If Rockstar announces GTA 5 for XB1/PS4, what will your reaction be?

Not official, but most obviously coming, what will you do if Rockstar makes the announcement in the weeks following your purchase of the PS3 or Xbox 360 version. Anger? Happiness? A trip to the store to buy the next gen console? (Grand Theft Auto V, Next-Gen, PS3, PS4, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I'll say "ruvazagebvzchejar!" and jump through the ceiling.
Tony-A  +   723d ago
I would, too. haha

I'm praying that they release a PS4/XBO version. That would make me the happiest gamer alive. I don't see it as being too unlikely, either. The only reason they wouldn't say anything about it just yet is for the sake of jeopardizing some current-platform customers.

If it doesn't happen, I'm hoping to at least have it playable through Gaikai on PS4 next year.

it's definitely gonna happen.
i'm not buying GTA5 but if a next gen episode is happening i might try it out like i did with GTA4 when it first came out.
iamnsuperman  +   723d ago
I will cancel my GTA V preorder,drive up to Scotland, start praying to the building and doing some naked ritual outside and then download it for. My PS3 has been playing up lately. I just hope it survives/stops being a drama queen for GTA
cleft5  +   723d ago
I will be happy and just buy the game twice. It would be great if they did that next-gen upgrade price thing, but if not I will still pay the extra for a next-gen copy.

I would too will be hype if PS4/XBO version happens.

The whole internet will explode because of the hype.
AngryTypingGuy  +   722d ago
My reaction would be to wait until I get my PS4 of course. Any game that comes out for the current gen and next get like the new Assassin's Creed, MGS5, etc., I'll play on PS4 as opposed to my 360 or PS3. Might as well enjoy the best version.
thechosenone  +   722d ago
They have to release a next gen version because that's the only way that I'll be able to play it. :(
Lykon  +   722d ago
I'd pull my pants and trousers to my ankles , lift my t shirt , and jump up and down while spinning in circles so my penis and balls flaps up and down.
ArchangelMike  +   723d ago
I'm fully expecting such an announcement once GTA V launched for current gen consoles. They'll probably announce it early next year for a spring release. I'll probably buy it all over agian for the PS4 :)
christian hour  +   723d ago
Yup I've been anticipating this announcement myself considering every official video released by rockstar so far has not been running on current-gen consoles. The shadows and AA are too good to be current gen from what we've seen so far, most definitely running on PC.

I just wish they'd be more honest about it and show us how it looks on current gen at least. Same goes for Watchdogs :P Sneaky devs!
PeaSFor  +   722d ago
probably upgrade it to ps4 with a fee.
monkey nuts  +   722d ago
I can see them releasing gta online for the next gen of consoles as they've stated that they will constantly be updating and improving the online aspect of the gam for the foreseeable future, and what better place for a gta mmo than on future proofed consoles. Consoles that can host massive amounts of players in a huge persistent world/ map without frame rate dips and such.

I'm not sure what would be more impressive, saying "ruvazagebvzchejar!" from memory, or jumping through the ceiling...

As for me, I'd just wait for a collection that includes all the inevitable DLC. The current-gen version would happily keep me busy in the meantime.
Mystogan  +   722d ago
I wouldn't not be surprised. I'm not gonna get GTA5 for currentgen in fact, the last game I'll buy is Fable Anniversary.
BlueBlood17  +   722d ago
I'd get it for my PS4 instead.
The_Infected  +   723d ago
H*** F****** yes! Sorry I must sensor my excitement.
BattleTorn  +   722d ago
Yup. Mine would be "buy it again!!"
ABeastNamedTariq  +   723d ago
If/when that happens, I'd buy a second copy for PS4. Maybe I could actually get a Special Edition before they all sell out! >:(

I really hope someone cancels their SE preorder, lol.
Dobgamers  +   723d ago
I'll DIE!
The_Infected  +   723d ago
You better die with the game in your hand or you ain't playing it!

If they announce that then awesome! I do want a PC version more though, it would look stunning and imagine all the mods!
christian hour  +   723d ago
The PC version does look stunning, that's all they've shown so far :P

No way those are the graphics for current-gen, not a hope in hell.

Either way no matter how it ends up looking on current-gen, its gonna be a beast of a game.
Adexus  +   723d ago
It was all PS3 footage, not PC.
Nafon  +   722d ago
Why is there no down bubble for being dumb? lol
christian hour  +   722d ago
I wish my PS3 could deliver graphics taht crisp. Sure it had ps3 face buttons show up on the HUD but PC games do that too when you connect a 360 or ps3 controller.

A down bubble for being dumb would be great, because a lot of people here seem to think the graphic fidelity of GTA5 shown so far has been on current-gen consoles? I'm sorry but it was most definitely PC, show me one game running on ps3 with shadows, AA and draw distance that good and in a game with this sort of scale? Even The Last Of Us which is one of the best looking games this gen didn't have shaders or AA that good.
Withdreday  +   722d ago
You sound butthurt that this isn't releasing on PC. I can see it from a mile.
christian hour  +   722d ago
Thats funny, I don't have a PC :) i do have a ps3 and a 360 though, and I'll be buying it on 360 simply because the majority of my friends use XBL and I cannot wait to play GTA Online.

And just because they haven't announced this for PC, doesn't mean it won't be getting a PC release. It's an inevitability, and if you notice one of the most recent GTA stories on this site is about pop-in, bad AA and frame-rate issues with regards to the 360 version, the PS3 version will probably fair no better.

They wouldn't be the first dev to show off the "ps3" version and later have it turn out to be the game on PC with a controller hooked up. I just don't want people slamming the game's graphics when it doesn't live up to whats been shown, I've seen that happen to too many games this gen already from people who don't know any better(BF3 comes to mind, as does AC3)
Da Ill One  +   723d ago
If it's more than just a graphical update i'd be happy as hell and double dip, if it's purely graphic's then I'd be content with my PS 3 version
Lukas_Japonicus  +   723d ago
I would think it would just be a graphical update. What else could they do?
Nekroo91  +   723d ago
increase the amount of players online probably
ps4tw!! is my reaction..
claud3  +   723d ago
Do not care, because i am very happy with the current gen version
BattleReach  +   723d ago
Exactly. I'm sticking with my one-year old Xbox 360 Slim. The only game I've played the last 6 months was IV. GTAV will be the last game I'll buy.

Edit: why disagrees?

I didn't disagree but maybe the person who did has played more games and not on a slim, ergo, your statement would warrant a disagree as it applies to their life.

I never disagreed with your post.

To me, it makes no sense spending over 400+ or 500+ on a next gen console for a game i can get on current gen
user7402931  +   723d ago
i'll finally sell my ps3 and hope to god dark souls 2 gets a ps4 port.
blue_flowers  +   723d ago
same, ill be finally able to upgrade to the ps4 and turn in my xbox360. hopefully tgs shows a new yakuza and dark souls for ps4!
Hellsvacancy  +   723d ago
GTAV, Beyond, FFXHD and Dark Souls 2 are the only reasons i'll be holding on the my PS3, soon as i've finished those (platinums etc) i'll make the leap to next gen

If they're announced for the PS4 ill drop my PS3 round to my Dads house whilst i'm on my way to buy a PS4
user7402931  +   723d ago
i hope they let us know soon, times a wastin.
ZHZ90  +   722d ago
I'll just keep my PS3 to wait for KH HD Remix 2.5, but I won't touch PS3 games(till KH 2.5 because I'll be owning PS4 by the time) and wait for PS4 version of GTAV!

My reaction will be.. and PC?

Tbh, I imagine it will come out within the next 18 months, it will have a nice graphical tweaking, include whatever DLC that gets released on current gen consoles and release on XB1, PS4 and hopefully PC.
Vip3r  +   723d ago
Will it mean a good PC port too?

I'm guessing GTA5 will be released on the PS4 XB1 and PC next year sometime when the current gen sales die down a bit.

R* will be silly not to release it on the next gen consoles. Would make them another huge fortune and will make all next gen console owners happy as can be.

FrigidDARKNESS  +   723d ago
I doubt it to expensive to make for next gen console, however if their were a GTA VI than it will be for next gen consoles.
Nekroo91  +   723d ago
how isit to expensive to make it for next gen consoles its just the current version with better graphics , same as PC
FrigidDARKNESS  +   722d ago
FIrst of all the insta base will be low on next gen consoles. It will take a few years for the install base to grow.
KwietStorm  +   723d ago
The game is already made. They just have to port and optimize it. A drop in the bucket for the money they'll make in the first day alone.
Angeljuice  +   722d ago
I think the next gen versions are already 95% done, just getting a final spit and polish before being announced. I hope so because I'm not getting it on PS3 for that very reason.
Nekroo91  +   722d ago
and the low player base affects the cost because?????
they re making the pc port and from pc to next gen consoles the costs are almost nothing they just have to code the game everything else is done
FrigidDARKNESS  +   722d ago
Yes, its not cheap to port games over. Is it worth the time and money for 2k ames. Keep in mind every next gen console sold that gamer may not be a GTA fan that why im saying a low install base will be a loss to 2k games and the expense of printing packaging the game is an added expense.

That would probably work better, I'm pretty sure Microsoft has incorporated a coin slot on the X1 (for all the nickels and dimes).

Pre-order right away! Not day 1 - I'll actually go for 'hour 1' pre-order.

-EvoAnubis-  +   723d ago
As long as they have a digital upgrade program like Activision and EA have, nothing would change for me. Would still get the current gen version, play the hell out of it, and then do the $10 upgrade when it came to PS4.

Elation. GTA is almost tailor made for next gen standards like streamlined loading, game recording, built in social features and challenges, instant on, draw distances, no pop in, all that unified memory @_@ this is the last piece to the puzzle for me.
Mr_Butata  +   723d ago
So what you are saying is that current gen is next gen? LOL

Because PS3 will handle all those things :P
Sketchy_Galore  +   723d ago
I'd be supremely pissed off if they announced it weeks or even two months after I bought it for PS3. I would feel like I was duped into playing the inferior version just so they could make a little more money and I'd start considering Rockstar another of those companies that used to be great but ruined themselves with money grubbing and screwing over the consumer.

If it was announced quite a few months down the line and didn't release until at least a year from today I wouldn't mind too much because even if I knew it was coming I'd probably have given in and played the inferior version anyway rather than waiting over a year.

I think basically if I find out they've been intentionally holding back information on a relatively soon next gen version I will feel angry and betrayed.

If they'd known all this time, but held off until they've sold some PS3/360 versions I'd be pissed.

Depends. Am I still even playing GTAV at that point? What kind of enhancements will there be? I bought GTAV digitally on PSN, will I be able to stream it through Gaikai? If not, can I upgrade for CHEAP?

Unlike some of the geeks that made retarded comments about jumping to the ceiling, I would just buy it for a next gen console.

Sadist3  +   723d ago
And to the people that feel betrayed, how the hell can you feel betrayed by a company that never swore loyalty to you? I crack up when people use the words "trust" and "loyal" when talking about game companies. You're gonna trust a company that won't shed a tear if you were to die tomorrow? That's pretty funny, and weird. Don't know what's wrong with people.
rluttrell  +   722d ago
It's a different level of trust. If a company doesn't rip you off then you will trust them to not rip you off. If they have ripped you off, you won't trust them with your money. It's not on a life-and-death scale, and nobody on here except for you is making it out to be.
