(Not related, but one of the songs on Radio Los Santos on Next-Gen, I've listened to many times and thought it should be in GTA V and it is! Bugatti by Ace Hood ft. Rick Ross. Yay, it's a great song.)Read more >

Hey guys. Welcome to a Weazel News Breaking News blog!
Today's breaking news is about the apparent leaked info by a member of the Rockstar Support team. What basically happened, is a user asked Rockstar Support about what changes he could expect to see when transitioning from PS3, Xbox 360 to PS4, Xbox One - a pretty normal question right? Well, it didn't have the exact answer that someone would expect.
The Rockstar Support guy started off talking about graphics, animals blah blah blah. However, he then began bullet-pointing things that nobody had actually known. The biggest piece of info was that there would be a new first-person mode when inside vehicles but most notably when on foot.
Anyways, enough chit chat. Here's a video made by renowned Youtuber, Olli43.Read more >
Hello and welcome to Weazel News with me, LS11sVaultBoy!
I haven't done a news report for about 8 months since mid February. I thought that the series should be rejuvenated but under a new name. It, for now, seems to be just me doing the news. It will be released every Friday with the chance of a random one happening for special events such as updates or - if it lasts this long - any new GTA games released by Rockstar. So, let's get going with this week's news!
Finally! Grand Theft Auto V on the next gen has got a release date! As many of you will now know, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release date has been announced as November 18, 2014 and sadly, for PC players that is, the PC version has been delayed to January 27, 2015. Hopefully the delayed release date means that EVEN MORE can be added to GTA V than is already being added exclusively to the Xbox One and PS4.
In other news, new Michael, Franklin and Trevor artwork plus much more is available for download from http://www.rockstarga…

Let's face it: Nobody believes in satire and/or parodies anymore, and apparently class-action lawsuits over idiotic things, especially video games, are just too frequent these days...
Welcome to the third and not the final edition of the GTA V Controversy series. Please, crack open an ice cold Pisswasser (Uh, oh, Bud Light pun! Might get sued for this!!!) and enjoy reading these wonderful controversies ranging from October 2013, to the day this blog post was created.
Ah, Lindsay Lohan. I remember your glory days as an actor. Now you are just a drugged-up mess that can't even think straight. She tweeted back in December 2013 that she was going to sue GTA V because the artwork of the hot bikini babe was used on the cover of the game and on the disc. Funny time how she noticed it, because the artwork was released in NOVEMBER 2012! Now, this may be plausible; either she wasn't aware of the hype that was going around or she was just waiting so she could sue the game and get her fair share from…

Hey there guys. I was reading through some articles on a website when I came across something. It is an interview with the owner of Take-Two. He says that Take-Two are likely to be not planning to make the GTA Series a permanent series. He says that with GTA Online, they may not need to make anymore games for the series.
badpotentially terrible news, there was some which is good for some people. He says that if demand is high enough, it is likely that they will begin producing GTA V for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

First of all, let us start off by saying sorry for the late news report, I personally have been pretty busy lately.

All upgrades for the Rat Loader (excluding paint jobs) are free until the end of February. The DLC also released a new gun, the Gusenberg Sweeper. This gun is based on the Thompson, the main mobster weapon in America during the 1920s. The pack also features a wide arrange of new suits.

Rockstar Games is now strcitly aiming at the large numbers of cheaters in Grand Theft Auto Online. Rockstar is now giving several penalties to the cheaters and advices to players attacked and suffered from cheats.

My fellow Wikians/Wikiers on GTA Wiki. So, as you know Rockstar announced a while back about possible Story Mode updates for 2014. The question I want to ask you guys: what do you want included in the Story Mode updates? Me, personally, I wouldn't mind a couple more heists, missions spanning to North Yankton, more missions involving the backstory of M, F, and T-revor, and alot more stuff implemented (ADD RESTAURANTS!!!). So, restating thesis question: what do you want added in GTA V's Story mode update?Read more >

Hey guys and welcome to the Weekly news with VaultBoy, Thomas and Mikey. Here is your news for the week starting Monday 6th January 2014.
GTA Online players have lately been discussing leaked information about the possibility of mansions being brought in to GTA Online to go as properties along with more apartments and even penthouses. If rumors are true, it is likely mansions will be cost around the million dollar mark.
On 31st December, Rockstar Games verified and congratulated few amazing Youtube channels for their creativity and awesomeness inventions with the Content Creator. Here are few of them.
- The Youtube channel Gaming Horsemen, members of the The Last Rising Crew, use the concept of skipping stones across the water to create some semi-aquatic motorbike madness with a series of ramps and a fleet of motorcycles. As you can see, it's a very creative challenge but not so easy as it looks!

Hey guys and welcome to this Monday's wiki news.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was released last week for IOS devices. I just want to give everyone who gets it good luck at beating the Wrong Side of the Tracks mission on your phone/tablet.
The beta of the GTA V content creator was released last week as well and so far, nearly 10,000 races and deathmatches have been made by players. Some are good and some are bad. Personally, I've made about 6, 5 deathmatches and 1 race, some are ok and some are quite good.
Anyway, not a lot to report on this week but I'll leave you with a question. If the world was about to end and only you and one GTA character could be saved, who would you chose? Have fun with the question and I'll check back at the answers everyday. Bye!Read more >

Of course, the staff here have done an amazing job, but other non-staff users have also helped make this wiki what it is. I think we should have some sort of celebration but unfortunatly we can't get everyone in a place at the same time. Here is a list of users that I think lately have done a great job.

September 17 has passed and Take Two finally reveals the results of Grand Theft Auto V's launch, and Rockstar can be very proud.
According to IGN, Grand Theft Auto V made $8oo million in day one, thus becoming the biggest entertainment launch of all time, almost twice the amount of money made by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
It should be noted that GTAV is yet to launch in Japan or Brazil, so expect this number to grow even bigger. On another note, one analyst said he thinks V will make $1 billion by the end of September - I guess he was right.
GTA V grossed $1 billion in three days, breaking the record set by Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (the same amount of money in 15 days).Read more >
So, guys, after a couple of days,all reviewers voiced their opnion on, and gave scores to, GTA V (well, at least the reviewers I give a fuck to).
GTA V currently holds a score of 97-98 on MetaCritic (previously 99, thanks again, Escapist), and 96+ on GameRankings.

We're also taking requests from the viewers in the chat, so join us on the stream and let us know what you want to see.
See you tomorrow!Read more >
The day has come and first reviews are arrving to tell one thing: GTA V is probably the greatest game in history.
- IGN's Keza gave the game a 10, saying "No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem."
- Edge is very pleased with another 10, saying "No one makes worlds like Rockstar, but at last it has produced one without compromise. Everything works. It has mechanics good enough to anchor games of their own, and a story that is not only what GTA has always wanted to tell but also fits the way people have always played it. It’s a remarkable achievement, a peerless marriage of world design, storytelling and mechanics that pushes these ageing consoles to the limit and makes it all look easy."
- PS official magazine also gave 10, and so does the Xbox magazine.
- PlayStation LifeStyle, another 10.
- VideoGamer also gave 10, saying "Unless you play it for yourself, it's near impossible to grasp how big GT…

It's less than a week to the D-day, the day when we'll finally be able to play the "next big thing" in gaming, GTA V. The fansite Rockstar Nexus has added some leak photos, with the premission of the Brady games strategy guide of the game map.
It's estimated this map has around 22 safehouses around the map. And if you think this map is tiny in any way, here is another pic
This is a calculation by a person by the username of Yosik on Reddit. He estimated that map will be bigger than the map of GTA San Andreas, GTA IV, and Red Dead Redemption together, with still room to spare. And last, but not least, the Xbox cover (or at least that's Rockstar Nexus thinks it is) of the new game.
Rockstar Nexus says that this looks like the back cover of the box for Xbox games, but since this photo was taken/made before the actual release of the game, the legitimacy can't be confirmed.

It seems the Rockstar Games has hired real Gangsters and criminals to do voice acting for the upcoming GTA V.This information is reaveled when GTA's DJ,Lazlow Jones spoke on Chicago's WGN Radio Station,saying
"We get these guys in to record gang characters because we don't want a goofy LA actor who went to fancy school trying hard to be a gang member.There's nothing worse than that,so just go find the real terrifying people and say can you come in here please?"
"El Salvadorian gang dudes with amazing tattoos,one which has literally had gotten out of prison the day before"
"I wouldn't say that,so we say, OK,say what you will say.Authemticity you know?
Rockstar sent someone to find a few gang members.One thing about normal voice actors in the prevoius GTA games(San Andreas is a good example where it has alot of gangsters)is they use normal voice actors to do the gangster styled voice.Most of the times,it is scripted and does not sound really realistic.With gang members doing voice acting …Read more >
We all knew that GTA V will be the next big game, but who knew it would cost so much?
According to the Scottish media outlet, The Scotsmen, some of the creative heads of GTA V stated that Rockstar had spent roughly 170 million pounds ($265 million USD) to develop, produce and market Grand Theft Auto V with a staff of over 300 designers, artists, programmers, mappers and modelers. "That's about equivalent to a moderately budgeted Hollywood blockbuster", claims Gaming Blend author, William Usher.
Despite having the most bloated budget in video game history, Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games are confident that it will sell like crazy. GTA V has been poised by analysts that it will surpass sales of Call of Duty: Ghosts, and according to the Scotsman article, Rockstar isn't too worried about costs since the newest game in the GTA series is poised to make $1 billion before the year is out, with an estimate of more than 25 million SKUs to be shipped to retailers around the world.
