Amazon has opened the pre-order pages for Grand Theft Auto V, possibly revealing which platforms the upcoming high-anticipated sequel will be appearing on.
Wii-U PS3 Xbox 360
Would be awesome if we got a Vita version. The PSP GTAs were good.
The WiiU isn't on the list, and frankly nobody cares about the WiiU. I sure hope this isn't going to be another Red Dead Redemption for PC gamers. I enjoyed playing GTA3 and 4 more on my PC than I did on my PS3.
Hopefully the game comes on 4 disk for the 360 sorta like L.A. Noire so it wont be gimped and have all the good stuff ripped out Again.... . Cant Wait For San Andreas 2. Woooo Hoo!!!!
It would be really sad if they release another GTA on this 6 to 7 years old hardware. Hopefully it will be released on pc with an overhauled engine.
*GTAV for PSV* :D
If Wii-U is true I guess the game will be releasing mid-late 2012 since Wii-U is supposed to launch next summer.
Hmm,add PC to that list of platforms.
Yeah we hope.
I hope it does, but by past games it will release a couple months after the console versions.
With Rockstar PC 'gamers' get a console port a few months/years later. If you're lucky. Rockstar know consoles are more important.
Why waste time on a failing market?
The pc version will be the best because of mods. Most other developers are releasing on pc simultaneously so GTA should be no different.
@sxbrady The PC is hardly a failing market. Steam alone garnered well over a billion dollars in revenue this past year, a failing market? I think not. Yea, it suffers from piracy, but so does Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo.
[email protected] disagrees for it coming to PC. awwwwww poor people......pat on the head for effort though.
I know I'm not going to waste my time playing a console version at 15fps like with GTAIV, the game was alot more disappointing to me just because it ran so poorly... I'd consider a Wii U version though, if I get one of those and its better than my budget PC. Which is possible, probably still cheaper to upgrade components.
Replace Wii U with Pc
I've got no interest in another GTA before the PS4 and 720 come out.
Why would they spend extra development time making it for the Wii U....I mean even if it was it's not going to have the best graphics as everyone keeps saying because Rockstar knows it will still sell well on all platforms so whats the point wasting more time making one version better. They have to make it with the 360 in mind....call me a fanboy but it's true...Rockstar will be developing this first on the 360 because it's the console with the most limitations, which means at the end of the day all that true potential it has if it was released for the PS3/Wii U won't happen. Want to know why GTA4 felt smaller in map size compared to SA...because they didn't want to put their open world game on two discs. I really want to see an open world game for the PS3/Wii U that will take advantage of the things it has to offer.
You have no idea what you're talking about. GTA IV's map size has nothing to do with the limitations of any console.
GTA4 map was smaller because the game was based on 4 NYC boroughs/little bit of Jersey while SA was based on LA,San Francisco and Vegas....
@ blackmask So SA's which was on xbox1 and ps2 map was bigger? And that came on one disk...and GTA 4 was smaller due to the 360's limitations... seriously consider what you just said as crazy.
Do you guys really think Rockstar couldn't make a bigger city using all of a 50 GB Blu Ray?
Of course they can make everything bigger but it will take another 2 years to complete and double the cost. That is why you will see expansion like Ballad of Gay Tony released within 1-2 years after the game has been released.
Have you not played Just Cause 2?
Skyrim is 6GB and will likely have a bigger world than GTAIV world size doesn't directly = size on disc
They could do a lazy port to Wii U assuming it has quite a lot more performance than current consoles, and just turn up the resolution and filters. However i think that if the game ended up on Wii U rockstar would try and do the hardware justice. Personally i doubt it will make it to wii U unless nintendo have specifically chased rockstar down and made a deal for it. My reasoning being more that Wii u's userbase will still only be very small and limited compared to PS3 and 360. Few would bother with it for Wii U compared to those machines, so it wouldn't be worth the extra cost to develop it for Nintendo's new machine. Still Rockstar know what they are doing. wait and see.
Amazon knows shit. Wait few days
Very revealing... lol
PC version delayed again and chances are it might still be unoptimised.
And then they'll patch it like IV, and I'll be playing it for months and months. What's your point?
hmmm how about give up agent as an "exclusive" and take this instead Sony. a GTA taking full advantage with only the PS3 limitations would be a huge game in terms of size and things to do.
Why would Rockstar do that when GTA4 sold more for another console. Speaking of limitation, wasn't it the PS3 version running on sub standard HD, as i recalled.
PS3 exclusives...nuff said.
I love how people think the 360 is holding GTA back. The heavy amounts of stupidity here is funny
srsly are people on here that dumb and @aarix I totally agree with you
"a GTA taking full advantage with only the PS3 limitations would be a huge game in terms of size and things to do." Really ? Is infamous bigger than Skyrim, Assassin's Creed, Red dead redemption, or just cause 2 though ? Are there more things to do ? Nope...and you know why ? because noone wants to spend 3 times as much to create a game that would sell half as much as it would if it were multiplatform, and that almost nobody would finish anyway. It just wouldn't make sense to make these games bigger.
Wii u version will be awesome. map on controller, radar could flash controller or vibrate it, quick quest log and inventory access, keeping the view of the action and city relatively free of UI junk. if they keep the whole cell phone thing dialing numbers could be easier and more natural feeling, like having an iphone or something
Annnnndddd........of course it's not on PC at launch.....
I'll get the PC version even if it means waiting a few months. As long as it's a well polished console port, big f***ing deal.
What if it didnt come on the pc version???
then i wont buy it as i dont own a console
examiner = dont click :)
i dont think nintendo will keep all the content uncensored like they did with other games.
Yea I mean after the censored House of the Dead: Overkill, Madworld, No More Heroes and several other M rated Wii games... Oh wait it's not 1992 anymore and Nintendo are no different than Sony or MS when it comes to licensing M rated games...
What a scoop
God,wiiu is gonna fail so badly...
What?! Bu-bubuh my fortune cookie said the opposite!
I really think the Wii U is going to be the fall of Nintendo. I mean, at most it will only be a little more powerful than a PS3 and within a year, you will see new hardware from both Sony and Microsoft. I was hoping since Nintendo made so much money this generation with the success of the Wii, they can at least make a true Next Gen console so it can take Mario and Zelda to the next level but a Tablet/console hybrid, really?
within a year? and nintendo is way more succesfull than sony or microsoft in the video games field. They will not fail with sales
i hope this comes out for....meh, just gimmie some UC3 next week!
this has got to be among the most stupid or pointless articles out there
Agreed. Common sense can answer this question.
Yeah, but where is he? xP
Probably banned from N4G. If not he stopped approving and reporting submissions. That much is for sure :D
well it could come out for the wii u maybe being a special release with the wii u
lol @ trusting amazon it will definately be xbox and ps3 exclusive, but i hope they also release it for pc. rockstar would be cruel to not release it for pc.
yes thumb me down you greedy console fanboys.
They seriously lost support for pc
I seriously wish people would stop bagging on the WiiU. If it's not your bag then fine. But honestly, it will do just fine. Especially if it's priced at the right point and has the software to back it up. This is the Wii all over again...everyone said how bad it would fail..the end of nintendo..blah blah blah... How well did the Wii end up doing again? Hell nintendo is even making it compatible with old controllers. The Wii U probably won't do as well as the original Wii but I doubt it will put ninty in the grave either. These console wars are so frigging petty it's ridiculous. Play on what you own and have fun and stop giving a fuck who's version has 3 more rows of pixels. Seriously...
Fanboys are going to exist. Gotta learn to deal with them... but forcing an opinion on them hasn't worked once in any fanboy war since Sega vs Nintendo, so I don't see why you'd think it would work for you.
Were you actually happy with the Wii? It had some great games, namely first party titles. But it was weak as a system. I don't care if it sold more than PS3 and 360, both those systems had far superior game titles, and the online components on both were excellent.
How about Rockstar deals with the fact that they put an absolute HORRIBLE game on top of one of the greatest environments and worlds ever created first and then Ill be excited for GTA5.
