Here's a crazy idea: What if Rockstar and Take-Two decide to take the exclusive route with Grand Theft Auto V, positioning the guaranteed blockbuster as a launch title for one, and only one, of the next-generation consoles?
No. It wouldnt sell. Look at GTA Chinatown Wars on DS. The Best GTA since Sand Andreas and a classic hit with stellar gameplay. High scores and a crap load of media praise. Didn't sell cause the system was marketed to casual gamers and kids. Which is sad. I got it day one and it's still one of the best games, DS, GTA or otherwise. around.

Nice job brah :P
why the game sold a million copys, which was more than the psp port which sold a bout half a million Edit: i now see the article ment exclusive, i don't see it being exclusive though
yah but wiiu isnt marketed to kids and casuals as much as ds and wii
No point pondering over something that is out of the question. Third parties cannot afford to just on one console any more. Nintendo would not only have to subsidise the estimated loss made by selling to one console and possibly a little extra. It would make the system more desirable like most exclusives but would this happen. Of course not. With estimated sales being around 25 million Nintendo would have to subsidise a lot
this won't happen because T2 would lose too much profit.
I wouldn't buy it, playing a GTA game on a Nintendo console would feel weird, think I would stick to the PS3. It was like Tomb Raider when that went MP, couldn't play it on the 360, it just didn't feel right.
" playing a GTA game on a Nintendo console would feel weird" The crazy things you people make up. You act as if it's a cult... "Play it on console X or you will go to hell...Trollollollolloll" It's a machine which plays software. It doesn't affect ANYONE when playing it on the Wii-U including you. Get over yourself man.
So because I prefer playing it on a the series of consoles which the franchise was born on I need to get over myself. ....Shut the hell up and stop being a whinny b*tch
sidar is right, how could it be wrong on playing on a nintendo system? ''....Shut the hell up and stop being a whinny b*tch ''- really?!
"So because I prefer playing it on a the series of consoles which the franchise was born on I need to get over myself." Hope you don't like final fantasy or metal gear then lol Because they were born on Nintendo consoles You are proof that SOME people do not want nintendo to succeed. In fact I think SOME people would hate nintendo getting more 3rd party support because then they would have nothing to complain about.
so even if Wii U version was superior to X360/PS3 (better graphics or maybe new features, cars or other stuff) you still were playing on PS3? I actually don't care on which platform game is, all I care is gameplay ...and not 'this is weird, this is not' ..
I think theres more chance of hell freezing over. there hasn't been a single GTA game on a Nintendo console so it would make no sense making GTA one of the most violent games around all of a sudden exclusive to a company that loves there cute kiddy mascots. Rockstar couldn't even be bothered porting the GTA triolgy on the gamecube. i doubt they will start now.
but Wii had Bully ..and that was a good port and it sold about half a million.. (for a port it's not that bad).. so why not a new GTA on Wii U? :) every console deserves a chance.. exclusively or not.. (I actually don't care if it was exclusive or not) :)
The only way I could see GTA V becoming exclusive to the Wii U, if Nintendo offer up some major money to Take-Two.
Well they definitely have the money especially from what they made from Wii and DS but just cant see it happening. To me GTA is a Playstation franchise. depending on whether you have a 60GB PS3 you can play the entire GTA series on one console. Which I can do. I think its time to play Vice City on the PS3 =>
We would see a better shot of Nintendo locking up an exclusive time on the next Resident Evil installment more so than GTA V... Nintendo has to start creating some of these experiences themselves and making sure they market it well
wiiU and GTA is gonna be a great combination cant wait
LOL! Lets see will they release GTA V on consoles with a combined 110 million install base(PS3+360) or one with zero install base and no idea if it will succeed? Call me crazy but I think they'll release it on PS3/360.
its allready confirmed for ps3/360 the article is a "what if" scenario
or they'll probably release on all 3... durr plus the ps3 360 base combined is only 110 mil? LOL wii alone is 90
I think someone disagrees with your figures. It's strange when people disagree with facts. It's like stating, "Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States," and then someone says... "I disagree!"
well it would certainly get rid of the stigma that nintendo can't please the hardcore. Do I think this is likely? hell no but I could defiantly see this ported to wii u, in fact I could guarantee you that it will be on the wii u
If they want to be taken seriously by those that have forsaken Nintendo, then yes.
Maybe I could see Nintendo doing like a 6 month exclusive or something but that would be about it as far as a GTA game would be concerned though...
Whoever made this blog is a freakin' retard! GTA is a commodity. The consoles should all be lining up to get a piece. R* should have complete control over how it wants to handle distribution.
