New GTAV images are current-gen

Rockstar explains batch of 10 new images from open-world game based on Xbox 360 and PS3 hardware.

The 10 new Grand Theft Auto V images Rockstar Games released this week were pulled from current-generation consoles, the company explained on its blog today.

"These screens are from the current generation of consoles," Rockstar said.

Each of GTAV's three protagonists show up in the screenshots: Franklin is shown causing trouble with a minigun, Trevor is seen escaping pursuers on a motorcycle, and Michael can be found standing in front of a car.

Other shots show the game's setting of Los Santos from various angles, including underwater. There's also a shot of the Santa Maria pier with a building in the background being struck by lightning.

GTAV launches September 17 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

R* is hands down the best when it comes to open world games. Can't wait to just cruize Los Santos. No doubt they are adding alot of stuff to do besides the main story and side missions!

If GTA V isn't coming out on PC, it can suck my ovaries...

It's the gameplay that I like about the GTA series. I'm sure I'll be getting it for this and next-gen. Next-gen won't be for a while though for me. Ill be waiting to see which company, Sony or Microsoft, is going to put the least amount of restrictions on us with their new consoles.

Dont have a console anymore.. the games that will make me get a current gen console again:

MGS: Gound Zeroes,    MGS 5,    Final Fantasy Versus XIII (will never happen),   and MAYBE GTA 5.. depends on when its released for PC/PS4.

Screw waiting for the next gen console. I need GTA V ASAP.  Besides, it's not like I buy consoles launch date anyway.

Rockstar are damned if they do and damned if they don't! People are stoked up, waiting to play this with more eagerness than I've ever seen before in  a GTA release...?(IMO)

If they hadn't released anything, people would moan. Now they have released something, everyone moans still? WTF?

A title with this much following is never going to release any huge teaser content, before the game comes out, as they do not need to do it! I know of no gamer, fan or not, whom isn't interested in what this game is going to be like? 

Anticipation is everything here and rightly so. I would be disappointed in Rockstar if they HAD released more! I don't want to see it, personally? Teasers/Spoilers just spoil the build up to something this huge!

One good thing about this, if nothing else is... Rockstar must be extremely confident in their game, by not releasing anything much on this title? That is sweet news for Gaming fans of the legendary Grand Theft Auto series... Of which there are plentiful!

I am just wondering if the companies are competing for us or competing strictly against each other ? it's good that they take some complaints into consideration , but , when they stack up to the ceiling ? by now R* and others know just how far they can go with the "current" gen. consoles so just get it done ! you guys have already impressed me with most of your (newer) other titles ! don't play games , leave that to us ! ...

My top priority is story and gameplay. If you have boring cutscenes with lifeless characters and clunky controls, your game fails. Graphics are just pictures for menus. The main dish is what I'm paying for.

Ex: Saints Row 2 had shitty graphics, but the story was interesting, funny, sad, gritty, and overall very engaging. Just like San Andreas.

Current gen console screenshots that have been bullshotted to hell and back. C'mon R*, who do you think you're fooling?

GTA V will be an amazing way to close out the current generation of consoles

These days I do most of my gaming on PC but that won't stop me from putting many, many hours into the 360 version of GTA V

Sure, there will most likely be a PC port at some point, but would it really be worth waiting months after the console launch?

I don't care how much you complain that the graphics wont hold, RDR looked great on my xbox 360, and I know this will too.

Current gen or Next gen, don't matter how much lip-gloss you put on a donkey, it's still a donkey.

Actual gameplay and not cheap ass cutscenes is what drives me to whether I want to pick up a game or not.

Nothing to see here. Moving on.

You can't trust screenshots to accurately portray how a game (which requires a certain framerate) will actually look played at home in your machine. Screenshots don't really mean everything since they can crank the LOD distances and shader effects way up to make an optimal looking still image that would actually run fewer than 10 fps on current generation console GPUs. Wait until they release another trailer before you start taking things at face value.

Yeah, the previous screens were from the PS3 version if im not mistaken so this makes a lot of sense ...

Always a good laugh to read comments from console/PC fanboys.
Gonna buy this for my PS3. If it comes out on PC, that would be great too. Everyone has the right to enjoy GTA V.
"Hope it doesn't get a PC port, screw PC's, they got pirates and suddenly I care for the bad PC pirates that share this game on internet and they do not pay" etc etc etc.
Bollocks. Pirates are everywhere son.Get used to it.
Now, comparing which community has the biggest amount of game piracy, well...should we all be concerned about this? Just buy the damn game for yourself and shut up.

they should delay and wait for the next gen. the wait would be worth it.

To all those fanboys, real gamers play games no matter the console. All that matters are the games. I'm playing dark souls on ps3, l4d2 on pc, zombiu on wii u, nsmbs2 on 3ds, and various app games on my iPhone. Get over the fanboyism and enjoy games. I will have this day 1 for my ps3.

@JennaralizeIt probably will, much later down the track compared to consoles though. Get a console lol.

@Avemaster94 It mostly won't. Rockstar is probably doing something else which is equally or more awesome for next gen

@playniko69 compared the crap that has been flooding the market this past couple of years I think anything Rockstar puts out is probably gonna be better than most

@Spartan_418 Yes, yes it will be worth the wait for the PC version, very much so; because that WILL be the first "next gen" GTA.

MarcjinJaume

@07wintert You might as well wait a little longer and get it for the PS5 or Xbox1080. This game has been developed for this gen, there's no point in porting it now to the next gen. There will be a true next gen GTA in the future. But we've been waiting five years for this one and it's now time to play it.

I play about 1-2 hours a day. I watch no tv or movies. I have 2 kids and a wife. Work close to 60 hours s week being the owner of 6 dunkin donuts. You have to find time to enjoy what you like.

@da_chub "real gamers" only play games at 1080p 60fps or above.

anything below that is automatically a bad game

trololol

Spartan_418
Spartan_418

@james_324 Nope. Higher res, higher framerate and mod support don't make it a next-gen game; aside from mods the console version will be every bit as fun as the PC version.

@MarcjinJaume  because your fool as a PC game gamer i was playing GTA4 in max settings and it looked incredible. if you had patience the wait would be worth it i guarantee for you.

@da_chub its all lies this guy just told us he has never failed at anything in life!!! lies all lies! bet he will tell us next he is 6'5 and has a huge....

brainiac1988

@Spartan_418  It will make it a next gen game.  They are not gonna make a new engine and redo the whole game for PS4. All versions will use the same engine.

Besides, PS4 architecture is basically equal to PC, therefore it will probably be the same.

And GTA has always looked a lot better on PC. Higher res, higher framerate, Anti Aliasing,  greatly increased view distance...

@Spartan_418 @james_324 Actually the mod support alone can lead to significant graphics improvements so yes even GTA4 looked better than GTA5 does now. It would even be more fun, seriously go look at all the things you can do with mods in GTA4.

james_324
james_324

@Spartan_418 @james_324 Why not? Frostbite 2 is clearly a next gen engine (now being replaced by a subtly better FB3).. Have you played it on PC? It obliterates the console version and makes it look like a 90s game.

It can make a world of difference.

MarcjinJaume
MarcjinJaume

@07wintert@MarcjinJaumeEven if they released it for the next gen it wouldn't be a true next gen game. I rather they spent the time making a true next gen GTA instead. And if you play on PC what do you care anyway? You'll be abe to play it on max setting with mods when it comes to PC... fool.
