Grand Theft Auto V hasn’t technically been announced yet, but we can probably safely assume when it is, it will be for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. But with all the rumors flying around that Nintendo is starting to ramp up their next console behind the scenes, third parties are bound to be getting their hands on the console. One of those third parties may be Rockstar Games.
Rockstar Games is a big deal on the the 360 and PlayStation 3, so it’s no surprise that if Nintendo was pushing for the hardcore, it would be a big name to go after. And supposedly they have with GameKyo claiming that the developer already has dev kits for the new platform and is hoping to have Grand Theft Auto V as a launch title. Of course how far after this hits the 360 and PS3 version, who can say. Nintendo’s next platform is rumored to be hitting late 2012.
But again, rumor, rumor, rumor!

Rockstar’s L.A. Noire gets another trailer, although it’s less of a promotional video like the past ones and more like a standard trailer. If you’ve seen any of the previous trailers, nothing really new to see here. ‘There’s a case! Show interrogation! He messed up! Cut to some one yelling at you!’ Don’t get me wrong, I’m really interested in L.A. Noire. The trailers are just getting kind of repetitive.
Either way, if you’re looking forward to the title, L.A. Noire is launching on the 17th next month in North America and the 20th in Europe. You’ll be able to pick the title up on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

With Red Dead Redemption catching Game of the Year awards all over, Rockstar Games has a lot to live up to with their next title, L.A. Noire.
The stand out feature of L.A. Noire are its facial animations. If you have seen a trailer, you know what I mean. If not, definitely watch the video after the jump. Not only does it create a realistic sense of characters, but it plays into the gameplay as well. Interrogating and questioning suspects and witnesses will have a heavy reliance on being able to read their faces.
The video also covers some minor gun play, mission structure, and more. Be sure to check it out after the jump!

As mentioned in yesterday’s Vlog, Take-Two confirmed that Red Dead Redemption won’t be making its April release and is being pushed back till May 18th.
Take Two said that the title was delayed to launch during a more suitable time peroid, but Rockstar Games explained that the delay is due to needing to polish the game up a bit more before launch.
Hopefully that extra time put into the title will be worth the wait.

Take Two announced that Rockstar Games’ Max Payne 3 won’t arrive till at least August 2010. The title was originally planned to be in the early 2010 rush, whether it be for development reasons or to avoid the rush is unknown.
In the mean time though, Take Two is still releasing a few quality titles between now and mid 2010 including BioShock 2 and Red Dead Redemption.
Shawn Lee, composer for Bully and The Getaway, was asked about what games he will be composing for in the future. Apparently Mr. Lee didn’t realize the next iteration of Bully has yet to be announced and answered “It looks like I will be doing the soundtrack for Bully 2 in the not so distant future…”
Marked under a rumor just in case, but I think this pretty much confirms that a sequel is on the way.

A new update to Grand Theft Auto 4 on the PC revealed that The Lost and Damned is on its way. The latest update to the game included a list of achievements relating to the title. Along side the achievements the update also includes more customizable controls and a few fixes for the game’s multiplayer.
As of right now both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony are X-box 360 exclusives, so its nice to see more Grand Theft Auto 4 players get to experience the content. I’m crossing my fingers that PlayStation 3 owners will eventually see the content as well.
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City manual has a ad inside of it that says “Liberty City is over! Next stop!…” and the rest of the ad is ripped out. It is probably pretty obvious that it is saying that Liberty City is over most likely because The Ballad of Gay Tony just came out, which I’m assuming is the last time GTA will be set in Liberty City. I personally can’t tell if theres any other hidden clues here or not, but maybe you guys can see something.
