Should Fans be Compensated for GTA V Delay?

With the delay to GTA V's much anticipated release (1) should fans be compensated; and (2) in what way? (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I think we could expect some fresh info a bit quicker, but that's about it!
MooseWI  +   1004d ago
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..
Wuket  +   1004d ago
Yeah they've been pretty quiet of late... I dunno how they were ever going to make the Spring release anyway!
HammadTheBeast  +   1004d ago | Well said
Compensated? wtf is this?
Enemy  +   1004d ago
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.
JackBNimble  +   1004d ago
I am hoping for the samething.
KaBaW  +   1003d ago
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.
JeromeNtheHouse  +   1003d ago
So dumb... Why is this even a question?
Killabites  +   1004d ago
I lost intrest in GTA V dont know why?
fermcr  +   1004d ago
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.
torchic  +   1003d ago
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.
crimsonfox  +   1004d ago
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.
omi25p  +   1004d ago
its still easily my most wanted game.

I still play GTA IV all the time.
knifefight  +   1004d ago
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.
MikeMyers  +   1004d ago
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.
Stunt  +   1004d ago
Fans are already being compensated with a better polished game. Or did you want a buggy product?
GamersRulz  +   1004d ago
No, don't be crybabies.
ziggurcat  +   1004d ago
My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante  +   1004d ago
I'd rather be compensated for FFvs13.
Sameh  +   1004d ago
GTA V itself is enough compensation
BlackPrince 42  +   1004d ago
Fans compensated for a delay?

What an absurd premise.

Imagine if that'd been the case for DNF.
DarthJay  +   1004d ago
Those were my words exactly. Absolute absurdity.
glennco  +   1004d ago
DUMBEST TITLE EVER. I can't bring myself to click on such an idiotic article. So much stupid just in the title.
Zechs34  +   1004d ago

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...

jjb1981  +   1004d ago
amaguli  +   1004d ago
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.
USMC_POLICE  +   1004d ago
Make it on ps4 and were all squared away!
SDF Repellent  +   1004d ago
If only Sony would make the PS4 backward compatible with the PS3, then the problem is solved.
2pacalypsenow  +   1004d ago
why? we should be grateful they are making a new game they dont have to
Sniperwithacause  +   1004d ago
Yes they do! They are a game development company. They make games or starve. They choose the type of job. Don't be ignorant.
Sniperwithacause  +   1004d ago
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.
KaBaW  +   1003d ago
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.
Root  +   1004d ago
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
aLucidMind  +   1004d ago
"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
Deku-Johnny  +   1004d ago
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?
KaBaW  +   1003d ago
Being awesome. :)
cleverusername  +   1004d ago
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!!!
HarryB  +   1004d ago
(RDR spoilers below)
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.
Indo  +   1004d ago
I expect nothing, as long as it releases im good.
4logpc  +   1004d ago
No. Gamers are not entitle to anything.
wenaldy  +   1004d ago
No, this generation gamers are nothing but whiny crybabies. And lol at the site's name.
Tapani  +   1004d ago
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.
Aleithian  +   1004d ago
Even asking this question is stupid beyond belief.
cyberninja  +   1004d ago
What a stupid article. Sigh...
pr0t0typeknuckles  +   1004d ago
ugh......NO,seriously why is this an article heck why is this even a question.
ginsunuva  +   1004d ago



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 :)
