GTA V online cross-platform potential

There’s a growing desire among gamers to see Grand Theft Auto V release on PS4 and Xbox One, as only a GTA Online version, rather than a fully fledged GTA V standalone game for the new consoles. Some feel this could also open up the Xbox One and PS4 to playing friends on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC, even though seasoned gamers know the reality is Microsoft don’t allow Sony players to connect with Xbox Live users.

GTA V Online potential – those of you that play GTA V online might feel this area of the game is totally separate to the offline version, so with this in-mind it seems that the multiplayer side of the game could have a lot more to offer than its single player mode. GTA V’s Online mode brings new DLC just like the single player game, and the latest content came in the form of a Business update that delivered new cars like the Albany Alpha, Dinka Jester, and Grotti Turismo R.

It is worth noting each update to Grand Theft Auto Online brings both new content and bug fixes. The last patch for GTA V was 1.11, which delivered fixes to making money glitches and other bugs, although some gamers want to see a lot more with the GTA V 1.12 update and also particular DLC like Heists. We should also note that being able to own more garages in GTA Online is also very important, so at least a second garage / property is needed in the multiplayer game.

Would you like to see the PS4 and Xbox One receive GTA V as an online only game? Do you feel this part of the game has a lot more potential?

Personally, we’d love to see the full GTA V port on Xbox One and PS4, but if this looks unlikely within the next year, then an online only game would be much better than nothing. Considering everything is stored in the cloud, this should be possible without a lot of effort and considering millions of PS4/Xbox One’s have been sold, I’d expect sales to make it worthwhile and maybe even help people upgrade to the new generation of consoles.

GTA V online cross-platform – it is clear Microsoft would have a hard time letting PS4/PS3 gamers connect with Xbox Live players, but why shouldn’t it be possible to play GTA V Online with PS3 owners while playing on the PS4? The same could be said for Xbox One and Xbox 360, so this type of cross-platform gaming should happen in our opinion and would help drive up unit sales of the new consoles.

Leave a comment below detailing what potential you see in GTA Online for PC and all consoles, although we’d also love to hear your thoughts on any type of cross-platform potential with Grand Theft Auto. It is fair to say PC owners need the full GTA V game, but there’s so much PS4 and Xbox One owners could enjoy with an “Online Only” version. Heists, various DLC/online updates, online stock market, property, and add-ons like cycling, vehicles, and clothing.

I don’t give a flying f*** about gta v single player. I most definitely think that it should be on the xbox one. I think its obvious.

Xbox and Playstation cross play may not happen however I can’t see any reason why Pc and ps3/ps4 cross play shouldn’t happen.

They just need to focus on one thing and give their fans what they want now.. Which is hiests and new and more propertys to own. They can’t even do this so maybe after they accomplish this goal we can talk mulit-platform.

People are craving cross-platform play not only for GTA V but for lots of games with online play. Rockstar should capitalize on it before someone else does. Also, there should be an option to buy a second property. I’m a PS3 player and i wish i could play with some Xbox and Xbox One users. Please Rockstar, make it cross-platform

Rockstar started it all on PC, without the support of PC players, GTA series wouldn’t even exist. PC players deserve a full, decent version of GTA V.
Shame on you Rockstar, for forgetting your PC root.

I dont have a ps3 or 360, and if i want to buy a console its gonna be next gen and I don’t wanna purchase both PS3 and PS4 to play the full game . I love singleplayer as much as online . (same goes for xbox) . what I really want is GTA V on pc, not a poor port. a complete experience without issues .
