    Rockstar hasn't confirmed a date as of yet but they will likely tell us very soon.

    With the video editor finally debuting on the PS4, I believe I have found an activity that will easily take up a large proportion of the rest of my life. At least until GTA VI or the next Red Dead Redemption game appears. I literally spent hundreds if not thousands of hours using a similar in-game function on Driver, Driver 2 and Driver 3. However, with the modern graphics and other technological advancements to be found on the PS4, I may have trouble finding the time to go online with GTAO. However, as that now seems to be full of cheaters, hackers and modders, I do not believe I will be missing out on much. Unfortunately. But does anyone actually know the date of the release? September when?

    Looking forward to having more options and creative freedom using the video editor.

    Snapmatic Integration sounds awesome but at the same time I think it could completely alter snapmatic contests. Some of the best shots were all about timing. Might be good, might be bad.
