I'm sure GTA will look good on the new consoles, I'm just hoping that they will fix their infuriating wanted system! The way cops just spawn everywhere, worse when you're in the air is just nothing short annoying. And the way the cops just push, bash and ram looks so stupid. Please Rock* fix your AI behavior for the wanted system...

I plan on getting GTA V on the P.C. unless it turns out to be poorly optimized at launch. (I'm looking at you Watch Dogs) In which case I'll pick it up on either the PS4 or XB1. Depending on which version the majority of my friends get. Regardless of which platform you buy it for I'm fairly certain that it will indeed "delight."


**Naysayers can say nay all the live long day =still looks awesome to me.**

Next-Gen GTA V Will “Delight”
 
Leslie Benzies, President of Rockstar North, actually used the word "delight" to describe shark cards.  Is there anybody out there who is delighted with shark cards?  No?  Then why should we believe the same a-hole when he says we'll be delighted with the next gen version of GTA V.  They can't even think up new words to describe their lies.

Sony just confirmed what I have been saying all along regarding exclusives. MS pay to deny while Sony pay to create.

My GTAV remaster on PS4 is already pre-ordered. How can you not play this on PS4. It's the best game world ever created and will be running in superb quality on PS4. It was always meant to be PS4. The PS3 port was just a marketing ploy to grab as many sales as possible up front seeing as that was the biggest use base, but the real deal will be on PS4. I fully believe Rockstar when they claim we will be mighty impressed. The game will be a demonstration of what the PS4 is actually capable of when pushed to the limit with advanced tech. It will be a bench mark for others to follow.

I laughed at his comment about capturing the whole world, but it was just a way of saying that although they have captured a huge user base so far, there are a lot more gamers out there who they did not capture who would love it.

Last time I checked, Final Fantasy 7-12 aren't on any non-Sony consoles and only a few of those games have PC ports.  Square-Enix surely would have released ports of those games by now, so I find it hard to believe that Sony isn't still buying them off.


Sony and their fans are being hypocritical as usual.

No way will I be picking up GTA5. Series lost its appeal long ago for me, and I'm surprised there's still 34 million people chewing on that piece of trash. LOL I say that jokingly...relax. :)

Are you actually showing the articles you read for content, in the video that you are using to regurgitate information, which we are currently watching?


This feels too much like when teachers say," Alright class, please read your syllabus while I read it aloud."

Thanks, but I prefer quiet while reading.

i was under the impression that gta 5 would come to next gen consoles around september 11, did they change the release date?

Phil Spencer is a fan of EA's business practices, what a surprise.  Meanwhile Sony keeps making all the fan-friendly moves.

A week without you will stink, Jess, but enjoy your time off while we sit here missing you. [gives wide-eyed guilt stare]

@moesuir 

When Sony say "not interested" they mean they will enter a contract with the dev to give help with the game development, help promote the game with advertising or maybe even reduce the licence fee to publish on the PS4, they will NOT pay a huge corrupt bribe to the 3rd party dev in order to make the game an exclusive like MS do. Big moral difference.

Slow down there buddy GTA resolution will be the same both PS4 and XB1 will run in 1080p 30fps except I believe the XB1 version colors will be a bit more vibrant but in case your wondering I'm getting the XB1 version where I'll definitely have the best controller lol

@ExoticCharm 

The Final Fantasy decision has nothing to do with Sony. No money would have been paid by Sony to deny the game on the other platforms. It's a commercial decision by Square-Enix.

Final Fantasy is a Jap RPG so the market is pretty predictable. The majority of the user base will be in Japan and they will have a Sony console because the Nintendo won't be powerful enough to run it and xbox struggles in Japan. Western Jap RPG fans are mostly on Playstation anyway, so Square-Enix would be basing their decision purely on where they can sell the game and make money. The game will go to where the majority of players are.

That is totally different to the Tomb Raider scandal where the majority of the fans are on Playstation and PC, but MS paid a corrupt bribe to Square-Enix in order to deny the game on Playstation and PC. That was an unforgivable betrayal and had no relation to the size of the market wanting the game. The bribe was a compensation for the lost sales that should have gone to the fans. MS and Square-Enix crossed a moral line on that one and will pay dearly.

@ExoticCharm 11 is on 360. I think the reason 7 8 9 and 10 aren't on anything but PC and PS is because Squeenix is flat out dumb. They said earlier this year if FF8 sells well on PC (again) they'll consider more FF ports. We did get FF3, but the remake version. So they may bring FF13 collection but idk about X X2 and 12.


Also because all of those games predate the merger of Squaresoft and Enix, you know back when they were separate respectable companies.

@dreamreaver721 

What are you talking about claiming you were only joking. There is no joke in your comment. You just expressed an opinion and called GTAV trash. A cynical comment is not humour so why are you laughing. GTAV is one of the best games ever made. It was obviously wasted on you and went straight over your head.

@Jasper_73 no. no it isn't. hideo no longer makes exclusives. silent hill has been multiplat for a while now. hideo's last exclusive was MGS4. the only metal gear not to appear on xbox.

@grin89 For North America anyway, why do people always come up with a release date they heard when it's not a Tuesday?!

@grin89 I think they never said anything about a release date apart from "Fall 2014"

@dirtydishes23 @Jasper_73 Sounds like Hypocracy to me. Exclusivity is exclusivity as far as i am concerned .They surely must have paid them some money, as how would releasing on one console and only getting your game out to half the audience be a financially sound decision.

@m-kswiss @WarGod667 @dreamreaver721 ofc im serious. The whole michael witness protection was just a load of bull imo. Frankie? dont make me laugh, that character was nothing, only thing i remember him being good at was laughing at trevor tripping over his fence, that scene was funny as hell, but only due to trevor being such a psychopath.

@Jasper_73 @dirtydishes23 or the console they're choosing to release their product on has undeniably superior hardware and they don't want to limit what they've created.

@bdrtfm @Jasper_73 @dirtydishes23 Ive seen this quite a bit. where a game is only being advertised as being on ps4 to find out later that actually that some of those are in fact being released on both systems. Funny I cant think what games they are now. but silent hills at this moment has no mention what so ever about a release on any other platform. but what ever they are both as bad as each other and exclusivity only hurts the consumers.

@Jasper_73 @bdrtfm @dirtydishes23  I think its some kind of PR stunt. They are either getting timed exclusive content or the PT was exclusive to them or some such thing. Sony is very good at this. They make things look exclusive even when they are not. I mean if they show a teaser and say the teaser is exclusive to Sony in such a way, it makes it sound like the game will be exclusive. I've read so many articles on this subject and, nobody really knows for sure.

bdrtfm

@Jasper_73 @bdrtfm @dirtydishes23  Sony does this with a lot of games. Just look at the ads on GameSpot and other sites. Games like Destiny, Diablo 3 RoS,  all say "Coming to PS3.PS4." It doesn't say it's not coming to Xbox, it just doesn't mention this. As I've said before, I still have people coming into my electronics shop looking for used PS4's as they think Destiny is a Sony exclusive. They are relieved when I tell them that it is coming to Xbox One as well. Just goes to show the power of marketing. It really does work. Most people just see an ad on TV and assume it's on that platform only.

@bdrtfm  Nearly every ad for every game that is paid for by Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo only shows their platform under the "coming to" line. Why would they pay to advertise a game for their competitor? If it is an ad from the dev/pub of the game then it will generally announce every platform that it will come out on.

Jasper_73

@bdrtfm I know how can you make an informed choice about which console you want to buy. If for instance I wanted a xbox so I could keep my profile etc. But all the games I want are advertised as only showing a ps4 release. So I buy a ps4 then find out later that actually they are being released on the xbox I originally wanted. Would I get my money back? No I would not. This is false advertising and in most other industries Illegal in this country. But I guess international law is different and that just complicates things, and that is why they can get away with it.

@bdrtfm The differences is Microsoft came out and said "Tomb Raider will be exclusive to xbox" ...  they essentially tried to lie and get away with it.

@Infinite_Access @bdrtfm They were very specific in saying it was exclusive in 2015. When you read between the lines that sounds VERY temporary for a game coming out Holiday 2015.
