sep 17/nov2013 or no release date just holiday's 2013.why would people need to miss gta when it comes out before the new systems?

yeahokchief1776d ago (Edited 1776d ago )

we won't.

there's going to be an awful lot of ps4s and xb1s collecting dust for a few months. mine included. im actually thinking i may sell my ps4 for profit over christmas while i play gta v and then just buy a bundle later.

You'll say that yeahokchief until you see a few games running on the new hardware. It will be hard to put down that smooth new DS4 once you pick it up. Watch_Dogs on my shiny new PS4 is a must. And with Killzone at launch and Infamous Second Son soon after, those are can't miss for me. I will hang onto my 360 and my PS3 but that PS4 is day one for me. I'm just not sure which system (360 or PS3) I will be buying GTA for.

B-radical1776d ago

Just plug the 360 into the xbox 1 and ur sweet

princejb1341776d ago

Well I'm gonna wait hoping it releases on ps4
My final game was last of us now I'm just waiting till next gen

Even if rockstar decides not to port it into next gen is ok ill live, is just a game

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1776d ago

same here my last game was Tlou.. after i beat it i sold everything i had. im hoping that a week or month after it launches R* comes out and says it will be on PS4... if not thats fine ill play GTA6 next gen and be more excited for it..

i was excited for GTA5 then they annouced next gen so i lost hype for it on this generation

MWong1776d ago

Why hold off on the next-gen consoles for GTA V? I know it's going to be a great game, but that won't stop me from playing my PS4 over the holidays. Besides by the time PS4/XBone comes out I will probably be more than half way through GTA.

I am going to get tons of thumbs downs for this but I am not buying GTA V unless they make a PS4 version or you can stream PS3 version day 1 on PS4

zyphee1776d ago

No ps4 version...ps3 version wont be streamed until early to mid 2014 good luck waiting

LOGICWINS1776d ago

"good luck waiting"

I'll happily wait. I'll get the same experience...just at a discount :)

Btw, can you provide me with a link to where Rockstar said that there would NEVER be a PS4 version of GTAV?

RGDubz1776d ago

Been telling everyone, GTA V will be on PS4/Xbox180 along side the PC version, Rockstar doesn't want to hurt current-gen sales so they're telling you otherwise.

Only way GTA V doesn't drop on the PS4/Xbox180 is if all of a sudden Rockstar starts hating money.

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt1776d ago


i feel the same way thats why they havent come out and said it yet like a positive NO its not coming next gen

Muerte24941776d ago

get Watchdogs for your ps4 and GTAV for your ps3?

LOGICWINS1776d ago


Maybe he's not interested in Watch Dogs?

310dodo1776d ago (Edited 1776d ago )

I have to buy other people gifts too.

plus rent, gas, etc...

Rusty5151776d ago

The GOTY edition could be for PS3/PS4 and 360/X1.

PSN_ZeroOnyx1776d ago

I'll own this game this gen BC it will be great. But I'm also looking forward to the next GTA on PS4 :)

RickHiggity1776d ago

Going to get it so I have something to play for two months.

thekhurg1776d ago

I lost interest in this version once I learned there were three main characters that you swapped around during gameplay.

I play these types of games for the immersion, and have always enjoyed the single character control. I'm sure the story will be amazing but I'll be passing on it and hoping that this isn't the direction that Rockstar is going to take the franchise going into next gen.

N7Lukas1776d ago (Edited 1776d ago )

You don't HAVE to do that you know?

I didn't like the sound of it either when i first heard but from that trailer its executed really well and i think ill wanna mix it up in free roam. If you can trust anyone to innovate without messing the game up its R*

Seems like a really stupid reason to pass on the next game in one of the biggest video-game series of all time. Especially since its not a mandatory requirement to do so.

If anything, it adds 3 options to get immersed in, instead of just one.

Am_Ryder1776d ago

They obviously won't have just made the decision to have three playable characters without being informed of the outcome.

They will have tested this for years. They will have tried other options. And ultimately, they will have found the three PC's will work better for the player.

Sure, immersion is important. But how does it feel when you accidentally bump into a police car, and immediately get caught in a 10 minute unwanted car chase? How does it feel when you flip your car and get stuck in the middle of the countryside? The three-character option will let you completely bypass these issues. It'll prevent boredom, frustration, and debilitating failure.

Also notice how the characters are doing something PRESENTLY when you switch to them in-game? They're present constantly, doing things even when you aren't playing them.

Isn't that _more_ immersive? The way they've handled the transitions between characters looks incredibly immersive.

skept3k1776d ago

Really? You can play the entire game though one character... Then you can play it 2 more times through the eyes of the other characters.

If anything it adds way more value if you want to play it that way. I love the fact they're will be 3 main characters. You get a 3 very cool unique ways to experience the game.
