Grand Theft Auto 5's PSN preload event has been brought forward to Sunday, September 15, Rockstar has announced.

The announcement follows news earlier today that the preload had been pushed back to Monday after originally being expected to be available today. Understandably the news upset some fans.

But instead, the preload will now be available from 3pm BST this Sunday to all PlayStation 3 players who pre-purchased the game via the European PlayStation Network.

North American PS3 owners will be able to preload the game from 3am EST on Monday.

GTA 5 launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Tuesday, September 17. Head back to next Monday, September 16 at 3pm BST for our full review.
