As you might recall, the GTA Online Festive Surprise update included special Christmas gifts. These gifts were intended to appear in players’ inventories yesterday, on December 25. However, online Christmas gaming didn’t work out too well this year, thanks to the connectivity issues that shut down both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.
Don’t feel sad about missing out on your GTA Online Christmas gift, however. Rockstar announced today that it is extending the gifts, so you can still get them.
Due to issues with PSN & XBL connectivity, we're extending the GTA Online Festive Surprise Christmas Day inventory gifts for the time being.

Some players are still having trouble connecting, although the issue seems to be resolved for many. We aren’t sure how long this gift extension is, but we hope Rockstar gives everyone enough time to get online. Don’t forget that special New Years activities are still in store as part of the Festive Update, as well.
Did you have plans to play GTA Online yesterday and found yourself unable to? What did you do instead?
