Snap Saturday: 8 Years of GTA V

Welcome to Snap Saturday, GTANet’s ode to the virtual photography community who continue to capture some amazingly creative shots across GTA and Red Dead. Grand Theft Auto V reached its 8th anniversary yesterday! From the first teaser in 2011, to the marketing period (and information droughts!) in 2012, to its absolutely explosive release in September 2013, that even brought good chunks

Analyst: PS3 caused GTA IV delay

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter believes that Rockstar has delayed the release of Grand Theft Auto IV because it is struggling with development on the PlayStation 3. And since it’s likely that Rockstar had an agreement with Sony not to favour one console over the other, it means they can’t release one version and delay the other. “We think it

PS3 Not Enough for GTA IV

Sony’s Phil Harrison has responded to concerns that the PS3 doesn’t have enough third-party exclusives, by stressing that they would come in good time.

“GTA: Land Of The Free”

Play Magazine (UK) have published a four-page article containing rumours, speculation and a fake map plus details of how they believe GTA4 will look. They’ve named it “GTA: Land Of The Free”, which basically consists of ten major US cities, including those featured in previous GTA titles. Ten cities seems a bit far fetched in my opinion, but they do

GTA Next on PS3?

Various early reports (such as IGN) following the PS3’s unveiling at E3 are saying that Sony have mentioned the next GTA could/will be a launch title. This hasn’t been officially confirmed to my knowledge, but I did find this quote lurking amongst a bunch of other quotes from random developers regarding the new console: “Each time SCEI launches a console, the

EGMs San Andreas Afterthoughts

Electronic Gaming Monthly magazine has done an article about Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas in its January issue (number 187). The article appears in the “Afterthoughts” feature. EGM interviewed Terry Donovan (CEO, Rockstar Games), Sam Houser (President, Rockstar Games) and Dan Houser (creative director) about the development process behind San Andreas. The feature also includes a “10 things you didn’t
