GTA Online, it should drastically cut down on the issues. Here's the list of fixes straight from Rockstar:

  • Fixes multiple issues causing character deletion or other loss of progress
  • Fixes issues causing infinite loading, infinite sky cams, and missing interface options between jobs
  • Fixes an issue causing the "replay" option to be locked out on certain jobs
  • Fixes an issue where a player would become stuck in the mod garage when respraying a Sanchez motor bike
  • Fixes an issue where the Player became stuck inside Los Santos Customs during Online tutorial flow. 
  • Fixes an issue causing the loss of guns and ammo
  • Fixes issues causing GTA races ending early because of players spawning too far ahead
  • Fixes issues in Last Team Standing where sessions would not progress past the lobby
  • Fixes issues with network errors when joining Last Team Standing using Quick Job
  • Added clarifications around when a player is using a temporary character in GTA Online during Rockstar Cloud server outages
  • Adjusts the monetary penalty for being killed in a One on One match

Our Take
Obviously, this would have been nice to have sooner, but Rockstar acted quickly to rectify some of the most egregious issues that were surfacing in GTA V. For a game with so much ambition and such a massive scope, a few hiccups are to be expected. Of course, given the game's broad and enthusiastic fan base, no significant problem is likely to go unreported.
