Sony may have just announced that it sold 4.2 million PS4s before the end of 2013, but that doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been the odd issue that gamers have with the new machine coming out of Japan. While it’s clear that they have been buying new PS4s in their droves, gamers have also been vocal about the lack of support for PS3 games on the new console, with backward compatibility falling by the wayside.

GTA Online, after the initial blip at launch, seems to have gone down well with purchasers of Grand Theft Auto 5 on both sides of the PlayStation 3 / Xbox 360 divide. Last week, we brought you the news that GTA 5 Online was going to be getting quite a significant update, and today, Rockstar Games has commenced the process of rolling it out. The highlight here is the new Capture mode, which, as Rockstar describes, is “a GTA twist on classic capture the flag style confrontations,” and if you’ve been looking forward to playing some CTF on GTA, now you can!

Grand Theft Auto 5 has been immensely successful this year, breaking all kinds of Guinness world records related to sales in the process. Despite selling tens of millions of copies, the first few weeks were somewhat hindered by the lack of a fully functional GTA Online from the get-go, and considering that this was one of the main reasons why many went out and purchased the game in the first place, it was a relief to finally see Rockstar iron out the kinks and launch it. Since then, multiplayer has been a joy to behold, and a new update to the fold will be allowing users to create their own deathmatches, races, and generally enjoy heaps more customization with the GTA Online experience.

Although the PlayStation 4’s lack of backwards compatibility threatened to spill over into hysteria, Sony promised that Gaikai, a service recently acquired by the Japanese company, would allow gamers to enjoy PlayStation 3 titles via cloud streaming, and now, it has been revealed that the service will also be launched on the PS3 and PS Vita. Although the Vita had been looking like a bit of a dead horse – particularly given the popularity of mobile gaming via smartphones and tablets – its integration with the often record-breaking PS4 could bring a new lease of life to the handheld, and Gaikai support will certainly do its cause no harm.

Call of Duty has come under scrutiny in recent years, with critics quick to point out that each new version is merely a rehash of the previous, and that Infinity Ward / Activision is simply milking what has certainly become something of a cash cow, and the $1 billion made in 24-hours is there to prove it. But now, as YouTube user satantribal has pointed out, there may be a great deal of truth in this claim, since it looks as though the same cut-scene from Modern Warfare 2 has been reused with the all-new Call of Duty: Ghosts. A side-by-side video clip from both titles has been thrown together by the YouTuber that you can check out below, although it’d be a little cruel on some if we didn’t throw in a customary spoiler alert.

In the 24-hours following the launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts the title has managed to bring in more than $1 billion in revenue through retail sales channels, breaking the record set by Grand Theft Auto 5 for reaching that same number in 3 days. The game’s publisher, Activision, has lifted the lid on first day sales figures in a publicly released press statement and announced that the whopping income has been accumulated through worldwide sales of the title into retail stores.

Microsoft’s Xbox 360 has, for a very long time, dominated the console market sales charts, and although Nintendo’s 3DS may have piped it to top spot in recent times, it has still continued to enjoy one-upmanship over the PlayStation 3 in the home entertainment system bracket; that is, until now. Thanks to the record-breaking success of GTA 5, which, it would seem, nearly every gamer went out to purchase, the PlayStation 3 has leapfrogged its close rival to outsell it for the month of September in the United States.

Although the launch of Grand Theft Auto has been, as recently confirmed by Guinness World Records, an unprecedented success by all accounts, it’s fair to note that Rockstar’s efforts to get GTA 5 Online up and running has been more than a struggle.

Even after a lengthy push-back that saw the initial Spring release wind up being delayed until September, we always knew Grand Theft Auto 5 was going to be a success story. What we were not perhaps aware of, however, was just how successful, and in counting up some of the numbers just a few weeks after the initial launch, we can now say unequivocally that GTA 5 is by far the biggest title to launch on any digital platform. Ever.
