However cheat codes for Sony PlayStation 3 have not been confirmed by the Reddit user yet. 

In related news, delay in the pre-orders of GTA 5 in India agitated the gamers. Flipkart, an online retailer, is said to have delayed the pre-orders by a day. The game can be pre-ordered from Flipkart for ₹2,999 for regular box and ₹3,999 for special edition.

Flipkart addressed the gamers' concern by sending a mail and explaining the delay. "Please note that due to publisher regulations we are not permitted to start shipping before the evening of September 16th and since we are going to ship the preorders from Mumbai, you will receive the game along with the freebies that were a part of your order - GTA Double-Sided Poster, Metallic V Locket and Atomic Blimp DLC within 1-2 business days post shipping, depending on your geographical location," BGR quoted the mail.

Fans also took to Twitter to vent their frustration over the delay and also said that they would never order things from the retailer. "I swear to god, if they delay shipping GTA V, I am not going to order anything from @Flipkart again," stated one of the fan. Flipkart however apologised for the delay through a Facebook post.
