GTA V Next Gen and PC Versions Should Already Exist

Because of the difference between current gen and next gen/pc architectures the porting time would be quite high. So unless Rockstar plans to release PS4/Xbox One and PC version (if at all) in 2014, they already exist. (Grand Theft Auto V, Next-Gen, PC, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

The fact we haven't seen any evidence is because of how good R* are at keeping things under wraps. There are definitely PC/Next Gen versions, next gen is too big of an opportunity to miss. I have no doubt that this game would be a system seller if it was bundled with a PS4/Xbox One.

I'll get it for the PS4 one day i'm sure, for now the PS3 version will keep me happy whilst I wait for FFXHD and Dark Souls 2

I want to make sure I finish this current generation of games before I adopt a new

Yea but the author is talking about a completed game for Next Gen and PC. Not just almost finished code :) But yea you are right.
GarrusVakarian  +   880d ago
I said they are good, not perfect :p
yeahokchief  +   880d ago
Dark Souls 2 is going to be so good.

I have no regrets about cancelling my PS4 between GTA V and Dark Souls 2.

I think GTA Online will be next gen but I wouldn't be so sure about GTA V. Rockstar has never done a port. They're always focused on something bigger and better.

I think it's best to keep GTA V exclusive to PS3 and 360 and go ahead with GTA Online for PC,PS4 and XB1.

yeah. There is no doubt it will be in the final stages for PC/X1/PS4.
Why would they hurt their own sales by releasing it to next gen so early.
Give it 6-9 months (as with all previous GTAs) and it will be released.
SJPFTW  +   880d ago
I find it unlikely. Most people who are going to buy XOne & PS4 have either a 360 or PS3 already. Unlikely they will hold out on the biggest most hyped game ever. Rockstar has been working hard on GTA 5 since the 4th one, so the game is optimized for current gen consoles.

If anything they will probably go full gear and start work on RDR2 or GTA6 and make a true next gen game that takes full advantage of next gen hardware.

There is no excuse to not have the pc version release now.. so if alot of pc gamers pirate it then they have themselves to blame.
RumbleFish  +   880d ago
I would not say that R*'s release tactics are justifying piracy, but I too find it annoying that I have to wait for the PC version. I played GTA IV on PS3 and on PC, but this time I will wait for the PC version.
KYU2130  +   880d ago
I agree it would be a system seller, But i don't think next-gen versions of this games exist (i could be massively wrong). If anything we could see GTAV online only on next-gen console in the first part of Q1 2014 as R* are touting GTAV online as a separate but equal experience. Doing so would give them time to pull out code that ties the online experience to the disc based game.

This would also allow them to offer a next-gen title early in the cycle (especially since they have already stated that GATV online will be free). While it is a multi-platform title it would be a large feather in Sonys Free to play cap.
CuddlyREDRUM  +   880d ago
The fact you call Rockstar (R*) is just a show at how well you would lick their shit.
GarrusVakarian  +   879d ago
Lol, what?

Nevermind, just checked your comment history, being angry, cynical and miserable seems to be the norm for you. You should see someone about that.

A Wii U Version of GTA V should exist to, but that ain't gonna happen neither.
noctis_lumia  +   880d ago
does anyone play that "next gen thing" anymore ?
Murad  +   880d ago
Dude I still want to play it. No need to be harsh or rude or even worse, act like it's a plague, since in reality, it's trying something different than the PS4 and Xbone.
CocoWolfie  +   880d ago
im expecting at least a downloadable last gen version seeing as the next gen aint that compatible, but i doubt ill complain anyhow :p
Angeljuice  +   880d ago
Although I have been saying this for a while, I never trust a 'journalist' who is so bad at spelling and lacks basic grammatical skills. What differentiates this person from anybody on n4g? He's incompetent at his job/hobby, so why believe he knows anything about any other industry?
cococabana  +   880d ago
Chinese scientists wouldn't be able to spell half as good as this guy yet they would know more about architecture then you ever could. Putting it as bluntly as you did ^^
xharrypotterx  +   880d ago
*his spelling
*so why should we

Using your logic you are incompetent and thus your opinion should and will be discarded.
Angeljuice  +   880d ago
Journalism is not my chosen field. If I were a journalist I wouldn't publish something full of mistakes like that. Your corrections are incorrect also.
Do you know what a journalist does? He communicates using words. Words are his tools. Do you trust a tradesman who can't use the tools of his trade?

I am one of the n4g users I referred to in my previous text you fool.
CuddlyREDRUM  +   880d ago
Wow, you got really bitchy.
Slysi  +   880d ago
It will come to next gen, do you think r are stupid, they know there make a lot more money with nextgen as well.there is no way they would pass on it, becoz they know people like me who buy on ps3 will also buy a ps4 version day one as well. Expect an announcement around 4/6 weeks after game as launched Tuesday
imXify  +   880d ago
I want to see a new kind of SAMP for PC but with GTAV. 1000 players on the same server was tons of fun !
CrossingEden  +   880d ago
I'll believe it when I see it.
IronChefWong  +   880d ago
Well I'll buy it now, and hopefully when they release it later it'll only cost $10-20 to upgrade.
likeaboss302  +   880d ago
If Rockstar has PS4/XB1 or PC versions in the works they should let fans know. Many of us have multiple platforms or migrating to next-gen. I know I'd wait for one of those versions. I think it's a disservice to the fan base just to pad sales numbers.
Arturo84  +   880d ago
I say they announce by summer and release once again in sept-oct so they current gen has atleast a lifespan of around 12 months releasing atleast 1 dlc in the time inbetween
Fergusonxplainsall  +   880d ago
Everyone and their grannies will be playing GTAV next week on current consoles..I do expect PC release and maybe next gen sometime next year.

I would really like a brand new GTA Vice City and go back to the 80s. That would look stunning on next gen. Stunning!
Hazmat13  +   880d ago
would love too see a nex gen version. 1080p 60 FPS, with updated textures. would look fine. but im still buying it on current gen console. haha

stop crying already get a ps3
and play the game

no pc version get used to it
RumbleFish  +   880d ago
No. I will wait for the PC version. I want the best version.

Trolling answered with trolling. :P
Convas  +   880d ago
This. I'll be waiting on the PC version myself.
VonBraunschweigg  +   880d ago
Allright, I will join you in waiting for the PC version but in the meantime I will enjoy the hell out of the PS3 version:)

And when you get your crappy port, I will play the superior PS4 version. Just to piss you off:)
RumbleFish  +   880d ago
@VonBraunschweigg: You really believe, the game will be ported to PC? The game (like every GTA) is made on PC. They dumb it down for consoles. They only release it first on consoles because they charge You more for the game and they buy themselves time to finalize the PC version.

I will play the exclusives on PS4 and the best version of multiplatform releases on PC.

If You can afford a good PC, buy one! You'll never regret! At least then You have the choice to play the best version of multiplatform titles.

If You can't afford it, enjoy Your version of the game but don't talk bs. The PS4 version will be really great, but depending of the power of the machine, the PC version will be superior.
RiPPn  +   880d ago
I don't blame them for keeping the next gen versions under wraps, they don't want it to cannibalize the current gen sales. I for one am not a person that needs games the second they are released and usually wait for a price drop, so I'll be waiting for GTAV and if a PS4 version gets announced in that time, I'll wait longer.
aLiEnViSiToR  +   880d ago
I'm 99% sure R* people are playing PC (ps4/xboxone) version right now and saying: we cant deny this masterpiece of ours to people, we just can't... well we will for the next 4 months... xD... $_$
cunnilumpkin  +   878d ago
of course the pc version exists already, don't be dense

the freaking game was MADE on pc and down ported to console like ALL GAMES

that's where all those "bullshots" come from that show the game not covered in jaggies, with nice textures and not looking like crap like the game does on ps3 and 360

the pc version was done before the ps3 and 360 versions

guess what, killzone shadowfall was made on pc too, and RYSE and every next gen game is all on pc, with WAY better graphics than the ps4 or xbox1 version will ever have

but sony and ms pay to have a couple games exclusive

that's all

think with your brain, that's what it is there for
