GTA 5: Valid points
When Rockstar finally announced that they were working on Grand Theft Auto V, we finally had something to look forward too. Okay, there is a huge choice of games available, but none that offers the freedom like GTA V will do – well apart from Skyrim that is. There has been a huge amount of discussions over the past week or so concerning the upcoming title, all of which are valid points.
On a number of occasions we have made reference to the fact that GTA 5 might not release in 2012 like suggested and instead wait until the PS4 or Xbox 720 (aka Ten, Loop). However, 360 Magazine has thrown something into the mix by saying that the release of this new game from Rockstar could actually delay the next-gen consoles.
There’s no denying that Grand Theft Auto V will aim to become the pinnacle of gaming, and while Skyrim fans might disagree with it, it’s hard to argue. The Elder Scrolls V is a great game, but when it comes down to it, it’s a game more at home on the PC.
However, they also look at the fact that a game like GTA V needs to be on a next-gen console, because of what the game represents to people. You can see both points of view here, but in the end we believe that the next GTA needs to be the best that Rockstar can offer, and if that means waiting another year for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox 720 or whatever it will be called, then it’s worth the wait.
So we know that Grand Theft Auto V will be a much bigger game, but it’s hard to say if it will be better graphically. We had high hopes for Skyrim, but the graphics is a huge issue for us. Granted you forget about them once you get into the game, but to truly appreciate the game, then it has to be on a PC.
360 Magazine concludes that although it’s a nice thought to see GTA 5 on a next-gen console, Rockstar is not in the habit of launching a new game the moment a new console comes to market. So this would mean that the new game would be released in 2012, maybe on May 24th for the Xbox 360 and the PS3.
