Grand Theft Auto IV Trophy Patch Released Early from RockStar!

250°
321w ago - It appears that RockStar have released the patch early, possibly to reduce strain on the servers.

To quote: So when RockStar says "Monday the 27th of October" it seems they actually mean "the evening of Sunday the 26th."

The GTA IV trophy patch is now live and ready to be downloaded worldwide.

So if you're not too busy exploring Africa, the Ishimura or Rapture, why not have another go around Liberty City?

Keep in mind that you'll have to start a new game as the trophies are not retroactive. But was anyone really expecting them to be?
 

Reggae man sues Rockstar, Take-Two for Copyright in GTA IV

50°
328w ago - Looks like trouble never sleeps in Liberty City, indeed. This time around, it's a music copyright lawsuit that's filed against Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV, particularly on the songs played on the in-game radio station.

Jamaican Linton White alleged in his complaint that the reggae song "Last Night" making its rounds on the GTA IV (Xbox 360, PS3) airwaves care of the reggae station, Massive B Sound System 96.9, was actually co-written by him with one David Brooks (aka "Mavado"). Apart from that song, there's also "Bullet Proof Skin", which he says he co-wrote with Brooks and Rodney Basil price.

Although Linton was recognized and credited as a producer on Mavado's Gangsta for Life album (2007), his beef is that he was not credited for co-authorship on the said tracks in the Liberty City Guidebook that comes along with a copy of the sandbox title.

Linton's complaint states that:

In the... Liberty City Guidebook... [Take-Two and Rockstar] designate D. Brooks and B. Konders as the writers of "Last Night." ...[Take-Two and Rockstar] designate D. Brooks and R. Price as the writers of Bullet Proof Skin." No designation is made of plaintiff as a writer.

Reportedly, plaintiff Linton is demanding for US$ 150,000, plus punitive damages and other fees. In Rockstar...
 

Has Rockstar abandoned the PSP?

50°
329w ago - A funny thing happened a couple of months ago. After completing the PSP version of God of War, developer Ready At Dawn Studios posted a matter-of-fact news story on their site about how they were packing up their dev kits and sending them back to Sony.

The company behind one of the must-play games on the PSP was giving up on the system completely. Around the same time, Sony itself announced a new partnership program where universities could buy up PSP and PS2 development kits on the cheap. It would seem that Ready At Dawn isn't the only studio giving up on the system.

Presumably, there is an assembly line at Sony headquarters where the old dev kits are repackaged for uni students. Maybe they throw in some typical student freebie favourites in the box, like free condoms, and booklets about doing drugs responsibly.

At any rate, this phase-out is already being felt at retail. There are fewer and fewer new PSP and PS2 games going on sale. Or in the case of the PS2, at least, fewer titles any self-respecting gamer would play. The line-up for both systems at E3 was pitiful – developers are abandoning Sony's older systems. And now Rockstar is joining the club. This iconoclastic software house has been a huge supporter of the PSP, bringing hit games...
 

Max Payne 3 and New PS3 Exclusive Coming From Rockstar?

50°
330w ago - Perhaps you've noticed that our October issue of EGM is on its way out the doors of 1UP Manor and into your homes, and perhaps that bit of knowledge has left you wondering what's waiting for you in everyone's favorite section of the magazine: Quartermann!

Well, since we know how much you love getting your monthly taste of gaming gossip, we're giving a sneak peek at some of the hottest rumors in this month's Qmann column.

We've been hearing for months that Max Payne 3 is in the works, but this month we got something a bit juicier to add to this rumor: Original Max Payne developers Remedy Entertainment are currently too busy working on Alan Wake to even consider developing the new Payne sequel. Instead, the next-gen noir shooter will be handled by the same internal Rockstar team that created The Warriors.

And perhaps even more exciting, we've got word that Rockstar is still hard at work on an unannounced PlayStation 3 exclusive. Who's making it? Why, just the guys behind a little-known Rockstar release from earlier in the year....

But that's not all, loose-lip addicts. Remember earlier this summer when LucasArts finally announced Star Wars: The Clone Wars -- Lightsaber Duels, the lightsaber-wielding Wii game that everyone had...
 

Cool New Rockstar Game in the Works

50°
334w ago - Rockstar is working on a new game based on a 'cool' license, according to the latest issue of the Official PlayStation magazine.

There is no mention of what it is or whether it's PlayStation 3-exclusive, but this certainly has Team PlayStation Beyond well and truly stumped.

We would have suggested LA Noire if it weren't for the key word 'new'. It could be well off the mark, but to make guesswork of the quote, we're assuming it's a snowboarding game, hence the term 'cool'.

After all, many scoffed at the announcement of Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis and then ate their words when it turned out to be a brilliant sports title from the Grand Theft Auto developer. We'll keep our eyes peeled!
