Gamers queuing for GTA V midnight launch robbed at gunpoint

Armed robbers have held up a GameStop and its customers who were queuing for the midnight launch of Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

At around 9.30pm Monday, local time, three masked men entered the Texan store and held everyone at gunpoint, reports the ABC. The criminals tasered one customer then took everyone's money and phones, and cleaned out the store's cash register.

A store clerk was able to place a tracking device in the bag with the cash, but it appears the crooks found and disposed of it shortly after fleeing the scene.

A fix is coming for Grand Theft Auto 5's CE-32937-4 error

Rockstar is rushing to patch a bug that is preventing some gamers from playing GTA Online on console.

The bug appears to only be affecting those who haven’t played GTA Online this year, and throws up the following error when they attempt to log in: "No previous Grand theft Auto Online data is associated with your Social Club account."

The bug is also blocking attempts to transfer Grand Theft Auto 5 profiles to new-gen consoles.

"Obscene" Dragon Age: Inquisition pulled in India

"Obscene" Dragon Age: Inquisition pulled in India

Electronic Arts has pulled Dragon Age: Inquisition from store shelves in India due to the country's obscenity laws.

Dragon Age: Inquisition allows players to engage in same-gender relationships if they choose, and it was initially believed that this was the so-called "obscene" content in question.

Indian TV station NDTV reported that the game's local distributor, Milestone Entertainment, pulled the game due to its same-sex relationships.

In December, 2013, India's Supreme Court reinstated Section 377 of the Indian penal code, which declared homosexuality to be a criminal offense punishable by up to ten years in jail. The code had been suspended in 2009.

However, an EA spokesperson has since told Kotaku that the game's same-gender romances weren't the reason for suspending sales of the game.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare doesn’t currently support the PlayStation 4’s new Share Play feature, but it might in the future.

Share Play was launched a week ago, and allows players to create a co-op play session with an online friend, without that friend having to own or download the game.

However, as shown by Advanced Warfare, it won’t be supported by every game.

Online multiplayer is finally coming to Trials Fusion via a free update later this year.

The online mode will allow up to eight players to race at once, and was built from scratch rather than extrapolated from the singleplayer as was the case in the last game.

“We’ve learned from and improved upon the online multiplayer in Trials Evolution,” RedLynx creative director Antti Ilvessuo explained on the Ubisoft blog.

First-person mode confirmed for Grand Theft Auto V on new-gen and PC

Grand Theft Auto V on new-gen and PC will feature a first-person mode, Rockstar has confirmed.

First-person mode will be available both in the campaign and online, and is an old idea Rockstar could only execute with new-gen power and time on its hands.

“I don’t think we could’ve put it in the [last-gen version] because we were too busy making the game,” animation director Rob Nelson told IGN. “We were too busy working on our third-person controls and the missions.”

Does COD: Advanced Warfare use dedicated servers?

Advanced Warfare dedicated servers questioned following connection problem reports

Reports of problems with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's online modes have seen Sledgehammer Games reiterate that the game does indeed use dedicated servers.

Issues being reported on Twitter, Reddit, NeoGAF, and the COD forums include connection issues, lag, and poor hit-detection.

It's not yet clear how widespread these problems are.

"Advanced Warfare employs game servers hosted at data centers globally on all platforms and listen servers as part of our proprietary matchmaking system,” wrote Sledgehammer Games co-founder Michael Condrey on the studio’s official site.

“Our goal is to ensure the best possible connection and greatest gameplay experience regardless of location and time of day."
