GTA V Might Just Prove that We Don’t Need Next-Gen Right Now

CCC Says: "We are on the brink of the next generation of gaming. The hype surrounding the PS4 and Xbox One is palpable, and you can hardly get on the Internet without some sort of contact with “the future of gaming.” But, while progress is an expectation in any technological industry, a move forward is typically only born of necessity due to hardware bottlenecks and limitations. Look, I’m just as excited as the next guy about the dawn of next-gen, but I can’t help but ask–Is it necessary?"

Sure, we don't need next-gen right now. We just need games companies to gamble $265 million dollars on a single game.

Admittedly GTA V isn't really a gamble, but smaller IP's would be.

anyone who believes we truly begin with nex gen before fall 14 is deluding himself.
both ps4/xb1 have a pretty weak lineup so far.
also ,its no secret how most hardware/sofware faults occur in the first year

Depends on what you mean.

Next-gen console starts in a couple of months. In terms of getting a full slate of games out that aren't rushed, true that won't be until next year.

But in terms of raw graphics, PC had 'next gen' many years ago.

So it all depends on what qualifiers you use.

GTAV looks like it has great motion capture. Not to be surprised. It by far looks like the best aspect of their graphics.

But the actual graphics in the commercials are seriously lacking.

Plus if you notice, they don't look like 1024x600 resolution either.

So I would say, for old consoles, if it looked like in the commercials, it would be good for last generation graphics.

But it's pretty obvious we're being sold a bill of goods with them showing something running off a PC, and parading that around as 360/PS3 versions.

I'd buy a PS4 version, so I'll just wait for a PC version.

It's going to be real interesting to see the reviews of the actual gameplay on PS3/360. Everything seems too good to be true for what those consoles can do.

You do realise the resolution for standard TV is nowhere near the resolution of the game right? So no wonder it looks bad on commercials.

I think it looks impressive when you take into account its been made on current gen tech.

Release GTA5 on next gen consoles when re-write the article.

Of course we do.

No other game company transcends the laws of the industry's generations quite like Rockstar do and deliver on such an epic scale.
