  3. I can't receive mail from the post office, and no newspapers. Any help?

I’m currently on my third playthrough of the game. The first two playthroughs were completely fine, and I had no issues. This third one, however? I’ve been running into some problems. Namely, the two issues I mentioned in the title.

The mail thing is just odd to me. I’m on Chapter 4, and I’ve already turned in the 22 bones that Arthur can find, the 10 rock carvings, 10 of the fish for Jeremy Gill, and I just beat the story mission where you go to the mayor’s mansion and steal the files from his office. After that, you’re supposed to get the letter from the mayor, asking for your services. I noticed the symbol over the mail station, so I went to it. As soon as I got there, the mark went away, and I was unable to receive anything. Anybody know a fix do this? Judging from what I’ve researched, sending a support ticket to Rockstar hasn’t done a damn thing for anybody.

And as for the newspaper issue, it’s just wonky. On my first two playthroughs, the newspaper boy was always there, and I could buy any issue as soon as it released, or any older ones that I missed. On this playthrough, though, it only lets me buy the current issue, and then the vendor disappears. What the hell is going on with this?

I’m on Xbox One by the way, if that’s any useful.
There is nothing here.

Well this is the PS4 Board ....so you being on Xbox......is really of no use to us

That being said

I'm super sorry to hear that you're dealing with this.

I'm on the Xbox One X.

I am on my second playthrough.

The first one, I only made it to chapter 4.

You're right. Sending trouble tickets is a waste of time. Rockstar tech support is a bunch of worthless idiots.

I really hope you get this figured out, as I am worried that I will encounter this in my game.

I'm bookmarking this thread to keep checking back to see if you've gotten any answers.

By the way, when you started this CURRENT playthrough that you're on, did you begin playing with the most recent patch at the start of your game?

I'm on xbox and post here cause it's the most active board and so do many others

I haven't run in to this issue in any of my playthroughs, TC

this is a long game and it would suck to have to start over, hopefully it works its way out

I see the point of his comment. Maybe it’s an Xbox problem. Not as PS4 problem? Something wrong with the system

That would be my conclusion as well. I don’t know why everyone takes things so personal.
