2005 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.
