Hey all,

as you guys are aware, thousands of topics are floating around about a GTA5, SA is brought up a lot, and the same replies go along the lines of "it wont fit, they will cut some out"

Surely that is bull sh*t right? This is next gen we are talking about, in the next 3 years, I would expect to see a GTA map which is bigger than SA. Whats the point of next gen if they cant fit anything on?

With the same graphics as SA? Hell ya. With more modern, higher resolution textures et al... that is the question.

My guess? Yes. If the appropriate compression techs were used and a bunch of useless stuff wasn't included.

San Andrea's was rubbish get over it! Of all the GTA games that's the most unlikely to be remade.

It's not so much a question of space, more a question of time needed to detail so many things

Not with the same level of detail as GTA 4. That's why they're saying that the next Gta will probably be PS3 exclusive unless the x-box is able to change their format or something. Sucks! I dont' want to have to buy a PS3 yet. cryani.gif

Probably because this isn't Next Gen anymore, its current gen and just because these are the newest and most advanced consoles right now doesn't suddenly mean games can make huge leaps in advancement and give you twice the map size, twice the gameplay then in the past, all with great graphics. Mostly with this generation we are simply getting better graphics and that's about it. Simply put this generation or "next generation" as the marketing buzzword goes isn't all its been hyped to be and it works with people buying PS3's and Xbox 360's hoping for this "blow ya mind" experience.

I think if San Andreas is put into the "next gen" then maybe less is more. Make the cities bigger and more lifelike and skip the countryside. Take the train or fly from city to city. Maybe have some sort of freeway link where you drive out, the screen fades out and then comes back again a few game-hours later in one of the other cities.

Perhaps with this they could indeed add a fourth city.

I agree to an extent with Freakeh in that the "next-gen" is more about nicer graphics than anything, but it's logical to think the gameplay will improve in time as it did with Vice and SA that followed GTA4. For lack of a less trite way of putting it, IV is the new III and 5-7 years from now will be looked upon as such.

Yeah, I think we all need to face the fact that blu-ray is essential for the future of gaming.

To Mainland Marauder:
No! They can't leave out the countryside! It's one of the most distinctive parts of SA, and if they left it out if they went back to SA on next-gen consoles, I would have to take a hostage or two...

No. GTA V is bigger than SA, IV and RDR combined, with room to spare. 360 needs two discs.

I don't think a GTA will be available until 2017 or 2018
