Obviously, when the HD re-release of GTA V hits, that means a whole lot of current players are going to be transferring over to either of the current-gen consoles, or PC...

 

...which, for GTAO, means that a player-base split between two platforms, will effectively get re-split five ways (three new, two existing).

Question is, how is that going to affect each platform's respective 'populations'? Are the older-gen console versions going to be left as virtual 'ghost towns'? Is PC too niche for a sizeable portion of players to move to it? Etc., usw, and all that.


Figured it was worth doing a quick poll (and maybe drawing up some quick charts based on the results) to give people an idea of how the numbers are going to be affected.

Granted, that's only based on Gtaforums members (and then, only those who vote!) - it can't take into account the larger game population, nor such factors as:

- PC/XBone/PS4 gamers who aren't currently playing GTAO, but are going to buy it when it hits those platforms.

 

- Likewise people who may well start playing on the existing two consoles down the line (for instance, people who don't want to splash out for new console or a gaming PC).

As for 'who's going where, from where', that's not trackable either (without manually checking who voted what on each part of the poll, at least), but that's not really relevant - the main aim is to get an idea of the current console populations, and how having the existing online player-base spread more thinly is likely to end up.


Note: if you're not sure about whether or not you're going to transfer to a different platform or not, go with what you're realistically going to do come the re-release.

 

For example, if you'd like to switch to PC, but probably won't have the money for a bespoke gaming rig in the forseeable future, better to vote 'staying on whichever console you're on', rather than 'moving to PC'.

Heh - as in "as soon as GTAO gets re-released, I'm going to rage-quit in protest!"? Might have to update the poll... ;)

When online is released I probably won't play gta online, but instead play some online based mod, similar to sa-mp on San Andreas.

I voted PS3--->PS4 but honestly I haven't even decided if I'm getting it again, if it's just a bog-standard port (which I expect it to be) I doubt I will. If I had a decent PC I'd get it without a doubt for it but that's not the case :( lol

Are you on both consoles currently? Might update it to be multiple choice (although can't really track multiple accounts on the same console, obviously) - lemme go fix that...

 

[EDIT: poll now updated to allow multiple accounts!]

 

 

?? i just made a very similar topic of this subject http://gtaforums.com/topic/727007-fall-is-coming/

 

...exept pc

Heh - saw that, sorry! In fairness, I've been toying with posting this for months, now (but I'm lazy like that!) - that, and I figured it might be good to see the 'before and after' comparison between the current player distribution, and post-re-release.

I think it's an absolute joke the way they released a game on a system that can't handle it and are now going to release it at a higher price than the old gta v. Blatantly obvious the 360 version has been one big beta test and money grab. They've even lied about heists from before the game was even released just so they can use them to sell more on the xbone and ps4. Hands down the WORST developers, 100 times worse than EA. Their games suck balls too when it comes to life span. Over hyped amateur developers that play their community. Go pre order destiny and you'll witness a decent game with a solid development team that'll never f*ck you right in your ass.

I don't give a sh*t about online so I might get it for PC... I can just imagine the singleplayer mods being as mindblowing as skyrim's. I'll wait a LONG time so the price is lowered considerably, or one of my friends will get bored of their copy and give it to me. (They always do). I advise everyone not to buy this game again just for online. Just because it's current gen, Doesn't mean it will be amazing all of a sudden so don't get all hyped only to be scammed.

I'll be transferring to Playstation 4 if it's jammed packed with content not on ps3. I actually decided last night that from now until it comes out on Playstation 4 I will not be f*cking around in free roam. I'll just be doing missions and jobs and making money. My goal is that when it comes out for PS4 I will have a f*ck load and I mean a f*ck load of money.

I currently have GTA V on the Playstation 3. I hope to own a Playstation 4 by the end of this year or early next year and will more than likely buy GTA V again.

On PS3 now, not sure which console I will upgrade to. I like Sony, and was set to buy the PS4 but this game has shown me some features on Xbox that may change my mind. The way chat is always screwed up makes me wish we had party chat on the playstation. The garbage death matches makes me wish we could block user created content like Xbox can. Things to think about, will have to take a long hard look at all the features of the Xbox before I am sure.

I'm on 360 and will be getting a playing station 4 when V is released for it.

My choice is entirely based on number of RL friends that have the console.

I'll be shocked if all my GTAO sh*t transfers over with no problems though.
