GTA V Players Activate Secret Alien Mission via Game Files as Single-Player DLC Reports Resurface

[embedded content] Datamining group Chiliad Mystery Guru Team has managed to uncover and activate a secret alien mission in Grand Theft Auto Online through the game’s files. From what has been unearthed so far (video above), it seems to be a supply run mission involving alien eggs found near a crashed UFO. Triggering it is no easy task. According to a detailed Reddit post by the group, “much hard work” and sleepless nights went into tinkering with the game’s codes to get the mission to run and no one knows how to get it working normally. While Rockstar has made no comment and we’re not sure if this is how the final mission would have come out, it settles all those reports of the developer toying around with the concept. What’s particularly interesting, however, is that this discovery has raked up years worth of discussions surrounding the game’s single-player DLC, which reports say was shelved back in 2014. Apparently, an alien mission of some sort was included in the canned single-player content. “Given that online is set before the events of single player, I think we can safely assume that this (if anything) is the beginning of what may be added to single player!”…

Take-Two CEO Says The Company Is “Undermonetizing” Its Users

Speaking at the Cowen and Company 45th Annual Technology, Media & Telecom Conference today, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick talked about, among other things, microtransactions and said that while microtransactions are important to the company, they aren’t trying to nickel-and-dime players. You can’t give stuff away for free in perpetuity; there’s no business model in that. But we’re not trying to optimise the monetiziation of everything we do to the nth degree. My concern is, if you do that, the consumer knows. They might not even know that they know, but they feel it. Think about it anecdotally–when you paid a little too much for something, even if it was something really good, it really irks you. Paying too much for something bad is even worse. Paying too much for something really good, even if you can afford it, just leaves you with a bad feeling. We don’t want our consumers to ever feel that way. Zelnick continued to say that the company was intentionally “undermonetizing” it’s users. We are convinced that we are probably from an industry view undermonetizing on a per-user basis. There is wood to chop because I think we can do more, and READ FULL STORY AT…

GTA Online Gets the “Massive” Gunrunning Update in June

Calling it a “massive new update” where the Southern San Andreas’ illegal weapons trafficking industry rises to the surface, Rockstar Games has announced that the Gunrunning update for Grand Theft Auto Online will arrive in June. Here’s what Rockstar had to say about the Gunrunning update: Dotted throughout Blaine County are hatches – look into these mysterious properties on the Maze Bank Foreclosure site and you’ll find sprawling underground headquarters for sale, ready to be stocked with new military grade vehicles and weapons manufacturing equipment capable of developing highly sought after offensive and defensive technologies. As the residents of Los Santos know, the only thing more fun than crime is profit and should you choose to invest in this new business, some extremely shady customers are ready to pay top dollar for what you can deliver. Expect details on the business and research opportunities, full-service Mobile Operation Centers complete with new weapon upgrades and deep customization, all new Weaponized Vehicles, and more included in Gunrunning soon. As announced earlier this week, Grand Theft Auto V has reached 80 million copies sold since launch in 2013. [Source: Rockstar Games] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

GTAV Short Film Stars the Real Trevor

With PlayStation VR being released tomorrow, virtual reality has been on most gamers’ minds as of late. Though some are skeptical of VR gaming, it is hard to deny that it holds a lot of promise, especially if it can effectively transport us into our favorite gaming landscapes. But what happens if we enter a dangerous game world full of dangerous and volatile characters? This exact scenario is the basis for a new short film where a gamer who puts on the world’s most advanced VR headset gets to meet Grand Theft Auto V’s Trevor face to face. Trevor was voiced by and modeled after actor Steven Ogg who appears in this film. Though Trevor is the stand out character of GTAV, I doubt any sane person would actually want to hang out with him due to how unpredictable and violent he is. In this (extremely NSFW) film, a gamer sees what it is like to spend some time with Trevor inside of a simulated Los Santos. The results are exactly what you would expect. [embedded content] Outside of Trevor’s antics, this film does a fantastic job of capturing what it is like to play Grand Theft Auto V online. There…
