16w ago - Today RockStar has officially revealed the Grand Theft Auto Online PS3 gameplay in a new video trailer below!
To quote: Grand Theft Auto Online is a dynamic and persistent online world for 16 players that begins by sharing gameplay features, geography and mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V, but will continue to expand and evolve after its launch with new content created by Rockstar Games and the Grand Theft Auto community.
Grand Theft Auto Online takes the fundamental Grand Theft Auto concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and makes them available to multiple players in an incredibly detailed and responsive online world.
In Grand Theft Auto Online, players have the freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.
Players can invest in their character through customizing their appearance, improving their stats, owning customized vehicles, purchasing personal property, and taking part in missions, jobs and activities to earn reputation and cash to open up new opportunities to rise through the criminal ranks.

22w ago - Today RockStar shared a glimpse of the first Grand Theft Auto V PlayStation 3 gameplay in a trailer video below.
To quote: Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.
Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game's three lead characters, playing all sides of the game's interwoven story.

23w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared some new details on Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 3 today, as follows:
Los Santos is the biggest Grand Theft Auto city yet... and even that is an understatement. Spanning the city of Los Santos and the wide-open countryside of Blaine County, GTA V is larger than Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and the frontier world of Red Dead Redemption combined. What's more, it will all be fully open for you to explore from the very start of the game.
Three is the magic number
For the first time in a Grand Theft Auto game, you're not just playing as one character, but three - each with their own individual personalities and lives to live. You'll get to play missions as one character, combinations of two, and sometimes all three.
When you're not out on a mission, you can switch between these three leads in real time using the character wheel. While you're controlling one character, the other two will carry on with their daily lives, so you'll never know what you'll find the other characters getting up to when you jump between them.
Michael is an ex-bank robber, living a comfortable life under the witness protection programme thanks to a deal he made with the FIB (the game's version of...
