The Grand Theft Auto 5 sales behemoth knows no end: Rockstar's epic has now sold over five million copies in the UK alone.
Official figures from Chart-Track, which do not include download sales, reveal GTA 5's latest milestone.
GTA 5 is one of the most successful games of all time. Three days after release it made $1bn, securing its place as the fastest-selling entertainment product in history. As of 31st December 2014, the game had shipped an astonishing 45m copies to retailers.
Hot off the heels of last year's excellent PlayStation 3 and Vita remaster package, Final Fantasy X and X-2 land on PlayStation 4 with a string of upgrades - a remaster of a remaster, if you will. It's not been long since our last travail through Spira: precisely 13 months dividing this latest release from the last two. In that time, Square Enix has continued the same remastering process by updating even more assets and effects. But having appeared on three Sony home consoles in a row, plus a handheld, does the new PS4 version bring the definitive editions of these classic titles?
The first impression is clear: this is fundamentally the same as the PS3 version in terms of most core details, though specific NPCs and creatures do benefit from being rebuilt from scratch. Curiously, some receive more attention than others. To start, the PS4 release keeps the updated character models of last-gen; the main cast is untouched here - a mixed blessing given how greatly Tidus and Yuna's differ from their PS2 appearance. However, texture map resolution is also increased across Al Bhed tribesmen, while fur detail on fiends now gets a noticeable bump in quality.
While short of the complexity of the main crew, certain idle villagers and fiends also sport fuller, more rounded geometric meshes. Quite how it's determined which characters in Spira qualify for the latest remastering treatment is unclear; the lucky ones now have fingers, while others still sport PS2-style block hands. Overall though, just about any assemblage of characters on-screen, from best to worst, now fit in better when placed side-by-side, and the divide in model quality is less stark when compared to the existing PS3 version. Square Enix's attention is not spread evenly across the game, but it's certainly a step forward.
