Surely being forced to work unpaid overtime is already illegal?

People should probably just not work unpaid overtime and if they get fired over it they can take the employer to court

Only if the hours of overtime added to your normal hours make you hourly rate drop below the minimum wage.

Maybe that should be changed

What's so crazy is that almost 3 1/2 years since release and this game continues to stay at the top of the charts - currently number 2 in the all formats chart. So people are holding on to their copies once they finish the game, and people have made the online game a big success.

It's funny because you have Activision who have three development teams producing a new Call of Duty to top the charts every year and you have Rockstar who have this one game that is evergreen for them. It then explains why they didn't see a need to release an expansion pack. It makes you wonder what GTA VI will look like...

GTA:V has sold more copies than sales of most consoles. :lol:

Hopefully we'll see a new GTA this generation.

Wonder what the location/era will be, their games based on LA always seem to perform the best.

I can't see them doing another San Andreas-based game straight after the GTA5, but it really is the best location. Mountains, oceans, forests, deserts, cities - can't think of another US-based setting that has that much variety. But then with RDR2 coming out this year, maybe they'll go for a GTA set in a completely urban environment? Who knows.

A modern day take on Chicago would be pretty good I reckon. Theres a lot of talk there at the moment about corruption and crime rates so theres good potential for storylines and it has a pretty recognisable look and feel. Theres not much in the way of variety in the surrounding terrain but it is on Lake Michigan and theres no reason they cant take some artistic license and put forest or mountains nearby with a ski resort or something.

I don’t think they will move outside of the US or make another solely San Andreas game for GTA:VI. I’d like to see them make a game with multiple cities and environments with some real variety between them. It might not make much real world geographical sense, but have different cities (a hot coastal one, a snowy one, a rainy one?) with large areas inbetween of snowy fields, grassy plains etc with smaller towns and villages. Open up the airports for quick travel between the cities from the start for those that get bored in the countryside and let the rest of us piss around driving between them.

Both good ideas, Rax & Moggy. I shall write Take Two a letter this afternoon with GRcade's suggestions.

When I decided to buy the ps4 version, as I stood in the queue at Tesco, 2 other people were holding onto a copy. And that was the end of last year

Which means there is potential for Take Two to sell 75million and 1 copies. :datass:

Actually an updated Las Venturas would be pretty great as well.

GTA VI - Vice City 2.

The most 80s sounding sequel title ever.

I actually find this a bit sad that this is the type of game which most people want to play - violent, sex, drugs etc...It's kind of a sick reflection of society today...

Give me Mario any day :toot:

A sick reflection of society today from a game series that started in 1997? :lol:

I guess it's more morally repugnant than good old fashioned wholesome entertainment like public hangings and cock fighting.
