Analysts on GTA 5 and upstaging E3

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterest

Some people believe GTA 5 will make an appearance at E3 2012, at least in mention during the Sony Press Conference, and while this is just fan hearsay we’re seeing analysts making judgments on how GTA 5 could upstage many games due to be showcased at this years event.

We’d welcome any news on the next Grand Theft Auto game and if this means bringing that news one day before E3, then so be it. Michael Pachter is putting his head on the block with this prediction and feels it’s a perfect opportunity for Rockstar, although it wouldn’t be the first time Pachter got something wrong. He also made an October prediction for the GTA 5 release date, and in our opinion he couldn’t be more wrong.

Why would you launch Grand Theft Auto V in October? First of all you could count on the next GTA game topping other games in the crowded launch month, and these include Resident Evil 6, Bioshock Infinite, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and Assassin’s Creed 3. Then we wonder why Rockstar would want to launch GTA 5 right next to Bioshock Infinite, and even if the game could top all others it would certainly stand more chance of record sales in April 2013.

Stealing the show without being at E3 – In our opinion it would be a good move to release more GTA 5 details before E3, and it doesn’t matter if they’re not at the event, because fans want the details and getting them online will shift a lot of focus towards the next GTA rather than other games at E3 2012. Do you think Rockstar are too cool for E3 or should they be at the event?

Our prediction – you can count on more details this year and most likely before E3 2012, although you should count on a release date early next year and most likely in April. Launching GTA 5 this year would be a mistake, and while we can’t wait for the next Grand Theft Auto we’d predict more success with a launch early next year thanks to the crowded October and November months.

Are there enough games for you to be excited about this year already, and would you prefer an early 2013 release for GTA 5?

    GTA5 out ranks any game i can think of. they in a league of there own and if they were to release info now the internet would be buzzing till e3 . im a hardcore GTA fan been playing it since i was 8 and im 23 now, although my only concern is if they putting bullet time, crews bunch of other stuff it may ruin the game for us fans who have been playing it for years, but finger crossed it comes out at the end of the year and i think it will. if GTA5 released around october november it would be the only game everyone will be talking about. and would out sell other best sellers like COD, 

    • Wait gta

       dont believe anything its a fake employee makin up stuff just to make money from reporters

      rockstar knows when d real release date maybe May/October/December/November 2013

  • Grove Street

    PS3 rules, look at LA Noire you needed and i mean needed 3 Disc for the xbox, but the PS3 1 Disc. It is more powerful then the xbox more better looking, and like i said you need 3 Disc for the xbox, so i think GTA V should be a PS3 exclusive because the xbox cannot handle the data like the PS3 can.

    • Two Deep

      PC kicks ps3′s ass all day.

    • Bkyle10

       lol more better looking eh? you can tell your a PS fanboy. Also it doesn’t look better on either console they’re virtually identical and what one lacks they make up for in other areas. Plus if Xbox can handle BTF3, Skyrim, ME3, AC3 and many more I’m sure it’ll be okay with GTA5.

      • Danhouser

         nop ur going to get gta 5 only on ps3 cuss a exclusive

  • Blane19871

    Gta V could be exclusive to PlayStation has been before and I really doubt a realease date next year rockstar wouldn’t care about the crowded release months of October and November. Lets face it if rocksatr realeases gta V this year we may very well see the death of the other video game seriesof that month because al the cod series is doing is tiring it self out. And I believe in true rockstar style they will release info about Gta V they day before E3 and steal all the thunder from the show with a release date this year

    • CockneyJoe

      Gta 5 won’t be exclusive to PS3, as when the first trailer was released, it was on the xbox dashboard.

      • Fuckyoucockneyjoe

         it will be a ps3 exclusive faq

    Rockstar announce games about a year before release so that will mean GTA V will get released about April or May 2013 (I heard May).
    GTA’s are big games and each one in the series get bigger which means more work. I don’t know about you guys but I would like a release date for next year so that the game will be properly finished and not rushed, no bugs and just fun to sit back, relax and play.

    • Sgtribz

      Dude you right . With better and real car and army tank like sr3 has

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stuart-Gammie/100000056987923 Stuart Gammie

    You guys forget, people are already talking about Call of Duty: Black Ops II. It is a big game and big competition, even for a game such as Grand Theft Auto V. The COD series and the GTA series are both up there.
    If anything Rockstar has time on their side because it has been like 3 or 4 years since the last GTA, GTA IV and the episodes (The Lost and Damned and The Ballard of Gay Tony), so Rockstar have got their ‘GTA fans’ on the edge and waiting like you all are. So Rockstar really know what they are doing in terms on marketing.

  • Moejoe69a

    xbox rules. stupid little girl crybaby, what a thing to write Admin kid take it ur a child, i have both xbox and ps3 twice so dont say things u have no clue about, i suggest in future u keep ur trap shut, the last part i put in 1st message was a p**s take as u ps3 freaks keep saying gta v should and will be ps3 exclusive when its clearly not, either way it wouldnt effect me in any way, but with me having both consoles i can upstage my oppinion to everyone. SIMPLE AS THAT!

    • Fuckyouxboxlover

  • Coolbigbox

    all those games that gta 5 is supposed to be competing with are all B grade games, there will be no competition, who in there right mind would buy medal of honour over gta 5. the previous medal of honour sucked balls, i burnt my disc. and those other games only bio shock comes close, but who would buy that game the story is only 10 hours long if that and the multiplayer sucks

  • guest

    grove street you do realise that bluerays just hold more data it doesnt make the graphics any better not to mention that the dev really arnt going to care if it goes on 1 disc of 3

  • the tRuth

    gta sucks balls

    • Officershrute

       Fail.

  • Anthony

    GTA should be released in 2013 April. I really dont want to have to pick and choose which games i want in one month and GTA would probablly be behind Assassins creed 3, Resident Evil and Bioshock sooooooo I really say GTA comes last

    • Guy

      nope Gta would own Assassins creed’s ass

      • Fawkes

        own it like a BOSS

  • Jackal3387

      forget Resident Evil 6, Bioshock Infinite, Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and Assassin’s Creed 3  im not into none of these games to me they are wack forget the other companys its not Rockstar’s foult they make boring titles i think they should release gta 5 A.S.A.P its not like the other companys are doing them a faver this is a compation  its about who sells more and who makes more .

  • JASON

    I would rather gta v come out this year any of those other big releases mentioned
    Gta would own all those push those other games to 2013 and let GTA V have this year

      From your poor grammar, I’m willing to bet my savings that you’re not legally old enough to purchase both games.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Hijolkg Hijol K. Goswami

    The trailer of the game is pretty intense compared to the other Trailers of GTA Series so far. I’m hoping for something old and new in this series, I’m not going to be impatient.

  • Mish

    The game should definately come out soon. I mean Modern Warfare 3 came out AFTER Battlefield and out sold it by a mile, infact it was the biggest entertainment launch ever. So what I’m trying to say is GTA is much better than the competition and sales will not drop as Christmas is also around the corner. So R* get it out anytime soon!

  • Carl Johnson CJ

    -the map is Los Santos with more streets and countryside at least 4x the size of the gta IV map
    -there will be customization
    -gta 5 will let us play as multiple characters
    all I can say is that rockstar has outdone them selves and is now preparing for a October 26,2012 release date, every rockstar fan should be thrilled this games realism will make it be the top release of 2012

    • lovehalo4

      • Carl Johnson CJ

        • atcarl

          wow dis guy is stupid

  • the voice of reason

    GTA V will be coming to all consoles and PC, rockstar would be mad to cut over half their market off from playing what is expected to be a best selling game of all time.

    also theres nothing wrong with the xbox, it still has alot of potential, yes the PS3 has a bit more computing power than the xbox, but the xbox is alot more user friendly and has alot more unique titles than the playstation.

    i say right now there on par with one another. when the next generation of consoles come out then you can argue all you want.

    i just hope the next playstation is alot more easier to work with, programming and coding wise :/
