Grand Theft Auto V first trailer


Pop the top It's time to head to the beach, Rockstar North is taking the crime action, pop culture references and insightful US lifestyle commentary and moving to the sun.


This is the first glimpse of the next iteration of the Grand Theft Auto series, with convertible sports cars dominating the streets and sun and sand dominating the landscape, Rockstar is migrating west (!) from Liberty City (read; New York) to Vinewood (read; Hollywood).

There are still many more game details to be revealed over the expected twelve months before the game will be released, but it is a shame that Rockstar games are not seemingly taking the franchise in a bolder direction.   It would have been refreshing to see the company that brought us games such as Red Dead Redemption, Bully and expansion packs such as The Ballad of Gay Tony experiment more with the well supported Grand Theft Auto.  Instead it looks like a replication of setting that the company did when GTA III went to San Andreas.

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
