GTA V is going to have something extra on PlayStation 4

GTAV

Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and yes, even PC in the Southern Hemisphere’s spring. If you’ve had a look at the new PS4 trailer, you can quite clearly see that it’s not some simple port job; the game’s very nearly being retooled – with new textures, new animations and will likely end up looking and running like magic. According to Sony, it’s going to be extra special on PS4.


“I don’t think we announced anything publicly on that, but there will be,” Sony marketing boss John Koller told Kotaku when asked about exclusive content.

“GTA 5 is going to be, I think, a title we’ll talk about more in the weeks and months to come, but GTA 5 and the GTA franchise is something that will be something very special on PlayStation.”

Grand Theft Auto , Sony feels, started with them, and that GTA is at home on the PlayStation.

“GTA 5 is a title that did extremely well on the PlayStation 3. In fact, the index rate — the index rate is the amount of people who purchase one platform or the other relative to the install base — it swung well in PlayStation’s favour for GTA 5, a lot of it because of the partnership we had with Rockstar,” Koller said.

“We would expect that to happen here, too. GTA is a PlayStation franchise. It started with us. We really feel strongly that it belongs as a key platform driver for us.”

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
  • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

    Finally PC love, wonder how crap the port will be

    • GodGamerDerp

      Can’t be any worse than how it runs on PS3 or 360.

      • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

        Still, controls can and will most likely NOT be mouse and keyboard friendly

        • Brenz

          Its not really the type of game to be played with a keyboard and mouse I think.
          Playing GTA with keyboard and mouse is like playing an RTS with a controller:

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            I really hope you are not serious dude

          • Brenz

            Im serious from a console gamer point of view, I will always prefer control over keyboard and mouse cos its what Ive mostly used, except for specific games. But when it comes to action and driving, control is way more comfortable for me.

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            I was referring to your comment about playing GTA with KB+MS is like playing RTS with controller

          • Brenz

            Exactly, both instances = shit, in my opinion.

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            But the development is done kak for the MS+KB, whereas its not physically recommended for RTS

          • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

            GTA is infinitely better with a controller. just that sort of game.

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            It should not be BETTER with any preferred input, it should perform well on any input device the end user chooses (within reason of course, trackball won’t cut the cake I’m afraid)

            And what makes it “just that sort of game” then?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I believe people who say you have to use a controller for a game over a KB&M the same way I believe people who say you have to eat sushi with chopsticks. I’ll use a knife & fork & if you don’t like it try stopping me with your little twigs.

          • Sith JJ

            There is no HAVE TO. BUT!! That being said, playing a racing game with a KB is pretty much like driving a car on the highway with an on/off button for petrol and brake.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I wouldn’t know. I’ve never played a vroom vroom game with anything but a kb&m.

          • Sith JJ

            Then again. To contradict myself a bit. If you don’t really take your racing games seriously, then there’s nothing wrong with playing on a KB.
            I go full psycho.

          • Mark Treloar

            Keyboard and mouse? You mean the superior controller that gives us better reaction time and aim?

          • FSR

            I’m with you man! There are certain genres that I will always play with a controller.

      • Trebzz

        You realise those PS3/Xbox people can spoil the shit out of this game for PC people right?

    • Rinceinantici

      My bro was playing Black Flag, and I have to say the port controls on the PC are also rather terrible.

      • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

        Yeah, the AC games have weird controls. As if the dev for the KB and MS input was an afterthought. Terrible QC that

        • Rinceinantici

          Yeah, he ends up spending most of his time sitting on top of chests, instead of, you know, opening the fucking things.

          • https://twitter.com/andreferhelst Aries

            Had the same problem, had all the others on ps3 and black flag on pc and it was weird, so just plugged my ps3 control in a it made it abit better

        • Brenz

          I see your weird controls and raise you fucking shit annoying controls

          • Milesh Bhana

            for console ports, like AC/GTA you pretty much have to use a gamepad if you’re playing on PC.

            360 controller + wireless receiver probably the best option imo.

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Then you’re doing it amazingly wrong ;P I’ve had no problems in AC with KB&M. But then again I play Dark Souls that way too.

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            Yeah, you are the exception to the rule

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I AM AMAZINGLY SPECIAL!

          • Sith JJ

            Of course you are.
            *pats on back

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            A
            MA
            ZING

        • Sith JJ

          Very

        • Mossel

          It’s like “David” came in on Tuesday to do the controlls for PC.

      • geelslang

        Did he use a controller or keyboard /mouse?

        • Rinceinantici

          Keyboard. So shame :)

      • FoxOneZA

        You don’t play console ports without a controller. Only FPS games need KB/mouse.

    • Hammersteyn

      Will this be a day one purchase sir? Or are we gonna wait for the Steam specials

      • Rinceinantici

        LOL what do you think…

        • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

          Well it ain’t day one…

      • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

        I still need to get through GTA4….actually still have to start GTA4

        • Hammersteyn

          O_o

        • https://twitter.com/andreferhelst Aries

          i got it on cheap with expansions on psn last year, but got bored and didnt finish it

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            Yeah, got the full pack a year or more ago, never started it though :/

          • Sith JJ

            Mod it!!!

        • JustAnotherGamer

          don’t bother, GTA4 was pretty bad.

        • Dutch Matrix

          If by the time GTA 5 is released, and you have not played GTA 4 yet, just forget about GTA 4.
          Seriously, I will refund you your R100.00 for GTA 4. GTA 4 was a good-ish game. But GTA 5, as much as I love to call it mediocre, is actually anything but. If only for Trevor. And he does not go every five minutes “Hey Nico want to go bowling?”

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            Hmmm, R100 to NOT play GTA4….SOLD

          • Dutch Matrix

            OK. On GTA 5′s PC’s release date, I will send you R100.00. Mark my words!

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            Words, MARKED!

          • Tauriq Moosa

            HEY DUTCH YOU WANT TO GO BOWLING WITH YOUR COUSIN?

          • Dutch Matrix

            No. I dumped the bitch when I caught her with the Goat!

          • Sith JJ

            This sounds like a family thing..

        • Sith JJ

          Rather play Sleeping Dogs for now. GTA IV feels epically old when you play it now.

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            I’ve not jammed SD, or GTA4, so maybe start 4 and then SD.

            AFTER BLOOD DRAGON of course!

          • Sith JJ

            Still have to put Uplay back on my pc, but also want to get back into Sergeant Power Rex Colt.
            Sleeping Dogs is seriously brilliant. I unfortunately played it and Saints Row 3 before GTA IV, and that made me hate GTA IV because it just felt soooo old (and not in the KOTOR, cool kind of, old).

        • Tauriq Moosa

          No you don’t. While great at the time, it is really showing its age. If you have to play something from that era of GTA, Episodes is better than GTA. I loved the characters and the story, but the game itself is now very very meh. But then I feel that way about GTA V now.

    • Sith JJ

      Probably not too great. But alas, I shall see you there my dear Admiral. Where we can bother people

      • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

        Bother you say?

        • Sith JJ

          I tend to bother people even when I’m trying really hard to help them in MP games.

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            Speaking of, when are we doing some co-op madness again?

          • Sith JJ

            The weekend?
            Just let me know the game and the time

  • oVgeeeeee Comet Drop

    1080P ? :P

    • FoxOneZA

      15fps?

      • JustAnotherGamer

        that’s the xbox one. 700P and 12fps

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    lol yes okay Sony. GTA started with you. *pat pat* Thanks for all the amazing memories you provided.

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      I’d say that when it comes to the open world GTA, yeah..it did. GTA III was released on PS2 about 8 months before it hit PC. The top-dpwn originals hit Pc before playstation though.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        That’s what I was getting at in my pedantic, yet amazing, way ;)

        • Rinceinantici

          LULZ

    • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX The Fires of Suzaku Burns!!

      I don’t think he meant in that particular way. The very first game was on PS, and every subsequent game thereafter. It started on PC yes, but chronologically it started on PS as well

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I know, but amazingly, I actually read up on Wikipedia before being a pedantic dick about it lol

        • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX The Fires of Suzaku Burns!!

          You don’t need to read up on how to be a pedantic dick, you got that covered :P JK You’re not a dick, you’re Daddy Cool :)

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

          • Sith JJ

            I always had him pinned for “Daddy Above Average”
            “cool” is maybe pushing it a bit

          • Rinceinantici

            HAHAHAHHAHAHA! DING DING DING!

    • Hammersteyn

      Why don’t you just buy a console already?

      • Rinceinantici

        lol

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        WTA(mazed)F. Yesterday it was Intel, now you’re telling me to buy a console. :(

        • Hammersteyn

          But this way you don’t have to wait like a farm worker waits for the doctor at the state hospital for titles from Rockstar

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            But I’m not really waiting for it and if it never came to PC I wouldn’t worry about it. I’m not even going to buy it on release. You can see my Steam list, I’ve got tons of amazing games to play.

          • Hammersteyn

            Then I mistook your need for GTAV :)

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            Exactly, I have enough games for about 3 years tbh

  • oOqUiS

    Can’t wait to c the car damage and physics.

    • Ryanza

      I don’t think what is going to change from what we got on consoles, disappointment.

  • Rinceinantici

    I wonder how many people who have already played the first iteration of GTAV will buy it though?

    • Hammersteyn

      Not me, will wait for a GOTY edition like they did with GTAIV. The one with Gay Tony and the biker gang,

      • FoxOneZA

        GOTY for R199. I miss those days. Now you pay per pixel.

        • Hammersteyn

          LOL

  • oVgeeeeee Comet Drop
  • Milesh Bhana

    GTA5 was one of the reasons I wasn’t all that excited for next-gen consoles. I know it’s obvious if you think about it, but nothing that’s currently out comes close to the scale and detail of GTA5. It really pushed the 360 to it’s limits and gave us a taste of what next gen could be like.

  • Sith JJ

    There is no way in hell that I’ll pay full price for an old game. Will wait for Steam special. But get it, I certainly will.

  • Mark Treloar

    Sorry but how exactly did GTA start with PlayStation?

  • http://Nathan-news.com Rihan

    GTA5 è un capolavoro assurdo e penso che abbiano fatto bene a farlo anche su Ps4
