GTA News Roundup

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 09:48 AM MDT | By Neil
I don't think you need me to tell you there's been little news on the GTA front as of late, but since there's been a few, minor stories worth noting, this roundup is here to clarify a number of things.

Firstly, Grand Theft Auto on PlayStation Portable. Online retailer EBGames has been advertising a date of May 15, 2005 on their website. Unfortunately, several sources within the games media have seen this as 'inside information' leading them to believe that a date has been confimed to the retailer by Rockstar. Further confusion arose when a few Grand Theft Auto fansites posted that Gamespot.com were showing the same date on their gamespace. Well, the bad news is that Gamespot and EBGames' databases are linked, whatever date EBGames posts will appear on the Gamespot website, and whatever screenshots Gamespot post will appear on the EBGames website. Also, it should be taken into account that it is not unknown for retailers to place incredibly speculative dates online in order to receive media coverage and thus, boost preorder numbers and sales.

We may, however, find out details of the PSP Grand Theft Auto later this week when Take 2 Games report their First Quarter Fiscal 2005 results on Thursday. These press statements are mainly aimed at investors, but often contain details on forthcoming games. The last time Take 2 reported, we received release dates for the Xbox and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, so keep your eyes peeled on GTAGaming for all the latest news this Thursday.

Keeping with the PC version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, top games magazine PC Gamer claim to have a 'first look' feature on the game in their next issue, which hits stores on May 5th. (Thanks RCAgent!). We'll bring any information about the game as soon as it's available.

Finally, there's no news on the next Grand Theft Auto game. Gamesradar claimed to have insight into Take 2's trademark registrations, but their article was riddled with inaccuracies and their predictions of Grand Theft Auto: Tokyo and Bogota are completely false.

Yeah, I checked my calendar and I was wondering if these .... actually check their calendars before sending out bogus crap about Grand Theft Auto. Just like san andreas so much bogus crap out there. May 15 is a Sunday, no way that is the official date. Thursday Rockstar should announce the date officially. considering now it is March 1st.... may 15 is a bogus date false dont believe it.

lmao This is about the GTA PSP release date. Should be an official announcement tomorrow, Im hoping please Take Two Rockstar. I already have my copy preordered at game crazy. Once they announce the release date, people will go bonkers trying to preorder, plus there are only 1 million PSP handhelds on march 24th. 1up.com is giving away free PSP handhelds every day this month...

whats to get excited about though, it's only for the psp and most people don't like playing gta games on a crappy hand held console, most people prefer playing gta games on their tv screen, end of the day rockstar are just wasting their time making a gta game for the psp cause not many people are interested

most gta games are crappy on hand helds but i think alot of people will get this considering it will look like a ps2 gta and its not a birds eye view game, and you could hook up the psp to a tv to play it on a tv screen if you really wanted to
