y'know, at this point, every time I see a new post has been made in this thread I'm hoping it's because GTA 6 (or the next GTA game) has a confirmed date, and or trailer. And for at least a year, I get let down with each notification and bump
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.

GTA 6 probably won't be announced until RDR2 has been out on PC for at least 6 months, so maybe at the next E3. Or the one after that.

I decided to dip back into GTA V again recently and let me tell you, after playing nothing but RDR2 and The Witness for the past nine months, you have no idea how chaotic and sensory-overload Grand Theft Auto is haha

Mysterious GTA IV Update On Xbox One Restores Removed Songs

GTA IV owners who have the game on Xbox One might have received an update on their console. This had a fairly large size and lacked any patch notes.

It was first thought that this might be an update to patch the game and support native 4K resolution and other improvements that are usually featured for the Xbox One X. This didn’t turn out to be the case sadly, as there was no visual improvement made to the game.

The download size of this new GTA IV update was also rather large. It required close to 7 GB of update data to be downloaded on Xbox One. This is unusual for a backward-compatible game which usually gets small updates, even the ones that add support for the Xbox One X.

It has been discovered now that this update will patch back the songs that were removed by Rockstar Games in another update released in April 2018. This discovery was made by a fan account who shared it on Twitter.

Apparently, these songs had their license expire on April 2018, in time for the 10th anniversary of GTA IV. As a result, Rockstar Games had them removed from Grand Theft Auto IV until they were able to get the license to put them back in the game. They are quite happy with the success of Red Dead Redemption 2 and are currently working on their next project as per the reports.

The whole situation about the songs is ridiculous. This never happens with movies so why with a video game? If you allow your song to be used in a video game it should be in that game forever. Whether it is a copy bought on release day or a digital download 10 years in the future. I suppose they could never release something like Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 with the original music either. Copyright laws are so stupid sometimes. I of course understand why we have copyright laws but some companies abuse it. Like when Nintendo was claiming any youtube video that used Nintendo game footage. :rolleyes:

Yeah it's screwed up. They should be getting lifetime rights when they make the game, not 10 years.

In more GTA news...

A lot of "GTA VI will be Stadia exclusive on PC" hype is brewing.

Because when licensing laws were written for movies many decades ago the music industry was much better off. Back then songs in something were advertisements you happened to be paid for. Now licensing fees are the only way a lot of musicians make any money. You don't have a case of someone hearing a song and buying the CD, they just go listen to it on YouTube or Spotify and the musician has to split pennies.

It gets worse than just songs... If I want to Listen to The Offspring and Bad Religion and drive someone down to the KFC or Pizza hut. I could do that in 2001-2003...
Then I was listening to generic bullshit and driving to the fried chicken shack and Pizza Place...
Then recently on mobile, I could listen to TEN in 2010 and drive people to the fried chicken shack and Pizza Place...

NO!!! FUCK YOU!!!! I AM LISTENING TO ALL I WANT AND I AM DRIVING TO THE FUCKING KFC!!!!!
FUCK YOU!!! I AM LISTENING TO THEM AND US AND DRIVING TO THE GOD DAMN PIZZA HUT!!!!

And if If I'm doing a Kickflip in Tony Hawk 2... It had GOD DAMN BETTER BE TO A TRACK CALLED "YOU" or you and your remakes CAN FUCK RIGHT OFF!!!

Yeah that bullshit with Crazy Taxi is also well bullshit! So they would really have to pay KFC and PIzza Hut to keep those original locations in the game? Why? It is free advertisement for them! I guess I'd understand if it was in a really violent game and they didn't want their brand associated with that. But Crazy Taxi? Come on! Their solution is pay us or take our likeness out of the game. Well of course they aren't going to pay them AGAIN to use their restaurants in the game. You'd think KFC would rather leave their likeness in the game for free advertisement rather then making them change it from KFC to Chicken Shack or whatever.
