Grand Theft Auto V Impressions and PS4 Play As You Download

Good afternoon everyone.

Yesterday the gaming world rejoiced because an official gameplay video of Grand Theft Auto V was released and it was beautiful....

In this post I will give you my impressions of the gameplay and I've got some news about the PS4.

Grand Theft Auto V Impressions

To point out the obvious, Grand Theft Auto V looks gorgeous. The environments, cars and buildings all look great.

This is probably going to be the game that ends the 7th generation of consoles on a high note.

What also looks really great about it is the stuff you can do in your spare time. Playing golf, biking, flying planes through canyons, investing in stocks and real estate.

Customizing your car you ride in and the clothes you wear, is something I really like in an RPG.

From what I understand it seems that in past GTA games you could not do that, now however you can. I think the thing that Rockstar was telling the players is that there are so many choices for you to make in how you want to make your money, what kind of robberies you can commit and what you want to spend that money on.

I've never played the past GTA games but I will surely give GTA V a shot this time around.

Now for the info on the PS4.

PS4 Will Allow You To Play Games As you Download Them


Senior Engineer at Sony Neil Brown, speaking at Develop today has announced that the PS4 will allow gamers quick access to their digital libraries from any PS4 anywhere, simply by logging into their PSN accounts.

"You can visit your friends house you can log into your account and play any game from your digital library, which is good, but how useful is that if it takes half a day to download the game you want to play? 

With Play As You Download you get much quicker access to at least the first section of the game so you can start playing quicker. So this makes a digital library a practical option in the real world."

There is one thing that must be made apparent, the function of downloading games from your digital library is already a function on current generation consoles, the new feature is being able to play the game as it downloads.

The Xbox One will also allow the same functionality with access only to digital games, you will not be able to access your physical retail games without carrying the discs themselves.


The only personal thoughts I can give is on the information about the PS4.

A lot of people already took to the comments section and said "That's nothing new" yes the aspect of downloading games from your digital library is not new, the NEW aspect of this feature is being able to download the game and play it as you download it in the background. That's the new feature.

That's about it for this blog guys. Thanks for reading.
