GTA 5 already 'feels next-gen to us', says Rockstar

Grand Theft Auto 5 may not be confirmed for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One yet, but Rockstar believes that the game already "feels 'next generation'". (Grand Theft Auto V, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

To be honest I'm more hyped for this game than most next gen games.

I think this game looks amazing. Rockstar is awesome. I can't wait to see what they can do with the mighty PS4. Lets just hope that the don't let the lowest common denominator xbone hold back the PS4 versions of their games.

@mew "The lowest common denominator", You may be one of the greatest idiots to have ever graced N4G.
You may have a fanboy pole lodged up your anus, it may make you become single minded and ignore great games other platforms have to offer. Open your mind.
dmeador  +   666d ago
I agree! If they have to have a 4% drop in character hairs I'm gonna be pissed!!!!
mikeslemonade  +   666d ago
Nope, a current gen game is a current gen game. The systems have been maxed out and there's gonna be the usual limitations.
timl241  +   666d ago
Well the fact is its not next gen. I really feel like they're shooting themselves in the foot for not going next gen. I know a lot of people are going to buy this game but I just can't spend $60 on a game I won't touch in a month. They lost a sale from me, and I'm sure from other people who feel the same. They're trying to make it seem like they are a part of next gen gaming but the fact is they're not. They're basically giving the finger to people who are going next gen by releasing the game 2 months before all that happens. Maybe if they didn't push the release date back this wouldn't be an issue.

What great games do xbox have to offer?
slapedurmomsace  +   666d ago

You are assuming that every single gamer is going to upgrade within the first month, where they'll be lucky to have 2-3 million consoles even manufactured before the end of 2013. So most people are using GTA5 and other upcoming current gen titles as buffers until the supply meets the demand, or until they can afford to drop $600 on a system with games.

@ CalamityCB

Honestly your comment was pretty crude, however I couldn't help but laugh. Fanboy pole... *snicker*
Lykon  +   665d ago
i want a fan boy pole in my anus too. no harm in trying new things.
paul-p1988  +   666d ago
Definitely, and with the amount of content in it i will probably be playing it right until i get a PS4 and enter the next gen lol
BiggCMan  +   666d ago
Yea I will no doubt be playing this non-stop for at least a month. And then pretty on and off for the foreseeable future. I can see myself still playing it a year or 2 down the line, which is more than I can say for GTA IV.

Graphically though, the game definitely looks current gen. It doesn't have the amazingly real looking textures we've seen Killzone, InFamous, Watch Dogs, and other next gen games.

But really, it doesn't matter. The game is so ambitious and massive, that it will be larger and more packed with things to do than any next gen game for over a year.
snipab8t  +   666d ago
Agreed. This will be the only game I will buy till christmas.
Deadpoolio  +   665d ago
Arkham Origins says hello...You know you'll buy it with the other 99% of the population
KwietStorm  +   665d ago
Geez, til Christmas? Thank goodness I don't have to ignore all the other releases, voluntarily or not.
Crazyglues  +   666d ago
Yeah isn't that something, I'm so pumped for this game - more than anything...

And it looks so good, it really does feel like a nex gen title... This is going to be one awesome game...

Mark my words, I have a feeling they knock this one out of the park..

I am so hyped for it that right now I don't even feel the need to own a next gen system till next year.
Masterman280  +   666d ago
Couldn't agree more.
mohuz2  +   666d ago
yea, the only next gen game that I'm actually excited about more than GTAV is Monolith Soft's X.
ZBlacktt  +   666d ago
Because you haven't played a Next Gen game? Here's to hoping GTAV is nothing like GTAIV. Most over hyped game in gaming history. You couldn't even trade that crap in at Gamestop.
SonyKong64  +   666d ago
gtaiv had a learning curve that wasn't for all.

once you got it though, it was an amazing game. I even replayed it once I had switched over to ps3 = )

I'm guessing your one of the one's that couldn't get over the lack of arcade style 100mph drift turns = /
FlyingFoxy  +   666d ago
Agreed about GTA IV, it was decent but there were also things wrong with it.

They made a mistake going back to what GTA 3 was, slow animations, dark atmosphere, overall trying to make it more realistic. Vice City and San Andreas were way way better than either IV or GTA 3 in my opinion.

Plus the fact San Andreas has that awesome map and not just dull city, thats why we have the awesome SA-MP on PC. With a map like V's it should be extremely fun as long as it's not restricted.
zeeman  +   666d ago
Agreed GTAIV was disappointing. The episodes fixed a few things but still it lacked the soul of previous GTA games.
Ryto  +   666d ago
@flyingfox Vice City was an absolute dream. Probably one of my favourite games!

I must admit, I was so excited for GTA4 but I never completed it. GTA 5 though... Looks absolutely great!
KwietStorm  +   665d ago
Most over hyped game in history? lol
Seafort  +   665d ago
Actually I have.

Outlast is coming out on PS4 and so is War Thunder but I've already got them on PC.

I'm also looking forward to GTA5 on my PS3.

"Next gen" has nothing to do with graphics. It just refers to the next generation of consoles, nothing more.
ZBlacktt  +   665d ago
As have I Seafort, I spent all last Saturday at PAX Seattle. So I'm strong aware and you are very wrong on the graphics. Not sure why you would even say that. Death wrong.... puzzled.

As if the graphics don't improve over each Gen. In this case, drastically.

Maybe you should do some research on the difference between games coming on the PS3/PS4 and 360/X1. All graphics and details.

JunioRS101  +   666d ago
Well, yeah, but that's because GTA isn't a game. It's a lifestyle.

The release of a new Grand Theft Auto is more akin to a gamer's holiday than simply another great game to play.

It marks the 5th coming of something that will drastically impact your time management for the next few months, and maybe even the next few years.

When you buy a great game, you play it a lot. But usually there's a point where you stop going back to it... Not so with the GTA franchise.

You'll be bored 2 years down the road, and instead of saying, "I don't wanna play _____, so I'll just watch TV", you'll say, "I don't wanna play _____, so I'll just play GTA5."
Sci0n  +   665d ago
I played IV for years so I know V will hold me over for awhile even after I get the PS4.
TheFamous1  +   666d ago
Yes sir!
3-4-5  +   666d ago
The gameplay and content is next gen.

All games should have this much to do, otherwise you can only charge $40-50
CultOfPersonality  +   666d ago
Exactly, I can understand why R* say it feels next gen because they developed on the ps3 and took advantage of its capabilities only a few games look and feel next gen on this gen like uncharted 2 and 3, the last of us,

either way can't wait
Deadpoolio  +   665d ago
Well the translation of this is NO we are not going to waste our time porting or creating another version of GTA V for PS4/One80, please stop asking us....
Rainstorm81  +   665d ago
Hell Yea especially the launch games...... on either console.

Now down the road that's a different story
Nafon  +   665d ago
you are not alone.
Jovanian  +   666d ago
The gameplay? Nothing really new except bowling 2.0 in the form of pointless scuba diving and what not

The graphics? The game is hideous and suffers immensely by the decade old console technology, and we haven't even seen the performance of it yet first hand

not much 'next-gen' about this game imo
IHassounah  +   666d ago
So a gameplay and graphics that is even better than other game coming out on the PS4 and the Xbox One is BS ?
Jovanian  +   666d ago
I already addressed gameplay is same old stuff, but graphics better than all upcoming PS4 and Xbox one games? That my friend is absurd. The game looks hideous, every screenshot is sub-hd and yet still displays aliasing out the patoot, poor textures, poor details, bad view distance...this game looks anything but good
Deadpoolio  +   665d ago
Yeah NO, just NO....Neither system especially the 360 has anything left.....This game wont touch what will be possible at launch of PS4/One80 or what they will do down the line...
IHassounah  +   665d ago
@Deadpoolio ; fanboy ? looks like it cause your calling the 360 unpowerful no more and your also calling the Xbox One an Xbox 180 .
And yes this game have smoother gameplay and graphics than most next generation games I saw

extermin8or  +   666d ago
Well I don't think the game looks as bad as you make out HOWEVER ign etc have said the trailers and stuff look better than the game does in the flesh although it still looks good for the hardware it's on. R* games are never the pinnacle of graphics anyway although I think many people will be dissappointed by what it actully looks like when you have it.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   666d ago
"not much 'next-gen' about this game imo"

That's because you are looking at the statement from a graphical view (which is still very impressive given that it is running on current gen). In terms of ambition, size, scope, detail it is definitely next gen. I think people take videogames for granted these days and are so quick to judge and bad mouth without thinking about how privileged we are to play games like GTA, games in which the devs put years of their lives into to create detailed and authentic game worlds.

And then the only thing you can notice are "poor textures" and "poor details" and "bad view distance" without being able to notice how fun the games looks and how lucky we are to be able to play these games. Sigh.

Pointless scuba diving?

In what way is it pointless? Its a feature in the videogame, completely optional. If that's pointless then i guess skydiving is too, or driving a car, or a plane or a boat.....but guess what? Those things MAKE UP THE GAME!

Just because YOU think something is pointless doesn't deter from the fact that millions of people (myself included) are going to love scuba diving and finding shipwrecks at the bottom of the ocean, sounds anything but pointless to me.

I wonder if you would love the game if it was announced for PC, i think that if it was, the thought of you being able run the game on "ultra settings" would suddenly change your opinion on the game.

Kayant  +   666d ago
When you start talking about "Sub-par HD", "poor textures" and "poor details" about 7+ year old hardware then it's oblivious consoles are not for you.
And how is gameplay the same when you hadn't played the game yet. SMH.

My friend stay on your ultra powerful PC because am sure if GTA V was announced for PC and was a good port your tone will be different.
FlyingFoxy  +   666d ago
Hopefully the multiplayer isn't half baked when it comes to PC, and exactly like or better than SA-MP is, with at least 64 players for that big map.

I agree, if these screenshots are not BS, PC shots, or taken from DEV kits with more ram than yes GTA5 along with MGS5 might be the best looking games this year. Oh almost forgot about Lost Souls looks impressive as well.
#11 (Edited 666d ago ) | Agree(3) | Disagree(4) | Report | Reply
CuddlyREDRUM  +   666d ago
MGS5 isn't out this year, and just about everything you have seen from the game is "game engine gameplay" taken from PC.

The crappy looking stuff is actual console gameplay.
hollabox  +   666d ago
I don't think I've seen MGS5 look crappy at all from all the videos and screenshots. Always been a big MGS fan so the wait for this game is killing me. But right now I have so many games I need to beat its probably good MGS5 does not come out until next year.

I don't know what "feels next gen" means, but I like what I see from GTA V. It will be interesting to see what a game like Watch_Dogs brings to the open world genre by comparison.

Definitely looking forward to this game. Does anyone think this may end up as the biggest selling GTA yet?
mafiahajeri  +   666d ago
Tough to say but I think it has a good chance, people can't wait for next gen and they need something to tide them over and that's where GTA V comes in...
MonkeyOne  +   666d ago
Nice try Rockstar ...

It's not next gen ...

Don't ... just don't ...
isa_scout  +   666d ago
After watching the GTA Online video, this game looks more innovative than anything at launch on the next gen systems. I'm getting a PS4 at launch, but if I had to choose between GTA5 and getting my PS4 at launch; I'd hold off a bit longer for my PS4. Everything about this game screams, "AMAZING".
CuddlyREDRUM  +   666d ago
You bought the Max Payne 3 season pass, didn't you?
dmeador  +   666d ago
So I'm curious, do you guys think they will announce it for next gen in say, November? I'm voting no, bc I think it would piss of the fan base a little, and would be a little sneaky. I would like if they did, granted there is like a $10 upgrade fee, and your save transfers
ZBlacktt  +   666d ago
PS4 = 10x more powerful then a PS3. Yeah.... yeah. They are aware millions are going to shift right over to Next Gen here in Nov. Mind blowing graphics and features. A way better controller on the PS4. But yeah, GTA V will do very well still. It's a great hype game like COD.
-EvoAnubis-  +   666d ago
And given this fact, can you imagine what they'll do on actual next-gen hardware? PRETTY PLEASE bring GTA Online (at least) to the PS4/XB1. This is the only game I can think of when all of those video/share features will come in handy.
HugoDrax  +   666d ago
Yet you took the same control scheme and shooting mechanics from Max Payne 3, and copied it directly over to GTAV?. Still BS! The only reason this game is being released on current gen is because of the install base, nothing else. I guarantee if MS & SONY revealed they both have a total of over 20million pre orders R* would be announcing GTA5 for next gen. It's always about the money, and if it don't make dollars, it don't make sense......

I bet the next-gen version they are developing in secret feels like 'next-gen' too.
