The Console Update changelog
STATUS PLAYSTATION 3: Updated!
Update size: 4264 MB
STATUS XBOX360: Still waiting.
Hello everyone. This is the changelog for the upcoming update for the consoles.
Is the update ready yet?
The PlayStation 3 version is. The Xbox 360 version isn’t. The update is now with QA and will be released when it has been fully tested.
Three big changes
Each contract now has reward dependant on the mission specifics. Some contract amounts can seem low but the REAL value is in stealing additional loot bags. If you sling a lot of Coke for Hector he will compensate you greatly. The reward is different depending on the number of coke bags you clear. On the other hand, if you hit Big Oil it is not at all about bags and more about completion. If you get the engine to the helicopter and escape you get a hefty contract pay. This makes the game more tactical and you have to fight greed on almost every heist
Thanks to everyone who helped out with this!

There should be a stage in every product where the ludicrous is thought possible, where the team blazes trails right to the edge of the abyss in a hundred directions. Only through great risks are great things truly achieved.
I would like to say Microsoft has lost their minds and are a very unfriendly consumer company now ! Why you ask ? I will tell you why !
1) I chatted live with Xbox Live account support team today about my Xbox Live Family Gold Plan that is no more now. I asked them why did you charge me $99 then ? They told me this would be the last time and we are giving you three month’s free. I was like cool ! Here is where the very bad part starts, when it ends all your accounts on Xbox Live Family Gold turn into single Gold accounts. If you have four accounts on your Xbox Live Family Gold account, I was told each account will be bill $59.99 !!! I was like WTF !!! That equals $239.96 !!!!! They should drop dead thinking they can charge that !!! I canceled auto renew .
PlayStation Plus is $49.99 a year, every one in your house hold can piggy back that account . They all can have a PSN gamer name. What makes PlayStation Plus a greater deal is if you had pre-order bonus’s and DLC every one under the main account gets everything you own too ! HALLELUJAH !!!
2) RYSE: Son of Rome you pay $59.99 for the game . Microsoft has the balls to have micro-transactions for the CO-OP part of the game ! That would be OK if it was a Free to Play game, but you have to buy the game ! Then they want to give you the shaft for being loyal to them ! I say F$%K YOU !
I could go on, but I know you all get my point ! Save your money and wait before you move to next gen with Micro-shaft. See if they will start giving back and not taking so much to own a XBOX ONE.
Long lost Xbox Soul
PS: Get a PS 4 !
A Destiny beta is scheduled to begin in “early 2014″ and Bungie has confirmed it will be available first on PS3 and PS4.
Here’s all the new information:
Xbox One is only 10% better than Xbox 360 !

This weekend, Friday November 22nd through Sunday November 24th, hit the beaches of Vespucci, Chumash and Paleto Bay for the very first Grand Theft Auto Online Social Club Event Weekend.
All weekend long, plunge into a special Social Club Event Playlist of brand new Jobs from the freshly landed Beach Bum Pack, a hand-picked selection of ten of our favorite new Jobs. Drop some sea shells, go for a fuel-injected run on the beach, and take in some of the most spectacular stretches of coastline in the Los Santos Bay area in modes including Sea Race, Parachute, Team Deathmatch and more. The best performers in the Social Club Event Playlist on each platform will score themselves a special vanity license plate reward for bragging rights and to commemorate their achievement.
In Free Roam, look out for an influx of special Event Crate Drops dropping frequently all weekend containing more than double the usual amount of RP plus high-powered weapons, bonus cash and clothing. They’ll be unlocked for every player to help you pack more than just sunscreen on the blazing sands.
This inaugural GTA Online Social Club Event also features exclusive sweepstakes giveaways of beach-ready GTAV collectibles, a very special live stream broadcast on Friday and more. We’ll be on the lookout for your sun-kissed Snapmatic pics all weekend so be sure to tag them #VespucciBeachParty so that we can find them easily and we might feature them next week here at the Newswire.
Here’s a full rundown of all the action to expect:
Special Event Playlist
Available this weekend only is a special Social Club Event Playlist of new Jobs curated to test your mastery of land, air and sea:
Show some Vespucci beach bums the true meaning of ‘spaced out’ with this steep parachute descent from 2980ft. See how many checkpoints you can hit before opening your ‘chute.
Dirt bike point to point going along Cassidy Creek and ending at the Alamo Sea. Shred from gravel and pavement to the beachfront and try to trump the rest for fame and fortune.
A challenging and scenic boat race weaving around the islands North of Paleto Bay. Tip: Look out for a ramp to help you get one over on your competitors.
Stop the gentrification of Vespucci Beach dead in its tracks with this Team Deathmatch around and on top of the businesses along the beachfront.
In this sequel to the original popular Grass Route Race, go off-road in an epic heat starting on the North bank of the Zancudo River through the treacherous wetlands with a triumphant finish on the beach in North Chumash.
Sure to be a new fan-favorite motorbike race, menace Vespucci Beach on your two-wheel rocket, taking breakneck corners as you try and best the competition.
Home to an infamous truck stop, Procopio Beach has long been known as a place where people come to blow off steam, and this Team Deathmatch along the shoreline at the foot of Mt. Gordo is no exception.
Hug the coastline, pull off some breakneck turns and leap over treacherous rocks and islets in this rough race that starts in the LS River and takes you through the Palomino Highlands on the East Coast.
In this off road Race along the coast, up to sixteen speed demons leg it out across Procopio Beach and the North coast down through Paleto State Beach to Paleto Cove.
Enjoy the stunning vistas as you rapidly descend towards Paleto Cove by Mount Chiliad… but not so much that you forget to open your chute. Prepare for a long free fall from 7500ft, weaving and diving between checkpoints and the drop zone.
Three Ways to Join
In-Game Vanity License Plate Awards

KONAMI details exclusive ‘MGS1 Deja-Vu’ mission for PlayStation®4 & PlayStation®3 users
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V. has announced the PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 editions of its stunning METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES will boast a Sony platform exclusive mission that celebrates the series’ heritage across the PlayStation® range.
Series creator Hideo Kojima has celebrated the heritage of the acclaimed METAL GEAR SOLID franchise across numerous Sony gaming systems, by creating a bespoke mission for the newest addition to the PlayStation® family.
Users will be able to access a unique ‘MGS1 Deja-Vu’ mission that references key events from the original PSOne® classic, METAL GEAR SOLID. The exclusive mission tasks the user with reproducing famous scenes from the original game. As players recreate the iconic moments, a flashback system reproduces the original graphical style of the original PSOne® game – complete with greatly reduced ‘vintage’ polygon count – and introduces familiar enemies and weather conditions for added authenticity.
The mission will be available to both digital and boxed users, and will ultimately let players assume the appearance of the classic ‘Solid Snake’ within the GROUND ZEROES universe once proper conditions are met.
METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES is scheduled to be released in Spring 2014, and acts as a prequel to events in METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. The game introduces a new open-world environment to the series, along with time of day, a variety of weather conditions, extensive AI advances, and a gripping new storyline that will both stun and amaze. METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES will be available in retail stores nationwide on current generation systems for £29.99 or via download for £19.99. Digital versions for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One can be downloaded for £29.99.
