I've been seeing and hearing from the gaming community about how badly some new games run on those systems since around 2010/2011. That, along with the fact that GTAV is advertised as Rockstar's biggest most technically-advanced title to date, raises the question: how is it even possible for GTAV to run on the old consoles well? Rockstar's biggest game coming out on the current gen two months before the new gen?!
How is it possible for the biggest open world Rockstar ever made with crazy advanced tech, new mechanics, graphics, jets and underwater exploration, to run on the consoles where Far Cry 3, Saints Row IV and a myriad of new games have been confirmed to look like crap and dip in the FPS so low that they occasionally turned into slideshows? I mean technically speaking, SR4 doesn't hold a candle to how big and goodlooking GTAV looks. Think about that for a second.
Regardless of next-gen versions or a PC version, this game will release on the current gen and people will buy it. So am I crazy or is the only realistic expectation that GTAV will run absolutely horrendously on the 360 and PS3?
If you're a console owner, what are your realistic expectations for GTAV? Anyone not buying it because they're kinda sure it won't run well?
