GTA V Will Go Next-Gen... Eventually

GR's DeShaun Zollicoffer writes:

I know what you’re thinking, “Wait… everyone knows Grand Theft Auto V is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360.” That’s true; the game will obviously still come to those platforms next year. But I believe that we will also see an enhanced next-generation version sometime in the near future. Now, before labeling me a dirty rumormonger, hear me out.

it look next gen quite frankly

Snookies122010d ago (Edited 2010d ago )

Mainly the scope of the game, its size is enormous... People think next-gen will be a huge leap. Really, we're already just about there in current games. It's not going to be THAT much different to be honest.

Snookies122010d ago

Why the disagrees? Do people actually think it'll be a huge difference to what we have now?

ILive2010d ago (Edited 2010d ago )

It's not going to be as huge as PS2 to PS3 but there as to be a significant amount of difference to warrant a purchase. For example, Wii to the Wii U. Otherwise, why release another console? You get what I am saying right?

Triple AAA titles are hitting their limits with the current systems, mainly due to hardware limitations.If you dont think a significant upgrade to the GPU, CPU, and RAM will allow developers to make better games, you've gone off the deep end. Sure, it's not going to be the end all be all of gaming (It very well could be the last generation of consoles as we are use to them) but it sure should make for better AI, Graphics, Physics, and Connectivity between devices. When the lowest common denominator is upgraded, so too are the games.

I agree, People are thinking that Graphics are going to be like a PS2-PS3 jump, and that is not just not the case. There is a graphical saturation point, and its pretty close to being reached.

Wait till you see the actual, muddy graphics with 15-20 fps on x360 / ps3

edit: If you don't believe me, you will see that i'm right in about 5 months.

ILive2010d ago

We haven't actually seen the gameplay yet. Also, Gta games have not been the greatest in graphics because of their scope. They have been pretty decent however. GTA games have never really been about the graphics anyway. I do expect it to be better looking than the mess that was GTA 4.

Enemy2010d ago

Based on what, sped up trailers or bull-shots? Wait to see gameplay.

claud32010d ago

That's a given... I do not see rockstar passing that up

GTA V Will Go Next-Gen... PC version.

MuhammadJA2010d ago

The console kiddies disagree with you.

OneAboveAll2009d ago

Of course we will. Do you think we are stupid? We all know the PC version will be a crappy port.

clarkdef2009d ago

Why are console owners kiddies mate? How the hell are kiddies affording to buy these machines and the games that go with them?

Yes the PC version will look better I have GTA4 on PC and it does look better, it does this annoying frame skip thing constantly but it still looks better. Still prefer it on the ps3 for what reason I have no idea, just do.

Pintheshadows2010d ago

And it will be called GTA6. Probably.

What makes people think they will release their new consoles in 2013?

If they announce it at E3 2013, it won't be released till late 2014. Nintendo announced the WiiU at E3 2011, minor stuff. Then at E3 2012, they showed more and it was released in November 2012.

They always do that. They show it at E3 and it gets release the year after. They don't just come in at E3, show it and announce it's gonna be released in 3 months. Unless of course, they're releasing a revision of a console already out (like PS3 slim and 360 Slim)

Don't listen to devs like Crytek who says they need new consoles. First party devs are still pulling more power out of them every games they release. Devs like Crytek need to start optimizing their engines.

Yes, you may be making a game that takes 100% of the console's power, but it's probably not optimized and the code is garbage that takes too much ressources. If you had optimized it, your 100% could become anywhere from 50% to 90% depending how bad it was).

The fact that First party devs can still do wonders with 6 years hardware means we don't necessarly need them yet. Also, the WiiU isn't as good as a PS3 or 360, so they really don't need to hurry. It will take about 2 or 3 years before they learn how to use the WiiU and make multiplatforms looks as good as PS3 and 360. No rush, no need to push a new console out right now.

"At E3, Sega announced that the Saturn was released the same day as the press conference in the US. Their strategy was to release the console early so they could get a strong base before Sony released their console in September."

Strange things have been known to happen. Of course that was back in '95, and they made a couple mistakes such as not informing developers of the launch so they could have games ready, and the lack of wide-spread internet meant a 20-30 day delay for a lot of gamers who got their news from magazines back then.

However, it is possible... That was my main point.
