This was the version of the game I was waiting for. I only bought the Xbox 360 version because I had friends that had it, and it would drive me crazy not having the game. I wanted it as soon as possible so I preordered it. Those 9 months of silence on the NG/PC version would be painful, and they were painful enough (though I was happy to have the game and they weren't as painful as waiting for the LG version).
Here is my list of reasons to buy the next gen/PC version.
-Massively improved graphics making the game much more immersive. In a game like this, that is key. I will appreciate the next gen/PC versions graphics much more after I have been playing the 360 version. I can definitely see that it was improved. This is the vision of the game that Rockstar had. Also by looking at the train track part of the trailer, it looked like there were height maps applied to the rock texture, which means that little tiny pebbles will act like their 3D when you move the camera around. Much more immersive and definitely a huge improvement over last gen.
-More animals. This may also mean more peds as well.
-Modding (PC). This is a huge one. You can turn the game into anything!!!! I see lots of modding potential on this game.
-Video Editor and possibly play your own tracks (PC).
-Possible cockpit camera.
-Possibly a larger player capacity in GTA Online.
-Enhanced controller features (PS4 and possibly PC too with a little modding).
-Possible exclusive content.
-Rockstar claimed that they designed GTA O to be able to add as much as they want, like Liberty City. I don't see that happening on last gen.
-Remote play on PS Vita. Play the game on the go! (PS4)
-Possible significant discount to upgrade from PS3/Xbox 360 version to the PS4/Xbox One version. Gamestop may do trade ins for last gen copies as well.
