The folder contains all the app's assets, including PNG images
for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC renditions of the GTA V manual. As an example, some
of the files include a mention of a color wheel highlight bar for the Xbox 360,
PS3 and PC (to avoid any legal heat I won't completely type out the name of the
file, but if anyone bothers to look, you'll know what I mean).
What's interesting though is that there is no showing of the PS4 or Xbox One
versions of the game in the app's 4,724 files.
This new information actually leads me to believe that we need to reassess
Rockstar's intent with GTA V: It may not launch simultaneously for PC and
In our other article noting that there was code pointing to a PC and PS4 version
of GTA V, it left many believing that the next-gen version of the game would
launch later on down the road alongside a PC version... but the app's assets
leads me to believe the PC version could arrive a lot sooner than we all think.
Having a PC assets added to the app will make the inclusion of the PC version to
the app a quick hop, skip and a jump on the update front for Rockstar.

Today is a bad day for me, the anniversary of my mom's death. It's been ten
years now, so I've been trying to use that milestone as a way of trying to put
aside some more of the pain over this, and have been pretty successful. Sadly,
however, a friend of ours just lost his mom this week, and we are to go offer
condolences at some sort of pre-funeral gathering today, which is interesting
timing to say the least. Undeterred, we will make the best of this, and I will
still try to use the experience in a positive way. No one needs to feel bad about
this, I'm fine. Just over-sharing as usual.
