Ever since Grand Theft Auto V’s initial release back in September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, PC gamers have been eagerly waiting for Rockstar Games to bring title to the PC. 18 months later, and the long-awaited game has finally been released. Unfortunately, while Rockstar Games is known for releasing some top-notch titles, its track record with porting its games to PC hasn’t been stellar. When Grand Theft Auto IV came out for the PC platform back in 2008, about eight months after the console version, it was criticized as a poor port at the time. Suffering from performance issues...

You may recall that we gave Grand Theft Auto V an Editor's Choice award when we reviewed it for the Xbox 360 nearly a year and a half ago. We've been anxiously waiting for it to arrive on Windows ever since, and were stoked when Rockstar Games said it would release to PC in January 2015. Ah, but it wasn't meant to be, as January turned into March 24, which has now turned into April 14. Yes, GTA V for PC is delayed again, though this time it's by less than a month. Whether it will be worth the long wait remains to be seen, and we're cautiously optimistic it will be, considering the graphical upgrades... Read more...
The Grand Theft Auto franchise is still making Take-Two Interactive bookoo bucks, with the latest installment -- Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) -- having now sold more than 45 million units on console, including 10 million on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game has yet to launch for PC -- it was originally supposed to debut on Windows on January 27, 2015, but was delayed until March 24. Sales of GTA V contributed to $531.1 million in revenue for Take-Two's fiscal third quarter ended December 31, 2014, on a GAAP basis, along with net income of $40.1 million, or $0.42 per diluted share. On a non-GAAP... Read more...
Ever wondered what would happen if a group of senior citizens sat down for a spell to play Grand Theft Auto V? Wonder know more, because the folks who run the REACT channel on YouTube did exactly that, though instead of throwing their controllers down in disgust over the in-game violence and various illegal activities, they enjoyed themselves. Immensely. Each senior citizen was given 30 minutes of play time in GTA V's open world. They weren't given any information other than basic controls. Other than that, it was up to them to explore the environment and play the game however they wish. Early... Read more...
Well, who didn’t see this one coming? Delays for highly anticipated video games are nothing new, so you shouldn’t be too surprised to hear that Rockstar Games has delayed the release of Grand Theft Auto V for the PC. The game was originally set to debut on January 27, but that date has now been pushed back until March 24. “Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be,” said Rockstar in a posting on its website earlier this morning. “Moving a release date is never a decision we take lightly and is a choice...

Rockstar Games is gearing up to release Grand Theft Auto V to PlayStation 4 and XBox One systems tomorrow (November 18, 2014), both of which will benefit from immediate patches. The size of the Xbox One patch hasn't yet been confirmed, though if you're rocking a PS4 console, be prepared to download a 1.14GB update if you want the best experience. The size of the patch became public knowledge after GTA V was made available to pre-load over the weekend. If you're planning to play the game tomorrow, pre-loading isn't a bad idea, especially if your Internet connection isn't all that fast to begin with.... 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...

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,... Read more...

In her lawsuit, the actress claimed that a GTA V character named Lacey Jonas resembled her in looks and shared a similar voice.

One of these days, we're going to post an article declaring that Grand Theft Auto V is finally available for PC. Unfortunately today is not that day. However, Rockstar Games isn't just sitting around idle -- we've seen a handful of game patches released in the last few months, and there's yet another available that adds some new items and fixes a bunch of bugs. GTAV title update 1.11 adds new clothing to the clothes store, new tattoo options, four new hairstyles (two male and two female), some new masks, green and purple tire smoke colors, new vehicles (Grotti Turismo R, Dinka Jester, Albany Alpha,...

When it comes to waiting for ports, mobile gamers sometimes have it worse than the PC crowd. How so? Consider that while PC gamers are chomping at the bit (or "champing," if you want to avoid a citation from the grammar police) to play Grand Theft Auto V on their platform of choice, mobile gamers are still waiting for GTA: San Andreas. Well, good news mobile users, your wait has almost come to an end. Rockstar Games today announced that San Andreas is headed to mobile devices next month. There aren't any screenshots to gawk at just yet, though Rockstar did say the mobile version will look better... Read more...
Forget about all the patches and updates Rockstar Games has rolled out to date in order to get Grand Theft Auto Online up to snuff. The first real update -- one that's not intended to fix broken content, but introduce new gameplay -- is scheduled to arrive next week on Tuesday, November 19th, the developer announced. It's called Beach Bum and it will be automatically added to GTA Online through its next title update (version 1.06). Beach Bum will introduce a pair of new weapons to play with, including the compact (yet deadly) SNS Pistol and, for you street brawlers, a Broken Bottle for melee combat.... Read more...
