GTA and Violent Games

Quick! I don't have much time!

News has just broke (which then broke Twitter) regarding a release date for Grand Theft Auto V. All the POS that stated Spring were obviously based on a dream that they could get the game finished and out before the Summer. Sadly, this won't be the case, and further more could have a knock on effect with the next generation consoles which are likely to be announced at/just before E3 2013.

The full post, including Rockstar's official statement can be found here.

Another quick link to show you is this one. EA boss-man John Riccitiello has defended videogames in light of further comments from US Senators regarding violent games and the effect they have on children/adults. Sadly, as much as I'd like to blog further on this issue today I don't have the time (currently filming). However I did blog about this subject a few months ago, of which you can read here.

Defending violent games and a GTA V release date on the same day? Coincidence?
