News: GTAIV: San Andreas Beta 3 is out now


With the release of the Game Informer first reveal of Grand Theft Auto V, the embargo on a number of websites who also previewed the same demo has been lifted. As it was the same demo Game Informer saw, what new information we have from these previews is stuff GI didn't include in their write up. So far Meristation, The Guardian and Jeuxactu are the only three to publish their previews. As with the last preview, we have summed up the new information from all three into convenient bullet points. (Note: IGN will be releasing their preview in bits throughout the week)
