The widely popular Grand Theft Auto game is back with another installment.
It’s been five-years since Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) hit the scene, and now fans of the life-like video game can’t wait to get their hands on Grand Theft Auto V.
Los Santos: a sprawling metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap cable TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals risk everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
Wikipedia Game Synopsis-
The narrative of the game follows three characters with interconnected stories. Michael is a retired former bank robber in his early forties who lives with his dysfunctional family on the proceeds of his former life in the upper-class suburb of Rockford Hills, based on Beverly Hills. Trevor, his former partner in crime, lives alone in a trailer in the desert of Blaine County, where his reckless and psychopathic behaviors are fueled by drug addiction. Franklin makes a living in Vespucci Beach—based on Venice Beach—as a repo man for an unscrupulous Armenian car dealership. The three acquaintances are drawn into Los Santos’ criminal underworld “in the pursuit of the almighty American dollar”. According to Dan Houser, each of the protagonists is unlike any primary character that has appeared in a Grand Theft Auto title to date: Michael represents a protagonist who “won” and is now trying to adjust to life after his story has come to an end; Trevor is styled after a supporting character who has been re-cast in the role of protagonist; and Franklin is someone who has had no real exposure to a life of crime until the events of the game, and his attempts to avoid such a life end up thrusting him into the middle of it.
Grand Theft Auto V hits shelves September 17, 2013. The game is available for pre-order now. Visit http://www.rockstargames.com/V for more information.

Looks like Michael Jackson fans will be able to emulate the late singer’s dance moves in the very near future. The Ubisoft corporation announced their plans for a MJ inspired video game on June 15. As of right now, the game is set to be released just in time for the holidays. The game will allow fans, old and new, the opportunity to copy some of Jackson’s signature moves. Gamers will also get the chance to test their vocal skills to many of Jackson’s hit songs.
Jackson’s estate co-executor John McClain has this to say about the King of Pop and the video game,
“No artist can energize a dance floor in the spirit of fun like Michael Jackson. His God-given gifts for music and dance are something new generations of fans will appreciate even more. This game is a natural extension of what he would be doing today to raise his artistry to even greater heights for his fans of all generations. It is a game that the entire family can experience and enjoy together and this is something that would please Michael tremendously.”
“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to develop a game based on the songs and moves of one of the world’s most incredible performers of all time,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft. “We expect the game to bring Michael Jackson fans, families and friends together with the energetic song and dance of The King of Pop.”
