The Rockstar Editor is coming to 'GTA V' on consoles after all

Apparently "exclusive" doesn't mean what it used to anymore. Rockstar Games recently revealed that its eponymous video editing toolset is coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto V in a recent question and answer session pulled from its mailbag. Given the extra horsepower it requires, the Rockstar Editor won't surface on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but the team hopes to release it for new-gen systems this summer or "as soon as it is ready." So, maybe don't hold your breath for too long, but you never know.

The Q and A covers a pretty wide variety of other topics too! The for-now PC-exclusive radio station "The Lab" from legendary DJs The Alchemist and Oh No? It's coming to all four consoles via a title update. There's some news regarding fresh online heists if you've already exhausted the current supply as well.

The video editor suite sounds like it could be pretty great, but since you can't exactly install mods on the console versions it means you'll almost positively miss out on making clips of blue whales plummeting from the skies of Los Santos. You know, like the one below.
