Yesterday saw the launch of the online option of Grand Theft Auto 5. The video game is famous for its massive open world where you can literally do whatever you want; whether it’s going to the gym, robbing a bank or stealing and driving a tank from the army. A new ‘mode’, the online aspect is another bow to the already successful series. However, hundreds and thousands of fans were left disappointed yesterday with many facing error messages, screen freeze and slow loading times when they tried to play it online.
On Wednesday, both Ian and I went to the eCommerce Expo in Manchester. Held down the road from our office at Manchester Central (or the GMex to the locals), the event was for anyone involved in online retail and covered a number of areas such as; digital & mobile marketing, ecommerce & mcommerce, payment & security as well as fulfilment, delivery & retention.
