Rumour: GTA V outed on Next-Gen? What??

I can't even figure out where this originated from. I first saw this from HipHopGamer, and he just wrote some shit. With a video of him talking that goes nowhere. So I had to look it up, and I haven't found Any American sites talking about this.

EGM NOW: Hip-Hop Gamer: GTA5 Is Coming To PS4, Also Rumored Exclusive PS Vita Story Extension

But what happened was that: European online-retailer Cool Shop, has a listing with an Xbox One version you can order. I did read about the PS4 release date, but where the fuck is HHG getting this fucking PS Vita version news? I'll go and look a little later.

Attack of The Fanboy: Retailer lists GTA V for Xbox One

A Danish retailer has listed an Xbox One version of Grand Theft Auto V on their products pages for pre-order, claiming that an “Expected release will be announced later”. As for the timing of this announcement, “We are waiting for the announcement of the release date, you can pre-order now, we will send the goods as soon as it comes,” says the retail listing.

Ohf. Auhhm?. What the fuck? Still what the fuck, what the fuck about that PS Vita version? If anything, I'd bet it'd fall into the GTA V storyline, and not follow up the Chinatown Wars story. I don't think it would really be 3D either. 2D is a solid choice. Hustling to the max, CW style all up in Los Santos, sounds pretty fucking nice..

Oh and yo, PC. Dope.

It wouldn't be all that surprising for there to be a next-gen build of GTA V, but damn, those seem like some pretty shaky sources.

I wouldn't be surprised to see next gen versions of that game, calling bullshit on the PS Vita one. The more important thing here is eventually hearing about that PC version.

Coolshop is just doing what every other person with a website like that would do.
Speculate. They also refund all the money if what you pre-ordered turns out to never happen.

And then the media of course just does what it does best as well and goes nuts like it's some new thing.

there might be next-gen version, but its absolutely for current gen ones as well. they've been taking preorders for ages.

I'm pretty sure they said somewhere that there wasn't going to be a better version (I.e. next-gen) released. I's totally possible though. I'm trying to remember where I seen that though. Maybe game informer? I'll try to fing it. If anyone else finds it first, feel free to post it since I'm doing this on my tablet.

Edit: I found the link but my tablet doesn't let me hyperlink it, but here it is in all it's unclickable glory.

I dunno Rockstar doesn't generally develop cross gen games, this would be a first otherwise. Something would surely have to be announced at E3 if any of that is true.

I don't believe Euro retail listings about anything, ever. Didn't we learn anything from a decade of Chinese Democracy release dates?

GTA5 on the new consoles seems like a no-brainer. I doubt that coolshop.dk has the hot scoops though.

For the love of God, if there is going to be a PC version, please let it be a better port than GTA:IV

I'd love for this to happen but like others have said the sources aren't all that credible.

Yo, my uncle that works at Nintendo told me that GTA V is going to be on WiiU you guys.

I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of games coming out later this year are cross gen.

The article writes itself. "Sources Say GTA V Will Be Released On WiiU"

Max Payne 3 is enough assurance for me that Rockstar's new engine is in sweet love with the PC

@starfoxa: Now this is awkward cos my uncle's mate Gary knows this dude who cleans the Rockstar North office and he says that the office is preparing for a arcade cabinet release.

Well if it's coming straight from YouTube star HipHopGamer..

@connerthekewlkid: The game was completely uncompressed with 2K textures, so I'm not surprised.

That's only a couple thousand gigs more than the standard high end game size! Max Payne 3 is part of the future after all.

Games are only going to get bigger as consoles move onto Blu-Ray. GET USED TO IT.
