The biggest game of the year won't be at E3 and is not even coming to the next generation of consoles. GTA V in September is set to be one of 'the biggest and most important launches of the current console generation,' says Take-Two.
No...but it would help the sales if you ported them over...i am either waiting for pc or for it to be on next gen system
I would love a demo from them haha, did we ever have a Gta demo before?
it would help sales, but no their profits as it would cost a shitload to port these over to a new console now.
If they had a PC version of GTA 5 it would be very easy to port it since the hardware is the exact same architecture as current PCs. My guess is there going to release an "enhanced" version with better textures, dx11 features like tesselation, possibly physx, more AI roaming the world, etc for PC and next gen consoles.
I bet they wait a year and drop DLC 1 pack + enhanced version on PC, and next gen consoles.
@hdshatter They will probably release it on PC, but not next gen. They never released San Andreas on the 360 or the PS3, and it came out around the time the 360 was released. If it did come to next gen, it wouldn't have physx, as that is a Nvidia technology, and Nvidia isn't having anything to do with consoles right now lol.
Yeah GTAV will have no problem selling a ton. For once a game might even wipe the floors with COD. I'll probably hold off for a ps4 version too.
It won't hurt their sales because its coming to PS4 and xbone as well.
Take 2 seems rather cynical about next gen.
Not being cynical just keeping it real... I wan't GTA V on a console I already own. I'm not interested in buying a new console for that. I'm waiting till tax season next year to get my PS4, Hopefully by that time all (If any) the launch problems will be ironed out.
whoever thinks that the new consoles would effect GTA is a fool.
More like GTA V will hurt PS4 and Xbox One sales since the game would have convinced people to upgrade.
GTA SA came out right before the PS3 and it didn't have an issue selling
San Andreas came out 2 years before the PS3. Also the PS3 wasn't even announced when San Andreas came out.
Developers doing a new thing to get more sales instead of evolve. They release the big games for ps3 near or after the ps4 release date. It's a bad thing for Next generation consoles. Instead of making these games better and convince people to move on they are taking a last stand just for miney even though they can make them much better. This means GTA/GT/MGS/GOW/PES..Etc will take long time to be made for next generation.
What he said is true if you replace PS3 with the 360. San andreas came out in june of 2005, and the 360 game out in that november.
How would it even hurt what isn't even gonna be out yet.
Because the game will still be on store shelves when next gen releases...takes awhile to sell milions of games
GTA are possibly the most overrated games ever. The name alone carries the series to get more love then they actually deserve from people. Red Dead was much better then GTA4, and probably better then GTA5 will be. Really how many of you even finish the game, very few, I know I didnt the last 3 I played. Go back and play 4, OMG the gameplay isnt even decent, its beyond bad.
That's a cool story. Truly one to be shared with everyone. You should probably not even comment on articles of games you have no intrest in though.
Well my remarks kind of go with the arrogance Take Two has in regards to GTA. Hence why its a comment for an article like this.
Ok? Go play CoD
So bourne you bought at least 3 GTA and never finished them, yet something compelled you to still buy and play it. Either your just stupid or you enjoyed playing the game regardless of whether you were intrigued by the story to finish it. I myself finished 3 GTA games and thought the last one was very good but didnt think it held up to GTA standards in terms of gameplay felt like there wasnt much to do out of the story line like the others. With that said not sure I will buy this one unless they release a ps4 version which I am hoping they will or I will just wait to borrow from a friend when they done.
Yeh fell into the hype = ( Plus its nostalgia like, I still remember buying GTA3 when places would sale M rated games to whoever.
The majority is never right. Just look at the desperate disagree`s. It`s even proved rockstar payed ign for their review. But that doesn`t matter much. If you have an IQ above 45 you understand this game-series is trash from beginning to end. Some of the radio-music is good though.
I wouldn't count on that. Everyone knows they will eventually release it for next gen...
If anything it will hurt next gen console sales
GTA 5, Watch Dogs, GT6, COD Ghost, BF4 on current gen consoles will hurt next gen console sales
Saying that GTA5 is "not even coming to the next generation of consoles" seems like an overbroad statement. Sooner than later, there is bound to be a next-gen version since it's unlikely that Take Two will sit out the next five years running on old hardware. Since my latest XBox is showing signs of serious wear (after just 4 years), i'll miss having a state-of-the-art GTA 5 to play on a new console. But them's the breaks, for now. Meanwhile i will pre-order Battlefield 4, Watch Dogs, among others, for next-gen gaming entertainment -- and wait for Take Two to catch up.
GTAV for PS3 = $60 GTAV for the PS4 you don't even want because there are no other games worth getting for it and it doesn't really do anything new, but goddamn, you just HAD to have the newest console as soon as it came out = $400-500? Ditto for 360/One. Gee, I wonder which will sell better. Huh.
I think it is a little premature and perhaps wishful thinking to suggest next gen won't hurt GTA V sales. I think it really depends on how strong the PS4 and Xbox One E3 presentations are, and how many good titles will be available at launch. It won't affect sales for hardcore GTA fans, but there are many gamers who buy games and don't even complete the campaign. Those gamers (and there are many of them) may prefer the new and shiny to the fifth installment of a title they may or may not have purchased before.
