GTA 5 consoles?

Do you think GTAV will stay on the "big" consoles? (Xbox, PS3, and computers) or will they release a handheld (PSP, maybe DS/iPhone) version also?

 

I think that if the PSP2 is like the rumors, that it can handle most of GTAV, at least much more than chinatown wars was

Haven't used a handheld in years, so I hope they concentrate on the 'Big 3', then work on the 'littluns'

Pretty sure they'll stick with the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC for now, simply because that's been their target demographic for years. Also, taking into consideration that the PSP2 is rumored to be as powerful as the PS3 it just means it'll take just as long to develop for, and it's new hardware. So, realistically-speaking, if they do decide to develop another GTA title for handheld devices it won't be for another couple years. Remember that they're also busy with Agent, Max Payne 3, and Bully 2.

No they will release GTA V on the big consoles not handheld. However they will release a game on the handheld but not a GTA V version.

Handhelds are you kidding me? I'm not even sure if the PC will get V let alone a handheld.

Lol. I don't think you realize how big the PC fanbase is for GTA games.

Maybe they'll release a PSP game after they announce GTA V, depending on how long it is till the release date, LCS/VCS were just to hold people over while they worked on IV

If the PC doesn't get V, well...... I don't know. I guess R* would just be cool with losing a big chunk of sales. I mean, I'm not a PC gamer (at the moment), but that'd be a huge dick move.

i think that GTA should have stayed sony exclusive and if it was then GTAIV would have been much better and V should go back to being only on PS3. blu-ray disks can hold alot more than a DVD and with more space comes more game and more content ph34r.gif

But then they can't make as much money, and thats what its all about, if it was just PS3, they lose 1/2 (or whatever #) of their sales. Its not like I'm gonna go pay $300 for a PS3 just to play a $60 game, even if it is GTA

I hope they do a PC version but it will probably be a port. Maybe this time, the person who does the port will have more than half-a-hamster brain.

I bought my PS3 for a multitude of games, basing my decision on who's exclusives I preferred (really for me, the only deciding factor between the consoles).

Wait, what? when did they say that?

 

anyways, I bet they'll release a couple of hand held ones after GTAV.

I have a psp and I did not enjoy playing gta on there, steering was never quite right. I play the 2 god of war games and use it as a portable dvd player.

R*s Most recent game has failed to come out for PC nearly a year after its release If La Noire does not come out on PC then i would doubt what you have to say.

Oh har har. Glad to see I'm getting noticed. tounge2.gif

 

No, he's right that Blu-ray can hold more, and thus a PS3-exclusive version would have had the potential for more content. But looking at how people act with just a 2-4 year window since the last console GTA, the potential would likely have to go unused, or people would end up forgetting GTA all together. (Think more like 8 years to fill the potential in a fully compressed Blu-ray GTA.

 

On topic though: If history is to repeat itself, there will be a console GTA V and then a side story set in the same city on PSP2 and 3DS. That is, assuming the next game is GTA V of course.

They released Chinatown wars on handheld consoles not too long ago so I doubt they would release GTA 5 on hanheld consoles. Although im sure they are gonna make more GTA's on hanheld consoles.

Agent and Max Payne 3 have been in development for roughly 6 years or so, if I'm not mistaken. As for Bully 2, I think it was the music composer who scored the original Bully that confirmed a while ago that he was working on the music for the sequel via a message left on Twitter. In any case, I don't expect an official announcement on GTA V until Agent is out on store shelves. I say this because Max Payne has already established itself as a popular brand amongst gamers while Agent itself is fairly new to the mix.

I reckon that R* with continue to stick with the consoles and PC versions of the game. Hell, they could just pull an EA and release their games for every gaming device that is in existence. The more money the better right?

Well, if you ask me, I'd rather have quality over quantity.

 

But I guess if there is enough demand for other platforms then it's possible. But I'd also like to think they have certain platforms reserved i.e. the main titles like GTA IV and its DLC for current-gen consoles and PCs while the prequels and spin-offs are reserved for the handheld market.

 

In any case, I don't see them operating the way EA does with their games. They're certainly taking their sweet time this generation, you know, which is a good thing.

Some of you guys are too serious here. R* should just stick with the consoles and PC. There. Guess the joking wasn't that obvious.

I think that they will continue to release games on the hand helds, the PSP versions did well (mainly LCS/VCS) and those 2 weren't full projects, they were side games to keep (us) at bay while they finished GTA IV, I feel like they will do something like that, especially if GTA V is gonna take a while longer

Just going by the very rough estimate of 3 consoles= 1/3 of sales for each, I don't thing R* would give up that many sales, plus, people like be and many many other xbox and/or PC owner would be furious, i wouldn't spent the 400 bucks on a PS3 just to play gta V, then again i could just be a free loader and use my cousins. ph34r.gif

I'm just hoping that R* stays away from DS if they choose to return to handhelds, that way we don't end up with CTW esque games that look like amateur cartoons.

They never do more than one game on a Nintendo handheld. So if history shows, they will have one on either the DSi or the 3DS.

 

And they say the 3DS is more powerful than the GameCube, so you have nothing to worry about there.

Yea but I hope they don't make the same game for the DS and PSP, CTW was never meant to leave the PSP, thats what it was made for, and it was a bust IMO on the PSP
