I was taken aback when I found that I could not save ANY progress in single player mode without signing up for Windows Live. It says that these "services", such as Live and the Social Club, are only required for multiplayer mode. They lie on the box and again during the install.
It is only after you wade through their registration requests, the insistence upon registration requests, refusal to even load the game until you update windows live, you finally get to playing.
Then it tells you you cannot save any progress unless you sign-in to windows live. What a shaft job.
I called Take2games and they confirm that you cannot save unless you sign-in.
What a let down. I have uninstalled the game and am now working on a refund. lol.
I have played every GTA so far, mostly on PC. I have GTAIV on the PS3 and was looking forward to playing on the PC with great graphics.
I do not like a company who seems like a spyware vendor out to capture my machine.
