We've gotten reports from several of you that the Rockstar Social Club, the company's online hub for leaderboards and stat tracking, is down for the count. Though we haven't been able to access it, Rockstar PR tells us that the site was up earlier in the day. Apparently a few people have been trying to log on. We can't imagine why.

This sounds like we're all gonna need persistence or patience if we want to join the club today. Luckily, we imagine that several of you have a certain new game filled with certain new hookers to beat and certain new innocents to indiscriminately kill to help you pass the time.

[Update: All's well now.]
