Alright peeps, you might wanna be sitting down for this next bit of info:

According to a guy working at my local video game retail store that shall not be named, GTAV will launch alongside next gen consoles as a launch title. Yep. You read that right!

Also, there will actually be TWO PS4 packages, the regular 399 one and another model that should come with a larger harddrive, for a yet unknown price!

Taje this will a grain of salt? Or not? the choice is yours!

Thank God! Was so bummed when my 360 broke and wouldn't be able to play GTAV. Glad I didn't throw down the money to buy a new 360. November 15 needs to come faster.

Some guy who works at Gamestop is known to be a reliable source.

@nilazz: Yeah but social media reps have gotten shit wrong before.

If they announce next-gen they better announce it soon, I still think that they're not gonna do it like that, what with them talking about how they make universes on a per-console basis and all that jazz.

Either way I'm still gonna pick it up on the PS3, not gonna get a console just for one game and I don't have that much money anyway.

It does worry me if this is true though, cause if it is then they've had to have been working on it for awhile, and who knows what that means in terms of current-gen performance. On the other hand, they might focus on the platform with the greatest install base, who knows.

Being an asshole working behind the counter of a Gamestop hardly makes you an "industry insider."

Phew.

I was sweating when I opened this thread as I was expecting this to be a massive spoiler dump. Anywhoo there's already a thread discussing this rumour. It's... the one right below this one.

Yeah that shit's been making me nervous, not just when looking at GTAV stuff but also just on the internet in general.

Except GameStop is currently doing their big E3-esque event thing in Vegas, and all store managers get to go. RockStar, for some fucking reason, seems to love GameStop and has a history of doing closed doors events for the management. I used to work at a GameStop, and I remember hearing details about Max Payne 3 before it was really shown to the public. RoskStar also gives managers games. Sony is even giving mangers a PS4, and they already gave them Vitas. Point is, it's not entirely unbelievable that this information came out this way, if it's true.
