Grand Theft Auto V – PS3/PS4 Comparison Trailer Revealed!

IGN has released a second trailer in their three day coverage of the next-gen version of GTA V! The video shows the drastic visual leap between the two generations of GTA V.

Like yesterday, IGN details their impressions of the next-gen version and discussed the upgrades with Rockstar Games art director Aaron Garbut.

This isn’t GTA peeking its head into the new generation; this is GTA kicking down the door and cartwheeling directly into the epicentre of the party

We are in the closing stretch now ladies and gentleman. GTA V is a mere 3-4 days away from release (depending where you are in the world). It is with this excitement that Rockstar have updated their official GTA V website with the final four slots of the Visitor’s Travelogue.

Lovely Accommodations

Sponsored by the Blaine County Board of Tourism – watch their new commercial ‘My Blaine County’ – and browse a range of living options to suit your lifestyle from single-family homes in the heart of Los Santos, to rural mobile trailers in Blaine to a dream mini-mansion in Rockford Hills.

The commercial features the hilarious talents of Danny McBride, better known from Eastbound and Down as Kenny Powers!

Sightseeing & Celebrity

Faded starlets, troubled celebutantes and aggressive, costumed street performers – you never know who you’re going to bump into on Vinewood Boulevard. Come see the sights and sounds for yourself, or jump aboard the Vinewood Star Tours bus to have a struggling actor narrate as you take a guided tour of the landmarks and homes of the rich and famous while sitting on an un-airconditioned bus.

24-Hour Conveniences Stores

You’ll find the roads of Los Santos and Blaine County packed with accommodating convenience and liquor stores, open around the clock for your last minute needs. Stop into your local 24/7, LTD service station or Rob’s liquor store – the tills are always filled with cash to serve you.

Opportunity for the Upwardly Mobile

This is a land of great opportunity. Cash is king in these parts – and ambitious and hard-working business people can make some big bucks if they know the right people and the right enterprise to get hooked up with…

Rockstar further went on to say:

Today’s official site update also reveals how you can enhance and extend your criminal career in Grand Theft Auto V with exclusive features strictly for members of the Rockstar Games Social Club

New Patrick Brown Art – Grand Theft Auto Legends 2012

It has been a satisfying year so far if you are a Rockstar Games fan. However since Max Payne 3’s release last month, news has been slow and the anticipation for new GTA V info has reached more than fever pitch.

So while it has been another slow news day, we have however been treated to yet another amazing piece of art by the GTA community artists-celeb, Patrick Brown.

I’ve been wanting to do my classic GTA legends for a while, I can’t believe it’s been 3 and a half years since my last one. SO here we go, I’ve got 10 protagonists here including Albert De Silva from the upcoming GTA V, they’re all just having a good time in (the new) San Andreas at Albert’s mansion on the hills of Vinewood… looks like Niko can’t handle how good GTA V looks compared to IV ;)

I couldn’t be more excited about this game! You can expect a lot of artwork from me based on GTA V :D

Here are the protagonists from left to right:
Toni Cipriani – Liberty City Stories
Claude Speed – GTA III
Carl Johnson – San Andreas
Niko Bellic – GTA IV
Victor Vance – Vice City Stories
Johnny Klebitz – Lost and Damned
Tommy Vercetti – Vice City
Luis Lopez – Ballad of Gay Tony
Huang Lee – Chinatown Wars
Albert De Silva – GTA V
