GTA5 Gold; Rockstar Addresses Leak

The Rockstar Games website has a statement (oddly in the form of a comment to another post) announcing Grand Theft Auto V is gold for its console release, also confirming the legitimacy of the leak of details, apologizing for the spoilers which have ensued (thanks GameInformer). Here's word:

We’re pleased to confirm that Grand Theft Auto V has officially gone gold and we’re now preparing the game for release on September 17th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Unfortunately, as many of you may already know, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTAV assets leading to leaked information and media from the game appearing online. You can read Sony’s statement on this here: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/08/24/grand-theft-auto-v-update/. As you can imagine, we are deeply disappointed by leaks and spoilers being spread in advance of the game's launch. GTAV represents years of hard work by many people across the world, and we all couldn't be more excited to finally share it with you properly this September 17th. Please stay tuned here at the Rockstar Newswire for all announcements about GTAV between now and game release as we definitely still have more to officially reveal.

As a specific note to our Social Club community, please remember Rule #1 right above the Comment Box. Please do not proliferate such things here as we certainly don’t want any misinformation spread from things that are fake nor do we want spoilers spread regarding anything that might be true. Anyone engaging in such discussion here at the Rockstar Newswire before September 17th will have commenting privileges revoked until well after the game’s release. Thank you all for your understanding and your support.

Yet its one of the most popular news posts (going by popular thread list on the left). Thats probably why its posted on bluesnews.

It's posted on Blue's because it's a popular post on Blue's? I get your point but the way you state it is hilariously circular.
Yes but in reality it is kinda a circular feedback loop. The subject matter (GTA 5) is popular (even among PC gamers) so he posts news on it, and that probably increases the interest, meaning he will post more on it.

No doubt this will soon be a GTA themed web-site. Or not.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

Beamer, is it just me or did you just passionately complain about a game you never played?

Oh, I meant SA. Though it should have been obvious because most of what I complained about was new in that one.

VC I didn't play. GTA3 I played a crapton of on PC. SA I played on PS2 until the point where they do that stupid taking-everything-you've-earned-from-you thing. And GTA4 I did maybe an hour in SP and hated it, then another 2 hours in multiplayer which was fun as a novelty but kind of pointless.

San Andreas was universally reviled as the worst of the bunch and for many good reasons. No, the best of the series was still Vice City. GTA4 would be after that.

Are you sure? Most the people I've seen have it the other way around and say San Andreas was their favorite and Vice City the worst.



Only the console kiddy wigga gangstas were 'down' with San Andreas. And that's all that was. So yeah, if you were a 14 year old wigga I'm sure it was pretty sweet.


So, that makes you an over-the-hill yayo freak, ecstatic to vicariously re-live the neon glory of the olden days?

An unbiased comparison puts San Andreas head-and-shoulders above Vice City in almost every facet of gameplay, up to and including small but important details akin to the aforementioned car stopping. Such as being able to... SWIM!

It's fine to express your dislike of the setting or story, but it's ludicrous to project that into some warped sense of reality where everyone else hated it, too. The fact is SA sold 10+ million more copies than VC, and the average review scores are virtually identical (both are slightly lower than III and IV).

It's cutter, he tends to invent his own reality as he goes along even if no one else agrees with him.

Where I'm from tapping triangle means much more than repeatedly pressing a button on a gamepad.

San Andreas is my favourite of the GTA's by far. The large world, freedom and amount of activities to do was insane.

And I loved CJ's story.

I just love me some wigga simulator!

Come on Verno don't be ridiculous. 1992 California gangster culture is for wannabe thugs and imbeciles. 1986 Florida gangster culture is for discerning gentlemen.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
