An “exciting announcement” will be made by Son on May 15th at Silverstone Circuit. It shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering hints have been dropped previously. Mainly that of the Gran Turismo 6 dropping this year to PS3.
The three character trailers for Grand Theft Auto V has been released. The upcoming PS3 and Xbox 360 game will drop on September 17th. The three trailers highlights the game’s main protagonists: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor.
Gran Turismo 6 has been listed by retailers. The game has been listed for a PS3 release this coming November. The retailer that listed the game is Newegg.com. I would assume the game was removed from the listing since All Games Beta linked to this screenshot.
There was a rumor floating around last year that the game would be released this year.
Ridge Racer: Driftopia is a free-to-play game arriving on PS3 and PC.
The game is based on the smash Ridge Racer franchise, and is a completely free to download and play. Ridge Racer: Driftopia will be released towards the end of 2013 to both PS3 and PC. “At Nambo Bandai Games we are committed to embracing new business models alongside the still vital traditional retail sector,” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President, Namco Bandai Games Europe. “Free-to-play is playing an increasingly important role, so it’s very exciting to be bringing one of our most successful franchises to the free-to-play space for everyone to enjoy.”
Bugbear Entertainment has teased their “next car game”.
A post on the official website reads:
A video was also posted, showing off the cars and the damages they can receive. Maybe this is a new FlatOut game? If it is, maybe we’ll be lucky and catch the game on the PS4. Furthermore, the studio said in the comments to the trailer that they’re far away from “targeted system requirements or platforms.”
Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia believes that GTA 5 will be able to top the sales from CoD, and become the biggest selling game of 2013. Bhatia believes that the production value of the game is $137.5 million, and that about 250 people have been working on the game for five years. Using that estimate, plus a modest selling of only 15 million copies, along with a meager marketing, there would be about $193.6 million in operating profit for Take-Two.
Furthermore, Bhatia reckons that 18 million copies will be sold within six months. Calculated earnings of this period would then end at Take-Two’s 2014 financial year.

Five brand new screenshots from GTA 5 has been released. In one of the screenshots I think you can see the three main protagonists of the upcoming game. We also see some interesting scenes, like one where we’re looking out on a plane right next to us.
