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

mewhy321505d ago

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.

CalamityCB1505d ago

@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.

dmeador1505d ago

I agree! If they have to have a 4% drop in character hairs I'm gonna be pissed!!!!

mikeslemonade1505d 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.

timl2411505d 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.

Shane Kim1505d ago

What great games do xbox have to offer?

slapedurmomsace1505d 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.

thereapersson1505d ago

@ CalamityCB

Honestly your comment was pretty crude, however I couldn't help but laugh. Fanboy pole... *snicker*

Lykon1504d ago

i want a fan boy pole in my anus too. no harm in trying new things.

paul-p19881505d 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

BiggCMan1505d 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.

snipab8t1505d ago

Agreed. This will be the only game I will buy till christmas.

Deadpoolio1505d ago

Arkham Origins says hello...You know you'll buy it with the other 99% of the population

KwietStorm1505d ago

Geez, til Christmas? Thank goodness I don't have to ignore all the other releases, voluntarily or not.

Crazyglues1505d ago (Edited 1505d 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..

||.........___||............ ||

smashman981505d ago

Rockstar knocks pretty much everything out 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.

mohuz21505d ago

yea, the only next gen game that I'm actually excited about more than GTAV is Monolith Soft's X.

ZBlacktt1505d 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.

SonyKong641505d 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 = /

FlyingFoxy1505d 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.

zeeman1505d ago

Agreed GTAIV was disappointing. The episodes fixed a few things but still it lacked the soul of previous GTA games.

Ryto1505d 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!

KwietStorm1505d ago

Most over hyped game in history? lol

Seafort1504d 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.

ZBlacktt1504d ago (Edited 1504d 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.

JunioRS1011505d 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."

Sci0n1505d ago

I played IV for years so I know V will hold me over for awhile even after I get the PS4.

3-4-51505d ago

The gameplay and content is next gen.

All games should have this much to do, otherwise you can only charge $40-50

CultOfPersonality1505d 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,

Syntax-Error1505d ago

R O C K S T A R......YOU ROCK!

showtimefolks1505d ago

okay RS but hear this i am willing to pay now and pay full price again for a next gen copy

either way can't wait

Deadpoolio1505d 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....

Rainstorm811505d ago

Hell Yea especially the launch games...... on either console.

Now down the road that's a different story

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

IHassounah1505d 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 1505d 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

Deadpoolio1505d 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...

IHassounah1504d 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

Yea what Scarface7 said, Go fuck ur self!!!

extermin8or1505d 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.

GarrusVakarian1505d ago (Edited 1505d 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.

GarrusVakarian1505d ago (Edited 1505d ago )

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.

yezz1505d ago

-__- Tell me, what games are good then ?

Kayant1505d 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.

FlyingFoxy1505d ago (Edited 1505d 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.

thetruthbomb1505d ago

I think ur a drunk! This game looks like anything but what u said! Solid gameplay great freaking characters and a great storyline. The online from the looks of it is almost never ending awesomeness! U must be doing something if u don't think so! Or u must be an xbug/xbot!!!

Truth1505d ago

Not sure if you're trolling or you're going for stupidest comment ever posted on N4G which wouldn't be quite that big of an accomplishment.

This game is looking to be literally the best game this gen

CuddlyREDRUM1505d ago

Because most of what they have shown is off PC.

Theendgame1505d ago

A Pc with the specs of 7yr old consoles.... or maybe the consoles themselves.

_QQ_1505d ago

Because "Next Gen" won't be that different.
