Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto… One of the most popular yet controversial game series’ ever made. Hard to believe that it all started as a 2D top down game back in 1997! Now of course, it’s built on a 3D engine and is now tearing up the latest consoles in HD.

Developed in Scotland by Rockstar North, it’s definitely one of the finer British gaming exports and it’s still got plenty of life left in it yet. For years it’s managed to fend off clones, such as Saints Row and True Crime but Rockstar, doing what they do best, poked fun at them along the way.

Well then you would have the disc space to do some of the authors suggestions. But I don't see it happening.

I know some would suggest multi disc for the 360. That really makes multi player complicated though and going back to earlier parts of the game is usually a casulty to this approach(see ff xiii). DVD9 is holding this gen back more than some like to addmit.

Legosz5183d ago

You can always save on your harddrive and save yourself from disk swapping. But games like these just show how superior the PS3 is with bluray.

Nicaragua5183d ago (Edited 5183d ago )

Red Dead dosnt have a map that is an entire detailed city, its full of wide open deserts, plains etc.

Just like the massive world in Oblivion fits on a DVD9 disc with its exciting landscape of fuck all.

MasFlowKiller5183d ago (Edited 5183d ago )

Yeah i know the 360 compression tech is good but 3 different cities is probably not capable in a single DVD9, plus how many developers are going to pay microsoft royalties for a multiple disk?

I think the next GTA will be set in Las Ventures(AKA Las Vegas).
I dont think they can make a full San Andres with is different region and fit it in a DVD9.

Also i dont think anyone would argue that a full Las Vegas style GTA is a bad idea.

I would also like to note that GTA games are not all set in the same time lines, GTA3 (Liberty City) in mid 90s, GTA Vice city in the 80s, GTA San Andres in Early 90s. For all we know the next GTA game could be set in the 60s, 70s or even back in the 80s or 90s.

PS. The next GTA game is probably not going to be called GTA V unless they use a different engine. Each number is a reference to the engine they are using. That is why last gen GTA Vice City was not GTA4 and GTA San Andres was not GTA5

Would be better set in London IMO

Hideo_Kojima5183d ago

I would love GTA 4: London

I think they could pull of some good story with young gangs maybe starting of at the age of 18 selling weed etc and then getting mixed up with big cocaine dealers and carry on from there.

The map (if it could fit) would bee awesome because it is divided in 4 sections and a river running through them. Each area has different types of people even in real life.

koh5183d ago (Edited 5183d ago )

So you really don't think anyone would think that a landlocked city in the desert that Rockstar has already recreated would be a bad idea? I'll throw my hat in that ring then. Especially since a brand new Western game by Rockstar comes out in three days. Oceans are a GTA staple.

Trey_4_life5182d ago

If it ain't a ps3 exclusive then i might not buy it because i have had enough of playing half made games because of the limited space of the DVD9.

I say they make two separate games on each console simultaneously! That is the only way to be fair and they will still make a ton of money. If one of them turns out better, don't get angry, get a new console!

They could even still use a lot of the same dialog, story and actors, while just tweaking the mission locations for the different games. Since all cutscenes are in-engine, that won't be such a problem.

Hideo_Kojima5183d ago

If that happened the internet would implode from Fanboy comments, comparison videos, forum arguments, parody songs, maybe even online reviews the size of novels comparing the 2 games.

It would mean that both consoles get a better optimized game then they would if it was multiplat but I don't think Rockstar would ever risk making this the first World War on the internet.

Biggest5183d ago

And someone would still say "But the 360 version just seems a bit crisper!"

Bubble Buddy5183d ago

Just don't make it too realistic like IV and it will be fine and add less repetitive things to do and it will be fine.

voice_of_ reason5183d ago

I actually think realism wasn't the problem, I personally loved it. However, I agree about the repetitiveness of it. And also, make it so i can actually buy meaningful things with my money (i had like 1/2 million dollars and nothing to buy lol)

siyrobbo5183d ago

and lose about 8 million sales? i doubt it very very much

at the very least they could make it for the Ps3, and cut out what wont fit on the 360

Tho i dont see that happening at all

booni35183d ago

they wouldnt make as much money. it'll never happen.

cereal_killa5183d ago

I think by the time GTAV gets announced since R* North is busy with Agent M$ will most likely be announcing there new system with more HD storage and size limitation shouldn't be a problem any more.

NCAzrael5183d ago

Unless they go with a better disc medium (i.e. Blu-ray) hard drive space doesn't mean shit. If it was all about HDD space they could just stop gouging prices on their hard drives and sell a 500GB drive for $80 like the rest of the world. Although it would be funny to see how many 360 owners would try to play down the install times that it would take to install a multiple DVD game onto their hard drive while the PS3 had a minimal install while keeping most files on the BD.

You'll jump to any outrageous conclusions to avoid even considering saying anything even slightly negative about MS and/or the 360. It's one thing to have a personal preference, but you seem to be incapable of looking at these things objectively.

The less space developers have to work with, the less options they have, that's a simple fact. Obviously DVD9s are old tech, there's only so far you can go with it, Bluray has less limitations, you can admit this to yourself and still enjoy your 360 you know.

Simon_Brezhnev5183d ago

thats typical of the delusional 360 fanboys

Richard Alpert5183d ago

Says the delusional PS3 fanboy

boysenberry5183d ago

Make GTA V exclusively for the PS3. Don't let Microsoft and the 360 hold you back anymore!


Rockstar is making an exclusive that for sure, that is Agent.

booni35183d ago

are you so warped you wont even admit that a multiplat GTA would outsell an exclusive? my god you need help.
Xbox = 1
PS = 1
Xbox+PS = 2
can u at least pretend u hav common sense, wow.

iPad5183d ago

Wouldn't be surprised if Sony says:

We decided to change the title of Agent. It will now be called Gran Theft Auto V
