No Plans For Grand Theft Auto V On The PlayStation 4
Dan Houser of Rockstar recently stated that although the company are excited about the prospect of new hardware, they currently don’t have any plans to release Grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation 4. This appears to have come as quite the surprise to many gamers that expected a PlayStation 4 release would be more likely than the highly requested PC release.
Whether or not we’ll see Grand Theft Auto V expand onto other platforms is yet to be seen but it’s not like there’s a lack of interest. It’s the highest rated game in history on MetaCritic and the general response from critics and gamers is overwhelmingly positive.
PlayStation 4 Will Support 4 Profiles At Once
During a recent interview with GamerNo SCEE Boss Jim Ryan revealed that up to 4 simultaneous profiles will be supported for Sony’s next-generation console, the PlayStation 4. Much like the current feature supported by the Xbox 360, PlayStation fans will finally have the opportunity to use their profiles, achievements and saved files when playing away from home.
If you’ve ever had to endure losing your classes and setups on titles like Call of Duty, that kind of problem will be a thing of the past as up to 4 players can use their profiles at any one time. Great news for us social gamers.
Community Calls For GameStop Writers Head On A Plate
GameStop are currently recovering after a slew of comments attacked one of their review writers, Carolyn Petit. Carolyn wrote her review of Grand Theft Auto V, awarding it with a highly respectable 9.0, but that’s not what gamers are unhappy about. Many have called to GameStop requesting that Carolyn should be fired due to her giving her opinion in the review.
That’s right. The reviewer offered an opinion on the article they were reviewing and is being criticized for doing so. Carolyn touched on her perspective of misogyny during her adventures in San Andreas. Whether you agree or disagree is not the point here. She offered an opinion in an opinion-based article and now she’s getting hounded for it. More on that story here.
Grand Theft Auto V Is The Fastest Selling Game In History
Captain Camper scored Grand Theft Auto V a hugely impressive 10/10 and it seems the gaming community tends to agree. Rockstar have announced that in just 3 days, Grand Theft Auto V has grossed $1 billion in sales. Grand Theft Auto V also grossed $800m on just the first day of launch, selling in excess of 1.57 million units in under 24 hours.
Not only is that amazing but it also beat Call of Duty: Black Ops, showing that the gaming industry craves more than just the FPS experience. Grand Theft Auto V is one hell of an experience and we cannot wait until Grand Theft Auto Online.
GameStop Antics During GTA Midnight Launch Hit The Web
A new video has surfaced that shows a customer in GameStop arguing with a customer service representative after the individual was asked for ID before purchasing Grand Theft Auto V. I can relate to the mans disbelief as despite having more gray hairs than Leslie Nelson, I still get asked for ID to enter the movies.
However, he didn’t handle it very well and neither did the employee, threatening to give his contact information to other customers. It’s unlikely they’ll be any backlash for the employee, although it’s probably safe to say the individual won’t be shopping there again in future.
Ubisoft Release New Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag Multiplayer Trailer

However, don’t take my word for it. Watch the video above and post your opinion in the comment section below.
