Rockstar have just announced that Grand Theft Auto V is now officially available for pre-order from various websites and stores. Additionally, Rockstar have made available an extended version of the "beach weather" artwork that was revealed a few days ago. Check that out in full below.
Ahead of their exclusive review, Game Informer have posted high-res versions of a couple of the new artworks we've been seeing from in-store promotional displays. One shows the hispanic man from the trailer holding a dog called "Chop", while the other shows a female police officer arresting a lady whose wearing a Love Fist t-shirt. Love Fist were a fictional metal band that featured in Vice City for those of you who can't remember that far back! Check them out below.
As GTA V becomes available for pre-order in just a few days (5th November), many stores across the world have received promotional materials for the game to hand out to customers. It seems some lucky people have managed to get their hands on some a little early.
The main item currently getting a lot of attention is a small photo viewer that when looked through shows various locations, in fact, in a style not too dissimilar to the Vice City postcards some of you may have seen back in 2002. Various photos are being posted by members in a GTAForums thread, here are some pictures of the images inside it.
Rockstar have officially announced the Spring 2013 release period for Grand Theft Auto V. A new artwork was also released.
UK retailer GAME this morning tweeted confirmation of GTAV's Spring 2013 release date (which we posted about a few days ago) via one of its local Twitter feeds for a store in Brighton. The tweet encouraged users to pre-order GTA V and contained a photo of 3 different box art designs, two of which feature brand new artworks. The tweet has since been deleted, but of course people had already saved it. You can check out the photo of the artworks below (click for the full size image).
The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), responsible for assigning ratings to video games in North America, has now rated GTA: San Andreas for the PS3. Back in June, ratings were spotted for PS3 versions of both GTA III and Vice City, since then only GTA III has been released. This rating of San Andreas practically confirms existence of the game, and one would assume that both this and Vice City will be released in the near future, with Vice City logically arriving first, possibly alongside its release for iOS and Android.
A photo of a promotional poster for GTA V allegedly taken by an employee of a store in London has found its way into the hands GTA fans today. The poster features the new "Pest Control" artwork which was released the other day, as well as a brand new piece of artwork depicting a character with a dog on a chain. Please excuse the obnoxious watermark added by another fansite, we don't have the original photo at this time.
Rockstar have just released the first official GTA V artwork, featuring a scene from last year's debut trailer titled "Pest Control". Rockstar also promised "lots of info coming next month", some of which we know will be coming from Game Informer's exclusive preview
You can grab the artwork in various sizes for your devices from the official website.
Game Informer's editor-in-chief Andy McNamara has just confirmed via Twitter that GTA V will be the magazine's December cover story. We imagine this issue will be out in early November.

Hopefully this will satisfy the rabid collection of drooling angsty teenagers the GTA community has now become!
Back in July we reported on Grand Theft Auto III coming to the PSN store as a PS2 classic. That release got pushed back due to some licensing issues around certain music in the game, however, the US PlayStation Blog has confirmed today that GTA III will finally be arriving on the US PSN store tomorrow, 25th September, and will set you back $9.99. Currently there's no word on availability or pricing in other regions; Europe, Asia and elsewhere may also see it tomorrow, or we may have to wait another week or so.
The GTA IV: San Andreas team have released a new beta of their awesome total conversion mod that brings the world of San Andreas into GTA IV using the powerful RAGE engine. Beta 3 adds a whole host of improvements, fixes, and features. Probably best summed up by the team themselves.
In this new third beta, new features are added, including, but not limited to multiplayer, races, gang wars, improved Setup and Launcher, improved graphics, map, vehicles, sounds, peds, shaders, collision materials, timecycle... Plenty improved stuff to check out!
Watch the launch trailer below.
Back in January we heard that Grand Theft Auto III and Vice City would be coming to the PS3 in the form of PS2 Classics on PSN. And today, the official PlayStation Blogcast has confirmed that GTA III at least will be arriving on the PlayStation Store this Tuesday, 31st July.
The game will be released as a "PS2 Classic", which unfortunately means it's simply a direct port of the PS2 version of the game. So sadly there will be no fancy remastered HD graphics or trophies that many of you were hoping for. The game will set you back $9.99 in the US.
No word on availability in other regions yet. We'll update if we find any information on that.
