Lazlow from Rockstar Games "Confirms" Next Gen Ports of GTAV

By: Derrick Gott

If you were like many of gamers out there, you traded or sold your PS3 or Xbox360 to bankroll your entrance into the Next Gen console of your choice , thus causing you to miss out on the massive epic that is GTAV.

Well have no fear, because Lazlow from Rockstar Games spoke during an interview on Opie & Anthony’s SiriusXM program revealing in not so many words that they are indeed working on Next Gen ports of GTAV. He doesn’t come out and say it, but use your detective skills & read between the lines. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS4, Xbox One)

I hope this is legit! Nice scoop TaG

Next gen port sounded like a good idea couple of months ago.

But I don't care for it now. Terrific Sp but greedy MP scams is R* way of saying "thanks, now pay more money in our MP"

Seriously, docking the mission pay, slap in the face DLC and practically telling people to pay for those money sharks to get rich.

Nope, not taking my money R*.
IHassounah  +   203d ago
U do realize it's free DLC , also the next Heists DLC will eventually be free so please shut up and enjoy the game or enjoy other games and stop whining
GhostTurtle  +   203d ago
Totally agree with you dude. Online is fun but they just make it too f***ing obvious that they want you to buy the shark packs with all the nerfs. S*** is ridiculous. With that said, I'm a sucker, so I would prob end up buying it for the PS4 if it were to release.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   203d ago
@IHassounah Sounds like your enjoying those money hacks or killing others in the bad sport lobby.

Free DLC. Yeah, that's barely worth a download and got constantly delayed.

"next Heists DLC will eventually be free"

The heist was suppose to come with the MP as advertise. Even you forgot the original plans of heists.

Instead or telling me to shut up how bout you quit being a fanboy and respect my opinion like I respect yours.

I respect ur opinion but what I mean is that Rockstar made a good job with the game , maybe it isn't the best game out there but it did fill the space it needed to fill , I actually agree on things like the GTAO is for now boring so I'm waiting for heists to come , the SP doesn't have value after finishing the story , what I meant with shut up isn't literally shut up , what I meant is enjoy the game or try other games
vigilante_man  +   203d ago
Why? Why so much interest over a port?

A game made for next gen consoles using all that memory would be amazing but a port of the same current gen just with icing on is a good thing?

It's called lazy and greedy.

That's why it is great to hear Sony confirm that their studios new developments will be for PS4 only not PS3/PS4.

BLAKHOODe  +   203d ago
That's what I want to know, too. I don't have as much time to game as I'd like, so I didn't get too far into GTAV before I got a PS4 and Xbox One. My PS3 (that I moved into another room to make room for the new consoles) with it's digital copy of GTAV is now collecting dust.
GraveLord  +   203d ago
That's the only way would rebuy it honestly.
hollabox  +   203d ago
Finally, I just hope GTA 5 comes out before Watch Dogs, my PS4 is getting kinda dusty.

Dusty after a month of being out?
Somnipotent  +   203d ago

MRMagoo123  +   203d ago
im guessing you just dont have enough money to buy games with ? I have 7 games now and the only dust my ps4 gets is when i am too busy playing to clean. Just seems to me gaming is not your thing.
hollabox  +   203d ago
@thekhurg

Yep, switched back to gaming on my PC and Xbox 360 after about 3 weeks. So it's been awhile since my PS4 was fired up so I had a nice build up of dust on it when I installed my new TV stand.

Any who my living room stays clean but it's carpeted, with my sectional and a crap load of pillows making my black electronics become dust magnets. But hell that launch lineup was pretty weak for games I wanted to play. Only purchased Need for Speed and Madden 25 with a couple of free arcade titles. Please I don't need some idiot listing games they think I might like, I know the lineup, either I have it on my PC, or games just don't care about.

@
MRMagoo123, dude get real, all my bills fit on 1 pay check, I bring home $1325 every two weeks after taxes, unions fees, medical insurance, and retirement with a pay raise every 6 months. My fiancée brings home the same amount with the same bills.

Looking ahead the only games I'm interested in is GTA 5, Watch Dog, FF 15, The Division, and maybe infamous second son. Waiting on E3 for Uncharted, God of War, and The Last of Us announcements. If you want to talk about games I have over 60 installed on my 3 hard drives for my PC, an about 8 left for my X360, so I have plenty of money to buy the content I want.

"dude get real, all my bills fit on 1 pay check, I bring home $1325 every two weeks after taxes, unions fees, medical insurance, and retirement with a pay raise every 6 months. My fiancée brings home the same amount with the same bills." how in the hell do you live on $1325 a fortnight lol i make more than that every couple days making and repairing pcs.
hollabox  +   201d ago
@ MRMagoo123

Its simple, all of our bills come up to $2143 leaving us with over $3000 a month in spending cash out of $5200. Our paychecks would obviously be higher but we both chose to have $276 taken out every two weeks for retirement. Again this number will change since I get $1.26 pay increase every 6 months until I hit top pay in my union.

I did PC repairs for a contract company called Teksystem awhile ago. Only paid me $17 an hour with no benefits. The Majority of PC repair jobs in between Chicago and Milwaukee typically pays between $12-19 and hour. I also build and repair PCs but the flow of income is not steady for me to make that my full time job.

I don't know about your region but unless you're doing PC repairs as a business I doubt you make over $1300 every couple of days after taxes, insurance, and retirement. So with over $3000 in spending cash after all bills and taxes, retirement, and union fees I think buying a $60 game would be pretty easy. For me I don't see nothing I don't own already on various platforms to spend another $60 on my PS4 at this point in time.

Next year will probably change but for now its collecting dust while my PC takes care of my gaming needs. Overall I'm just not feeling this new generation yet, the Wii U "Meh" XB1 "Hmm" PS4 "Ok I got but now what?"

I need this in my life. Now damnit.

I need the share feature. I have a group of friends that play everyday. I know them in real life too, they live down the road. Good friends actually.

There is nothing better, or funnier than playing GTA with real people you know.

I had a friend take a selfie while I commited suicide in the backround, the picture is priceless, imagine a video :)

I need this in my life.

this isn't news i don't work for RS and i can tell you we will get GTA5 on next gen consoles in 2014 along with pc

it makes too much sense, they can charge $59.99 again. Online will not go through the same problems. And who knows maybe even a DLC pack too

GTA V got boring fast. Giant sandbox with nothing interesting to do. Same 'ol GTA.
ZombieKiller  +   203d ago
play with some friends and you will think differently.
frostypants  +   203d ago
@ZombieKiller, I have. The online is the worst thing about the game. If we want to play deathmatch, there are countless other games that do it better. Racing? Plenty of dedicated racing games do it better. Missions? The missions are awful. There's literally no compelling reason to play it other than drive around ganking people. Oh wow, buy property that serves no real purpose! Fun. Red Dead Redemption's online was far better (but even it got old fast).

Same here. I got the digital versions of GTAV and TLOU for these reasons.

I don't think there will be a next gen of TLOU but I was kinda hoping for a GTA:V one. - I don't think it matters whether or not your copy is a digital one.

I am hoping Rockstar have some incentives to get this again. Playing for 100% completion now... But becoming a chore....
Moncole  +   203d ago
Its very greedy that these companies make you pay to upgrade. It should be you put the disk in and the console will detect it and will download a digital version but you can only play with the disk in to access the digital version.

If you buy a games on PS3 than you should be able to play it for free on PS4 without paying. Just like how you buy a game on Steam you can play it on any OS it supports or on any computer as long as you have Steam installed with your account logged in.

I would upgrade for $10, but I didn't care enough for GTA 5 to double-dip at full price. It was a good game, but not that good.

By way of contrast, I would happily pay another $60 for a next-gen TLOU.

Wow, this got my hopes up. I'm tired of article titles that make it seem like something is officially confirmed but then it just ends up being something that a journalist think is a "hint".

The only time "confirmed" should be in the title is if it's officially coming from a source that actually confirms it.
SoldierX  +   203d ago
I mean this is like confirmed we sent it to Rock Star earlier but have not heard back yet.
ZombieKiller  +   203d ago
How is that a confirmation of anything?

You mean you confirmed that you sent them a letter?

-SoldierX from N4G "Confirms Questions asked" about Next Gen Ports of GTAV

Fixed.
derrickgott007  +   203d ago
I titled it "Confirmed" because if you listen to Lazlow you'll see he's basically saying it's coming without actually just coming right out and saying it. He did the same thing with GTAIV. Also we are waiting on confirmation from RockStar Games, but I'm betting on a "We neither confirm nor deny" letter or a stock "We haven't announced it yet" response

bottom line: he didn't confrim anything thus using confirmed in the title is misleading.
MatrixxGT  +   203d ago
Seeing people getting hyped up for no reason. Nothing is confirmed, title is misleading click bait...period.

For all we know they could be working on more iPad stuff. Listened to it twice and im still not seeing how this even hints towards a next gen port.

Short story: Move along folks, nothing to see here.
derrickgott007  +   203d ago
Keep in mind Anthony from Opie&Anthony has been in the GTA series since GTA Liberty City Stories. He sings the pisswasser commercial in GTA and plays a character in Trevor story. He and Lazlow are close, like hang out at each other houses close, so when he's on the show, things tend to get revealed.

DayZ Stand Alone - Open World Zombie Survival Simulator

Rust alpha - Open World Zombie Survival Minecraft type of game. Low end graphics but the gameplay and the amount of crafting of weapons and building homes/forts is AMAZING.

Arma III - Open world Military Simulator but it also has a bunch of mods for variable gameplay like Wasteland and the Metal Gear Solid mod

Survarium is in Alpha - FPS-RPG-MMO from the Dev team that Made STALKER

Just Cause 2 MP - 2000 on screen players ALL at once causing Chaos

STALKER SERIES - FPS/RPG and is my favorite series of all time.

Firefall - FPS-TPS-RPG-MMO

I bet it's an "Ultimate Edition" with all the DLC's included that they release on PS4/XboxOne. Notice that RockStar keeps calling a lot of GTA Online's features "Beta".... Beta for what? A Next Gen Version?? Hmmmm....

If it is i'm not gonna buy it. Already bought the current one, even though the community asked if there would be a next gen version.For them to release one would be dickish
derrickgott007  +   203d ago
I would most certainly re-purchase it on the PS4 or XboxOne. The amount of fun my crew and I have on GTA Online alone is worth it. Also, Rockstar has confirmed they are going to continue the storyline of the single player characters, so that would be an even more reason to purchase it on the new consoles.
KwietStorm  +   203d ago
The Share button on PS4 alone makes it worth it for me. This type of huge, detailed, streamlined open world game is also tailor made for the type of system architecture it has. As good as it runs on older hardware, it would just be immaculate if they barely even tried.
ZombieKiller  +   203d ago
@Kwiet:

This.

In it's finest form.

My crew flew me around in a tank dangling from a cargobob. We ran 5 stars for about 30 minutes. It was so much freaking fun and I would love to share it and keep it. Hell.....just to even watch it again would be awesome. I was hyterical the whole time. I wish I had that. I would buy the collector's edition again for this feature alone.

derrickgott007  +   203d ago
I've been digging around online and all hints point towards a March release. That's when a PC version is supposed to launch, so Next Gen consoles should be around that time. Also, Lazlow also stated on a previous Opie & Anthony that there would be a PC version 6-9 months AFTER the PS3/360 launch so that they could make some money before PC pirated it to shit.
BanginBiscuitz  +   203d ago
damn really will suck if it comes out in march. Titanfall comes and i will be addicted to that lol, AND Sunset overdrive is due in 2014, still waiting for Quantum Break and the watch dogs release. If it ports in march to next gen i may need to pass on it, really hoping Rockstar does an earlier port because march is fairly late. I appreciate the info though, thanks.

O and if Watchdogs is in the area of GTA port being released i am getting watchdogs all day. No way i will pass on it for GTA, i know GTA is an amazing game but Watchdogs just looks phenomenal and way to appealing to pass up for a port of a last gen game.

why would anyone buy a port that is on a next gen console that barely takes advantage of the console? I ain't gonna buy a ps4 so i can play gta 5.2. I want to be wowed by next gen consoles, not feel like im playing the same game. It isn't built from the ground up, so why bother. If you don't own a xbox 360 or ps3, than that is a different story. If you own those consoles , buy gta5 for those consoles.
yezz  +   203d ago
Well because the share feature, better controller, cross game chat and maybe shorter loading times makes it better for playstation users..

"I ain't gonna buy a ps4 so i can play gta 5.2."

Well nobody is buying a console for that reason? I already have a ps4 for other reasons and if a port is released that I can upgrade for 10€ then I'll probably buy it. How is that bad..

This headline is a complete lie. There isn't a confirmation anywhere in this video. That doesn't mean it won't happen, but this is a poor way to generate hits.
BanginBiscuitz  +   203d ago
I just honestly have no fricking clue why Rockstar doesnt come out and say "we are making a port for these consoles ... ... ... on ... ... ... or not even a date, just verify if its coming. At this point, since its already been released and IT SOLD AMAZINGLY, announcing this info cannot cause any harm to them. I just dont understand, if it is being ported they need to do it asap the longer they wait and further into 2014 the less sales they will get. 2014 has some great multiplats as well as exclusives for X1 coming (i am only speaking for X1 because i really dont know what 2014 is bringing for PS4). Come on Rockstar just let us know already, this is getting ridiculous.
