I had this for my pre order Destiny Vanguard Armory DLC. When the game actually came out I was able to download just fine. The game still downloads, correct?

Here is a little thing that I did.
Before the download was available my timer turned in to a price £54.99.
I went to library and then games and gta was still there with a timer, so I clicked the timer and selected the auto downloads. It's how I did it, sorry if it doesn't help you but mine has just installed.

Is the game downloading fine? Pre order DLC is usually pretty shoddy pre launch but usually is fine when the game launches.

downloading the game no issues (UK). couldn't download the add-on though. not too bothered right now as long as the game itself is downloading!

Just download the damn game. Don't worry about add on now. I have downloaded 18 GB preload already. Update file and game were pushed to my ps4 as soon as I turned it on. If you are not able to download game as well, login to psn store website, click on download list and you will see GTA V game there. Push it to download queue and it will start downloading on PSN.

It's not a GTA thing, it's always like that, you can't preload DLC. Download it again day 1.

Saw someone else with this problem on another site. Go to the webstore and click on the download list. It should say "waiting". Click on cancel and then select "download to PS4". Can't guarantee it will work, but someone else said it did.

I didn't even know you could preload it. There is no clear communication from Sony, contrary to Microsoft (and even Nintendo since Smash Bros Wii U). So as for me the game is okay to DL (France), the pre-order cash thing not yet.

Solid question. Did you buy it from a different store OP?

Definatly NZ store and ive been billed etc.
And yeah the error returns some people having same issues with PES Soccer but the Sony community pages are not exactly user friendly.

17GB left for me. Downloading for more than 8hrs with fluctuating speeds, temporary pauses where nothing will download then sometimes it will be ok, then goes at a crawl.

This will be the last time I will download a game off PSN until they fix what they screwed up with 2.00.

It downloaded for me, but not the pre order bonus. I guess that downloads when the game is out.

Though funnily enough, my download section listed the game at just over 600MB, and it downloaded in a matter of 20 minutes. I checked my system storage and all 44.9GB were there. Weird. :/

I wonder if it suffers from the same streaming issues the PS3/360 versions have where the disc version drew in content sooner than the download version because it was drawing content from both the disc and the HDD?

It won't, because all games on PS4 and XB1 install content and run entirely from the HDD.

Does the cash bonus in any way "break" the main game?

Makes it to easy etc?

I'd say no. Sure, you can buy more stuff(cars or whatever) than you normally could. But I never had a problem in the main game where I had too little cash to buy the weapons and ammo I wanted or needed for a mission-

No. You will be able to buy a car but you still have to win races to unlock the upgrades so basically you will only have the stock car you can choose from at the beginning anyway
