With the delay to GTA V's much anticipated release (1) should fans be compensated; and (2) in what way?
I think we could expect some fresh info a bit quicker, but that's about it!
I agree, release some information or gameplay to get people to stay excited. Games get delayed all the time but money compensated? I don't think so..
Yeah they've been pretty quiet of late... I dunno how they were ever going to make the Spring release anyway!
Compensated? wtf is this?
Lol @ "compensated" like we're entitled and Rockstar should pay for rightfully delaying a game that needed a little extra work. Serious business, folks.
We need reparations for what R* has done to our people!!! \s
i think it got pushed back cuz they want it on the ps4 and the new xbox....and there adjusting to them. i cant see GTA5 not being on next gen consoles.
I am hoping for the samething.
I'd rather they just have released current gen GTA5, first. Then afterwards work on porting to the next gen consoles.
TC at gtacheats is a bit self entitled I think.
So dumb... Why is this even a question?
I lost intrest in GTA V dont know why?
I agree. I'm still interested in GTA5, but I'm not as exited i was 6 months back... don't know why. It just doesn't have the same appeal. I must be getting old. EDIT: No, it's not because of the PS4 (or next Xbox). I read the articles about the game and some of the stories ... and from what i read, i lost some of the interest in the game.
Because PS4. I've lost interest in a bunch of games cause of it.
I can hardly turn my PS3 on anymore. I will get out of this funk but man PS4 has me hooked. it doesn't help that I was never a fan of the current generation of consoles.
Because you're a fool! OT: This is a stupid question. And whoever thought this was a question worth writing an article about needs to choose a different profession and stop wasting people's time. Sorry I just hate people who feel they are entitled to things like this.
its still easily my most wanted game. I still play GTA IV all the time.
They'll be compensated by having a more polished, more complete game that isn't some crappy glitchfest like a Bethesda game. I like that Rockstar is taking care to make sure they put out a quality product. That is my compensation.
Exactly. If the game was broken and they kept delaying a fix that might be a different story but games get delayed all the time.
Fans are already being compensated with a better polished game. Or did you want a buggy product?
No, don't be crybabies.
I'd rather be compensated for FFvs13.
GTA V itself is enough compensation
Fans compensated for a delay? What an absurd premise. Imagine if that'd been the case for DNF.
Those were my words exactly. Absolute absurdity.
DUMBEST TITLE EVER. I can't bring myself to click on such an idiotic article. So much stupid just in the title.
Seriously? Compensated for a delay for OUR benefit? To make it a better polished game? To make the already going to be great GTA V better? Man...Some entitled little... SMH
This has to be the dumbest thing I ever read. No, fans do not deserve compensation for delays at all because they are not the ones working on the game.
Make it on ps4 and were all squared away!
If only Sony would make the PS4 backward compatible with the PS3, then the problem is solved.
why? we should be grateful they are making a new game they dont have to
Yes they do! They are a game development company. They make games or starve. They choose the type of job. Don't be ignorant.
Disagree all u want to. I wasn't say yes they do as in they owe us something. I was saying yes they do have to make new games. Its what they do! I for one am glad they are making a effort in making a better GTA experience for us all.
Actually, he's right. However, you, too, are right.. They hafta make games, but that game doesn't hafta be GTA.
As long as the multiplayer is like SA-MP with over 50+ players on PC and not using GFWL, and not restricted and boring like IV it will be great. I just hope they don't screw up, the SA-MP mod team did a much better job on fun multiplayer with tons of players than Rockstar did on IV's multiplayer.
People make it sound that if they released the game when they were supposed to it would end up like a Bethesda game.....REALLY Come on it wouldn't be that bad I think they should at least give us a new trailer or show off the map
"Released when they were supposed to" It is supposed to be released in September. When it needs and is supposed to be released is when the developers feel it is a finished and polished product, not when the fans demand it. They pushed it back months in advance, not days or weeks prior to the initial release date in March. So many gamers with this "I want it NOW" mentality, these same people then wonder why and complain about so many producers and developers are going for annual releases now; demanding to be milked by corporations and then whining about it later.
Mate...I just meant it in the date it was supposed to be released because I couldn't actually think of the date. Thats why I said it...nothing more, nothing less
That's like the rioters in London a couple of years ago looting things because they think being alive makes them entitled to nice things without earning them. What have you done to deserve being compensated for something you've put nothing into?
Being awesome. :)
Rockstars fans expect their games to get delayed!! I think I should be compensated for reading this 'article' though, I'll never get those 2 mins back!!!
I'm looking forward to red dead redemption 2. I loved the story line of the first one until They killed john marston. Man that game was fun online too. I spent hours just sniping people's horses lol. You know how annoying it is to be on a mission and somone takes your horse out? Man I loved that shit. I gotta go back and play it again.
And then we wonder why people see gamers as immature, self-entitled children; demanding compensation for not getting a game when THEY demand it just because they want it now rather than waiting until it is finished and released is the epitome of self-entitlement.
I expect nothing, as long as it releases im good.
No. Gamers are not entitle to anything.
No, this generation gamers are nothing but whiny crybabies. And lol at the site's name.
This is newsworthy only because the "article" is showing how unbelievably ignorant, selfish and childish gamers can be. I'm ashamed. Maybe I should quit this hobby already... This is just depressing.
Even asking this question is stupid beyond belief.
What a stupid article. Sigh...
ugh......NO,seriously why is this an article heck why is this even a question.
AHHHHHHHH!!! Delay?!????!!!!! WE DEMAND TEH COMPENSATIUNS!!!! HOW DARE ROCKSTAR DELAY MY GAME! Wait, in aMerica, I can file a lawsuit for this. Because 'merica!
'Merica isn't the only place with self-entitled idiots. Then again, only in 'Merica can you file a lawsuit over damn near anything and have a good likelihood of winning (McDonald's coffee woman as an example; robber slips and slices himself on kitchen knife left on homeowner's kitchen counter as another example).
I'll take some gameplay asap :)
I literally laughed out loud when I saw the title. I decided to check the article out anyway, and it turns out it wasn't as bad as I thought. New info about the game will come, I'm sure. It's not like they're going to go completely dark. When I read the title, I thought they wanted free content or something like that. That would be unbelievably stupid. Still, though, the title just captures one of the more concerning trends this gen IMO.
Are you new? Rockstar never makes their original dates. You want compensation? How about a better gaming experience because that's obviously why they delayed it. One thing you can say about Rockstar is yes they're always late, but they rarely if ever ship a game before they're confident it's ready. So move along with your entitled ideas.
The article looks like it was made by a 14 year old blogger.
To the author.... STFU. Ridiculous beyond belief.
I swear some people. I can't wait for GTAV even if it comes after ps4 I wouldn't care I will still play the shi? out of it and I can't wait for what GTA6 will look like on the ps4
Uh... lets see... no!
I know that the delay dissapointed ALOT OF US! but why did they delay it to september and not november or december? isnt that when the ps4 will be released? i have to things to say. 1: They could delay it again till nov or dec to launch with PS4 ( WHICH I DOUGHT ) 2: They will release it on this gen consoles on sep then after 3-7 months they will port the game to the next gen consoles!
Money compensation for a game delay is stupid and you sound overly entitled even mentioning it. If this was the case square enix would be bankrupt from "compensation" over versus 13
No. Moving on...
Not at all. I rather tham delay it and make sure everything alright than release it with ridiculous glitches, bug, etc.
YES ! Release a small gameplay trailer :)
Where the hell does this sense of entitlement come from?
The name of this article demands it not be read. We are consumers. A delay is expected with a game now and again. Especially with one as big as GTA. Compensated? That's absolutely ridiculous and downright foolish to think we deserve to be compensated for a game delay.
Compensated? For what? Sitting around doing nothing? Like there is not other video games to play right now?
What? Why the hell should I be compensated? I think them using that extra time to polish the game and make it a better experience is compensation enough. Like seriously, wtf was this guy thinking when he wrote this article? The game was delayed, big deal. It's not the end of the world. It's Rockstar's game and they have every right to delay it if they feel they need to.
