The gift giving season is virtually upon us, and because you worked hard this year, it's okay to treat yourself while you're at it. Heck, it's all but unavoidable with all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals around the bend. That includes the newest generation game consoles -- Microsoft will be on board, as it always is, and Sony just announced a couple of game bundles for its PlayStation 4 system. The first is the Grand Theft Auto V PS4 Black Friday Bundle. It consists of a 500GB PS4 system and a copy of GTA V, along with a digital download voucher for The Last of Us Remastered, all for the system's regular selling price of $400. Bear in mind that Rockstar Games put some effort into differentiating... Read more...
In a couple of weeks, Grand Theft Auto V will be released again for the current generation of consoles, though PC gamers will have to wait a bit longer. However, Rockstar Games is shaking things up by allowing gamers to play the third-person action-adventure game in first person. This marks the first time that a Grand Theft Auto game has officially implemented a first-person mode (there have been mods prior to this for older games). “It’s a very intense, in-your-face experience… literally,” said GTA V animation director Rob Nelson to IGN. “Obviously, we felt like one of the most compelling things you could do to make an experience people have had before feel different...

Back in April, Rockstar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto V would be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. One thing many fans of highly anticipated games look forward to is the beta access. Getting the opportunity to play, test, and provide feedback on the game is one that many enjoy participating in. But, as usual, there are those that try to take advantage of a consumer’s enthusiasm and Rockstar Games is warning fans not to fall for any beta scams. Considering the popularity of GTA V, which was able to generate $800 million in sales within the first 24 hours of release, it is no surprise that scammers would try to capitalize on that success and anticipation of...

Back in July, Lindsay Lohan filed a lawsuit against Grand Theft Auto V developer Rockstar Games. In her lawsuit, the actress claimed that a GTA V character named Lacey Jonas resembled her in looks and shared a similar voice. Now, Lohan has filed a 67-page complaint, an amended version of the original 10-page complaint, against publisher Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games for using her likeness. The complaint features 45 pages of pictorial evidence that includes a picture of one of the game discs that shows a blonde woman wearing a red bikini and making a peace sign that supposedly bears a resemblance to the actress. The complaint states that the publisher “used a look-a-like model... Read more...
Back in June, Rockstar Games confirmed that it was developing Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. Now we know when it is coming out. For those who own the Xbox One or PS4 will be able to purchase GTA V on November 18. Unfortunately for PC gamers, the PC version will not be available until January 27, 2015. The next-gen version of the insanely successful game, which boasted $1 billion in sales within its first three days, has received an upgrade to its visual and technical aspects. It features increased draw distances, higher resolutions, and enhanced weather effects. There will also be new activities, new weapons, new vehicles, more wildlife, heavier traffic,... Read more...
Rockstar Games has issued another patch for Grand Theft Auto Online, the online multiplayer portion of its popular Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) title for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles (be sure to read our review). The latest update fixes over a dozen issues with the game, including one for where the starting point for the tutorial race was not appearing. It also fixes a remaining issue where some people's vehicles or vehicle modifications were disappearing. Rockstar Games blamed the bug on cloud save failures, though after applying the latest patch, it should no longer be an issue, the developer claims. Here's a look at the full list of fixes and feature additions: Fixes numerous issues that... Read more...
The initial roll out of Grand Theft Auto V's online multiplayer mode wasn't as rocky as, say, SimCity's from earlier this year, though several "technical issues" did crop up that prevented players from enjoying the experience on the first day, and even a little while longer. Even though Rockstar Games warned that there would be growing pains, the developer is sympathetic to what gamers had to endure and has decided to reward them handsomely for their patience. How does half a million dollars of in-game currency strike your fancy? That's a lot of loot, and it's exactly what every online player who has played or will play Grand Theft Auto Online this month will receive, starting as early as next... Read more...
Rockstar Games on Friday announced that the latest title update for the online component of Grand Theft Auto V is live for PlayStation 3, while the developer is working to have another patch available for Xbox 360 gamers "as soon as possible today." The second patch is intended to address a "variety of technical difficulties" associated with online play. Gamers eagerly anticipated the launch of GTA Online, though the developer warned last week that the initial rollout might suffer from some "teething problems," and that's turned out to be true. For PS3 gamers, a PlayStation Network issue was limiting the amount of possible concurrent users, thereby preventing most players from accessing GTA Online.... Read more...
Today is a big day for Rockstar Games and its super popular Grand Theft Auto franchise. Grand Theft Auto Online goes live today, marking the first time the franchise will have an online multiplayer component. Hours before the launch, Rockstar Games decided to post several more details about online gameplay and what you can expect. First and foremost, access to GTA Online is free with your copy of Grand Theft Auto V (be sure to read our review of the game). You just need to download a small "Title Update" via PlayStation Network or Xbox Live, which will unlock the online component in the GTA V menu. You'll then be able to jump into GTA Online using the fourth (bottom) slot in your GTA V character... Read more...
Let me state right off the bat that I'm primarily a PC gamer. You might not know it if you set foot in my living room, where you'll find an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii all jockeying for attention in my home theater rack, but outside of sports titles and the occasional party-type game played through the Kinect, I play games on a PC. I bring this up because Grand Theft Auto V isn't yet available for the PC, marking one of the title's few shortcomings in what's otherwise an engaging, open world with a connected storyline that's masterfully woven through the perspective of three playable characters, each with different skill sets and personalities. It's also relevant to understand my... Read more...
Remember how excited you would get as a kid when you ended up at Toys R Us? When you're young, it's a paradise of play things filled with an assortment of toys at every corner. As you grow older, the excitement wanes, though there's still a reason why you might want to visit your local Toys R Us store. There are two printable coupons available, one for 20 percent off regular-priced, sale, and clearance items, and another for 25 percent off the same items when you use your Toys R Us credit card. The answer to your question is "Yes," this includes video games. If you've held out on purchasing Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, now is is the time to pounce. Using the above mentioned... Read more...
For one reason or another, it's fair to say that the majority of people in real life would never cross the moral lines that Rockstar Games presents in Grand Theft Auto V. Some would (and do), but by and large, we're not all running around jacking cars, robbing jewelery stores, trafficking drugs and weapons, beating up random pedestrians, and so forth. But put those elements in a game and what you have is a cash cow. The latest installment in the Grand Theft Auto franchise soared past $1 billion in worldwide retail sales during its first three days of availability, publisher Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. announced. While a little fact checking is in order, Take-Two believes this represents... Read more...
Crime might not pay -- but video games about crime certainly do, particularly when they're the follow-up to one of the biggest franchises in gaming. Grand Theft Auto V -- easily one of the biggest titles left for the Xbox 360 and PS3 -- went on sale today and cleared $800M in revenue in just 24 hours. That's not just a record for Grand Theft Auto, it's a record for Take Two, and possibly for the entire gaming industry. Last year, Activision touted Call of Duty Black Ops II as raking in a record $500M in revenue, but this has blown way past that. Reviews of the game are excellent, with an average Metacritic score of 98 and praise lavished on the degree of detail and visual effects squeezed out... Read more...
Is there a bigger tease in the world than Rockstar Games? Not if you're a PC gamer. Again and again, Rockstar Games gropes the console community right in front of PC players by slow rolling game updates, screenshots, trailers, and other tantalizing tidbits for their platform right up until the launch of whichever Grand Theft Auto title it's working on. This time it was Grand Theft Auto V, one of the biggest releases of 2013, and like previous versions, there's no PC version at the outset. Even though previous games in the series have ended up on the PC, Rockstar has so far refused to acknowledge that a port is in the works. This has perhaps caused a bit of panic among PC gamers who would rather... Read more...
If you haven't soiled your drawers lately, you're not a PC gamer. There's simply been too much to get overly excited about, even if the finished product didn't ultimately live up to expectations (Rage, anyone?). Batman: Arkham City, Battlefield 3, Skyrim, and as of this afternoon, the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto V by Rockstar Games. The fifth installed rolls the GTA franchise back to California where sunshine and palm trees are in oversupply. Check out the official trailer below. The short 1 minute 25 second trailer doesn't reveal too much about the plot or upcoming game, though it's clearly the best looking GTA game to date (no surprise there), and it looks like you might get to control...
