Rockstar wants to 'blow consumers away' with PS4 & Xbox One GTA 5

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of Grand Theft Auto 5 will exceed fan expectations, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick believes, who says that "nothing but the very best will satisfy Rockstar". (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I missed out on two of the biggest games last gen. I'm glad I get to play this now that I have more time on my hands. I got to experience The Last of Us for the first time on PS4, next GTA5.

Ah you lucky sod. You're in for a treat.

The new version of GTA5 should be epic. It always felt like a next-gen version of the game was needed. Now with more NPC's and traffic plus a visual upgrade on an already astounding looking game, GTA 5's next-gen version should be amazing. Plus, this is Rockstar we're talking about.

I do hope they scrap that crappy character creator for multiplayer though. And still no heists....

"One way to look at it is that 34m copies have been sold, but there's 7bn people on Earth. So we have over 6.9bn people left to address," he added"

Yeah but not all of those 6.9bn people have homes, let alone running water or electricity or next-gen games consoles to play the game on.

yeah that's a very clumsy statment from that guy.

"How can you buy a next-gen console and not want to play GTA on it?"
simple! i don't like this series it bores me so fast.
RDR was the first and last R* game i ever finished!
NewMonday  +   546d ago
I stayed away from GTA5 last gen because I was certain of a new generation release, it will not be a remake for me
KwietStorm  +   546d ago
You didn't really take that last bit seriously..
Yi-Long  +   546d ago
Same as New Monday: I 'knew' a next-gen version would eventually come out, so I decided to wait, and I'm sooooo happy I did :) Can't wait to play it.

And I did the same with The Last of Us, for the same reason. Haven't played that yet though, because I want the USA version first, so I'll buy it when I'm in Hong Kong.

I agree with you 100%. RDR>GTA all day. Finished everything to do in RDR and DLC.

I buy every GTA that comes out but I never finish them. I get bored with them usually around mid game. The only GTAs I was able to finish was 3 and VC.
Dee_91  +   546d ago
I'm want an expansion to paletto bay, they could make that area much bigger, but I doubt that would happen. I expect casinos, single player story dlc and heist for online.Also read about opening the clubs.

Oh please. Come down from your high horse Ghandi.
Soc5  +   545d ago
I agree with you on everything except more traffic, rockstar and people keep mentioning how the new versions will have more traffic. Why is that a good thing exactly? lol Half the time when I'm driving around the city I'm complaining about the damn cars in my way. Obviously you need some cars but I don't think more is necessary we don't want to recreate everything we experience in life, like traffic jams :)
Matt666  +   546d ago
I know this will probably never happen but I still hoping for a GTA3/VC/SA HD remaster, just think how good them three games would look now on the PS4/Xbox One/PC.
spacedelete  +   545d ago
yeah i'd rather play GTA 3 again remastered than GTA V but will get GTA V anyway as next gen has been very underwelming. i'm not a hating on next gen its just the games are just mainstream rubbish so i have to wait until E3 next year for some games i'm interested in. thats almost two years of owning a next gen without a single fantastic game. i still don't regret the Ps4 as you really can't go back to last gen once you upgrade.
frostypants  +   546d ago
Be prepared to be impressed with vast environments, then realize that the gameplay is no better than GTA3 on the PS2.
user5669510  +   546d ago
Pc mods can change game play sucks for others tho. That's why it good to wait for the superior version.
Jeff257  +   546d ago
I know I will be picking this one up again. I really enjoyed it on PS3 but most of my clan mates stopped playing online once COD Ghosts came out. I am hoping that some will find the time to get this on PS4 and we can start playing it online some more when we aren't playing Destiny.
wls1012  +   546d ago
I'm buying it again
JeffGUNZ  +   546d ago
I'm still on the fence. They have to add a lot more to it for me to warrant the purchase. I maxed my character out, best property, decked out vehicles, and completed all the missions. I just hope it's more then a new coat of paint/visuals. I really think they held off on heists to make it a selling point to get the next gen. version.
spacedelete  +   545d ago
i'm not. even with a simple port GTA V is already the best next gen game. with GTA games people play them for months if not years. people will still be playing GTA V even until a new GTA game gets announced.
bloop  +   546d ago
I'm getting again too. Only thing I ever wanted more from any of the GTA games was to have more life on the streets. I know there are still a lot of npc's on PS3/360 but just from what we've seen so far on current gen it looks like the streets are going to be absolutely thronged!!! Can't wait to jump in a car and take to the pavement :P Sadistic, I know.
Zichu  +   546d ago
I'm 50/50 on this, I did enjoy GTA V a hell of a lot, but it's hard sometimes to pick up a copy of a game that you have already played.

Again, I might get it when it drops in price, same with a few other ports or remasters.
JeffGUNZ  +   546d ago
Exactly man. I feel the same way. I'd drive around and see the improved graphics and what not, but then I feel like I'd be bored. Game is fantastic, but I maxed everything out in MP and beat the game. With Destiny, Assassins Creed, the Evil Within, NHL 15, CODAW (which I am surprised looks really good), and the Crew, I just don't know where this will fall since I already played the heck out of it.
thricetold  +   546d ago
Yep, love the game but no way am I paying full price for it. Its clear they are holding back heists to use as a selling point, again, even though a lot of gamers will double dip just for a pixel upgrade they know that's not going to be enough for the rest of us.

Though its a shame whats going to happen online to those who chose to not play it before now, they will be so under leveled its going to be a nightmare for new online players because everyone else is just transferring their rank and money over from last gen.

So make it 60fps. It will make a huge difference to the driving and shooting mechanics.

teo72  +   546d ago
Earth calling: 195 TFlop PC's does not exist. 2 to 3 times better will be more realistic. Not that that would matter much to us console users, as most tvs can't handle more than 1080p anyway.

Then the important question: will I buy it again? ... I have no idea. I played through the entire single player on ps3... 50% chance I recon. Higher if I get a good deal and/or new exclusive content is included.

Most PC:s can't handle 4K, look at the numbers Steam provide.
It's a staggering low number of people who enjoys 4K-gaming.

In a couple of years, maybe it will be the majority, maybe sooner. But today, no.

Stop acting like all of ya'll pushing pixels like Tony Montana pushed blow.
matt139  +   546d ago
Maybe the next generation or the generation after of GPUS will handle 4k games at around 60fps. A 780ti cant even handle metro 4k at 30fps.
Grap  +   546d ago
Most of us play at 1440p with 120fps so there's 60 fps to sacrifice.

Hk85karlsson  +   546d ago
Yeah you do. I dream often as well. And it's good.
thehobbyist  +   545d ago
To be fair. Even from a PC standpoint. I don't see the point of going above 1440p.

The biggest advantage with 4K gaming is that the image is so big that Anti-Alias becomes useless. But rendering in 4K takes up more processing power than good AA anyways. So I don't see the point really. It also doesn't help that there isn't a single game designed around/for 4K.
pornflakes  +   546d ago
Would pick up GTA5 since i didnt play it to the end on my PS3.

Of course only if the game would have 60 FPS.
BiggerBoss  +   546d ago
You would only play GTA V if it was 60 fps?? Wow I don't even know how to reply to that.

OT: it better have heists Rockstar
Palitera  +   546d ago
You'll only know after the actual release, since they became blatant liars last years. Heists were advertised for the last gen release...

Apparently 60fps is the new standard for Sony fanboys.. if they opened there minds a little they would know pc has been running games at 1080p 60fps for years already lol.. #CluelessGamer
Scark92  +   546d ago
I hope people who bought it already get a certain discount but I prob will get it eventually regardless..
Software_Lover  +   546d ago
Probably not. I bought GTA IV for 360 and ps3. When the PC version came out (didn't have steam at the time), I still had to pay full price. I then bought the entire collection on steam a year later for 10.00.
ps4fanboy  +   546d ago
So glad I waited , I've not even watched much gameplay videos.
Psychotica  +   546d ago
I am trading my PS3 version in for the PC version so I can stream it with Steams In-Home Streaming to my laptop and play anywhere in my home. Great game, I have had tons of fun with it and I don't even play GTA Online.
GearSkiN  +   546d ago
Hope they offer discounts for previous owner.
Software_Lover  +   546d ago
How about you f'n optimize the PC version for once. Maybe we can get a stable 30fps from you guys this time.
IrishSt0ner  +   546d ago
I'll buy again. Completed the game once and got to level 100 online, I stopped playing knowing it would be re-released so It'll still feel fresh... can not wait!
RedDevils  +   546d ago
what a waste of money imo
jairusmonillas  +   546d ago

Grave  +   546d ago
Stopped playing on PS3 and started praying it would come to Steam. So happy, plus still an Autumn release? I really hope I'm playing this in a few short months.
MCTJim  +   546d ago
Considering I have this on the 360, I am going to pass on the current Gen systems.
MRMagoo123  +   546d ago
I have it on ps3 but I also have the ps4 paid for so I can pick it up on release day, I myself will play the ps3 version for a few hours the day before then jump on the ps4 version in the hope that the difference will be more extreme to me.
hiawa23  +   546d ago
Many of us loved what they did on last gen consoles and can't wait for the re releases
lfc_4eva  +   546d ago
Pleased about this. I started playing it on x360 and I thought it looked total ass. The frame rate was terrible, even using the usb install fix. So I played barely 30 minutes and haven't touched it since. Looking forward to getting it to play at good frame rate aswell as look the complete nuts.
RedDevils  +   546d ago
sound like you play the game just to stared at the tv to count those frame rate
MRMagoo123  +   546d ago
just ignore reddevils, the differences that have been shown are huge, Its gonna be a treat if you have played it to death or not, its gotta be one of the top 3 gtas ever made imo along with san andreas and vice city. I am getting mine day 1 and I am still keeping my ps3 version for comparisons and memories. I can bet you are gonna love it.
lfc_4eva  +   546d ago
No worries I'm not paying him any attention. I really tried to enjoy it but the choppy frame rate put me right off. I played gta4 on x360 to death and was hoping for more of the same. I'm also looking forward to a much better version.

"One way to look at it is that 34m copies have been sold, but there's 7bn people on Earth. So.....
So we have over 6.9bn people left to address,"

That was a bit of an arrogant comment! Does he know how many of those 6.9 billion people are poor and oppressed?

Talk about being out of touch with reality!

They need to focus on the PC release cause console buyers likely already own it or played it enough. It's the pc gamers that have been holding out and will make the bulk of sales this go round. Focus on us for a change.
Mr Tretton  +   546d ago
They're just mentioning the consoles because it's the popular thing to do. GTA5 will have mods on PC. Ultimate version.
TheOnlyMastrx  +   546d ago
Own it for both PS3 and Xbox 360, love it, played through twice on each console and is about the only game I play online anymore (when I have internet).

Don't have PS4 or Xbox One yet but when I get them this will be one of the first games I pick up for both consoles, probably wait for sale price considering I paid for it twice already, but my next gen gaming won't start for a while anyways.
