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

mewhy321440d 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.

CalamityCB1440d 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.

dmeador1440d ago

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

mikeslemonade1439d 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.

timl2411439d 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?

slapedurmomsace1439d 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*

Lykon1439d 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

BiggCMan1440d 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.

snipab8t1440d ago

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

Deadpoolio1439d ago

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

KwietStorm1439d ago

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

Crazyglues1440d ago (Edited 1440d 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..

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

smashman981439d 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.

mohuz21440d ago

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

ZBlacktt1440d 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.

SonyKong641440d 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 = /

FlyingFoxy1440d 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.

zeeman1440d ago

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

Ryto1439d 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!

KwietStorm1439d ago

Most over hyped game in history? lol

Seafort1439d 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.

ZBlacktt1439d ago (Edited 1439d 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.

JunioRS1011440d 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."

Sci0n1439d ago

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

3-4-51439d ago

The gameplay and content is next gen.

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

CultOfPersonality1439d 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,
