The deal between PlayStation and Rockstar has the potential to win over millions of fans for Sony's next console.
Free for everyone was a slick move I have to admit, dont see me playing it though to be perfectly honest, have played it two gens on the bounce now on 4 different consoles, burnt out on gta5 at the mo.
I’ll play it again for free, not a lot, and I won’t do any micro transactions but I’ll definitely play some gta online for free.
Yeah I'm burnt out also I've gone back to replaying the older games and realised just how much more depth to story there was
Isn't only the online portion free?
Technically yes. Rockstar made a big song and dance that GTAO was given away for free for all GTA5 players. I still don't understand how people play GTAO though. There's way to much loading and waiting around to do anything. The best aspect of it are the races for me.
Shame its only free for a few months so in othet words if u dont buy a console within first few months gopd luck getting gta online for free, imagine paying for gta 5 3 times, last gen, this gen and another gen rockstar know how to milk a game of money
Wouldn't you if it's still a top 5/10 seller worldwide every year? It has sold over 130 million copies now and is still continuing to sell at an extraordinary rate. By the time GTA 6 is out, 5 will probably have sold 160/70/80mn copies which is mindboggling.
Thought GTA was R*'s Skyrim. Only buying it 5 times makes you a casual fan.
Depending on an older game as a killer app? This is PS5, not xsx.
You're like a parrot repeating the same troll on every thread. So sad.
Why so many dislikes? I don't want to play that fucking shit again.
How are you not bored of it yet?
Gaming is a luxury, no-one is forcing you to do a damn thing.
Are you sure? So when I get my PS5 I won't have to play it? What a relief.
Considering Sony has literally no multiplayer franchises of its own to depend on, this was a good move. Xbox is the better multiplayer console as always, PS is the better single player console as always. Bring on the blind disagreements from people uncomfortable with the truth.
100% agree. I’m an Xbox guy but I own all consoles and even I know that when it comes to single player games PS is the way to go but when it comes to online games MS wins hands down. This is why it’s better to be a multi console owner instead of a drone to one.
Same! This is why i have both! SPEAK THE TRUTH.
I don't think it's a killer app, but it's cool that it's free. Maybe it's a killer app for some people though. It seems to be quite popular. Not really my thing though.
No it’s not. As much as I liked GTAV, a 7 years old and 2 generations of video game old it’s not a killer app for PS5. I know some people is excited for this, but come on! If you want to play GTAV, just play it in your PS4. Even if it was for free I would not download it. I’m done with GTAV. If they want people to be excited, cut the laziness and give us GTA6
Well I share your mentality that it's not a killer app, you can't deny that it's a huge money maker for Rockstar. Even on my ps4 pro with an ssd, it still loads astronomically slow. Imagine if that's eliminated on ps5? That would be huge.
I agree that It's not a killer app for us, but we're in the "hardcore" crowd (hate using the Hardcore and Casual terminology, but for lack of a better word I'll use them), but for the "casual" gamer, it is a Killer App, I mean, it's the highest selling game of this generation and the last, right along Minecraft. I mean, last month, May 2020 it was the second best selling game in the country, that's after 7 years in the market.
130mn copies sold and counting suggest it still is a killer app, even 7 years later. Gta V is a juggernaut amongst ants. That's why Sony started their presentation with a 7 year old game, because they know there's no franchise bigger in entertainment than it. If R* released a picture with just VI written on it, the internet would crash.
So, if Microsoft announces the 200 mln selling Minecraft is free for XSX owners would that be a killer app? Are these important IPs that will come to nextgen consoles? Absolutely... Would I call them killerapss? no.
Eh old game, dont care. We all know dem casuals will still spend a ton on it though.
GTA5 online I'm afraid is here to stay it makes too much money and is too popular for it to be taken over by gta6
Really? C'mon. I fly the PlayStation flag as high as anyone cos it's awesome but there's no way GTA 5 is factoring In to my decision for which console I'm getting. I hate online gaming. If they weren't taking billions still from this ancient game they would have announced GTA 6 instead of GTA 5. You talk about lazy devs. Why make a new game when you can milk an old one.
It will be Grand Theft Auto 6 that will sell the most PlayStation 5's. :)
more a cash cow
Can you transfer your progress from Xbox One X to PS5?
The game is ancient, and the longer ago you first played it the older it seems, but there are loads of young people who haven't played it yet and will be all over it on PS5. Their insistence on carrying on with the same map makes me wonder if the plan is to keep it on as part of the online map of GTA6 and add to it.
That makes the most sense.
I'll play it again. But I really hope they improve the loading times. I play it on pc still even with it being installed on a nvme m.2 SSD it's painfully slow loading. Last night it took me and 3 friends 30 minutes so get in the same lobby as the loading the game up landing into a session. Then having to leave the session to join a friend's session to close to 30 minutes.
But it’ll also be available for XSX right?
It's also going to be the killer app for Playstation 6!
Well I'll just have to wait for the Series X edition I got the game free when I bought my XB1 I don't want to have to start from ground zero again. Unless Rockstar has away to transfer your character that would be the only way I would grab GTA V on PS5. Even if Rockstar had that option I own everything ran all the heists own all the businesses and I am burnt out on the game. I only turn the game on just to see what the free car is at the casino spin the wheel a few times try and win the car after that I turn the game off.
The only reason I stopped playing GTA online with friends is because of those dreadful loading times (loading into a game/map/etc). If there's virtually no loading time or shortened loading time then I'd play again
Only for Rock star.
I couldn’t care less at this point. This game will be moving to it’s 3rd console generation. I’m more then done with it at this point. I’m excited to get my hands on the PS5 day one. But this game is certainly not why!
