GTA Online no longer works on 12GB PlayStation 3

You can no longer play GTA Online on a 12GB PlayStation 3, Rockstar has confirmed.

Last week’s Flight School update pushed the game beyond that system’s storage capacity, so now only singleplayer Grand Theft Auto V is available on such machines, and only if you aren’t connected to the internet.

“If not enough space is available on the system, hardware limitations will prevent players from accessing GTA Online,” said Rockstar.

“GTAV Story Mode will still be accessible by playing the game without being connected to PlayStation Network, and proceeding without additional updates.”

Rockstar has provided instructions for upgrading the PlayStation 3’s hard drive, so those affected can insert a larger drive and continue fragging fools online.

It’s a third-person single-player title that’s in development at Swedish studio Fatshark (War of the Roses).

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Patch 2.1 is out today

The first substantial content patch for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls on PC and Mac is now live.

Patch 2.1 brings a number of highly anticipated features, including Seasons, Leaderboards, Greater Rifts and scaling Legendary Gems, and a new Nephalem Rift tileset called The Cesspools.

Seasons work like Call of Duty Prestige levels. Periodically, players are able to reset their characters and artisans to level 1. By doing so, they will be able to access new unique Legendary items, achievements, and other rewards. Competing in Seasons will also allow players to climb new leaderboards.

Dragon Age: Inquisition features a four-player co-op multiplayer mode

Dragon Age: Inquisition features a four-player co-op multiplayer mode, BioWare has announced.

Three multiplayer campaigns will be available at launch, and each features levels randomly generated from a series of templates. The player will choose one of nine customisable heroes to play.

Naturally, Inquisition’s tactical camera can’t be used.

BioWare’s Scylla Costa told IGN that new heroes and levels would come to the co-op mode after release in the form of free DLC.

There will be microtransactions, although Costa said nothing is behind a paywall.

Minecraft PS4 fails Sony certification

The PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft has failed its final certification, making an August release unlikely.

Developer 4J Studios – which is responsible for all of the game’s console ports – revealed yesterday that Sony found flaws in what was to be the build that shipped to retail.

The Xbox One version of Minecraft is also supposed to release in August, although a date has yet to be announced.

Exosuits are optional in some Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer modes

It will be possible to play some Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s multiplayer modes without the exosuit, developer Sledgehammer has confirmed.

The exosuit is the biggest addition to the FPS franchise in years, and allows players to double-jump, boost dodge, deploy a shield, and more.

“We understand that some players may want to go back to the more traditional style [of Call of Duty],” Sledgehammer studio co-founder Michael Condrey told YouTube personality DVLZStation.
