GTA V coming to XBox 360 and PS3 spring 2013

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012- ... k-suggests

Grand Theft Auto 5 will launch during spring 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, publisher Take-Two has confirmed.

The news backs up multiple leaks from retail sources, below.

There's yet another piece of fresh artwork, too.

"Grand Theft Auto 5 is the largest and most ambitious title in the series to date," a statement on Take-Two's investor site noted.

"Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto 5 delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean."

Submarine level confirmed?

UPDATE #1: The Brighton branch of GAME has also published a similar picture of Grand Theft Auto 5 artwork on Twitter, again showing a spring 2013 release date.

The promotional material shows off a new set of artwork for the game, including a female cop arresting a blonde woman, and a gun-toting man on a quad bike.

Rumor has it the game will have 3 playable characters


Vice City and SA HD also expected soon.

Dude... What the hell is happenin to you? You're becomin a totally different person than I thought you were, and I might just have to catch a flight over and stamp on your Vita to teach you a lesson... Then again, you did get a Vita so you could get Liberation... I suppose you're still cool. You're on thin ice though. VERY thin ice. Ice so thin that Kanye West could hide his dick behind it. So watch out. Watch out like a kid not cryin or poutin coz Santa's comin in less than two months. Ya get me blad?

Yeah, hopefully they can get it up by next week. There's also going to be a Game Informer cover story next week with lots of new information, really looking forward to it.

A former backing singer for hip hop group Cypress Hill has lost a $250 million lawsuit against Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar and parent company Take-Two.

Michael "Shagg" Washington claimed that his likeness and life story had been used to inspire the character of Carl "CJ" Johnson in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

That was two years ago. This week, Washington's case was finally settled by a California appeals court - which decided in Rockstar's favour.

Washington was not able to prove that the character of CJ was based on his own likeness, Hollywood Reporter has said.

That's despite Washington revealing he had been interviewed by Rockstar prior to San Andreas' release and discussed details of his former life as a gang member. His name appears in the game's credits as a model.

"[The] plaintiff is relying entirely on CJ's physical appearance in the game, but that appearance is so generic that it necessarily includes hundreds of other black males," Washington was told by a Superior County judge.

Evidence such as directly-copied tattoos, birthmarks or other physical features would have been necessary to prove his case, he was told.

US law supports the "transformative" use of images - when protected material has been sufficiently changed it no longer belongs to the original owner.

It follows a similar court decision last month, when Activision was found to have been in breach of contract for using the likeness of No Doubt signer Gwen Stefani in music game Band Hero. The case was raised during the Washington-Rockstar trial.

"The court in [the case brought by] No Doubt concluded that the defendant's literal depictions of the plaintiffs were not transformative because 'the No Doubt avatars... perform rock songs, the same activity by which the band achieved and maintains its fame'.

"Here, however, Washington has presented no evidence demonstrating that the plot or characters of GTA: San Andreas have any relevance to his life or his purported fame."

Details on the game but chance of being fake coming from a Gamefaqs poster....

You play as Albert DeSilva a half American half Puerto Rican
He is 42 years old and has an ex-wife and two kids
The show Breaking Bad has a little influence on the game, as Albert is drawn to the life of crime from an older age for the money
You also play as Dougie Vejo a younger criminal just coming up in Los Santos
Los Santos is the only large city, smaller towns round out the countrtyside
Grove Street makes a return, however Carl and Sweet are not in the game
Money plays a large part as Albert lost most of his in a ponzi like scheme
Property buying is back
The only customization for characters are clothes/hair/facial hair. no gyms or tattoos
one or more characters from 4 may show up
car customization is back, seems more fitting for Dougie however Albert may be going through a midlife crisis
the triumphant return of Lovefist!!! or as the band is now known as the Jezzies
Songs confirmed so far: My Michelle-Guns and Roses, Magic Power- Triumph, California Dreaming - The beach boys and Beautiful-Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell
New mini games include golf, tennis and surfing
Mission played was called "Alimony" featured the scene from the trailer in which they rob the jewelry store
Robbery returns only for Dougie, dispensaries are a large source of cash income
You can switch between Albert and Dougie by holding down the back button(360)
Game autosaves at that point
Stinger makes a return
Speculated not confirmed Aziz Ansari voices radio DJ for current hip-hop station
