Rockstar Social Club account linking problem

#1SmokingGhostPosted 5/19/2010 7:13:49 PM
Anyone else having problems linking their 360 gamertag to Rockstar Social Club?

I try to do it and it just keeps telling me: "Platform ID required". The hell does that mean? I'm trying to link it from the email that my Gamertag is registered to, so I don't see why it's acting so weird.

I really want that snazzy "Gentleman's Attire" and the bonus challenges, otherwise I'd just say "screw it". Anyone know how to get around this?

I never got the Gentleman's Attire after I connected. :(

I found that as long as you make your account online, and instead of linking through your computer, just sign in in-game and it will link it from there :D Now I have muh Snazzy Suit

I set my account up prior to RDR's release, maybe a week or so ago. I did have problems connecting through the game Tuesday night, but it cleared up Wednesday morning and I got my Gentleman's Attire. Last night, I couldn't redeem the golden guns, but was able to do so this morning.

Only problem I'm having now is that the Social Club site isn't tracking my stats, only my achievements. It's showing as connected when I'm in the game (I see challenges, news, and it identifies my ID)...just won't show my stats.

I can't link my account to my gamertag either on the website. I try just connecting online and it says and error with the servers and try again later.

bump also having "platform id required" issue.

I find the sense in nonsense.

I had the exact same problem with "Platform ID required" error message.
Managed to link my PSN account fine though...
