I've been waiting for GTA V PS4 since it released on las gen consoles. This and The Last of Us are the only games that I reckon are really worth remastering, and playing again on next gen consoles. But yeah, I do hope Rockstar sweeten the seal and add extra story DLC or something similar.

bacrec1772d ago

I really think they will.

AngelicIceDiamond772d ago (Edited 772d ago )

I don't think its worth ANOTHER 60$ bucks though. I'll probably pick it up when its cheaper.

@Saint

Lol no, its not. The story is terrific in all but the MP almost killed it.

I dunno if I wanna pay another 60 bucks for a next gen look of the game which looks fantastic but another whole 60$ fantastic?

Maybe a cool 30 bucks.

TheSaint772d ago

No, it's worth double that.

lemoncake772d ago

I played it so much that i also dont think its personally worth paying full price for again. If it had some extra content then i would probably get it sooner but as it stands i will wait for it to drop down a bit.

There is also just so much other stuff at the time of release to buy, which i haven't already played to death so its low on that list.

It's very simple: If you haven't played it before because you waited for a next-gen version, it will be worth 50-60 bucks for most people, and if you DID play it before, you can probably wait a bit till it comes down to 20-30 bucks.

Personally, I never played it before, so I'm likely to pick it up at launch, although it depends on what they'll announce, DLC-wise.

As I've always said before, 50-60 bucks is the maximum I'm willing to spend on a complete experience, so if this releases without content that they'll be selling separately, then I can wait a bit longer.

TheSaint772d ago

I've had hundreds of hours of enjoyment from GTA:V and GTA:O, it (IMO) is easily worth double that.

Hell I'd probably pay $60 each for V and O.

R* (like only two or three other devs) could charge double and probably get away with it. Well maybe not but you see my point.

Of course this is all just my opinion.

They have been responsible for some of the highest rated (critically and otherwise)and biggest selling games of the last two gens.

That's not opinion though, that's fact.

KAEM7772d ago

I agree. But I will wait and see. If it is just a graphic improvement then another 60 bucks will be too much for me. If they put in new content and add a lot of things/improvements to the original content I might bite.

objdadon772d ago

Trust me, you will be waiting a hell of a long time for gta 5 to go down to 30.00! Lol!

Yi-Long771d ago

@Objdadon: I doubt it. 6 months tops. It will be competing with a lot of 'true' next-gen games this winter, so after the initial rush of people buying it because they want to play it again or they've waited for this next-gen version, sales and excitement will most likely drop withing 2-3 months, so the price will adjust to that situation.

I'll be in Hong Kong this fall, so no doubt I'll be able to pick it up for around 400HK$ (or less), which is about 40 euro. And in Holland it will probably have first week sales, where it will sell for 45-50 euro.

Don't forget last gen Valve released 'The Orange Box', which were 5 amazing great games, and even that very quickly dropped in price.

Why it not because I already have this game and instead of Rockstar wasting there time and money on a game that millions of people already have (Expect PC but then release it). Rockstar should of put there time and resources into a new game or sequel. If they wanted to remake a game into HD remake GTAVC/SA into HD.

weekev15772d ago

Id still really love this on WiiU. Imagine what they could do with the gamepad. Im actually fairly certain it'd make more than it cost to port, they already said they had it running on WiiU. Come on Rockstar/Take 2, make it happen?!

randomass171772d ago

A Wii U version would be cool, but the unfortunate thing is the current install base is not a healthy market for third parties. There are exceptions of course, but third party games generally have not sold well on Wii U, to the point where ports just aren't worth it to the devs. It's extremely unfortunate but it's true.

bacrec1772d ago

Even just a simple Radio Station change with it would be cool.

voodoogts772d ago

Another way to shed out another $60 .

WeAreLegion772d ago

Nothing in this world will be able to stop me from handing Rockstar my wallet. I usually have such strong willpower, too.

TheSaint772d ago

Has there been a better dev in the last two generations?

WeAreLegion772d ago (Edited 772d ago )

I'm not sure. Naughty Dog is definitely up there, but they're a smaller studio. Rockstar has several teams and locations.

Audiggity771d ago

I agree. I have no willpower when it comes to Rockstar. My allegiance was fading slowly without the next-gen announcement and I had my doubts about transferring characters over from GTA:Online.

They came through on both.

Shame on me for questioning them.

tweet75772d ago

its not good in the fact taht its another previous gen remaster. Im just afraid this could back fire on companies if they keep doing this.

Spinal772d ago

No it won't backfire. Cause we the consumers want these games on our new consoles. I've been waitin for GTA 5 to come to PC but now I'll get it on my ps4 because I feel it's better suited to console.

Also I'll get it on PC some day on a steam deal when the community have made some awesome mods.

DARK WITNESS772d ago

It will backfire for other publishers/dev's if they are stupid enough to try this.

It can work for GTA and TLOU because those two games are arguably the two best games of the last generation and they were released late enough that their prob are a few people who have not played them yet.

I really don't see many other games getting away with it though.
