GTA 5: PS4 release possibility splits opinions
While many Grand Theft Auto fans are still a bit down over the delay of the GTA 5 release date on the PS3, when you consider the estimated $138m development cost, it’s worth contemplating whether they will eventually launch GTA 5 on the PS4.
According to industry analyst Michael Pachter, the likelihood of gamers being able to experience GTA 5 on PS4 is one that could be apparent, although there is not much chance of this coming at the launch of the next-gen console. In an article on CVG, they talk about the various ways this upcoming console could improve the experience of GTA 5, even though they do mention the game hasn’t been confirmed on the PS4 yet.
While we feel that both Sony and Microsoft will welcome a game like GTA 5 on their new systems, the PS4, Xbox 720 and PC would be ideal platforms to develop this game, while the wait for GTA IV on the PC could be apparent with GTA 5 releasing on the aforementioned platforms sometime after its initial release.
The delayed release has amounted in plenty of discussions about next-gen development although we are still waiting for some official news on this. Looking at different ways the PS4 could transform this upcoming title, it seems that the reward for this could be massive including the addition of DLC.
CVG show some insightful videos on their site which highlight the advantages of GTA 5 on the PS4 in 1080p at 60FPS, as well as the draw distance, the share button, the PS4 touch pad, the motion control and light bar and the convenience of no loading times. Another thing is the opportunity to link up with the PS Vita with cross-platform play and how much easier the online and multiplayer features will work.
When you consider the advantages of GTA 5 on the PS4 as well as PC and Xbox 720, you can’t help think how dominant this game would be on all platforms, so are you excited about the possibility of a GTA 5 release date for the PS4? Or do you think we will have to wait for another 6 months or so like we did with the PC version of GTA IV?
