Today, we've got a special Asked & Answered that addresses this and many other frequently asked questions we've seen recently. If you've got a question for us, as always, feel free to hit us up at mouthoff@rockstargames.com and we'll do our best to provide you an answer if we can – and maybe even address your question in the future here at the Newswire.“Are you only doing first person games now? I have always loved Rockstar Games partly because they are third person games.” – Allen (via Mouthoff)Absolutely not! We are excited by the response to our first effort at a first person experience, but remain committed to third person games and may or may not use first person as a camera option in the future. We do like to, whenever possible, give people options so they can play a game the way they like.“To the people at Rockstar Games, could you guys please bring First Person to PS3 / Xbox 360?” – Brandon (via Mouthoff)“Why just have First Person on next-generation, why not on the other consoles? Could [you] add it to PS3 and Xbox [360] please?” - @DawsonSunderlanAs we’d mentioned in our recent interview with IGN, First Person Mode is a new feature that is only technically possible for us to add to the game with the expanded memory that the new generation platforms provide. There are thousands of new animations added to the game to facilitate First Person Mode, which would have been impossible to do on the previous generation of consoles without seriously compromising the game in some other capacity.“What is the point of Shark Cards, apart from to make you greedy bastards lots of money?” – Tim (via Mouthoff)The reason we included optional in-game currency in Grand Theft Auto Online, rather than directly selling DLC, was because it was the only way that we could distribute DLC without dividing the player base each time we brought out a new content pack, which would destroy the online community very quickly by splitting players up. Thanks to Shark Cards, we have been able to give away every piece of DLC so far for free in order to keep the community whole and give people options as to whether they want to earn new content by playing the game, buy new content with Shark Cards or simply don’t get new content and still keep playing the game.“What is the #GTAOnline Heist official release date?” - @iCrazyTeddy“Why are Heists taking so long?” – Donny (via Mouthoff)We aren’t ready to give an official release date yet, but we are confident they will be ready early in 2015. As you may have read on IGN, Heists were a much bigger challenge to create than we had originally anticipated. Early versions were simply not good enough and had to be scrapped more than once as we honed in on how we thought they should work. We’re happy to say that the pack we are now finalizing is something we are excited by and eager to release as soon as it is ready. We, as a company, have always been about trying to make something that is good rather than hitting a date. We apologize when this gets frustrating but firmly believe that rushing out second-rate content does not do anyone any favors. Hopefully you agree that yesterday’s new Trailer is a sign that Heists are shaping up nicely, but we still need some time to fine tune them. Because we need a little time to get Heists right, we are going to give you a small Christmas gift to keep you entertained until we are done with them.In the meantime, here are a couple of cool new screenshots to whet your appetite…Tight coordination and teamwork will be necessary to fight your way to a big score.Tools of the trade. There will be new vehicles including the armored Karin Kuruma.“Are Heists only for Xbox One and PS4?” – IG:dodger_blue_antAs previously confirmed, GTA Online Heists will be available to play on all four consoles: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One – as well as for the PC.“Now that you have GTAV out for next gen consoles, are you going to forget about the rest of us?” - @BlackWolf468Hi BlackWolf, certainly not as players on PS3 and Xbox 360 can look forward to Online Heists and other updates that are in the works coming soon. We are incredibly thankful to our original generation of GTAV and GTA Online players on those systems and wish to continue providing content to them for as long as we can. Of course, at some point in the future, there may be a point where we reach the limits for the previous generation of consoles as there may be some updates that are only technically possible on the new hardware – but we do hope to continue delivering as many updates as we can for all four consoles for as long as possible.“Will you add snow to #GTAV this winter again? I missed it last time. Would be awesome: P” - @zaetayo“You guys gonna do an Xmas theme for GTAV again?” - @Ryan_HedaWe prefer to keep such things as a surprise, but without giving away any details (no peeking under the tree!), we can say that we do have a few seasonal treats in the works for players on all four systems to enjoy this coming holiday season in GTA Online. Look for details on that very soon.“Hi, please would it be possible to add or patch the ability to leave your car engine running when leaving a vehicle into the game?” – Martin (via Mouthoff)“Why are there no animals in GTA Online?” - @joeny33“Will the casino ever be available to us players to gamble our hard earned GTA dollars?” - @TheGamer4_G“Grand Theft Auto next-gen is almost the perfect game in my humble opinion… However I do have one suggestion, I would LOVE to see a Texas hold ‘em and/or Blackjack mini-game… I would love to have the chance to gamble with my GTA dollars against AI and other players around the word. It would add yet another activity in the vast world that has already been created. Yours sincerely, a loyal fan.” – Scott (via Mouthoff)We know that there is a never-ending community wish list for new content to be added to Grand Theft Auto Online. Not only do we truly appreciate that, as we’ve always said that the evolving world of GTA Online is as much yours (the players and residents of Los Santos and Blaine County) as it is ours – but we also need it and rely on it. Please keep your most wanted new features, updates, changes and tweaks coming via email to our official inbox at GTAOnline@rockstargames.com; we are constantly checking this feedback for ways that we can improve the game. To date, your feedback sent there has been invaluable in helping shape the game to what it is so far, and we look forward to the collaboration continuing strong in 2015 and beyond.“Can PS4 players play GTA Online with PS3 players?” – IG:evil_gamer505We absolutely love being able to push the boundaries of what can be done in a dynamic online world like GTA Online, but certain things are not technically possible right now and this is one of them. Unfortunately, there is no technical way that we could enable players to play in the same lobby with one another across different types or generations of game consoles. It is also impossible to enable PC players to join console-based lobbies.“After the #GTAV reboot, how about a #RDR reboot?” - @SlyFoxC“#GTAV on #XboxOne is seriously the pinnacle of awesomeness mountain. Now can we please get a Red Dead sequel please @RockstarGames?” - @FRYMANATION“So if you’re going to keep making GTA, why not keep making Red Dead Redemption?” - @Austin_Lawson32It’s wonderful to see so much excitement and enthusiasm for the Red Dead series, and nearly 5 years after Red Dead Redemption’s release(!). As we’ve mentioned when asked in the past about new games in other series such as Red Dead Redemption, Bully and L.A. Noire, we don’t always rush to make sequels, but that does not mean we won’t get to them eventually. We have so many games we want to make and the issue is always one of bandwidth and timing. We thank longtime fans such as yourselves as always for your amazing support and please stay tuned in 2015 for announcements of what’s to come from Rockstar Games.“I was wondering if I could also [transfer] my [GTA Online characters and progress] from Xbox 360 to PC? Because I had a lot of nice cars on my Xbox 360 but I want to play on my PC, not start over to get all my cars. Is that possible?” – Luuk (via Mouthoff)“Hello, wanted to ask about Online character progress transfer. I read on your Support site that it can be done only once. So my question is, I have a level 200 character on my PS3, I want to buy the PC version but think Santa might bring me the PS4 version. If I transfer my character to PS4, does that mean I am not allowed to transfer to PS3 character to the PC version when it ships next month?” – Tommy (via Mouthoff)Not to worry, you will be able to transfer your Online characters and progress from any of the four consoles (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 or Xbox One) to the PC platform. To be clear, if you transfer or have already transferred your progress from PS3 or Xbox 360 to either PS4 or Xbox One, then you will still be able to do another transfer again from PS4 or Xbox One to PC. We have updated the detailed transfer information article at Rockstar Support to account for this.“Dear friends at Rockstar, I would like to know what’s going on Grand Theft Auto V for PC…” – Alli (via Mouthoff)Hi Alli, we’re presently in the final stages of development on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V and hope to have confirmed official system requirements to share soon here at the Newswire, please stay tuned for that to be announced in the coming week. Thank you and we’re very excited to bring GTAV to the PC gaming community!Wed, 17 Dec 2014 12:27:26 -0500GTA Online Heists: New Trailer and Infohttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52365/gta-online-heists-new-trailer-and-infohttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52365/gta-online-heists-new-trailer-and-infoGTA Online Heists are coming early in 2015 - check out the new trailer for the four-player co-op mode for Grand Theft Auto Online that allows players to plan, prepare and execute multi-tiered Heists across Los Santos and Blaine County. These will require tight communication and coordination, with players taking on specified roles at each point to accomplish multiple objectives on the way to each Heist’s epic finale. Featuring new gameplay, new vehicles, new weapons, new clothing and much more.Head over to IGN for an in-depth interview that details exactly how Heists will work… and why they’ve taken a little more time than originally expected.Tue, 16 Dec 2014 10:18:43 -0500Picturesque Profiles, Interior Decor and More Captivating Snapmatic Photography from GTAV on PS4 & Xbox Onehttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52364/picturesque-profiles-interior-decor-and-more-captivatinghttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52364/picturesque-profiles-interior-decor-and-more-captivatingThe Snapmatic photogs masterfully cataloging life in Los Santos and Blaine County continue to wow us with their work on these new platforms.

So, if you're looking for a fresh start for yourself now that GTA Online has landed on PS4 and Xbox One, read on for a list of potentially viable Crew options.  ATRAIN26chevy and his avid Racing Crew Barely Legal MS may come off a bit flashy with a motto like, "lane switchin with the paint drippin'" but a closer look reveals a collective with altruistic goals as well. "Barely Legal Motorsports is a racing Crew in the world of GTA Online. We take Racing very seriously and we claim Vinewood as our turf. We will accept any competitive Race challenges from other Crews. We would like friendly, loyal and mature acting Racers in our Crew. We play on PS3 and also on the PS4. We have a private FB group amongst our members and we also have a professional website. We will also start in "District Domination" in January. We just recently started doing charity Races in our Crew and anybody in the world of GTA Online is free to join. These Races will be streamed on Twitch and put on YouTube as well. During these Races each player contributes to a specified charity. In February we are having a race for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the American Cancer Society."Website: www.barelylegalms.wix.com/barelylegalwww.rockstargames.com/socialclub/crew/barely_legal_msThe_Order_Of_Thuggin may not come off as a traditional knightly fellowship but Crew Commissioner Markyt03 seems to assure all would-be challengers and prospects that the "work hard, play hard" mentality takes the lead within this circle. With themed Crew events like their Remembrance Sunday they seem to put a lot of thought and consideration behind every outing. "We have been established since the beginning and have a good following of decent and mature players. There will always be someone Online and willing to help you out.We arrange regular Crew vs Crew events and other Crew events like demolition derbies in cars, trucks, boats and planes!

With a congenial "come one, come all" approach to membership we can see good things in this Crew's future development."Since our inception back in October, we've steadily grown, welcoming old and new friends alike. Out of the fire, a phoenix is born. We're not striving to be the best of the best (though we do have some amazing talent within our ranks), our main aim is to find good...nay, GREAT people to have a laugh with! Obviously, as a byproduct of becoming a close-knit Crew, working together to kick arse comes naturally!CREW RULES:Integrity: The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. The state of being whole and undivided.No Crew killing! Accidents do happen... we own up and apologize!If a team member is in need (leveling up / unlocking upgrades / struggling in free roam) we lend a hand.Causing trouble within the ranks is frowned upon. However, causing trouble in GTAO is celebrated!Mic: Ideally we want you to have a mic, mainly because we want everyone to get involved in the banter...I might be (just maybe) using "banter" in its loosest form!Crew Activities: We do it all! TDM's and Races, Missions and free roam shenanigans - from photo shoots to causing chaos to making videos and Twitching (as in Twitch rather than a nervous twitch, although...), sports and leisure, and not forgetting drinking and lap dances - so yeah, EVERYTHING! Not everyone participates in all activities but you're guaranteed to find someone to take up arms with, no matter what your preferred forms of enjoyment are!Recruiting Status: We're are indeed recruiting. If you play GTA Online on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One, and PC - all are welcome. So request that invite! Worldwide members sought; we look forward to welcoming you to English Integrity!Motto: No Stress, No BS!We are a Crew, we are friends, we are family."Website: www.englishintegrity.weebly.comFacebook: www.facebook.com/EnglishIntegrityCrewhttp://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/english_integrityOn the opposite end of the civility spectrum, Crew Commissioner Big-D35 and the La Cosa Nostra style BLK Mob Crime Mafia revel in the belief that bad guys sport black hats while also adhering to the notion that when it comes to crossing one of their members, "a vendetta against one is a vendetta against all"."I am a Commissioner of the BLK MOBB CRIME MAFIA. We are always looking for recruits to add to our family. I amongst some of the others in our Crew have moved to the PS4 but will be playing back and forth to the PS3 until everyone makes the move. If you're looking for a Crew that treats you like family, that's us. We rarely ever fail any Missions and are always here to help one another out, no matter what the case may be. Feel free to look me up under PSN ID, "Bg-D" or on Rockstar Social Club. You can also check out our website to read up on how we operate in GTA and to get a sense of our general style and mentality."Website: http://www.blkmob4life.comhttp://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/blk_mob_crime_mafiaHaraamKhan, Leader of the LA_Avenue_Browns Crew, is looking to elevate his tight-knit clique of long-time friends into an expansive social circle than out performs all rivals. "LA Avenue Browns is a Crew set in the style of a street gang. Once a closed Crew strictly for friends, we're now looking to expand and bring in new members to join us on representing our set in Los Santos and Blaine County alike. We're all mature gamers and we like to play competitively in public Deathmatches as well as shutting the doors and booting up against each other. What I want from my Crew is a lot different than many Crews out there. I am trying to keep our members together, actively playing on all games across the Xbox One. A majority of Crews we see out there have a low level of social interaction between members, our aim is to build a community within our crew where everyone communicates with each other and there is minimal conflict between members.As of the 26th of November, we are ranked within the top 30 on the Xbox for Team Deathmatches at rank 25 (as of date written) and we are proud of reaching that goal with only 14 members. We're not looking for thousands of members but If you fancy a Crew that'll actually communicate with you and value you the same as everyone else then lace up your Timbs and hit us up."http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/la_avenue_brownsThe fledgling brotherhood of "outcasts" known as the Outkast_MC is headed up by Assassins1191, and march forward with a simple message of "don't mess" to all would-be antagonists."Oukast MC are currently looking for new recruits. We are a group looking to make new brothers. Our basic requirements are that you have a mic and once you're in, you're in for life.(meaning you are only in this Crew). If you are interested please request an invite to the prospect page. As of right now we are a PS4/PS3 Crew but we want to branch out to Xbox One and eventually PC. Are motto is "Kill all, end all" Meaning attack or provoke one of our brothers and we will come after you." Prospect Page: http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/outkast_mc_prospectsSite: http://ghost600k.wix.com/oukast-mc#!blank/c3rxhttp://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/outkast_mcCREW RECRUITMENT VIDSAs a tight-knit and organized MC with a charismatic leader known as Bigtoke421, the Angels of Death MC are recognized as an Official Gang at GTAForums and historically haven't reached out to the public for newer joining members. GTA Online biker-style players on the new platforms should certainly take note, as this well-established clique looks to expand their ranks. This week's featured recruitment vids also brings us a new pitch from the previously featured French Shine Thugz Crew - debuting their new gen jump forward with a brand new music video."How long has our Crew been together? Since the inception of GTA IV. If you venture over to GTAForums you'll find our original thread dating all the way back to then. I guess that shows how much we love the game. We've put an insane amount of hours into both GTA IV and GTA Online. I doubt you'll find many other Crews with such a long history. We look for members that are fun and creative. We specialise in creating and playing custom game modes. Examples of such game modes can be found on our YouTube channel.To any potential applicants, it would be best to either send a friend request to Booze T, Jedi ML or AoD Bigtoke on Xbox LIVE. Alternatively, sign up to GTAForums and post an application in our gang thread.

Check out a round up of just a few awesome ones that have been catching our eye. NIGHT MOVESLos Santos By Night by The XXIAn impressive piece of work from XXI, capturing the night life of Downtown Los Santos and East Vinewood in a slick presentation that really shows off the style and vibe of the city after hours. Also check out his "Feel The Scale" series to get a time-lapse taste of just how vast the entirety of Los Santos and Blaine County really is.A WHOLE NEW (GEN) WORLDA Whole New (Gen) World | GTA 5 Aladdin Song by 8-BIT BASTARD8-BIT BASTARD is at it again, with possibly his most ambitious and grandiose film parody to date. Realizing there was a whole new Los Santos out there to explore, 8-BIT broke out the ole magic carpet Sultan and enlisted his own Aladdin and Jasmine to do their take on the classic song from Disney's Aladdin. "Unbelievable sights/Loads and loads of more music/30 people are playing online all at the same time," you'll definitely feel inspired to take a trip of your own.We also highly recommend 8-BIT's GTAV Wildlife Documentary | Into The Deep, in which he takes a much more measured approach at making what feels like a legitimate documented study of the flora and fauna of the ocean along the LS coastline. In his own words, "This GTA 5 nature documentary will demonstrate the behaviors of some of the most remarkable mammals in the oceans that surround Los Santos and Blaine County and some of the deepest mysteries will also be revealed."  TIME-LAPSE MAGICGTAV Online | From PS3 to PS4 by KOKONITOS VIDSKokonitos, who dazzled us earlier in the year with the video she did featuring the Russian Girls Crew (G1RU), is back - strutting through the streets of Los Santos (and occasionally leaving mayhem in her wake). Fully taking advantage of the First Person feature, and a cool use of time-lapse, this impressive vid really shows off some of the natural beauty of GTAV on the new platforms, and manages to sneak in a few sly pop culture nods along the way.GTA V (PS4) Time-Lapse - The Beautiful Game by ThirstyHyenaWe've certainly seen our share of gorgeous time-lapse videos so it was really great to see ThirstyHyena not only show off impressive changes in weather and daily going-ons within the LS traffic grid, but tour famous landmarks and building interiors for the full effect.GTA V Next Gen - Driving Time Lapse - World in Motion by SA96HDStarting out on Vespucci Beach, SA96HD takes the high-end Pegassi Zentorno out for a leisurely daytrip through Los Santos and Blaine County, even making sure to stop at traffic lights and observing basic rules of the road. An entire day's drive wraps up in just over 5 minutes, concluding with a perfect reflective moment on the Del Perro Pier.DAY ONE DAREDEVILGTA 5 PS4 - "Day One" - Freestyle Daytage (PS4 BMX/Drifting/Sanchez) by Fishy DizzleFishy Dizzle has previously exhibited impressive skill and mastery when it comes to making and directing BMX Stunt videos. In this presentation, Fishy cuts his teeth on the new First Person mode - drifting around corners in the Vinewood Hills and putting a Sanchez through its paces with unflinching regard for his own safety. If you enjoyed this also check out his "Persistance" A First Person Minitage clip as well.HOLY DIVERSGTA5 Next Gen: Skydive - 1st Person Stunt Montage by ash0191On a Los Santos skydiving excursion Back in July, ash0191 incredibly dove through the iconic sign on top of a Liquor Hole location. ash is back at it again, this time pulling off the stunt in first person - it's quite exhilarating (and white knuckling) to experience it from that point of view. Beyond that, some really cool parachuting and jet stunting can be witnessed here. Also, while not attempting the stunt in First Person mode like ash0191 did above, past Rockstar Livestream guest Typical Gamer impressively replicated the original feat himself during a stream with HikeTheGamer.QUICK STUNTSGTA V - First Person Scorcher Tower Wallride [Slayer's Ethos Spot] by VaNillaThink you could handle a straight drop off one of the tallest structures in Downtown Los Santos? Veteran Nomad Union stunter and video editor, VaNilla takes the plunge off the Union Depository with ease, even managing a graceful 360 tail-whip for style before sticking the final landing.-Free Fall Through Vinewood Sign - 1st Person by Richard BoylanHere newcomer Richard Boylan threads an eye-of-the-needle pass through the "D" in the landmark Vinewood Hills sign. For something equally cool, also make sure to check out his ejection seat pass with the P-996 Lazer approaching from the opposite side.Of course, if you've got an excellent GTA or Rockstar themed clip of your own that you think the world needs to see, send it our way to have a look at mouthoff@rockstargames.com, and we may feature it in a future round-up here at the Newswire. Also, to see lots of great vids shared on the regular – make sure you’re following us on Twitter.Previously: Mind Tripping, 5 Stars Vs 2 Wheels, Historic Reenactments and More Mon, 08 Dec 2014 16:03:29 -0500GTA Online PS4 & Xbox One Livestream on Twitch this Fridayhttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52361/gta-online-ps4-xbox-one-livestream-on-twitch-this-fridayhttp://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/52361/gta-online-ps4-xbox-one-livestream-on-twitch-this-fridayJoin us tomorrow, Friday December 5th at 4pm at the Rockstar Twitch channel where we'll be broadcasting a PS4 and Xbox One livestream hosted by our good friend Swiftor along with Rockstar's own Lazlow.Stay tuned for other special guests from the GTA community on Twitch and YouTube to be announced.

The community continues to outdo themselves with these picturesque shots taken on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Scroll down the page for a sampling of spectacular images that include unique perspectives and fresh takes on some familiar locales.In the two shots above Deltakeks captures an old-timey nautical vibe in the area appropriately dubbed "Catfish View".s_morrison95 snapped this precocious looking black pug preparing for a daily jog with his owner.HandsomeHustlerr's Imponte Dukes is all ready for the car show in the cheekily titled, "Open For Business".Some Snapmatic photos have an almost postcard-like quality to them, this one from LambentBunny fits the bill.BLK95TA uses the new red underglow vehicle mod and a custom plate to really drive home the nostalgia.There's a familiar, gritty, 80's film noir feeling to this excellent studio backlot shot in Downtown Vinewood. Taken by JimnyCGRL.SilverFox1 presents us with an excellent close-up view of Franklin's turntables.Stunning rays of sunlight spill across the front window and dashboard as this Hotknife pulls onto Innocence Boulevard. Taken by Banjabi.Deltakeks' topless Invetero Coquette Classic convertible idles comfortably on the grass in a Vinewood Hills park.  We get the sneaking suspicion that lethal138... of the Hells Angels America Crew isn't signaling "you're number one" to rival MCs in this shot.IVY_JO3 shows off an array of color choices at the starting line in this pic, with an up-close on an emerald green Shitzu Hakuchou.HandsomeHustlerr continues with his "open" treatments - here it's a jet black Declasse Stallion.Out for a casual Sunday drive or perhaps something more perilous? The passenger's bandanna says it all. Taken by R1CHIEC.A modern customized take on a classic whip, at the Burton based LS Customs. Bonus points for SilverFox1's custom plate.WetworkMerc's simple application of a soft black and white filter makes this subtle scene fit for framing.This Vapid Hotknife glides through the air in Rockford Hills. Taken by colognemitch.DTizMusiK utilizes the in-game meme options to create a perfect still frame for his favorite YouTube music channel.A beautiful all around shot by kingcozzie, but check out the detail in the cracked earth's mirror reflection off the hood.Officially, this was taken on the coast near Tongva Hills by LambentBunny but if you squint your eyes just a bit it feels like the perfect "wish you were here" sentiment from the Ocean View Hotel in Vice City. The highly detailed contrast of the foliage here against the seemingly painted on silhouette of the LS skyline really caught our eye. Taken by kingcozzie Deltakeks goes out of his way to show that there's more than just roaming sharks cutting their top fins through the choppy waters of the Pacific. up-daz's pristine, white-walled Bravado Buffalo looks rather comfortable nestled in amongst the reeds here.Has R1CHIEC captured an intimate exchange here or simply given us a sneak preview of the latest shot for a Le Chien high-end fragrance ad?Chrome finish may not feel like the appropriate selection for every vehicle class but it's an absolute match for this Truffade Z-Type. Taken by YanochkinaViolate You Get It Crew Leader Black Shogun utilizes a bit of forced perspective to get his point across.HairyHole is living the "HIGHLIFE" with the custom license plate earned in the High Life Snapmatic Contest back in May. We'd be highly interested to find out where exactly in East Vinewood ChaosZake took this excellent shot of a 9F Cabrio reflecting off the glass in front of an onlooker.quaid86 captured this rather candid shot of a LS Custom's mechanic servicing a fierce looking Shitzu Hakuchou.The bold application of red, running adjacent to the mysterious IAA building makes this one taken by cyfly030 particularly striking. Have a great Snapmatic photo you'd like to share?
