It’s re-released Valentine’s gear, but it’s better than a broken heart, right?

GTA Online players on PS3 and Xbox 360 got an actual content update yesterday. Sort-of.

Rockstar re-released the Valentine’s Day Massacre content on the older systems, bringing back a vehicle, clothes, masks, hairstyles and gun that were only available for a limited time in 2014.

Rockstar said last year that it would no longer support GTA: Online on Xbox 360 and PS3 in favour of PS4, Xbox One and PC updates. That’s been a difficult decision for OG players on the last-gen systems.

Yesterday the new formats got a Valentine’s variation – the Be My Valentine update included over 70 new clothing items, a restyled Albany Roosevelt limousine and the Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun. The Til Death Do Us Part mode joins that line-up tomorrow.

The re-released content for Xbox 360 and PS3 might not please many old-gen players, but at least if you’re on those systems you get a second chance to own the Gusenberg Sweeper, a fine close range rapid-fire weapon that disappeared from Ammu-Nation a month after it went on sale.
