We think it's safe to say that Rockstar's latest addition to the Grand Theft Auto gaming franchise has been an unrivalled success. The hype surrounding the release of GTA 5 was at an all time high when the title eventually went on sale last month. The game reportedly cost Rockstar more than $250 million to create, but managed to recoup more than $1 billion in opening weekend sales, which speaks for itself. So how could this year's best game actually get any better? Well, it probably couldn't, but an earlier version could allow gamers to hook up a Google Glass wearable to compliment the experience.
Grand Theft Auto 5 has taken the gaming world by storm, and although we've seen Call of Duty break records on an annual basis in what was becoming a one-horse race, Take Two/ Rockstar's long-awaited title has eclipsed the opening numbers of any previous CoD release. As stores continue to replenish their supplies, the game's creators have begun rolling out the online multiplayer functionality. As you might expect given the scale of the operation, there seem to be a few glitches with the service, but the take-home is that GTA Online is now in motion for both Xbox Live and Sony's PlayStation Network.
Rockstar Games has been steadfast in its releasing of screenshots and teaser trailers for its upcoming Grand Theft Auto 5, and with just a couple of weeks left until the eagerly awaited retail date, the developer-publisher has come through with another bundle of snaps demonstrating some of the sumptuous scenery. Rockstar has already familiarized us with virtually every facet of the game including the characters, missions, weapons, vehicles, and even the GTA 5 online gameplay trailer, but these screenshots simply focus on the two main aspects of every GTA title: Crime and Leisure.
Those Grand Theft Auto fans really know their stuff, especially when it comes to the massive in-game worlds that the titles have revolved around. The most keen fans can reel off the locations of all the cool stuff too, which is impressive considering we can't even find our car keys in our real world homes!
Rockstar Games and their Grand Theft Auto franchise have always managed to split public opinion right down the middle. The game, originally created by David Jones and Mike Daily, has managed to court with controversy ever since the original 2D release back in 1997. With the latest installation of GTA set to hit our shelves later on this year, Rockstar could be forgiven for sitting back and getting their heads down to finalize and polish the game, but instead they have taken the time to release part of the franchise's greatest appeal - the music.
As gamers continue to wait anxiously for the release of Grand Theft Auto 5 after it was delayed from Spring until September, Rockstar Games has sought to keep fans interested by releasing an image of the box art set to grace the cover of the title when it does finally release. Although the game itself should be head and shoulders above previous iterations in terms of visuals and aesthetics, the cover is every bit similar to the ones we're used to seeing from the old PlayStation 2 days. As well as giving us a glimpse of the cover, the publisher / developer also released another batch of GTA V screenshots earlier as a reminder of just how pretty the title is going to be.
If you've been following Rockstar's leaked screenies of Grand Theft Auto V, you'll have noticed just how darned awesome it looks. Gamers have been salivating over the teasing images for months, but with precious little in the way of an ETA, quite a few have grown a little disgruntled.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is just three days away from its tenth anniversary, and in much the same way as it celebrated ten years of Grand Theft Auto III, publisher Rockstar Games will be bringing the iconic title to mobile devices.
Although I personally am not a massive video game fan, I do own an Xbox 360 and a PlayStation 3 that in recent times has really only been used to play two different games on - the Call of Duty offerings and probably my favorite set of games of all time, Grand Theft Auto. I don't mind admitting that I was a little disappointed with the GTA IV release. The visuals and open world mapping was stunning as always, even the storyline of the title was something that I was extremely excited about but when the time came I just found that stepping into Niko Bellic's shoes and being involved in a story line that detracted from the core missions in the game didn't really sit right with me.
