Rockstar made a mistake by making GTA V a current gen game

28 replies 434 views Edited Sep 14, 2013

Becuase some people trade in their old console for the new one. Also I think Current Gen will eventually die down 3-4 Years from now. Plus I do not have a PS3 or Xbox 360 so if it is not released for PS4 or PC that means no buy. Honestly I hate rockstar for not making it a Next Gen Title

A lot of people kept their PS3s so they can do a data transfer when they get their PS4.

Not to mention doing a trade in can give you a very low price if you're doing a bundle also.

While some people may trade in their current consoles for next-gen, I guarantee you the install base for current gen will be far greater than next-gen for at least a couple years. That means a bigger potential market for Rockstar, which results in a bigger potential for sales.

 

So seems like they were smart.

One of the dumbest posts I have ever seen.................current gen has a 160 million install base....................It will sell like crazy, it would not sell near as much on brand new consoles. Also, in a few years time when they get time to loearn the new hardware imagine how amazing GTA 6 will be?

 

How is it a mistake OP, because you want it? How is it a mistake for rockstar? They are a company and will make million more launching on current gen. Did you see the game? The graphics look amazing even for old consoles.

 

GT6 on the other hand...........................................Was a major mistake by Sony, as selling fmore PS4's more important then GT6 sales. GT is sony's biggest system selling franchise.

This^ I don't know how big of a sim racing game group you guys have over here, but I know over at xbox Forza was BIG. I was looking for a sim racing game to start out on with PS4 like I did with Forza and the 360 (Drive club doesn't look like it will cut it) but I guess I'll have to wait 2 years (or more seeing how GT has a habit of being delayed) for the next GT sim racing game... I can't believe that they are not launching a new game from one of their biggest selling franchises with the PS4 in GT.

Well said.  The financial losses Rockstar would have to take on by completely re-coding everything so late into the development cycle, and selling the game to an install base of  nowhere near the current gen systems, would be incredible.

 

Porting a game isn't simply just a push of a button.  Never has been, and never will be.
