As we are used already, Rockstar knows how to promote their products. There is around a year now since we have seen the first official trailer for GTA V. Now Rockstar simply posted on their official website this picture:
This picture has been posted by a journalist who has been invited to Rockstar's headquarters in New York City to check out Grand Theft Auto V.
This just in...
Rockstar Games released an article in which they responded to a few questions for their fans. The staff replied to a few questions related to Max Payne 3.
A fan answered why Rockstar doesn't give more news about GTA V.
Well in my opinion they are waiting for the buzz to set up and they will be throwing a screenshot every now and then to create an even bigger buzz. This is a marketing strategy and it's very good for the preorders ... whenever they will be available.
Rockstar replied to that question by saying that they really care about their fans but they don't have pretty much to say about the game since it is in the making and they do not want to give bad informations to the public. However they felt that the pressure is huge from the public so they released two exclusive screenshots. Actually they are the first screenshots for GTA V since the announcement trailer came up.
So until now the official content we have on GTA V are the announcement trailer and the following screenshots.
In an earlier article we announced that Rockstar should release some news regarding GTA V in the next few months. But that's what a Rockstar official said in February. It's the end of June and still no news about GTA V exept that announcement trailer we got last year.
But something strange happened in the meanwhile. A Grand Theft Auto fan posted a message on the official GTA forums regarding the so expected GTA V news. He asked Rockstar why aren't they releasing any new updates on GTA Vand if they were lying about it. And the response came from a Rockstar official and he said there are no new updates for now but by saying 'in the next few months' they meant it could pass more than 8 months until future GTA V updates and that developing a game takes a little over 4 years. GTA IV was released in April 2008 for consoles and December 2008 for PC. Does that mean we are getting closer to the GTA V release as we hinted and Rockstar is just letting the fans to create the buzz and then release the news in the last weeks of GTA V development?
Here is a screenshot of the conversation between the GTA fan and a guy from the Rockstar Support team:
What do you think about Rockstar's GTA V news policy? Do you think it's the time that they should release some news?
Now it's official! EA Sports just announced the release date for FIFA 13. A few days earlier we presented you the cover for FIFA 13 which features FC Barcelona's player, Lionel Messi.
Now EA has let us know that FIFA 13 is coming on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PSVita and Wii on 25th september in North America and 29th september in Europe. Users who will pre-order the game will get an exclusive extra in-game content. Even though you can make pre orders EA only posted informations about the console versions (which is getting them the most amount of money) but that doesn't mean the game will not come on PC.
EA is as usual concentrating on consoles but PC users should also be happy because since FIFA 12 the game is next gen just like it has been on consoles for years.
FIFA 13 featuring First Touch Control, Attacking Intelligence and many more new technologies introduced ...
So with that being said are you going to pre order FIFA 13?
We posted in an article some while ago a unfinished version of the cover for FIFA 13 which featured Lionel Messi. Forget about it. This has just been announced as the official cover for FIFA 13 and will feature the same Lionel Messi but in a new setup.
Just for the record here is the old (unfinished) version of the cover for the PS3 version of FIFA 13:
The new one looks much better and i think Messi it's the best player that could be featured on the cover of FIFA 13. EA made a major move and because Messi's contract with Konami (Pro Evolution Soccer) expired Electronic Arts acted fast and signed the best football player in the world.
Many are wondering why another player hasn't been featured on the cover of FIFA 13. Well Kaka, because many are wondering already has been in the menu of FIFA 12 and he isn't the same player as he used to be at AC Milan. Rooney has been featured on the cover for a few years in a row and Ronaldo well i think it's useless to say that he signed with Konami.
So (without starting a war here between Messi and Ronaldo fans) FIFA 13 already has the best football player on it's cover but will it succeed to be the best football game as well? We will see.
