I haven't got the game yet but this sounds very omoinous... and I think I know the reason why this is happening. If any of you had purchased CALL OF DUTY 4 you may have come across the same problems? This is because the gaming server was run by GAMESPY. People who had broadband via Tsicali (and other sub companies, Toucan Broadband, etc...) could only access the server during the day (or mainly outside of the hours of 4pm until midnight) becuase the broadband provider did not allow P2P traffic (Gamespy use P2P on their servers for gameplay) between these hours.
They sorted the Call Of Duty issue on my ISP (Toucan) so I'm hoping I won't have the same problems with GTA IV. I'm pretty sure this is the issue though seeing as it is GameSpy once again who are the hosts.
If you do some google searches for Tiscali and Call of Duty 4 you'll be able to read up on some of the issues.

I think it's just due to the volume of people trying to access it. I actually played COD4 last night, and it took ages to get enough people to get a game started. Obviously not many people online with COD4, so what could they all possibly be doing....GTA IV, me thinks!!
