Is GTA V coming to PS4 before Xbox One?

Around this time last year nearly everyone everywhere was busy playing Grand Theft Auto V. Since then, Rockstar has been working very hard to get the game looking brand new on current-gen consoles, with the remastered GTA V launching in little over a month. Or, if you’re on PS4, even sooner.

It seems like GTA V could possibly launch on PS4 a whole two weeks before the Xbox One, according to a leak that also revealed the game’s install size. While GTA V was up on PSN yesterday, German website GamePlan managed to lock down a pre-order before Sony took the listing down. The game still appears in their download queue, and curious features a release date that is earlier than Rockstar’s official one.

According to the download queue, GTA V will unlock on PS4 on November 4th, which is around two weeks before the confirmed November 18th launch. This could mean that the open-world title will be a very brief timed exclusive on Sony’s console, which would definitely be a pleasant surprise.

The pre-order also seems to have revealed some exclusive pre-order content for the PS4. Along with the GTA Online cash bonus, there seems to be a few other multiplayer items available for download if you splash some cash down early. What those items are exactly, I’m not too sure. I’m also not too sure who is still playing GTA Online, since Heists are still not there.

Take it all with a pinch of salt though. The pre-order listing was an accident, so the launch date could be a small glitch that still hasn’t been seen by Sony. If it isn’t, and you have the choice between the two versions, then it seems like PS4 is the way to go. Otherwise, GTA V launches on November 18th, with the PC port coming January 27th next year.

    Off topic:

    This weekend is d-day for me, I need to decide on PS4 or the Xbox One. Now they are the same price and The Division will come out on both consoles next year. (The game I really want) My friends have done the worst thing to me, they split. So asking them won’t help as they will only compliment the thing they bought. WTF do I buy???

    (No, I’m not going the PC route, I like console gaming)

    • CAE9872

      Hmmm interesting choice – I have both so can only give some pointers (I am NOT a PC gamer either):

      PS4
      – sleek box.
      – great controller compared to PS3.
      – interface is good BUT when you have lots of games loaded it becomes a bit of a mess to find things; and no you cannot sort them either!!!.
      – only certain unique games available => Bloodborne, Uncharted, Driveclub, Gran Turismo (one day), Infamous, etc

      Xbox One
      – MUCH smaller than you may have been led to believe; marginally wider than a PS4; but built to last.
      – controller is good but I am in two minds about the vibrating triggers for now
      – the Live store is NOT great; certainly not as intuitive as the Xbox 360’s store
      – if you hate Windows 8 you will not enjoy its tiles approach
      – and again only certain games available – Halo, Forza games, Sunset Overdrive, Titanfall (available at Kalahari!!!), etc

      In truth I don’t think either is better than the other. If you like the social side of your gaming, go with what your friends have.

      Seeing as PS4 released a year before Xbox One in SA, chances are you going to find more people with a PS4 naturally.

      Any other questions = fire away…happy to assist.

      Oh and add me on either one you get – ID for both is CAE9872.

        That does help, thx. I’ve been sitting with this for some time now and can’t make a damn decision. Don’t have the cash to do both, one or the other. Games I’m not worried about, both consoles will have their selling points and the best games are multi-platform (usually). Every time I lean to the Xbox side I remember my 1st console. The 360. After one year, ring of death. Buy another, error E74. Had my PS3 for 4 years and not a single problem. (Until it got stolen a week ago.)

        Gonna end up flipping a coin…

        • CAE9872

          I am a collector hence bought both – I just couldn’t resist. My advice if I could only buy one console = PS4. Has great selection of games, can walk into shops and easily buy most of them (Xbox One now too obviously), but just are more people around that have a PS4 to play against.

          Just factor in the extra R750 for PS+ which you need if you want online gaming – but this is offset by the 2 games you get a month on PS4 (and 2 each on Vita and PS3).

          I think the best advice as CAE9872 said, is to buy the console that your friends have… you don’t want to be “that” lonely guy who stalks peeps on Gaming forums.

          • Marcus

            HAHAHA too late for me man. That would have been my move, but my friends went both ways. The split: PS3 – 30%, PS4 – 38% and Xbox One – 32%. Now I’m not going to replace my PS3 so the choice needs to be made… And I think I have made it… PS4. Thx for the great advice.

      Its simple really.
      One machine has The Last of Us and the other does not.

      Those 200 game of the year awards are well justified.
