On my profile page, my avatar is marked with a gold medal (which I assume indicates yearly premium membership). However, I have a free account and my billing page confirms this. Is anyone else getting this?
Today, we have an official release date to share with you: Grand Theft Auto V will arrive in stores on September 17, 2013.
We know this is about four months later than originally planned and we know that this short delay will come as a disappointment to many of you, but, trust us, it will be worth the extra time. GTAV is a massively ambitious and complex game and it simply needs a little more polish to be of the standard we and, more importantly, you require.
To all Grand Theft Auto fans, please accept our apologies for the delay, and our promise that the entire team here is working very hard to make the game all it can be. We are doing all we can to help ensure it will meet if not exceed your expectations come September – we thank you for your support and patience.

Is this going to be the last major console game release of current gen consoles?
EA COO Peter Moore announced that the Medal of Honor franchise has been put "out of the rotation".
"The game was solid, but the focus on combat authenticity did not resonate with consumers," EA COO Peter Moore said. "Critics were polarized and gave the game scores which were, frankly, lower than it deserved. This one is behind us now. We are taking Medal of Honor out of the rotation and have a plan to bring year-over-year continuity to our shooter offerings."
EA Labels president Frank Gibeau said EA missed the mark, and the marketplace, with Medal of Honor: "We're in a hit-driven business where it's about what you can build in a certain period of time and really deliver for the marketplace, and frankly we missed on Medal of Honor. And we take responsibility for that."
Well, at least that's one less modern gritty brown FPS on the market. I hope this doesn't mean yearly Battlefield releases, unless they get working on a new Bad Company. Although, I guess whatever Respawn is working on is going to replace MoH.
