"But if you don't already own GTA V, don't go out and get it yet. Wait just a bit longer to get the better experience and really stick it to them."
Umm, isn't that kind of contradictory? "Take that, you! I won't buy your product today! How do you like that? but i will buy it later, so don't worry."
Because it's a quality game. The artists, the programmers, all the actual DEV people working at Rockstar are incredible people and it is worth buying their game to show appreciation for their work.
What is NOT acceptable is paying twice for the same game all because the shareholders want more money. The decision to delay the port to next gen and PC is a pure financial one. No other reason than this. They are squeezing all the money out of you that they can. And this is not something we should find "okay" or "not a big deal" today. It's not like this game is an exclusive or anything, they're just exploiting the quality work their artists and coders do because they simply know people won't resist holding out. Hence my warning to people, muster up the strength to wait just a bit longer. With the immense sales numbers of the launch consoles, they now know there's a very solid amount of people out there that own these devices and will be looking for "next gen" games to play on their shiney new system. The temptation to milk these people yet again is far too great to miss out on.
And their word officially was "we have no plans to port GTA V to PC or next gen consoles," and I don't know about you, but if I took their word as gospel, to quote another user in here, that sounds to me like if I want to experience the game I guess I better get it for PS3/Xbox 360. Yet given their track record of lying outright, well we know what's going to be happening in the next few months. And it isn't going to be GTA V still stuck in the past.
Ok, I can see your point. And I admit that I'm not much into developer hype or politics, and I don't really pay attention to what anybody says about their games until they are out, but if they say one thing and do another, then yeah, that sucks.
