PSA: Last Chance To Transfer GTA Online Characters From 360 And PS3

If you're a last-gen Grand Theft Auto Online player aiming to continue the adventures of your Xbox 360 or PS3 character on PS4 or Xbox One, now's the last chance to transfer your character data.

Starting on March 6, it will no longer be possible to move a GTA Online character from last-gen consoles. It's long been the case that Xbox 360 and PS3 owners have missed out on GTA Online's numerous updates; since late 2015, GTA Online content drops have been exclusive to PS4, Xbox One, and PC, leaving last-gen players behind.

For Xbox 360 and PS3 players, it's now or never, but they've had plenty of time to make the change. Thankfully, Rockstar is giving players more than a month's notice before they lock characters to their last-gen consoles forever, rather than just pulling the rug out with no warning.

Our Take 
With Grand Theft Auto V still selling as well as it does month over month, it's no surprise that players are engaging more with the engrossing online portion. Rockstar has done a commendable job of giving players new expansions and content since release, and events such as this one ensure that fans will keep coming back for more.

Gladio DLC Coming To Final Fantasy XV On March 28

The first story-focused DLC for Final Fantasy XV is almost upon us. Square Enix has announced that "Episode Gladiolus" is slated for release on March 28, and puts players in direct control of Gladio.

While Gladio is usually by Noctis' side in the main story, players can only order him to perform certain attacks. In this DLC, he takes center stage as the main character. From the screenshot above, it appears that Gladio also teams up with Cor Leonis (aka "The Marshal"), who briefly appears a guest companion in Final Fantasy XV. According to Square Enix, the fan-favorite character Gilgamesh also makes an appearance.

The episode is included for season pass holders (and owners of FFXV's Premium Edition), but others need to purchase it separately. Other DLC episodes starring Prompto and Ignis are also planned to release later this year.
