Not only is GTA V the game with the biggest budget of all-time, Rockstar now says that more than 1,000 employees worked on the game.
Should've brought the game to next gen I meant from the beginning waited for everyone to buy next gen then down the line release it
160 million userbase of 360/PS3 vs 0 userbase of XB1/PS4? It's an easy choice to make business-wise. Inevitably the next-gen versions couldn't sell more than 500k-1 million each anyway in the first year or so since PS4/XB1's user bases will be so small. I think the biggest take away from this is that if they had 1000 people working on it and over $250 million spent on it but still couldn't get GTA Online to work at launch then they may not managed PS4/XB1 versions much better.
The money they made with the PS3 and 360 launch seemed to point to releasing now to be smarter business move. For all we know we might get some kind of upgrade package like BF4. I would love to see it and would personally buy GTAV on next gen even if I had to purchase it full retail again. The additions and superior graphics would be worth it. I'm sure many PC gamers purchased it on their system of choice and wouldn't bat an eyelash to buy it again when it gets released down the road on PC.
1000 people still cant figure out how to fix my issue of keeping my character after a session
I'm a bit disappointed with GTA5. It has a tremendous amount of tedious missions that just aren't fun. It also feels very unbalanced, some missions fail very easily for no reason and other are just driving a piece of equipment from one end of the city to the other with no challenge at all. GTA4 had way more shootout type missions, GTA5 is full of filler missions to make the game seem long when it's actually pretty short on action. The online isn't working, for me at least as of today. I think Red Dead Redemption was much more impressive. Not saying GTA5 sucks, I'd give it an 8.5(I'm about three quarters of the way through), it's no where near a flawless game that I'd give a 10. I would have awarded a 10 to Red Dead before this game. I know people who sold GTA5 back already because they were so disappointed. I wouldn't go that far, I don't see myself playing through the SP a second time though. I can't see myself watching all those cutscenes again and driving all around the world doing fetch quests.
