GTA5: Should Rockstar wait for the next gen?

Although Rockstar hasn't actually said that Grand Theft Auto 5 is coming out on the current crop of consoles it's pretty safe to assume it's bound for the PS3, 360 and PC. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

They should so the naming of the game would actually make sense.

IV was a sign of a next gen GTA. V should be as well. Anything else is GTA:Insert location here.

No... unless you want to play this game in two or three years

I'm sick of people confused to why it's called "GTA V" and not GTA(Insert Location). Fans assumed Rockstar followed this number pattern with each gen but it was never confirmed. They can call it whatever they want.

One of the most obvious reasons is it would be too easily confused with GTA San Andreas if they called it GTA Los Santos, and it wouldn't sound new. GTA V sounds new and that's what R* probably wanted.

If they wait they can add a lot more content and not be held back by this generations consoles.

I agree.
GTA IV had a ton of limitations due to current-gen hardware. Unless the systems get more RAM and GPU power all those same problems from GTA IV will stay in GTA V.

I'd rather they do the game right and unleash GTA V so that they will have no creative limitations.

I would agree but we have no idea when the next gen console will be coming out, and they already had been working on this game for a very long time and coming out later this year.

I imagine they'd really have to redo alot of the work on this game to get it to be able to utilize the new systems.

No, because the "PS4" is said to not be coming in a hurry, and I can't wait that long for my taste of GTA.
yezz  +   897d ago
maybe it would be wiser but I WANT a NEW GTA ALREADY. there has been only one gta this generation :'(. they shouldnt make them as fast as cods but 4 years and we still dont know how long we have to wait for the next one -__-

The PC version should be far superior to GTA IV if they do it right. I hope it doesn't suffer because of the current consoles.
GraveLord  +   897d ago
Amazon has been taking pre-orders for a while now for PS3/360. Safe to say its current-gen game.

no need to Wait PC is next GEN

I'm pretty sure R* likes to make money. R* has a 120m+ install base with these 2 consoles to sell to + PC. To sell it on the next gen hardware they would have less then a 20m install base.

Anyway if you want GTAV to look like a next gen game, then buy it for the PC. Which is what ill be doing. Even without the iCEnhancer mod GTA4 PC makes the consoles look like a PS2 game.

if thats what you think of photorealism sub for graphics
Braid  +   897d ago
While I agree that they should have waited for the next gen to provide a better GTA experience, there's literally no way that the game is going to be released for the new consoles as the graphics in the reveal trailer looked pretty regular. I'm pretty sure that the next generation consoles will be able to do much better than that in terms of graphics.

I woulden't mind. If they want to wait, I'll wait too.
AKS  +   897d ago
No, they shouldn't wait. But they should take a bit of time to code it properly for the PC this time around. The optimization of the PC version was awful. If I can run BF3 on the highest settings minus HBAO, I shouldn't be struggling with stuttering on the PC version of GTA IV.
BLow  +   896d ago
Here's a thought. GTAVI for next gen. Problem solved. The next gen Xbox or Playstation hasn't even been announced yet. Why would they release one of the biggest games on launch of a system with no indication of the installed bases. Remember this is a business. 120 million+ and PC versus ?#'s of next gen at launch. You do the math.

I'll take GTA again this generation thank you. A revisit to San Andreas will be nice before we jump to the next ship.

GamingTruth  +   896d ago
its funny all these pc nerds in here talking tech crap and this is a playstation franchise to start with, lol this game deserves to be on ps3 if nothing else and it will look next gen anyway if it was exclusive to ps3
