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 →
Over a month after its release, gamers are still deeply immersed in Grand Theft Auto V, the fastest selling game of all time. Between a lengthy single-player campaign and an extensive, constantly evolving online mode, it’s nearly impossible to experience everything the game has to offer, but Eurogamer has taken a stab at exploring its intricate world with the latest entry in its Digital Foundry series of videos. Eurogamer has put together a time-lapse montage of several locations in the fictional city of Los Santos, full of cars, lights, weather and people, all moving naturally through the world as the hours fly by. GTA V is only the latest of Rockstar’s games to be subjected to the time-lapse treatment — Red Dead Redemption and L.A. Noire have also appeared in the series. Check out the full video below. More →
Last month Rockstar set the gaming world — and lots of virtual police cars — on fire with the release of Grand Theft Auto V, the game that made $1 billion in a weekend. USA Today shared the NPD Group’s video game sales report for September on Friday and revealed that after months of subpar results, overall retail sales were up 27% from August. These improved sales were mostly thanks to GTA V, which accounted for more than half of all game sales revenues on the month. “Grand Theft Auto represented over 50% of dollar sales in September, and had the highest first month sales than any other previous launch in the Grand Theft Auto franchise,” said NPD analyst Liam Callahan.

Millions of gamers have snatched up copies of Grand Theft Auto V since its release last month — enough to break seven world records, in fact — but many vocal PC gaming purists are holding out for a PC version of the wildly popular new title. Rockstar took several months to put out a PC version of GTA IV, and despite continuously reaffirming that there are no current plans to bring GTA V to the PC, multiple sources have informed Eurogamer that the $1 billion game will make its way to the computer “in the first quarter of 2014.” More →
