Rockstar says Sony's GTAV on PS4 tweet was a typo

GS:Publisher says tweet from Sony UK suggesting upcoming open-world game is coming to next-gen system was just a typo. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS4, Rockstar Games)

Awwww Maaaaan.... I got all excited there. Here's hoping R* are just trying to cover up the truth though. You know how it is!

EDIT. C'Mon Sony man, don't keep messin up with the R*.

I hope it's the leaked information and Rockstar denies it so it won't hurt the PS3 X360 sales.

You know, everything happens for a reason

for this game I'm waiting for the PC version because of the mods, something I wish consoles would allow.
pivotplease  +   733d ago
I like mods in wacky games like unreal tournament but that's about it. The biggest benefit to me is the graphic mods but those obviously cant be done on consoles. I think gta v will be such a large and diverse game that mods will feel unnecessary...and it already looks beautiful.

"Rockstar says Sony's GTAV on PS4 tweet was a typo"

Of course it was...*strokes chin and winks*

Don't worry, it will hit next gen!

They just don't want to hurt the current gen sales for the game. Then, maybe 6 months later, they will say demand is high for a next gen version. Then it will be released, so most of us can buy it again.
Crazyglues  +   733d ago
Yeah what they meant is it's coming later, we didn't mean to release that info yet, we want you to buy the PS3 version first then buy it again in a few months when it comes to PS4

GTA5 is worth 120 to me as long as my gta online stats transfer over I am fine with it.

Didn't Sony say if you bought Selected AAA games on PS3 it would transfer over to the PS4 release at a discounted price when available.... Lets hope!

This is when we all start chanting Bullshit to Rockstar's claim of a typo.
FunkMacNasty  +   732d ago
Rockstar are absolute masters of creating positive publicity for thier games by pulling stunts like this. I'm willing to bet the "typo" was done on purpose, just to get us all talking!

I definitley can't wait until I get a ps4 to get GTAV, but it's nice to know that I'll be able to digitally upgrade from my ps3 version for like $5 on ps4!
stuff  +   733d ago
This sort of thing makes me rethink my desire to get this game day-one. I'll be very upset to get this on PS3 only to have them release it on PS4 a few months later.

I just have this feeling that they aren't saying so to be sure to maximize sales as a Ps4/Xbone port won't be ready in time for launch.
ArchangelMike  +   733d ago
You know that's the truth. The game will eventually come out of PC. We know that much. It makes too much sense that it will eventually come out on next gen consoles. I reason alone. GTA V online.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   733d ago
I don't know. I remember R* saying something about each console generation having it's own universe in the GTA world, meaning while Tommy and CJ exist within San Andreas, they don't exist in GTAV while Niko does exist in GTAV because GTAIV was released on current gen consoles.

Releasing GTA V on next gen consoles would kill that.

That little rule of theirs sucks anyway. I want to see Tommy V again in GTA 6. Best of any of the GTA characters.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   733d ago

I would love for that to happen as well, but my point was that Rockstar would be going against what they initially said by releasing GTAV on next gen consoles. So I think it's unlikely that we will see GTAV on the PS4 and XB1.

I personally would have loved to see CJ make an appearance in GTA5 but given that R* said that they treat each console gen as a different universe we'll probably never see any previous GTA characters in the future.

xPhearR3dx  +   733d ago

Niko exist within the DNA of GTA Online character creation. As does Claude and Misty from GTA III. Two characters in which were released LAST gen.

With such a passion on GTA Online, I HIGHLY doubt they won't release GTA V on PS4/Xbone. They want the game to continue growing forever. People aren't going to want to play on PS3/360 5-6 months after release when everything is coming out on next-gen consoles.

Rockstar would be stupid to not release it. They know what they're doing.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   733d ago

GTA Online isn't really GTA5 though. There's a reason why they call it GTA Online instead of GTA V's multiplayer.

It really doesn't matter to me at all if GTAV ends up on next gen consoles. I was just giving a reason why that might not happen.
xPhearR3dx  +   733d ago

It may not be GTA V, but you're going based of what Rockstar said. Which is "Each console gen has their own universe". GTA Online wasn't around in the GTA III era. You're reason why it might not happen ended when Rockstar announced Claude and Misty is all I'm saying.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   732d ago

I should have went into more detail. Of course GTA Online wasn't around during the GTAIII era because Rockstar didn't come up with concept of GTA Online until now. What I meant by GTA Online not being GTAV is that I think it will be something that will carry over from game to game and generation to generation and eventually become its own game as opposed to it being something you start from scratch every time a new GTA comes out.

Anyway we'll see if it comes out on next gen. Doesn't bother me because I'm getting it day one regardless. I can't wait anymore! The game was suppose to release during the Spring!

Its coming to next gen consoles.

Solution: Wait. Worst case scenario it never makes it to next gen consoles and u pick it up down the line for $20. Thats a win either way.
JRH7783  +   733d ago
I mean, Madden & 2k are still coming to current gen & next gen a few months later. I don't see why GTA couldn't do the same. I want all next gen games so I hope this happens.
ginsunuva  +   733d ago
And they always delay PC because it makes the console versions look a bit inferior. (No I am not a pc elitist, just stating facts)

Kinda true
ExitToExisT  +   733d ago
I'll put the disc of GTA V on my ps3 at 17th of September and will try to see whether the graphics are okay enough for me to play, or looks like a blurry piece of sh*t. If it looks like i assume on consoles, i will wait for the PC or next gen version.

Note: Back in 2008 GTA 4 looked great to me on screenshots, trailers but when i saw the game running on my x360, it looked absolutely terrible. I'm %80 sure the same thing will happen with GTA V.

I'm holding off. Realistically, my life won't be that much more complete by buying a game on day 1. I have other things to do.
Campy da Camper  +   732d ago
But Sony has stated if you own a physical copy of a game that for a nominal fee you will be able to get a digital copy on the ps4. Granted, rock star is being shady about announcing next gen game copies but come on, the best selling multiplat aside from cod is NOT going to be available on a system that already has millions of preorders?

Campy da Camper  +   732d ago
I feel your pain. I was shocked at how good splinter cell blacklist and payday2 are as well. Now I'm like wtf? I want to trade it in due to the sheer cost I have incured buying the ps4 and like 6 games on preorder. I have the system just about paid off and watchdogs but still have infamous, the order, knack, killzone and whatnot to pay off. Plus I'm prob gonna go for the vita bundle if I can at launch if not I'm gonna but it seperatley.

Hits calculator...carry the 1...

$1034.00 Jesus!
GiantFriendlyCrab  +   733d ago
of course they would deny it. Wait till the sales of gtav on current gen drops , they will then announce a next gen version.
KonsoruMasuta  +   733d ago
Sales of GTA on current gen are not going to drop. This game is breaking records in pre-orders and has too much hype surrounding it.

justSumDood  +   733d ago
You only have to look at GTA Online for your answer.
Its too ambitious and theyre planning so much support for its future. Do you really think theyre going to go to all that trouble for a last gen system; a system that will become obsolete a year from now? They plan on adding to the experience for YEARS to come.

OF COURSE theres a PS4/XB1 version
maximus1985  +   733d ago

There is a reason they also stated with up to hundreds of players and so on for GTA Online as well. Next gen version of that will crank it up to a new extreme. :)

You're really starting to fuck up Sony, leave Rockstar games out of the splash zone.
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   733d ago
I will be SHOCKED if GTA V doesn't come out on Xbox one and PS4, literally shocked. Very sad too, because all i have access to is a PS4 in November.

I sold my xbox 2 years ago and my ex-gf refuses to return my PS3 and she lives in another state. I don't want to buy a PS3 for one game!

PC as well, Steam and Amazon don't release digital sales I'm aware of and i'm sure PC had a good amount of those 25 million sales.

It will be on next gen. Just not at launch. Likely 6 months later. They announce it out of the blue somewhere between Now and E3 2014.

Maybe it was a typo, but I believed before that it will end up coming to ps4, most likely around the pc release since those ports will be very similar in nature. Considering how long it will be till gta6, it makes sense to port this game sometime next year since a huge player base looks to be ready to jump into next gen.
ThunderBarracuda  +   732d ago

It's coming to next gen and pc so they can get maximum profits

What if it really was a typo?
Sub-Zero85  +   732d ago
We all know it's coming to next gen at a later date , being one of the biggest franchises in gaming history why would they not release it on next gen and PC the money is there I'm sure they're not going to miss out on that !
