Grand Theft Auto Online video and info coming this Thursday

Rockstar to release a new gameplay video for Grand Theft Auto Online on August 15.

Rockstar Games will release a gameplay video and new information about Grand Theft Auto V's upcoming online mode on August 15, the company has announced.

Grand Theft Auto Online was briefly teased at the end of the company's previous Grand Theft Auto V trailer, showing dozens of players roaming around the city of Los Santos. Rockstar has previously confirmed that footage for previous trailers has been captured from the PlayStation 3 version of GTAV.

The game could sell as many as 20 million copies before the end of March 2014, according to Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia.

Grand Theft Auto V will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17. The petition to bring the game to the PC has now passed 200,000 signatures.

"The game could sell as many as 20 million copies by the end of September."


Just figured I'd make that statement a lil more realistic.

@pongley Said the person watching the count of a pointless petition.

The game is gonna come to PC, just like EVERY OTHER GTA (with the obvious exception of handheld releases)

@pongley@VenkmanPHDThey don't care for facts that much these days. GS is not what it used to be but sadly the alternatives are as bad.

@RockingSt4r: Question, have you watched the WatchDog serie gameplay trailer... are they trying to copy GTAV?

@Gamesfetch: I know that, buh its just when i watched the serie trailer, they had to get a woman's voice to talk throughout the whole gameplay of watchdogs... sounded more like they were copying Grand theft auto V.

10am Eastern Standard Time. (US).

I think that is 3pm British Summer Time (UK).

Although I could be wrong with the time difference, it is certainly 10am in East USA.

@punksterdaddy @garysingh34 I hate time conversions like this.

We should all operate on a single 23:59 timeframe that is singular worldwide.

The idea of timezones is as stupid as daylight savings and a 12-hour clock.

@VenkmanPHD @punksterdaddy @garysingh34 As a pain as it may be we can't get rid of timezones. Here's an example. Let's say we use Greenwich time. It's 14:00 worldwide, yet for some it's evening, morning and so on. That would mean that some will have breakfast at 23:00. The way we measure days currently does not permit us a removal of time zones. It's easier like it is now.

Yeah I agree,

Dr. Venkman, as annoying as time zones are it is far easier this way.

My problem with it is this...

Around 150 years ago the world's governments came together to end this exact confusion, because believe it or not, it was once worse than this.

I live in the UK and the time difference between here and London is quite large. In the summer, our days are longer and in Winter they are shorter.

Before the boom of trains, we had many time zones and you had to miss ten minutes here and there if you travelled on them. Until they made the whole UK as one time zone, to be controlled by Grenwich Observatory.

This is what annoy's me now, the World Leaders all voted that Grenwich would be the International time zone on which all clocks were based upon.

Which still continues today.

Yet we have this new issue with the internet, that all times are now based in EST or WST and all that crap above, now goes out of the window.

If they want to state things in East American times that is fine but also do it in Grenwich Mean Time (GMT), so that the rest of the world can tell what time it is actually on at!?

@pongley @Gamer3344 @steve216 Very true, but that's why I buy these games 2wice.

Once to play and have fun (console)
And once to mod the hell out of it (PC, obviously)

My main issue is my video card right now... I hate PC gaming for all the upgrades you have to keep up with... But in the end it's kinda worth it.
