GTA V Social Club TV leak leads to ban

By Alan Ng - Jul 10, 2014

It looks like the GTA V leaks are not slowing down. We are waiting for Rockstar to deliver GTA V Heists once and for all, but it looks like the developer are still testing the waters with other features and are focusing on GTA V for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

With the game coming this Fall, it’s no surprise to see Rockstar working around the clock to ensure that the upgrade is well worth it for gamers. The PC release is going to end one of the most highly anticipated releases, with GTA V mod support the stuff of dreams and the single reason why gamers prefer gaming on PC.

This week, it looks like Rockstar are currently testing one PC feature of GTA V. You may remember that Rockstar has promised that the PC version specifically will be coming with some kind of video editor.

Now, it seems like this feature is going to be the GTA V Social Club TV as an image showing the new mode has been leaked by a GTA V hacker. The person, known in the community as “Chr0m3 X Modz” has been digging into Rockstar’s private vault and has uncovered some new secrets that he wasted no time in sharing with everyone else.

The Social Club TV feature could be exclusive to PC and may allow PC gamers to upload footage directly to YouTube. It also looks like the mode will allow players to go into free roam mode in order to create amazing GTA V trailers, which can then be uploaded directly onto the Social Club TV for other players to see.

It looks like Rockstar has discovered that this user has been a bit naughty, as one Tweet from the hacker shown above reveals that he has now been banned from GTA Online for his recent actions.

As far as we’re aware though, this is the first time we have seen evidence of a GTA V Social Club TV, so some of you may appreciate the efforts that this person has gone to in sharing it publicly at the expense of a ban – even though Rockstar doesn’t like it.

The image you see below is taken from a Rockstar website that isn’t available for public viewing either, showing the Social Club TV logo as it should appear on the PC version.

Let us know what you think about this and if Rockstar are right to ban the player. We wonder if this is going to be on GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One too, or just exclusive to PC? Exciting times on the way this Fall nevertheless.
