Rockstar announced today that there will be a limited time Valentine's day content update that will be available from this Friday, February 14, until next Friday February 21, 2014. The new content will only be available for the week, but once you own the new content, it's yours for the life of GTA Online. (Content is also available in single player.)

Here's what's included:

NEW WEAPON: GUSENBERG SWEEPER
Nothing says “I love you” quite like the warm wooden grip and cold steel barrel of a Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun. Get it from any Ammu-Nation location in GTA Online (in Story Mode, the Sweeper is automatically deposited into each character's weapon inventory with two full clips and additional ammo can be purchased at Ammu-Nation).

NEW VEHICLE: ALBANY ROOSEVELT

Paint the town red in the classically-inspired Albany Roosevelt. This armored 1920s limousine is perfect for gangsters and their molls. To properly run amok with the new Roosevelt, get in the driver’s seat and let your friends or Crewmates hang off the side, firing and taking out your rivals as you pass them by. The Roosevelt can be accessed from any garage property in Story Mode and is available in GTA Online from the legendarymotorsport.net in-game website.

NEW ATTIRE

Dress to the nines in a host of new double breasted suits and 1920s flapper dresses, or bare it all in sexy undergarments while going incognito with a selection of new masquerade masks. There are also new novelty t-shirts, hats and more available in stores throughout Los Santos, plus a new Flapper Bob hairstyle exclusively for the ladies.
10 NEW JOBS
The Valentine’s Day Massacre also includes 10 new Jobs scattered like the remnants of a broken heart throughout the world of GTA Online, including Deathmatches, a new Parachute Jump and new land, sea and cycling Races.

I'm still using the original controller that came with my PS3. Which, like yours, is from 2008. Battery life is getting a little short on it, but other than that, it still works perfectly.

Since they've hit £300,000 so quickly, they now have some stretch goals.

  • £400,000 - Live in-game period music: In-game music will be live medieval music recorded by local Czech masters, note for note from ancient song books.
  • £500,000 - Symphonic orchestra soundtrack: Soundtrack for cutscenes will be recorded by a live symphonic orchestra.
  • £600,000 - Playable female character: We get a lot of questions about being able to play as a female. Our original story was built around a male character, a young blacksmith, and we cannot simply change it. However, we would like to offer this opportunity in another way. If we can raise £600,000 we shall add a line of quests into our game where you can play as a young woman that saves the lead character in the beginning of the game. She's smart, courageous and good at stealth.
  • £700,000 - Performance motion capture: Motion capture is one of the most expensive parts of development. If we reach this goal, we will be able to capture actors with the latest and greatest technology and capture not only their body movement, but also their facial animation and voices at the same time. This will deliver the best natural looking cutscenes and dialogues possible. If you saw Ryse, we talk about the same quality here.
  • £800,000 - Coming soon?
  • £1,000,000 - Coming soon?

They're currently at £478,000, and there is still 24 days left.

Seems very ambitions for a $500.000 game.

The game's already been in development for 18+ months, and they've already spent 1.5 million in that time.

The goal is only around 10% of their overall planed budget. The Kickstarter is there to show their investor that there is interest in the game.

@ll_exile_ll: They say 8 core, but what I think they mean is 8 threads. (Hyper-threading)

i7 CPU's have 4 cores with 8 threads, where the 3930k has 6 cores with 12 threads.

any first reactions on ps3 vs 360 yet ? gta 4 and red dead on ps3 has me concerned.

Rockstar has said that GTA V is the first game that they have developed for both consoles at the same time, rather than developing a game on a lead platform, and then porting it to the other. They have said that the games are very similar to each other, and it would be hard to tell them apart graphically. We'll likely find out if that's true once LensOfTruth releases their Head2Head article.
