As revealed in a previous leak, GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One will be available on November 18th, 2014, but the PC release has slipped to January 27th, 2015. Rockstar has also outlined some of the visual and technical enhancements that the new versions of the game will feature. More →
Now that we know for sure that Grand Theft Auto V is still on track to be released for the PS4, Xbox One and PC this fall, all that’s left for Rockstar Games to announce is the release date. There have been a few hints about the exact date the game would be released in the past, but after several online retailers temporarily listed the same date this week, the puzzle pieces are beginning to fall into place.

One of the most anticipated next-gen titles of the holiday season is already out… but just not on the platforms we want it. Rockstar Games announced at E3 2014 that Grand Theft Auto V would be making the transition to the PS4, Xbox One and PC this fall, but three months later, we haven’t heard or seen any new signs of the highly anticipated port. Rumors began to spread that GTA V might be delayed, but Rockstar wants to ensure fans that the game is still on track. More →
A PC release for Grand Theft Auto V has been a long time coming, but all we’ve had since the announcement at E3 2014 is a vague “coming this fall” in place of an actual date. One blundering retailer might have finally let the official date slip though, as PC Gamer noted on Monday. According to a listing on a Danish retailer’s website, Grand Theft Auto V for PC is expected to release on November 14th in Europe. More →
If you were holding off on buying Grand Theft Auto V until it got a steep price cut, then now’s your time to act — literally, right now, or at least before the end of the day. Xbox Live programming director Larry Hryb informs us that Grand Theft Auto V will be 50% off until the end of the day on Friday as part of a one-day sale that includes several other great Xbox 360 games. In addition to GTA 5, you can also get 58% off Need for Speed Rivals, 70% off Crysis 3, 60% off Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, 83% off Ninja Gaiden 2 and 75% off Bastion. Rockstar’s smash-hit game is definitely the crown jewel in the sale, however, especially now that Lindsay Lohan has sued the game’s developers for creating a despicable character that she says is exactly like her.
Rumors of a next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto V have been swirling since before the game even released, but now that Rockstar Games has made the port official, what exactly are we hoping to see? Prima Games has put together a list of additions and upgrades we can expect in GTA V when it lands on the PS4, Xbox One and PC this fall. More →
Actress Lindsay Lohan on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against Take-Two Interactive, makers of Grand Theft Auto V and other games in the wildly popular Grand Theft Auto franchise.

Have you ever wanted to see the seedy world of Grand Theft Auto V through your own eyes? Well a new mod that’s being shown off by YouTube user XBLToothPik does the next-best thing for you by letting you play the game as a first-person shooter. Where the game really gets cool, however, is when you break into a car or a plane and see the entire thing in first person. XBLToothPik apparently created the mod using a modified Xbox 360, which means that the average gamer won’t be able to use it. However, when GTA V comes out for PC this fall, we expect that PC gamers will be able to use this mod or something like it. Be sure to check out both videos below. More →
Grand Theft Auto 5 was a terrific looking game when it came out last year but apparently we haven’t seen anything yet. We learned last week that Rockstar will be releasing a refreshed version of its latest smash-hit game for the PlayStation 4 this fall and a new video that popped up on YouTube Monday shows us just how much better the game will look on the new console. The trailer shows several different environments in and around the fictional city of Los Santos and they show vastly improved textures, animations and overall details than the version we’ve seen on the PS3. Be sure to check out the full video, which shows both versions of GTA 5 side by side, below. More →
Reporting results for fiscal year 2014 on Tuesday, Take-Two Interactive revealed that the enormously popular Grand Theft Auto V has now shipped over 33 million copies. Rockstar’s latest title, which accounted for over half of all game software sales in the month it launched, has generated well over $1 billion for Take-Two, contributing heavily to one of the most successful years in the publisher’s history.

Rumors of next-gen and PC releases for the best-selling Grand Theft Auto V have been floating around since long before the game even launched, but after months of silence from Rockstar, most of us had given up hope for an announcement anytime soon. It’s not much to go on, but considering how long it’s been since the gossip died down, we figured this potential leak was worth covering. TECH-NICK, manager of German retailer Saturn.de, said in a tweet that the release of GTA V for PC, Xbox One and PS4 is expected in June. He clarified in another tweet that the release information is only a rumor. Hopefully we’ll hear more at E3, which also happens to take place in June.
The wildly popular Grand Theft Auto V may soon launch on Windows, as the PC version of game has been spotted in various online stores in Europe, including Amazon Germany and Amazon France, CNET U.K. reports. The Amazon Germany online listing is still available, revealing the game will cost €59.99, and will work with Windows 7 and Vista machines – strangely Windows 8 is not listed, and a launch date is not available. However, GameHolds also has GTA V for PC on pre-order, offering a €48.89 shop price instead of the €59.99 “regular price,” and a March 31st launch date. More →
Thanks to a few huge fall releases, video game sales managed to improve year-over-year once again in October, according to the latest numbers sent to us by the NDP Group. This makes for the third month of positive growth for the industry, an estimated $1.3 billion in total consumer spending that signifies a 5% jump over October 2012. The Nintendo 3DS led the hardware segment for the sixth consecutive month, in part due to 2DS sales, although overall hardware sales were down 8% from last year. With the launch of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One this month, hardware sales should see a major surge in November, but for now, Nintendo still has the best-selling console on the market. More →
