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.”

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

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

          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:

            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.

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

            June 12, 2014 at 10:40

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

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

          • Admiral Chief Cyber Commando

            June 12, 2014 at 10:38

            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?

            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.

            June 12, 2014 at 10:55

            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

            June 12, 2014 at 11:03

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

          • Sith JJ

            June 12, 2014 at 11:07

            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.

            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.

          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.

          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?”

            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).

          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.

    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.
