GTA5 map is bigger than San Andreas map........

I know, but imagine if SF, LV, and the whole san andreas map would made too with the size-rate of this new LS...

Just as I feared, the graphics are really weak. The narrative looks decent but without any indication as to what the gameplay is like we still know pretty much nothing about the game, other than that PC users are getting screwed over again. I'm really surprised that GTAV and Assassin's Creed 3 both went for last current-gen rather than first next-gen, especially when it's easy to scale down games so they can still benefit from the massive install base of the current consoles.

As for the issues you experience... I know it isn't a popular opinion round here, but that is what you get with PC games. I learnt that they were more trouble than they are worth a few years ago now.

What are you talking about? I was complaining that Max Payne 3 had cutscenes that were pre-rendered at console graphics levels and that it looks terrible in comparison to PC quality graphics. Unfortunately, that's what you get when bad developers put out half-assed ports - even the console versions of GTAIV suffered from slow down and the resolution for the PS3 version had to be lowered as well. Consoles can't render at 2560x1600, let alone 60fps, let alone with anti-aliasing, let alone with hardware physics, let alone with high resolution textures, etc. Even the bad PC ports are better than the console versions - it's just they terrible in comparison to how they should have been. Consoles are great if you don't care about graphics or accurate consoles and you're on a budget. That may sound elitist but it's like comparing McDonald's to a fancy restaurant - they both provide good food, it's just aimed at people with different tastes.

oh man! what a trailer!

Meh, cinematics again. Some gameplay would have been nice.

It's not all just cinematics, some of is gameplay just with the camera switched, and Rockstars cinematic are always rendered in game

I mean you didn't really expect raw gameplay footage from a Rockstar trailer did you...

Just as I feared, the graphics are really weak.

You say that like it's a huge blow. I think the game looks technically brilliant considering it's on console, but more importantly the art direction looks incredible.

GTA4 PC sold 700k.

Consoles sold nearly 25 million.

Where would you sink your money?

The graphics aren't weak. Considering the size of the game and the systems it is on, I think they are pretty impressive. Unless i've missed something, there is no claims of it every coming to pc anyway right?

Even if it does, you should keep in mind, that GTA4 with some small mods is one of the best looking games you can currently run on your PC. This would only look better.

Trailer looks great. (Y) Makes GTA IV look really boring and dull, and as I already said, I didn't find that as bad as some did.

What are you talking about? I was complaining that Max Payne 3 had cutscenes that were pre-rendered at console graphics levels and that it looks terrible in comparison to PC quality graphics. Unfortunately, that's what you get when bad developers put out half-assed ports - even the console versions of GTAIV suffered from slow down and the resolution for the PS3 version had to be lowered as well.

Consoles are great if you don't care about graphics or accurate consoles and you're on a budget. That may sound elitist but it's like comparing McDonald's to a fancy restaurant - they both provide good food, it's just aimed at people with different tastes.

As I said, this is what you get with PC gaming. To be fair it is as much of (if not more of) a problem with the gamers as the developers. Why would you expect cutscenes to work on such an uncommon resolution? If I stick any of my old PC games in, the cutscenes are smaller than my resolution because they were rendered for common screen sizes of the time. I have never come across a game where pre-rendered cutscenes are upscaled for higher resolutions. Is no wonder developers can't be bothered with PC gaming - too much hassle to code for the platform so loads of bugs, then they get slated by the elitists who expect games to work with every weird and wonderful feature/peripheral/hardware PC gamers can throw money at and then they sell fairly small numbers anyway. I still play a couple of PC games, but I don't miss it at all. Spent more time fixing problems than playing games and since I switched I've found myself enjoying gaming much more as a whole. If you're happy with PC gaming then fine, but don't expect the ridiculous.

Anyway going off-topic so will leave it there.

People who base their purchase of a GTA game on graphics quite clearly shouldn't buy it. The GTA series has never been about how it looks, but how it plays. After all you can't get the best graphics out of such an open world sand box game. To be fair on Rockstar, what they've shown so far seems to be mind blowing, espeshally on how old the hardware is within todays consoles.

Also, by now you should expect a PC release to be delayed for 6 months + as it's the way Rockstar works. So wipe thoughs tears Q_Q

This game is going to be amazing! - Tommy Vercetti in San Andreas = the ultimate win.

As long as they have a Decent radio Im happy to roam around the map messing about, San Andreas was the best for this.

Never played Vice City? :/

V-Rock / Wave 103 > all.

And once again no PC........amazing.

Although it hasn't been officially announced yet, I highly doubt they'll ignore the PC platform. I'm sure it'll be released after the console versions.

They announched GTA IV (or san andreas) after half year from the console version, or something like that...

As I said, this is what you get with PC gaming. To be fair it is as much of (if not more of) a problem with the gamers as the developers. Why would you expect cutscenes to work on such an uncommon resolution?

Pre-rendered cutscenes should be rendered at maximum settings and scaled down. It wouldn't be as bad if they used anti-aliasing and were rendered at 1080p. The real issue is that if they were rendered in-game it wouldn't be an issue.

If I stick any of my old PC games in, the cutscenes are smaller than my resolution because they were rendered for common screen sizes of the time. I have never come across a game where pre-rendered cutscenes are upscaled for higher resolutions.

But the most common gaming resolution now is 1080p and developers should want their game to look as good as possible. I understand that the X360 has a limited capacity storage but the PS3 has Blu-ray and can easily store videos at 1080p. So the issue is bad development decisions.

Is no wonder developers can't be bothered with PC gaming - too much hassle to code for the platform so loads of bugs, then they get slated by the elitists who expect games to work with every weird and wonderful feature/peripheral/hardware PC gamers can throw money at and then they sell fairly small numbers anyway.

You say that as if most games aren't ported to the PC when that simply isn't the case. I don't know what you have against PC gamers but the reality is that the PC offers the best gaming experience out there and developers should want their games to be enjoyed like that.

Spent more time fixing problems than playing games and since I switched I've found myself enjoying gaming much more as a whole. If you're happy with PC gaming then fine, but don't expect the ridiculous.

It's great that you enjoy that but I expect more from gaming and certainly can't stomach playing at 720p with such low visual fidelity - if I wanted that I could have just kept my PC from 6 years ago. It's not "ridiculous" to expect a PC version released at the same time. It's not "ridiculous" to expect cinematics that are rendered at a sensible resolution and with graphics comparable to in-game visuals. It's not "ridiculous" to want PC gamers to be treated with respect. The issues you listed are design issues, not PC issues - most games don't suffer from them, so I won't tolerate them from Rockstar. If Rockstar isn't up to producing proper PC ports then I'm not up to handing over money for them.

Stop right there: no it's not. Most AAA games run at 720p if not less (many at an upscaled 640p).

Again, you're not looking at cost v. reward. GTA4 sold 700k on PC. Which is great, until you compare it to nearly 25 million on 360/PS3.

It's better to build for consoles where you'll make your money, then go about rebuilding the port to deal with all sorts of resolutions, video cards, processors, and the variables and bugs involved.

That may not be the case for all developers, but this particular generation, even the major developers that catered to PC gamers (Epic, Bioware, Crytek, etc.) seem to be aiming their games for consoles where you only have to variables to worry about -- 360 build or PS3 build.

Where did you get that 700k number and from what period of sales was it exactly?

      Grand Theft Auto V is coming to Xbox Series X and PS5 with exclusive content
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      During the PlayStation 5 reveal event today, Rockstar Games revealed that its massively popular third-person action game Grand Theft Auto V is coming to next-generation consoles in 2021. The new releases will be heralding enhancements too. Check out the announcement trailer above, though sadly, it features gameplay from the current generation consoles.

      Rockstar says that the new versions will come with "a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the latest hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever."

      The studio will be delivering exclusive GTA Online content for the next-generation consoles and PC once the new launches come through as well. A standalone version of GTA Online is also planned for the new consoles, and it will be completely free for PlayStation 5 players during the initial three months after the game's launch. Standard pricing information was not released today for this multiplayer-only variant.

      Continuing on with the PlayStation bonuses, Rockstar will be giving away a million dollars of GTA Online cash every month to PlayStation Plus members who login to the game. The promotion will run until the game's PlayStation 5 edition arrives.

      Grand Theft Auto V as well as the standalone Online portion are releasing in the second half of 2021 on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. It doesn't appear as though current generation owners will be getting a free upgrade or anything of the sort.

      Grand Theft Auto V is now available on Xbox Game Pass for Console
      by Hamza Jawad



      Last month, Microsoft introduced a bunch of games to Xbox Game Pass for Console, including The Witcher 3, Pillars of Eternity, My Friend Pedro, and more. Now, in a somewhat unexpected announcement, the firm has announced the availability of Grand Theft Auto V for subscribers of its Game Pass for Console service starting today.

      The hugely popular action-adventure title that took the gaming world by storm likely needs no introduction, even for the casual gamer. For those who are unaware of it, however, GTA V is the latest entry in Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series, and it first launched on last generation consoles in 2013, followed by a current generation console release in 2014 before arriving to PC a year later.



      Notably, those who are subscribed to the Ultimate version of Game Pass, or to Xbox Live Gold, will also be able to access GTA Online for free, which received The Diamond Casino Heist update earlier last month. Game Pass users will be able to purchase the Criminal Enterprise Starter pack and Shark Cash Cards for up to 10% off the regular price. These users can buy the base game from the Microsoft Store for 50% off for the next six days as well. And finally, something that may be of interest to those who want to enjoy the online component with their friends - the first three months of Game Pass Ultimate for new subscribers can be obtained for a mere $1. This deal will end on January 6.

      Although its quite likely that fans of the Grand Theft Auto series have already experienced the title in some form or another over the past few years, a digital release offers a slight incentive to those Xbox owners who currently have it on discs. And of course, there are bound to be people who will revisit the title due to the value in replayability it offers.

      Saudi Arabia bans 47 video games including GTA V
      by Usama Jawad

      A few days ago, we learned that 86% of parents in the UK do not pay any attention to age ratings for games. While this is a problem that likely needs to be remedied, another problem concerning video games has arisen, this time in Saudi Arabia.

      Saudi Arabia has banned 47 popular video games, reportedly in response to two children committing suicide due to the Blue Whale Challenge.

      The Blue Whale Challenge is a "game" that gives incrementally difficult tasks to the player, most of which have elements of self-harm. The ultimate challenge requires the player to commit suicide. Although the viral phenomenon did not spread to the west, it allegedly spread quite quickly in countries like Bangladesh, China, India, and Iran. Apparently, the challenge also led to the suicides of two 12- and 13-year old children in Saudi Arabia.

      As a result, reports indicate that authorities in Saudi Arabia have decided to ban 47 games, including extremely popular ones like Grand Theft Auto V, The Witcher 3, Hitman: Absolution, God of War, Wolfenstein II, and various games from the Resident Evil series. The full list of games can be seen below:

      Agents of Mayhem Assassins Creed 2 Attack on titan 2 Bayonetta 2 Clash of the Titans Dante's Inferno Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition Deadpool Deception IV : The Nightmare Princess Deus Ex Mankind Divided Devil's Third DmC - Definitive edition Dragon Age: Inquisition Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Draw to Death Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 God of War 1 God of War 2 God of War 3 Grand Theft Auto V Heavy Rain Hitman: Absolution (2012) Life is Strange Mafia 2 Mafia 3 Metro Redux Okami One Piece Burning Blood Past Cure Prison Architect Resident Evil 5 Resident Evil 6 Saints Row IV Splatterhouse Street Fighter V Street Fighter 30th Anniversary The Order 1886 The Saboteur The Witcher 3 The Nonary Game Thief Vampyr Watch Dogs Wolfenstein 2 Wolfenstein: The New Order YO-KAI WATCH While authorities have not clarified what links the aforementioned 47 games to the tragic suicides, it is important to note that most of these games do contain elements of violence. That said, violence would still be a strange reason to outright ban so many games without any prior public indication.

      Lindsay Lohan's appeal against GTA V gets thrown out of court
      by Usama Jawad

      Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most expensive video games in history with a budget of $267 million. It is also among the best-selling games of all-time, with Grand Theft Auto Online still being a significant cash cow for the publisher, Take-Two Interactive.

      But actress Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls, The Parent Trap) has long been wanting a piece of that pie, with the celebrity suing GTA V developer Rockstar Games back in 2014. Her latest appeal against the title has once again been unceremoniously thrown out of court.



      Lohan filed a lawsuit against Rockstar Games four years ago, saying that an in-game character Lacey Jonas (pictured above on the right, in case you were confused) was an "unequivocal" reference to herself. Lohan's lawyers further claimed that a mission in GTA V - in which the player must help Lacey Jonas evade paparazzi - "contains identical events to the Plaintiff's life".

      The suit also claimed that the marketing material for GTA V, which featured a blonde woman, was deliberately based upon Lohan in terms of likeness. Another pre-game intro sequence also sported the woman being handcuffed by a police officer. In response, GTA V's creators called Lohan out for being an attention-seeker with her frivolous lawsuit, and the case was thrown out of court in 2016.

      Lohan claimed that the blonde woman at the top of this image was based on her However, it appears that Lohan and her lawyers still haven't had enough, with the party filing an appeal against the decision. Unsurprisingly, this appeal was once again dismissed by the New York State's highest court in a unanimous 6-0 decision that agreed that the fictional characters were most certainly not based on Lohan.

      The decision claimed that the characters were nothing more than a "cultural comment" and the blonde woman in question was merely a generic "twenty-something" female. Judge Eugene Fahey's ruling stated that:

      It is unclear if Lohan will continue to pursue the case, but given her lawyers' seemingly undying dedication to this cause, we'll likely hear about it again soon enough.

      Acer announces a new range of Windows 10 devices at IFA 2017
      by Gurkaran Singh

      It's raining Windows 10 devices at Acer's IFA 2017 event in Berlin. The company has announced a slew of devices powered by Microsoft's OS including gaming desktops, all-in-ones, and convertibles.

      Here's a list of the devices:

      Acer Predator Orion 9000 series gaming desktops

      This beast of a machine can support over 8K UHD, and features up to an Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition 18-core processor, with up to a 4-way AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 in CrossFire or two-way Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti in SLI. To keep the temperatures low, Acer is including something that it has dubbed as 'Ice Tunnel 2.0', which is just a fancy name for a solution that splits the system into several different thermal zones; for the processor, Acer is using an all-in-one liquid cooler.

      The device's ports include two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (one Type-C and one Type-A), eight USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports (one Type-C and seven Type-A), and two USB 2.0 ports (Type-A). It also supports three M.2 slots and four PCIe x16 slots.

      The Orion 9000 series will be available in North America this December with prices starting at $1,999, and in EMEA in November starting at €1,999.

      Acer Predator X35



      The Acer Predator X35 is a 35-inch, 21:9 ultra-wide quantum dot monitor with a 1800 curvature and a WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution. Nvidia's G-Sync and Acer's HDR Ultra also make a welcome addition, with the monitor boasting a 200Hz refresh rate, a 4ms response time, as well as 512 Dynamic Backlight Zones. It's expected to be available sometime in Q1 2018, but there appears to be no word on its price just yet.

      Switch 7 Black Edition

      This 2-in-1 detachable seems to be in direct competition of the Surface Pro released earlier this year. The device sports the 5-inch IPS display with 2256×1504 resolution and its internals includes an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor, Nvidia GeForce MX150, and Acer's Dual LiquidLoop fanless cooling technology. It also comes with an auto-retractable stand that Acer has handily dubbed as 'AutoStand'.

      The device weighs about 1.15kg (2.5lbs), supports Windows Hello and has an embedded battery-free stylus powered by Wacom's EMR technology. The Switch 7 Black Edition will be available in North America in December with prices starting at $1,699, and in EMEA in December starting at €1,999.

      Swift 5 with Windows 10

      The sub-1kg metal device comes with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, an FHD IPS touchscreen display, and Dolby Audio Premium. Acer promises an 8-hour battery life but, as always it may vary depending on your usage. The device will go on sale in North America in December starting at $999, in EMEA in December starting at €1,099, and in China in November starting at ¥7,499.

      Spin 5 with Windows 10

      While its predecessor offered only a 15.6" display, this year Acer is introducing two variants of its lightweight convertible: 13-inch and 15-inch. The Spin 5 sports an 8th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, front-facing speakers, up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, and Dolby Audio Premium along with Acer TrueHarmony and promises of up to 13 hours of battery life.

      The 15-inch model comes with a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics option. An optional Acer Active Stylus is also on offer.

      The Spin 5 will go on sale in North America and EMEA starting from this September, with both the 13-inch and 15-inch models starting at $799 or, in EMEA, the 13-inch model starting at €899 and the 15-inch model starting at €999.

      Aspire S24 All-in-One

      The Aspire S24 is an all-in-one that comes with a side-profile of just 5.97 mm with thin bezels that provide a 90% screen-to-body ratio. On the inside, it comes with the 8th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, a tiltable (-5 to 30 degree) FHD IPS display, Qi wireless charging pad and Acer VisionCare technology. The device comes with storage options of up to 256 GB SSD and a 2TB HDD. The Acer Aspire S24 will be available in the North America beginning January 2018 starting at $999, and in EMEA in November 2017 starting at €999.
