Rockstar Games has confirmed the worst kept secret in gaming history this year – The critically-acclaimed and record-breaking Grand Theft Auto V comes to a new generation this fall. That’s right folk’s – the Xbox One will receive its own version of the top selling game later this year. If you traded in your Xbox 360 and never quite finished the intense and violent stories of the three main characters – then you’re next shout is only a mere few months away!
Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC will take full advantage of the power of new generation systems to deliver the ultimate open-world experience. Previously leaked (or assumed) by many European retailers, we’ll keep you updated on the release date as soon as we hear of anything.
Grand Theft Auto V, was always destined to be a huge success and with it deservingly selling more copies than the latest Call of Duty on the Xbox 360 it was one of the best games of 2013! With some gamer’s having to sell their Xbox 360′s to fund an all important Xbox One purchase, it left those fellow gamers (and myself) distraught and inconsolable that we never got round to finishing the game. This is why We need Grand Theft Auto V to release on Xbox One alongside PC; to be able to sleep at night knowing that all characters stories have ended well…it is the only hope we have left if Rockstar Games can just make this happen!
…but for now, in our plight as we wait for the possible rumoured GTA V on Xbox One announcement – check out some funny Grand Theft Auto related Youtube videos you might never have seen if not for us posting today! Thank me later…

Long rumoured, not exactly confirmed in any official capacity, but an online retailer (well known in its locale) has started taking orders for Grand Theft Auto V on next gen platforms. This being Xbox One and PS4 with an image of the supposed box art as shown above.
GTA V for Xbox One is priced at around 1629 Czech Republic Karuna on SuperGamer which equals around £50.00 in GBP for UK gamers. A screengrab of the site in detail is shown below:
Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One, PS4 and PC are all likely to resemble each other very closely and feature more explicitly intricate detailing visually than what you see on Xbox 360 and PS3. It would be a great move to release such a massive title as this on our next-gen systems, so should anything get confirmed from Rockstar Games in the coming weeks, we’ll keep you posted.
Despite it’s flaws and maybe the most obvious of titles to be top of the played list this past week over Xbox LIVE, but GTA V has been confirmed as the most played title this week on the Xbox 360.

Five long years since the release of Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar Games deliver the next instalment of the franchise that centres on Los Santos, the LA-like virtual city with three very different gangster protagonists. Meet Michael, Trevor and Franklin – each with a shady past who are set on a journey that could change their lives completely. A criminal underworld waits in the stereotypical world of Grand Theft Auto V – all you need do is jump right on in!
Immediately the opening scenes are the learning curve for some new dynamics in GTA V as you take aim of both an improved auto-aim and cover system whilst getting to grips with switching between characters during gameplay – something that the later missions will require more of when you reach them. If for some very strange reason you are not familiar with Grand Theft Auto, the game is open world and in the third person allowing you to undertake gameplay missions in the order that you choose. For those who have waited five very long years for this – it shouldn’t be too disappointing as the interaction and environmental distractions have been hit on high voltage. Basically, it’s a massive improvement over GTA IV and the ability to switch between players is a completely new concept that really works well in the franchise as each player has their own set of skills. Although with their own unique story, their lives become entangled in the main plot that is to completely change their lives forever by undertaking six very dangerous bank heists. Heavy on the obscene language, filled with over-the-top-action it is hard not to enjoy a day in the life of a man with a plan to reap the rewards of a cash filled bank.
