The ESRB website has recently been updated to include two new entries for GTA games on the PlayStation 3, one for Grand Theft Auto 3, the other for Vice City. The publisher in both cases is listed as Sony Computer Entertainment America, which suggests both titles will be appearing as PS2 classics. This unfortunately means they're unlikely to be on the receiving end of any HD treatment, but still, they'll be nice to have in your collection.
Rockstar Games today announced that Max Payne 3 will be delayed by a couple of months, to ensure it will deliver "the highest quality, groundbreaking entertainment experience" that we expect. Originally slated for a March 2012 release, the new dates for the PS3 and Xbox 360 are 15th May, 2012 in North America and 18th May, 2012 internationally. The PC version will come 2 weeks later on 29th May, 2012 in North America and 1st June, 2012 internationally.
A couple of weeks before Christmas we posted about a mod in the works that brings Vice City to the world of GTA IV. The Vice City RAGE team are now proud to announce that they have released the first public beta of their mod. Check out the trailer below:
Looks awesome! To play this you'll need an unmodded copy of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. Got that? If so, here's the official torrent of the mod. It's 3.35GB so best leave it running in the background while you do other things. Have you got this installed? Let us know what it's like in the comments.
Rockstar have just posted up the second part of the questions you have been asking about GTA III. There's some really interesting things brought up in this one, and a lot of old rumours quashed.
Check out the newswire article for questions relating to 9/11, The âGhost Townâ, The Dodo and Other Mysteries. (And look at the size of that script!)
Happy new year everyone! If you're reading this on the main site you'll notice things have changed a bit. This updated layout is just one of a number of changes we have planned for The GTA Place in 2012, and we hope you'll like the changes we've made so far.
The first new feature I'd like to point out is the new live search at the top right hand corner of every page, this offers quick and easy access to all our content (which we are in the process of making even better), with search results appearing as you type.
Perhaps more obvious is the fact we've moved the navigation to the right hand side, and also made it much bigger, while still allowing ample space for content as well as giving us the opportunity to highlight new and interesting content through features which we will be regularly updating.
Yep, it's that time of year again! Things are looking a lot more optimistic on the GTA scene this time round. The announcement of GTA V two months ago peaked our collective interest in Grand Theft Auto once more, but as we anticipate the release of another trailer and the first screenshots and previews to come forth, there's not much to do but continue to speculate. We can't be sure when new info will appear, but it's best to keep checking back here as often as possible, you never know when Rockstar might treat us to something special.
Rockstar have today updated the Android version of Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition to version 1.1 with a number of fixes and added support for the Droid Bionic, Galaxy Nexus and Samsung Galaxy S II devices.
This fixes include:
- A fix so that immediately skipping cutscenes will no longer cause issues
- The addition of PowerVR GPU support
- Improved shader error handing and a few additional technical fixes
To update your game, just go to the Android Market on your device where you'll be prompted to download the latest version.
Last week we showed you the Vice City RAGE mod for GTA IV that is looking very good already and due to be released next month, and if you've been following GTA IV modding news you may remember we reported on a similar project a few months ago, one which brought San Andreas into GTA IV. Today, the GTAIV: San Andreas team have finally released the second beta of their mod, adding new features including radio, a new HUD, improved map, new lights, plus many more. Here's a video of the mod
The download is a rather large 1.5GB, but there are a number of sites hosting it as well as a torrent available. Download links can be found on the GTAIVSA website. We'll have our own mirror up soon.
For over a year, a team of talented modders have been working on an ambitious project to bring Vice City into GTAIV using RAGE. Proving that the GTA IV mod scene is alive and kicking, they have kept up their work and have now reached a point where the mod is almost ready for release, the first beta apparently being 98% complete. To show off their mod the team have released a trailer, and we have to say, it looks pretty damn awesome. Take a look...
Impressive stuff don't you agree? We should clarify this mod is actually for Episodes from Liberty City rather than GTA IV itself, and is due to be released on 5th January. For more information see the GTAForums topic.
Rockstar have announced through the Newswire that the 10th anniversary edition of Grand Theft Auto III will be arriving on mobile devices next week on the 15th December. The game will launch on the App Store and Android Marketplace at a low price point of just $4.99 (Â£2.99 / 3,99 â¬). Rockstar have also updated the list of devices the game will be compatible with:
Apple iOS Devices: iPad 1 & 2, iPhone 4 & 4S, iPod touch 4th Generation
Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x
Some photos of an alleged Xbox 360 build of GTA V are making the rounds today, and at first glance they're actually pretty good. However, moving on to some light analysis we can soon see they are quite likely to be fakes. I am not going to link to the source website because they are virtually unheard of and in all likelihood they were created as a publicity stunt, they have even since updated their post to point out they are likely fake anyway.
Here are the images in question (click for full size):
GTAForums member Dourvas has made an interesting discovery relating to the protagonist of GTA V. The first GTA V trailer is narrated very clearly, and we assume the narrator is the main character we play as. The older guy seen in the trailer is who we presume the voice belongs to. You'll notice actor Ned Luke bears an uncanny resemblance to him...

I'm sure many of you reading this will remember trailers for GTA IV being recreated in GTA: San Andreas, most notably those made by Brotha which we featured on the front page here at The GTA Place. Well, it didn't take long for GTAV's first trailer to get that same treatment, this time by YouTube user CreativityZone. Below, you can watch his recreation along with the real GTA V trailer vertically split-screen to see exactly how they compare. I think he's done a pretty amazing job.
Rockstar have today officially announced that Grand Theft Auto V is in full development. The company released a statement on the newswire which confirms that the game will be set in Los Santos only, not all of San Andreas; it will however include "surrounding hills, countryside and beaches".
The statement also confirms that money will be a major theme of the game, and that GTA V will be the largest and most ambitious GTA to date, re-imagining present day Southern California.
Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.
It's out! Now shut up and watch!
