As stores continue to replenish their supplies, the game’s creators have begun rolling out the online multiplayer functionality. As you might expect given the scale of the operation, there seem to be a few glitches with the service, but the take-home is that GTA Online is now in motion for both Xbox Live and Sony’s PlayStation Network.

As well as giving us a glimpse of the cover, the publisher / developer also released another batch of GTA V screenshots earlier as a reminder of just how pretty the title is going to be.
