The Revamped PS Plus Lineup Is Stacked, Once You Make Sense Of It

With the big PS Plus relaunch on the horizon (get your Zero Dawn jokes out of here), we finally have an idea of what exactly to expect. Today, in a blog post, Sony outlined everything—games, streaming offerings, a partnership with Ubisoft—coming to the service. It’s a lot. Let’s break it down. PS Plus 2.0, first officially announced in March, is a total revamp of the long-running PS Plus service, essentially folding all of PlayStation’s disparate subscriptions into one. It’s available in three tiers, which you can read more about right here, but the general breakdown is:Though the option to play…

Max Payne 1 & 2 remakes are coming from Remedy Entertainment

The remakes are currently just in the concept stage of development. Remedy Entertainment and Rockstar Games have entered an agreement that will see the former remake the first two Max Payne games.

GTA 5 hits PS5 tomorrow… but I don’t want to stop playing GTA: Chinatown Wars

A peculiar little Nintendo DS oddity, Rockstar’s top-down tale of drugs, vice and family feuds is as worthy as any of its console siblings. Handing over a brick of heroin to a visibly paranoid dealer, I finalise the sale price using the DS stylus – and can’t help picturing a disapproving Shigeru Miyamoto. As the constantly smiling creator of Mario – the huggable godfather of gaming – Miyamoto seems endearingly innocent. Now, I’m using the device that brought us Nintendogs to push Class A drugs. Still, there are more pressing matters at hand. Finally agreeing to my price, the scruffy-looking…

Grand Theft Auto units sales exceed 370 million, GTA 5 sales exceed 160 million units

And GTA: The Trilogy made up 10 million of those units. The Grand Theft Auto franchise continues to be a lucrative property for Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two Interactive. According to the company’s Q3 2022 financial report, the series has now moved over 370 million copies worldwide, which is up 15 million from the last reported figure. The company said that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was one of the contributing factors leading to the better than expected quarter, and while sales of the title weren’t provided, it is estimated the offering has moved millions of copies,…

Work on a new Grand Theft Auto “is well underway”, Rockstar say

Eight years after the launch of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games have finally confirmed yes, they really are making a new GTA. For eight years they’ve focused on adding new content to the MMO-y GTA Online mode, which seems a licence to print money by selling in-game cash for real cash. This has made some fans ornery, wondering if they’ll just keep on plugging away at GTAO forever, especially with GTAV coming to next-gen consoles this year. But no, really, Rockstar say they really have been making a new one. Read more

Bully 2 may have been killed by stretching resources too thin, layoffs – report

Crunching on other projects may have contributed to the Bully 2 studio’s downfall. Game Informer’s Blake Hester published a detailed report all about the Bully 2 that might have been and what led to the studio developing the sequel’s downfall. In short, Rockstar New England was pulled in multiple directions to the point where Bully 2 was no longer the focus of the developers who worked there. Rockstar New England, which was purchased by Rockstar when the former was Mad Doc Software and was responsible for the next-gen remaster of the first Bully at the time, had ambitious plans for…

Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most watched game on Twitch in 2021

The statistic shows the massive tail that the game has. Kotaku reports that according to the latest year in review report from stream tools company StreamElements, Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most watched game on Twitch, dominating a chart full of games that have solidly lodged themselves at the top for multiple years running. It might sound slightly surprising that a game that’s eight years old is still topping the Twitch charts, but that’s because Twitch doesn’t differentiate between Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online, the source of the former’s extremely long tail and a seemingly…

No matter how you measure it, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition hasn’t had the most successful launch. Marred by a myriad of technical issues and sporting a controversial art style, it’s a release that left both players and critics alike fairly lukewarm. Now, however, Rockstar is hoping a free game will right that wrong. The PC version in particular stoked fans ire, with…

2021 Was Both A Great And Terrible Year For GTA Fans

Rockstar’s super popular Grand Theft Auto franchise is in a weird place in 2021. It’s a game series that remains huge, despite going years without a big, new release. Its online iteration is more popular than ever, yet if you look around Reddit and Twitter you’d assume it has no fans.

The first of many planned updates has arrived. Rockstar has released the first GTA: Trilogy – The Definitive Edition title update. It’s a decent-sized patch too, and fixes multiple localization issues, instances of missing or misaligned collision, and more in all three games. With GTA 3, issues with blurry camera cuts and transitions during cutscenes have been addressed, some failing missions were fixed, Claude will no longer float in the air because that’s just not how things work, and the game should no longer crash after getting in your car upon completing Triad War. Plenty of fixes have also been…

It seems all is not well with the PC version of the game. Rockstar Games has pulled the PC version of GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition from sale, and for almost two days, the launcher was offline. While the Rockstar launcher was eventually brought back online, the PC version of the game remains unavailable for purchase on Rockstar’s website, and those who already own it are unable to play it. And it is unknown as of press time when the game will be brought back online. According to Rockstar, the game was pulled due to some files “unintentionally” included with…
