Billed as the first ‘true sequel’ since GTA III way back in 2001, this simultaneous release on PS3 and Xbox 360 uses the same breathtaking graphics engine found in Rockstar’s Table Tennis – so expect plenty of unnerving facial expressions and clothing floating in the breeze.

It looks likely to have an American setting and will have downloadable episodes for Xbox 360, and possibly PS3. Plus it’s strongly rumoured to have online elements – not quite an MMO, but something in between.

 It’s almost certainly going to be one of the biggest games ever seen, and the single biggest drain on your social life imaginable. Wave goodbye to daylight, your girlfriend and your job. Hello next-gen criminal chaos.
