Three iconic cities, three epic stories, one definitive collection.
Personally very skeptical at the lack of ANYTHING shown for this trilogy. I won't be buying it if there are minimal changes and will take it as another blow from a company that still leads, but has lost the audience as a priority.
Edit I've now seen the trailer. While the HD upgrade is nice, it's just poor all in all
It's definitely not a remake, but those car/puddle reflections sold me. The "mix of old and new graphics" rumor turned out to be true. Yes, we WOULD have preferred a Mafia 1 quality remake, but I prefer more dev time be focused on GTA 6 and possibly GTAV story DLC.
I didn't have my hopes up for anything major, the disappointment comes from the fact that it feels like Rockstar sold their soul for profit. I need to let go of nostalgia because growing up R* where the ones. New IPs, amazing sequals and above all, consistency in their releases. Of course, it's their studio and their games. I just won't take part in cow milking.
I hope they do some of limited edition for this if it’s physical.
Why? So you can stick in under your bed for 10 years?
I spent $250 on the LRG Collector's Edition of Clannad for Switch. Physical forever, bruh!
The PC version will be best if the SA-MP modders pick this up to add online multiplayer. Was amazingly fun back in 2005 with tons of players. Tho today I'm not sure it would attract as many people. Might pick it up on console if cheap enough. Full remakes would've been more welcome tho.
Or maybe I'll display it...like all the others I have
No, so it will gain some kinda value later on and nice to actually have to put on the shelf. Have you seen what San Andreas for PS2 goes for these days? Hahaha
Lol, man this hits home a little too close.
I'm noticing a trend of digital versions of games being released on Day 1 while there's a limited amount of physical editions released afterwards. I pre-ordered the physical edition of A Plague's Tale and it was supposed to arrive this week, but it turns out it was backordered (presumably due to limited quantities). Do everything you can to scoop up these physical editions because only a select few gamers will have them in the future.
Called it! That Unreal Engine rumor was misleading. If they're doing it in UE, then it should be a Remake. But its just a remaster. So ... Its using UE4 as a frontend for various UI elements for the trilogy's bundle/common launch menu. Grand Theft Auto Trilogy remasters are being developed by Rockstar Dundee, which previously worked on the Halo: The Master Chief Collection under the name Ruffian Games. The same devs used UE4 frontend for the MCC collection's UI and menus previously. This remaster is not actually being made in Unreal Engine. Its the same ol' GTA III,VC, SA code made using Renderware. Just spruced up a bit. Similar to Halo MCC.
" ... using Unreal Engine to make these classics more vibrant and more immersive than ever " Nah ... Its pretty evident still renderware-based.
Hasn’t it been leaked that the controls have been updated?
Gimme anything but this tripe.. Dead Space Trilogy, Mass Effect Trilogy, Silent Hill Collection (2 and 3 at least), Fallout 3 Remastered, F.E.A.R. Trilogy, The Darkness Collection, Spec Ops: The Line.. Anything but GTGAY on my Switch, lol
I find the newly modeled characters funny looking. I understand the originals, but this looks like a cartoon haha
Waiting for word on if the original soundtracks made it in
So not on steam ? Switch it is I guess
Nice graphic improvements, i never played the original trilogy, so this looks like a great way to play them in Steam Deck when I get mine in December.
Grove Street games Does NOT DESERVE another chance!!!! They famously screwed up the previous GTA ports that just got taken down. FYI those previous ports where shitty mobile ports they reported again to console. Zero love or care for original games, slap dash paint job for a quick buck. I have no hope for this DE edition now that this studio thats known for very shabby ports is doing it. Thanks Taketwo interactive for again being ultra cheap and greedy and having no love for fans or respect for old games. for $60 these should be absolute stellar ports, not a cobbled together mobile ports with a little higher rez textures.
Vice City looks like Fortnite now like too damn colorful.
Seriously? Vice City is totally allowed to be over the top colourful. Did you ever watch Miami Vice?
I played Vice City long enough to know that it was colorful but not overly colorful like I see in the Definitive version it looks almost cel shaded.
Yawn. You're a fool if you buy this and give lazy Rockstar more money. And looking at the trailer the characters look like plastic dolls.
"You don't like what I like....you must be an idiot!!!" 🙄
Graphically speaking the games look really nice and there are some big improvements hopefully there are some big game playing movements and also some quality of life features like midmission checkpoints I don't know what some of you were expecting but what I saw is what I was expecting and it looks nice. 238k likes to under 6k dislikes says it all
I'm happy with the updates. I'll be picking this up. The only thing that concerns me is "up to 60fps" on XSX and PS5. Why not just say "60fps"? It's probably nothing, but I look forward to the Digital Foundry analysis.
I will be playing San Andreas on Game Pass day one
With a Rockstar games lol you wish they put that day 1. They the most greedy bastard out there these day.
Look again it said Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas not the whole trilogy, just like how PSnow the GTA 3.
I will be playing GTA San Andreas on game pass day one
He didn't say he would play the trilogy on Game Pass. He specifically said San Andreas which will be on the service.....
But, is it worth $69
Trailer looks trash. Turn brightness up - Done. If you think about it, if they near remade this.. it'd bring back my generation (30-40yo) and the kids who got into gta 5, record sales But no rockstar you keep doing you.
San Andreas on Game pass day one and GTA3 on PSNow Early December is a welcome bonus.
It comes out on Remembrance Day. How fitting. Play these remasters to remember a time when you didn't have to wait a decade or more for a new GTA.
Worth it for GTA 3 alone. Game really needed a remaster.
🤔 the original GTA’s with the top down view, we’re good for their time. I’d like to see those remade, with the same top down view, but with some visual and gameplay advancements. GTA 3, vice city and San Andreas are growing tired to me.
will wait, expected more.
Anyone know if there will be a physical version for Switch or PS5? Be cool to have this on Switch in handheld mode.
Well, I can accept when I'm wrong and this time I'm wrong. Rockstart seems to actually care about making a real remaster, 1) the graphics are quite improved versus the usual resolution bump/60 frames. 2) They decided to address some of the flaws like not having saves point at the start of a mission (remember that before you had to redo all the missions including driving to the mission) 3) Putting out physical copies and not digitals only. Others tidbit that nobody seems to care to discuss San Andreas will be on Game pass in November while the original Gta3 will be on PSnow in December. There's no PlayStation 5 physical version.
At 0:32 didn't know Dutch also had a plan in GTA.
I hope they make a physical PS5 version in the future. Have no interest in buying the PS4 version especially with no free upgrade.
Saving my money for GTA 6 I am not giving Rockstar any more money until then
