Five reasons to be excited about Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V is set to be the biggest GTA of all time. Here are just five reasons of many why you should be beyond hyped for this game. (Culture, Grand Theft Auto V)

I don't need the proof for waiting this game but thank you horror_spooky - you make my day! :)

When it's out for PS4 or PC is when I'll be excited. GTAIV on PS3 was an aliased slideshow so I don't have a lot of faith of great performance from V (especially if they have improved the graphics). Seems a lot of effort to put in to a game who's last version could barely run as intended on current gen consoles.

The engine did look amazing in places though, esp these days on PC with mods and fast GPU/CPU.

This should be ON PS4/PC, then we'll talk.

For PC maybe, you can tell it's for PS3 and 360. (Flat textures.)

If they somehow make it look better, then it better be on PC/or PS4
Polysix  +   298d ago
so it would have to look worse than GTAIV to run better on PS3/360 (in theory) unless they magically got better at coding and made an engine that looked much better while also running much faster on the exact same hardware.

That will be a feat I'll enjoy seeing if they can pull it off! :P

My point is, I'm surprised they are even doing GTAV for current consoles given that they could barely bring their vision to life for IV - not Rockstars fault, more their vision for the world/engine they created pushing things a little too much for current gen (and yes ok maybe a bit of bad optimising if the PC version was anything to go by lol).

This post is neither anti PS3 nor anti Rockstar. I really enjoyed what they did with the engine and graphics but was sad to see it run so slowly on PS3 (I sold my ps3 version, waited/bought PC version only to find that was f*****d performance wise too - only now have I got a fast enough PC to do it justice - i7 + GTX780 lol)

The main reason they are doing GTA V on current gen consoles is the install base. Furthermore, I am pretty sure they have been working on it since they wrapped up GTA IV. They probably didn't want to move the development over to next-gen.
Polysix  +   298d ago
we'll see. Obviously they did it for 'install base' they are going to make millions on this baby!

However, if they can scale it up for PC (eventually) then they should do the same for PS4 and sell even more millions :P (in a year).

My OVERALL point is, that this late in the gen and knowing how badly GTAIV performed, unless they have sorted the frame rate than I can only see this game being nerfed graphically OR running like treacle on 360/ps3 and that would be a shame and a bad way to first experience it compared to PC/PS4 versions that may (or may not) come.

Why I'm getting downvoted for simply stating it would be good/better on a system that could do it justice I don't know. LOL but fair enough!

Because there was really nothing wrong with how GTA IV performed would be my guess. <_<

So all N4G's Hypocrites will stop voting down my comments saying GTA5 will be GOTG and better than TLOU

The last of us will definitely be a tough coockie to chew for any developer out there. To pull off a game that deep its something rare now a days.
horror_spooky  +   298d ago
If it isn't GTA V, it will be The Last of Us

I only need one - Rockstar.

Sorry, just not feeling V as I didn't like IV. It seems to me once you play two or three previous GTA games, you've played them all. I would have preferred seeing Rockstar focus their efforts on developing Manhunt 3 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
horror_spooky  +   298d ago
Where could they go with Red Dead 2?
Volitiel  +   297d ago
Warning: Red Dead Redemption end-game SPOILER below:

A sequel could continue a new story with Jack Marsden (John's son) as it does at the end of the game. Also, I recall John had a sketchy past which could make for story elements for his son Jack, or perhaps a new character as the central focus. There is also the prequel option, but I'm not that big of a fan of prequels.

Well here's to hoping they do a well made PS4/XBO/PC version with all the DLC included in 2014.

But yeah I'm still getting it on PS3 or 360 in the meantime.
