It's been over 11 months since GTA V was released and then almost 3 months ago we had GTA V announced for PS4, Xbox one and PC. That pretty much confirms GTA V won't be ever released on Vita, no big suprise. We all know Vita is selling bad and it doesn't have many good AAA games and that applies for both exclusives and multi-platforms games from big consoles, it's all about indies and being able to stream from PS4...
And this is very sad indeed, because PSP was an awesome console that had games like Liberty City Stories, Vice City Stories, Midnight Club LA Remix, Manhunt 2, Midnight Club 3, The Warriors and GTA Chinatown Wars. And these are just Rockstar games of course. These games didn't look and run much worse than PS2 did, that was really impressive for PSP.
The last big and significant AAA game released on Vita was Borderlands 2, of course it had to have downgraded resolution and graphics to pull off what big consoles could, but even with that the fps is low and unstable (12-30, quite often in low 20's) I think it's obvious by now that a game size of GTA V with it's hugeness and level of detail wouldn't be possible to pull off on Vita, even with Vita's lower resolution of 960x544 compared to 1280x720 on PS3 and Xbox 360.
I don't think they would even consider downgrading the game world and mechanics even further so VITA could play it. FPS would be probably very low too.
But a GTA title exclusively developed on Vita would be another thing. Smaller, maybe based entirely in city with little to none rural areas?
If done right it could be an awesome game imo, just think about it - a good story with great missions, many interiors, VITA's touchscreen features, activities and good amount of content squeezed into a map (I wouldn't mind loading screens for interiors)
I think city of London would be a wonderful choice because folks at Rockstar North are based in the UK, and if done right that game could boost Vita sales like crazy.
What do you think? Might happen or not? Is Vita already dead or sentenced to die in shadow of PS4?
This was probably disscussed before but I wanted some fresh opinions. If this topic is crap then please delete it.
