Following on from the cover reveal earlier, the digital version of this month's Game Informer magazine is out now. Below is our summary of the massive amount of information covered in the magazine.
Here it is, Game Informer's cover revealed for the world exclusive GTA V preview which will be out in just a few more hours. The cover shows THREE main characters, all of which have been seen in various artwork and screenshots so far.
Look out for more online previews appearing next week. Some gaming websites are starting to inform their readers, in particular, two tweets from a pair of Dutch websites say they'll have previews up on Monday, 12th November.

A GTAForums user has discovered a new GTA V screenshot on UK magazine Short List's website, where it is being used to promote a competition to win one of the photo viewers that have recently been given out by various US retailers. This is the first we've heard of the photo viewers being available outside the US so keep an eye out for more news regarding them.
The image features a character (possibly the man in the quad bike artwork) riding a jet ski.
As we reported on last month, today marks the release of Rockstar Games Collection Edition 1 in North America for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The collection retails for $59.99, and features four critically acclaimed, best-selling Rockstar titles, including Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, L.A. Noire and Midnight Club: Los Angeles Complete Edition.
Rockstar have finally announced the release date for the second GTA V trailer! Our countdown timer is now live on the homepage.
What are you hoping to see in the trailer?
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.
