GTA 5 won't affect next gen console sales, say industry anal

Your comments on our articles.

"I don't foresee one current generation game impacting the next generation of consoles"

GTA 5's mid-September launch date makes it one of the last big releases for the current generation - publisher Take-Two has rebuffed suggestions that the game will ultimately leap to next-gen. Just two months later, the Xbox One will be unleashed into the wild - but will we be ready for it, or will we be tempted to stick with Los Santos? Industry analysts aren't sure.... read more

I'll be getting both. Just because I will be getting the One doesn't mean that my 360 will be retired any time soon.

PS Any chance of changing the way the forums truncate a headline? Otherwise we'll have the banana and carrot comments again. :mrgreen:

Let us speculate no further. I'm sure FishyGinger will be along presently to dispense his usual witticisms.

Anyway...

I do not believe for a second that there will not be a Xbox One version of GTA5. Probably not at launch but a year or so after. One thing I am wondering about is whether the gameplay trailer really reflects how good things will look on the 360. I think you will have to have a very powerfull PC to pull that off. Or a Xbox One.

But to answer the question this survey was about. I will keep the 360 for a long time. Too many good games that I have not yet played and that will only become cheaper over time...

I'm not some one track minded simpleton ready to jump at ones beck and call. I have at least two tracks, like a scalectrix.

And I'd like to point out again I meant eating the banana. Oral insertion. So you can shove your truncated headlines up your analyst.

Yes, in fairness our scalectrix-like Fishy did say "Holy Mary mother of God, I meant eat the banana you sick bastards". It was Plasma wing who suggested a carrot but it was one of our esteemed moderators who first came up with an interesting analogy. :mrgreen:

In his defense it did make as much sense as the car analogy :lol:

Ah but car analogies are amazing. It's like this one time Morgan Aero 8.

I'm not moving till next gen till possibly this time next year. Too many Xbox 360 games I'm looking forward too. GTA5 is one of them but Dark Souls 2 and Castlevania Lords Of Shadow 2 are on the top of my list.

Well yeah, people are impatient, they're gonna buy the current gen version since it comes out earlier, sure some people will pick it up with their 180 in November, but it's hardly going to be the driving force, if it was a next gen exclusive then yeah.

But at least this article has allowed us to get a lot of jokes about the industry analyst so it was all worth it in the end. :lol:
