Had to know this announcement would cause an uproar, people bitched when wasn't coming for next gen, and now they're bitching that it is. I don't hear people complaining that COD gets the same game released every November with a shiny new paint job, so why is this any different? The average video game these days gets 3 months of play before consumers move on to something else, that you're still here means you clearly enjoy the game in some capacity. Be grateful for a change, your whole outlook on life will improve. Some people you just can't please, ffs...

OP is bringing up a good point. But what Rockstar did was a smart thing to do business wise.

It's what the internet is there for, so kids can compete to show which one has the most outrage.

Rockstar Games always have lied. Wait when GTA 5 is delayed for PC/PS4 and Xbox One like last time for ps3 and xbox 360

Absolutely agree. 

 

The question should be asked, although, how many people purchased ps3/xbox in spite of GTA release. I should remind that R* made clear about their plans not to release game on nextgen same time as old consoles. For some people it was true decision-maker. I purchased XBOX only for Forza reasons, having GTA V in mind back in time. 

What is sad is Sony/MS policy and impotence to bring some nice games on new platforms: no GTA V, no Gran Turismo on both XBOX One or PS4. A lot of my friends (>25 y.o. with a job) told me that they will absolutely go for new console with GTA V or next gen racing game. Which was failed to provide to us.

And so what if they "lied."  What is your freakin' point?  Companies change their mind about sh*t all the f*cking time.

its not a lie, thats called marketing my friend...

everybody knew that this game was gonna be way too big to keep it in last gen, the transition to current gen was a logic move.

what they did was to maximize profit by making a superb launch of the game in last gen, making unprecedent profit while they were at it.

anyone with a little knowledge in marketing know that you dont talk about a future product when you want people to focus on what youre selling them NOW. hinting about the possibility of a "next gen" conse release back in 2013 would have affected the sales.

anyway, to this point i have no plans of moving to current gen, ill wait til the game is released, see how things playout, to see if it worth the $400+ investment i would have to make to move into ps4.

Yes, this is so evil that they wont allow us to play on last gen anymore. Evil Rockstar! How do they dare hacking our PS3s/Xbox360s so that they won't play GTAV anymore.

For people like you that just got the game? Yeah it may seem bad, but for us that have had the game since it's release date it has been worth it. Plus that means that when the Xbox One version does come out, i'll already be level 100+ with a full garage. Can't complain about that. Plus i'm sure Gamestop will have some kind of bonus for trading in your 360/PS3 version.

So i can see by the threads popping up that everyone is jumping for joy but i look at it a different way. 

 

For example, GTA 5 was released on the PS3 at the end of it's life cycle without even hinting to the consumer next gen was a go. So everyone ran out and bought the game making them an insane amount of money as the "last hurrah" for the system. Now that you have found out your money actually wen't towards something that will be completely worthless, do you not feel a little weird? 

 

It's like going to the buffet an hour before lunch then leaving when the fresh food comes out, doesn't make sense. 

 

EDIT: I have only had GTA 5 for 3 weeks. All the "you got your moneys worth" time arguments do not apply to me. 

 

So basically, three weeks ago you didn't think of all this and now you start crying? Please man, do you not have brains to think for yourself?

It's ok, we all make mistakes. I tried to route all this next-gen release speculation into one thread, only to have someone call me an idiot and then the thread gets locked  :cry:

Why would someone complain about COD instead of GTA on GTAForums I wonder

I've been playing he game steady since it came out, so yes I GOT MY MONEY'S WORTH.

 

But I'll be a little ticked if I don't get a discount on the Xbox One game since I already paid 60 bucks for GTA V.

You could have f*cked a girl, made her pregnant and had a baby between the time last gen and current gen came out.
Think of R* as a pussy, and last gen was the baby that has been cooking in it's belly and now you are taking it to pregnancy class, learning how to breathe all in preparation for the big birth. The pregnancy is also an important part of the experience, but now you get to play with your fully developed baby  ;)


Did all that during the last nine months of GTA vs development, smart timing..

Moreso than "lying to us" about next-gen, I would've much preferred if they had've waited an extra year before release to release a dedicated next gen game rather than just a port (which is what it appears to be atm.).

i.e. Dont release GTA V on PS3/360, but make it a next gen game with much more features + graphics. Or maybe release it on both gens but make it primarily next-gen.

 

I also hope we R* don't charge full price for the game. I don't mind paying €55 for a next gen version, as long as its a different game i.e. new features, more to do etc. The single player of GTA V has absolutely no replay value IMO, unlike the older GTAs.

Either way, I know most of us will still end up paying full price anyway.

GTA5 on 360 was so worth the money I prepared to buy it again on ps4 digital download as soon as it's released. No other games manufacturer in the world give me so much bang for my buck game in game out.

Besides something tells me GTAO for the next gen consoles will be a totally different plaything.

They never lied. They just never confirmed or denied a possible next gen, which was in itself a confirmation of next gen.

You could've had it for 3 hours and you still got your money's worth.

The product sold to you was solid; whether you took advantage of it or not is subjective to you...

I think the better question is, is it worth $60 again for what amounts to a graphics upgrade.

moreover, what will happen to the 360/ps3 communities, it's obvious that they won't be able to play with the newer gen communities, and as people port over, the already empty lobbies will become ghost towns. And as soon as R* finishes what ever content is slated for the 360/ps3, future content will more then likely be for ONLY the newer gen.

In fact it wouldn't surprise me if they delayed heists because of this and in fact made it part of the new gen only content.

Moreso than "lying to us" about next-gen, I would've much preferred if they had've waited an extra year before release to release a dedicated next gen game rather than just a port (which is what it appears to be atm.).

ah but see your not thinking like a money grubbing corporation, simply waiting another year costs money. It's better to release a broken downgraded piece of sh*t and get people to buy it, along with cash cards so you can make money during that extra year and then release it again for even more money.

it's truly diabolical, and you thought cash cards were the great Satan.

No they didn't. They said that they had not anounced any plans for anything other than PS3 and 360 releases. They didn't ever explicitly say they had no next gen or PC plans.

Copyright law in the UK basically says that if I own a licence for media on one format, I am entitled to copy it to another format.

E.G Purchased a CD, converted it to MP3 so I can listen to it on my phone or PC.

Since I don't have the means to convert GTA V to PC format, I will wait for someone to upload it and I will download it which I will not be breaking the law doing since I already own it on PS3. The only person committing any crime will be the uploader / file sharer.

I think that players on PS4/XB1 have a bigger beef, they will be far behind everyone who moves into a new console, don't forget too that the millions of early adopters who now have a chance to play GTA V for the first time.  I really don't understand why people feel gipped by R*.  Anyone who played the game knows they got their moneys worth, and most people have hoped for a long time that it would get ported to the newer consoles because, lets face it, most of us were going to buy a new console anyway.  I see it as win win for me, I got to hold out on  a  PS4 and play the greatest game in a dying generation of consoles and now I get to continue my fun on a current system with a polished version of GTA with more content. 

We didn't get the full game.  We got a beta.

It was obvious they were going to do it, some of us did make that clear but ofc idiots will be idiots and be all shocked when they announce it lol!

You know most software/games have clauses that pretty much reverse that right? Its mainly covers music and was added to make ipods/media player etc not such a legal mine field.
