    Rockstar launched GTA Online title update 1.09 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 over the weekend.

     

    The patch, which will be automatically applied when players launch the game, offers "improved anti-cheat measures" and fixes "for several GTA$ and RP exploits" for GTA 5's multiplayer mode.

     

    Title update 1.09 follows in the footsteps of previous title updates, which have previously served up new jobs, gameplay mode, and customisation options.

     

    Last week Grand Theft Auto V became the fourth best-selling game in UK history.

     

    If you've stopped playing GTA Online, will this crackdown on cheaters be enough to convince you to come back?

    PlayStation Now wasn't the only game-streaming service exhibited at the Consumer Electronics Show 2014. Toshiba also announced that in the first quarter of 2014 it will ship a new line of smart TVs that can stream games using the GameNow service.

     

    The Toshiba L7400U, L5400U, and L3400U models all come with GameNow installed, in addition to other apps that are popular on Smart TVs like YouTube, Netflix and Pandora. At the moment, GameNow has deals in place to stream PC versions of Capcom games like Resident Evil 5, Devil May Cry 4, and Dead Rising 2, and with Warner Bros. for Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City.

     

    Ubitus, the Taiwanese company that owns GameNow, has also made similar deals with Konami, Sega, and Square Enix. At E3 2013, electronics manufacturer LG also announced that it's planning to ship Smart TVs that include GameNow.

     

    According to the company's official website, newly registered accounts to GameNow get a 30 minute free trial for each game . After that, GameNow offers different subscription plans or game pack deals.

     

    Sony announced the upcoming PlayStation Now service at their CES 2014 keynote address, and we got some hands-on time with it at the show. The service will allow users to stream a selection of PS1, PS2, and PS3 games to both the PS3 and PS4, as well as the PlayStation Vita, Sony 2014 Bravia TVs, and even mobile and tablet devices. The service demoed well at the show, with no discernible lag even on graphically intensive games.

     

    Polygon reported that the GameNow service didn't work as well, saying games were "playable, but laggy."

    Capcom developer: next-gen games take 8-10 times more work to develop

    "It's clear that heightened game quality leads to a rise in the number of man hours," Capcom's Senior Manager of Technology Management Masaru Ijuin said in an interview posted to the company's official website. "The amount of work involved in making games for next-gen consoles is eight to ten times greater than what is required for the current generation of consoles."

     

    Ijuin discussed the work he's doing on Capcom's new Panta Rhei engine for the Xbox One and Playstation 4, which Deep Down uses. It will replace its current MT Framework engine Capcom used to build all of its games for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

     

    "Looking ahead to the development of games for next-gen consoles, we felt we needed to completely overhaul the development environment to better cope with the increasingly complex hardware," Ijuin said "That's pretty much why we started developing this new engine."

     

    He said that if the company decided to simply improve upon the MT Framework engine it might have been able to reduce the work time from one hour to 30 minutes, but that his goal is to shorten those 30 minutes to 10.

     

    While Capcom will only use Panta Rhei for Xbox One and PS4 going forward, it will still use MT Framework for the Wii U, and a modified version of the engine for PS Vita, 3DS, and Smartphones.

    Energy Hook headed to PS Vita and PS4

    Energy Hook, the crowd-funded game from the former technical director and designer of Spider-Man 2, will release on PS Vita and PlayStation 4 at the same time it's released on the PC, the developer announced on the PlayStation Blog.

     

    Energy Hook comes from the mind of Jamie Fristrom, a 20-year industry veteran who's responsible for the much celebrated physical swinging system in Spider-Man 2. Fristrom also worked on Tony Hawk games during his career, and Energy Hook, in short, is a combination of the core concepts of those two games.

     

    "Imagine that 3D swinging-and-movement games like Spider-Man 2 and Bionic Commando had a love child with points-for-style games like SSX, Tony Hawk and Project Gotham Racing," Fristorm said, describing Energy Hook. "You swing from rooftop to rooftop, pull off mid-air tricks, run along walls, and rack up points and energy for doing it."

     

    Fristrom funded development of the game with an unconventional Kickstater campaign, setting an initial goal of only $1, but ended up earning $41,525 from 1,622 backers. He expects to launch Energy Hook later this year.
