New details surface in Japanese mag Famitsu

I told Aoife not to bother writing this one up yesterday because it was such a threadbare story. Now everybody's writing about it, and it clearly isn't quite that threadbare a story, and I feel like an idiot. So here you go: Grand Theft Auto 5 features a dog named Chop, who can be outfitted with different collars and accessories. The heart-rending part? You can lose him.... read more

Clearly the thing for 2013 is dogs, they really are the biggest innovation in gaming since, well since Wolfenstine 3D

It's the biggest thing since the start of the year and every game having a bow, regardless of how high tech the rest of the setting was.

Next thing you know there'll be dogs appearing in Nintendogs. I'm personally hoping for a dog you can fire from a bow. It'll have to be something sleek like a german pointer.

Wish we had more details like who does the dog belong to, we saw I think Franklin with it in the trailer. I HOPE we can have the option to leave Chop back at the house, if he follows me around everywhere he is gonna be lost in 10 minutes...how can he keep up with me if I'm travelling by plane? O.o

What the feck? Is that really going to be the great innovation, an innovation that isn't really an innovation since Fable 2 had a dog, as did number 3, speaking of number 3, there was also Dogmeat in Fallout 3 (and 1&2 for that matter), Rex in Fallout: New Vegas, the CoD dog. Of course the greatest canine companion of all time, Koromaru from Persona 3. The addition of a dog seems to be a bit weak to me, now a Siberian Tiger or a Black Bear, that would make for an awesome pet. :)

There's also Repede in Tales of Vesperia. That dog kicks some major arse!

i hope we can take chop for a nice, quiet drive by and then have him attack the left over fools on the sidewalk.

'SIC EM CHOP!'....... cheer up you grumpy lot, it sounds like a great addition, going to be fun ;)

I like dogs in games. In Dragon Age Origins the dog was one of my favourite characters. I called him Barkspawn.

Is there a choice of dog? I'd rather have a spaniel or a bernese mountain dog than whatever that is, a rottweiler I'd assume. I'm pretty sure there'd be one vote for a white dog with dark spots here as well, a lovely english setter :P

My girlfriend would definately vote for the afore mentioned spotty dog, but I'm quite happy with the rottweiler since I grew up with them.

Rare to see someone flying the flag for them nowadays, good on you for supporting dwindling British dogs
