Some quick thoughts on Grand Theft Auto V for current-gen consoles photo
Some quick thoughts on Grand Theft Auto V for current-gen consoles
by Chris Carter

Grand Theft Auto V was one of my favorite games of last year, mostly due to the insanely fun Heist missions in the campaign, and the detailed sandbox of Los Santos. It suffered from some of the same trappings as every GTA and the online portion left much to be desired, but I had an enjoyable time overall.

Although I received it late, I got a copy of GTA V for the Xbox One early this morning and dug right in. So far, I haven't found any real problems with it.

Hot Hot Heat: Heists are finally coming to GTA Online soon

Rockstar's been notably tardy on its delivery of the much-anticipated heists to Grand Theft Auto Online. In fact, the delay was so great that most players wrote the feature off as a promise that would go unfulfilled. That's n...

GTA Online's Heists are coming 'soon' to all platforms

Arguably the most disappointing aspect of Grand Theft Auto Online was the lack of multiplayer heists. Promised before launch, Rockstar has delayed the heists indefinitely -- they're still not in the game yet. But accordi...

A white line shows the stark contrast between old and new GTA V

Just how different and improved will Grand Theft Auto V look when it hits current consoles later this month? Quite a bit, at least on PlayStation 4. This comparison video does a fantastic job of driving home the detail ...

This is Grand Theft Auto V's new first-person mode

Damn. I'm just now remembering that Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PC on January 27, not November 18 like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ports. IGN has a trailer showing one of the best new features for these re-releases: f...

Returning GTA V players get a lot of exclusive content, like murder mysteries

Rockstar's making sure to take care of its players that are upgrading from PS3/Xbox 360 to PS4, Xbox One, or PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V. Those that want to re-explore what the huge sandbox has to offer will find some n...

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas HD is out today on Xbox 360

If you're a fan of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you might want to pick it up on the Xbox 360 today. It's been reworked for the Xbox 360, upgrading itself from the original Xbox version. The port will run at 720p, and will feature an increased draw distance, as well as Achievements. It's priced at a cool $3.74. Yeah, I'm getting in on this! Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas [Xbox.com]

HD port of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas coming to Xbox 360 on Sunday

Rockstar: There is no GTA V beta

Rockstar thinks that maybe you shouldn't believe everything you read on the Internet. In fact, it's so steadfast in that mindset that it added a page to its site disclosing that those GTA V betas that people are signing ...

GTA V will supposedly take up more space than any other PS4 game to date

It's no secret that PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC titles do a number on HDD space. It seems as if titles regularly clock in at more than 30 GB. But, Grand Theft Auto V is set to be the king of big installs on PS4, at l...

Grand Theft Auto V in first person might be fun

Here's what Grand Theft Auto V looks like on PS4

Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 18, Rockstar Games announced today. But just how much better does it look on the new consoles? This trailer captured via PS4 should give you a pretty good idea. Or maybe it won't.

[Update: Rockstar has confirmed these details alongside of a November 18 release date for PS4 and Xbox One, and a January 27, 2015 date for PC. You'll get $1,000,000 in-game bonus cash if you pre-order, new vehicles are in, and GTA Online will have an increased player count (up to 30).]

According to a leak from an attendee of the GameStop Manager's Conference in Anaheim California, the current-gen rework of Grand Theft Auto V is going to be massive. After seeing 30 minutes of gameplay, the attendee gave us a few details, such as "completely reworked foliage," "insane" draw distance increases including traffic flow and lights that aren't pre-rendered from a distance (like they are on Xbox 360 and PS3), and a completely redone water system.

Animal counts and texture work is reworked, and Rockstar allegedly stated that they wanted to improve animal interaction a la Red Dead Redemption. For all these improvements to really take shape, development was supposedly started before GTA V's release.

New content was briefly mentioned such as a new set of songs and more radio stations -- this was already confirmed previously by an in-game DJ voiceactor who stated that she was going back to the studio to record more voicework.

No release date was given other than "soon." Of course, a lot of this could be pure hype, but it's nice to hear about details like real-time traffic and light effects.
