InEnt writes: We know sacrifices are made at the end of a consoles generation, and some games release right before next-gen hardware that is known as the transition period, but would Rockstar really want this with Grand Theft Auto 5?
While I really want to play GTA 5 asap it would be silly to not launch at least a version on next-gen if they launch next year.
I remember GTA San Andreas came out 1 year before Xbox 360. I'm pretty sure Rockstar is fine with this release. You just want to have the next GTA to look amaze ballz. I would love that too but these games take years to make.
aaah!............I was just typing that. It was released June 2005 for the PC This article is classic N4G void filler
LOL GTA San Andreas sold more then 20 million on the PS2 alone. Nobody gave a flying ish about 360 releasing the year after San Andreas.
Agreed Carlito Brigante I think, Like last gen , GTA5 will be launched on PS3 & Wii U on first, Then will be released on xbox720 with updated graphics. Xbox360 not sure because it's going to end.
Woah! the disagrees are astonishing. There's already been talk about a "next-gen" version that may make it's way onto the Wii U. (releasing this year) It would only make sense that GTA V would not only have to be availible on the Xbox720 and PS4, but it would also make sense for those versions to have some sort of advantage, compared to a previous-generation copy.
It's going to sell whatever gen they release it on.. But i agree if the next gen launches next year.. which I doubt i think they could be announced 2014 release.
Dude how about you stop with those weird predictions.. The Wii-U is going to be released this year and seeing how it's stronger than both the PS3 and the Xbox, and the Xbox has little to no exclusives this year, Microsoft has to announce the 720 and release it by the end of THIS year. Sony will probably follow a year later since they have the Vita to focus on now.. The consoles will NOT be released in 2014 though no matter what happens.. The new Xbox is going to be announced at E3 2012 remember my words
Yet earlier today there were articles up quoting Microsoft revealing games at E3 and Gamescom....
You're gonna tell him about predictions and then post THAT comment? Microsoft Is going to announce the next box and release it this year when its already March?
@KwietStorm, yes.. They'll announce it in E3 just like they did with the Xbox360 and then released it in Novemeber.. Look it up @DG90, stop being a smartass, you know I was only talking about the 2014 consoles launch
Erm.. ok sorry i didn't realise predicting that a GTA game will sell no matter what was such a weird prediction.. I guess you told me.
Do you work for microsoft or sony? No. stop trying to pass your opinion off as a fact.
I'm with ya. Durango (aka Xbox720) will be unvealed at E3 2012, without a doubt. And will release between Nov.2012-Nov2013.
Wii U edition (purchase).
Which will be the gimped version. Do you really think Nintendo will allow hookers, strippers and cop killing on a Nintendo console? Nintendo has made a huge effort to build a family friendly image, I don't see them throwing that away.
BMX XXX for GameCube had full topless nudity.
How about madworld and no more heroes which is ten times more violent than gta.
but Ninja Gaiden III will be on Wii U and that is probably in the top 10 most graphic games this generation. might as well throw GTA on there too
I guess you never played the new House of the Dead for the Wii which if I'm not mistaken had the most F bombs said than any other game made. Not to mention *spoiler alert* ============= ============= The antagonist crawling into his own monster mother's vagina. Yea the game is that f*ck*d up. You need to invest some more time in your big N research.
They already did, look up "GTA Chinatown Wars" for DS.
Hello chap. Wii`s got a lot of "adult" games. You can see it on the cover, an age rating. Whoever agreed with you must be pissed since Nintendo is pissing on ms and sony this generation.
I dont rly care.. Becuse i wont get next gen consoles until some good games that i want comes out for them.
What about some amazing launch titles?
yeah ... im sold if theres some uncharted 4 or something sweet at launch
I dont want GTA V to be a next-gen title... I want it this year
Me too, I'm hoping it will be like San Andreas all over again.
I'm undecided on what I want it to be released on, I want it to be the best it possibly can be but I want it as soon as possible. I'd probably think that it would be the last great console on the 360
i bet they are working on 2 gta games , one for current gen and the other have been working on it for a year or 2 years until the next gen consoles release :) dreaming :P
I wouldn't be surprised if they release on current gen consoles even if next gen is releasing soon. The install base of current gen is too large to not take advantage of.
Grand Theft Auto V is the only game that would make me buy a brand new console just to play it. But it's already clear from the trailer that the game will be on current gen consoles. The game's graphics look great, but not next-gen great. And I doubt they would port it to next gen consoles and have an inferior-looking product. When a GTA title appears on the 720/PS4, it will be built from the ground up for those consoles. As for more info on GTA V, Rockstar has stated they will begin talking a whole lot about the game in a few months' time. Most likely soon after Max Payne 3's launch. I doubt there will be much about GTA V at E3 though. Rockstar reveals things on their own schedule - they don't need an event.
beat me to the punch, but yeah the only game rockstar announced at a E3 was agent but yeah bubbles for you
new xbox is out this year, less than 8 months you'll see at e3 the 360 is on its seventh year man, come november it moves into year 8 100% chance of a new xbox this november, halo 4 on 360 AND Nextbox ftw!
Who EVER said we are at the end of a generation? Nobody.
I don't see a new xbox being released till next year. Announced this year shore, but being released this year I highly doubt it. 360 is selling well at the moment so where is the sense in releasing it this year?
I would prefer to have GTA V as a launch game for next gen systems if the 720 is coming out next year. Of course, GTA would make more money on current gen systems that have a much larger install base.
Either way I am getting the Wii U version. PS3 and 360 days have come and gone.
Just make the PC the primary platform then they can downgrade it for the current consoles and it will be fine for the next gen consoles whenever they come out..
THIS IS GOING TO BE THE most BEAUTIFUL GTA GAME EVER MADE
