Daily News - 27th October 2011 - GTA 5 and Battlefield 3 Fuck-ups

Grand Theft Auto 5 Is A Thing That's Happening!

Rockstar have announced what we all knew would be announced eventually, and said that they are making a Grand Theft Auto 5. Now normally an announcement isn't anything too special, but they also said that on November 2nd they'll reveal the first trailer for the game! I'm curious to see how they address the complaints they got for GTA IV, with that game being "too" realistic, although my suspition is that it will be just as story driven as GTA IV, with basically no changes to the formula at all... But that still will be a game I want to play.

Dunno quite how I feel about that logo

Battlefield 3 Playing PS3 Owners Just Got Screwed Over

Cast your mind back to E3, Sony's Jack Tretton is on stage and mentions that the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 will come with a free copy of Battlefield 1943. Fastforward to the Battlefield 3 launch and PS3 owners are kind of miffed to find absolutely NO copy of 1943 on their disc. Turns out, EA just decided not to put the game on the disc and not tell anyone. There have been plenty of chances since E3 to tell us this, literally months where any of the days in those months would have been a great time to tell us, but no. There a small consolation, in that PS3 owners will get Battlefield 3 DLC first, but really that's not going to make anyone happy in light of this. Poor show EA, poor show...

I'm still looking forward to the game, even despite EA handling shit so poorly
