Over the past few weeks we’ve all been amazed at the massive improvement in graphics that Rockstar has shoved into their Xbox One and PS4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V and the early videos and screenshots showed a near parity between the Xbox One version and the PS4, however it’s not true.
Those who’ve moved on from this physical media nonsense and who’ve got bandwidth to burn can, as of this weekend, pre-load the digital version of GTA V on the PlayStation 4. Unfortunately, as many noticed, there seems to be a few problems with the pre-load.
One of the features that drew me to GTA V’s online component was the promise of Online heists, where a group of players can work co-operatively to break in to places and rob them blind. A year on from the game’s original release and that particular feature still isn’t in the game. Rockstar has finally given us an indication of when they’ll be coming.
Confession time: I never finished Grand Theft Auto V. In fact, I don't think I've ever played a GTA title to completion. Somewhere along the line I get really bored - although I do think I should give Los Santos one more shot. And judging by the launch trailer, it's going to look prettier than ever.
We all know that GTA V is going to look prettier than a gift-wrapped Ferrari under your Christmas tree. After all, I’d be disappointed if the game wasn’t fielding some shinier tech when it launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. But how pretty does it actually look then?
The biggest challenge that GTA V has right now, is that it may have been far too successful last year. It sold many millions, making for some very happy shareholders over at Take Two and Rockstar. Fast forward a year or so, and we have a shinier version on the way. But the problem is, is that just about everyone has played the game by now. So how do you sell it twice? By looking at GTA V through another perspective.
GTA V is coming to Sony and Microsoft’s new systems next month, with more than just a dash of next-gen polish. It’s also coming with a wealth of brand new content. As a thank you you to those who double dip – or perhaps as a way to extort players in to double dipping – much of that content will only be available to players who’ve bought the game anew.
San Andreas is still a pretty big deal to most Grand Theft Auto fans. It's the ten year anniversary of the PS2 classic this year, prompting Rockstar to re-release the game on Xbox 360. Higher resolution, larger draw distance and a few other features have been added, but how much of a difference do they actually make?
Guys. Stay away from drugs. They will ruin your life. Not only will they break your brain, but they can also be expensive. That’s obviously the real reason Lindsey Lohan is so intent on suing GTA V maker Rockstar; she’s run out of her allotted crack budget.
Around this time last year nearly everyone everywhere was busy playing Grand Theft Auto V. Since then, Rockstar has been working very hard to get the game looking brand new on current-gen consoles, with the remastered GTA V launching in little over a month. Or, if you're on PS4, even sooner.
Because replaying GTA V through the demented mindscape of Trevor with shinier graphics sounds like an insanely fun idea to me, I will choose to believe one quickly retracted Rockstar post.
As we already know, GTA V is being remastered for the new gen consoles and finally coming in November. PC gamers, however, get to wait a few extra months before they too come to be annoyed by Trevor and his recklessness, and the overbearing repetition of the N word. Why must they wait so long? Rockstar has the answers.
We’re still waiting on Rockstar to give the world a definite release date for its remastered, next-genified version of GTA V. That may be coming soon, because apparently Take 2 has been showing the thing off to retailers and one of them – a Gamestop Manager – spilled a bunch of details to neoGAF.
I've never been the biggest fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, although even I have to admit that GTA V was pretty darn great. Having three protagonists really helped keep things entertaining, especially since all three where great characters with their own quirks. Yes, let's just call Trevor's behaviour a quirk for now.
You’re cruising around San Andreas, running over pedestrians and ignoring the red lights at the robots, and you’re thinking to yourself ‘something is missing’. And then you realise, while wiping blood off of your hood ornament by ramming it through a car wash, that you haven’t got the radio on. And for some strange reason, listening to Baker Street while running down some nuns just feels right. Expect more of those good vibes, my troubled friends, when GTA V updates your favourite stations.
