Turns out that some of those who downloaded the digital pre-order were able to access some Grand Theft Auto 5 features. Instead of being cool and enjoying the surprise, the lucky few posted them online resulting in the shut down.

Regrettably, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTA V assets. These assets were posted online. We have since removed the digital pre-order file from the PlayStation Store in Europe. We sincerely apologize to Rockstar and GTA fans across the world who were exposed to the spoiler content. GTA V is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year with a very passionate following, and we’re looking forward to a historic launch on September 17.

Friday, Grand Theft Auto 5‘s soundtrack was leaked from the pre-ordered files from both Sony and Microsoft’s online stores. Hopefully the game will be put back on the pre-order market as soon as all of this has been taken care of.

Do you think that taking the game of the pre-order market was a good idea? Where do you see the sales going from here? I would love to see your thoughts.
