GTA V PC possibilities vs. PS4 and Xbox One

Grand Theft Auto 5 is such a good game that it really should release on PC, PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita as well but a formal announcement is yet to arrive from Rockstar. The amount of gamers leaving GTA V behind for a next-gen console would be in the millions and these people alone should make a port worthwhile for Rockstar, although exactly how it’s done and timed with a PC launch is yet to be seen.

We haven’t been short of rumors about GTA V releasing on PS4, Xbox One and PC with leaked listings that seem solid and others that certainly reveal a Photoshop. We have also seen Amazon hinting towards an early 2014 release for GTA V on Xbox One and PS4, although these listings and Amazon customer service statements could be nothing more than date placeholders.

Previously, we touched on the desire for Red Dead Redemption 2 vs. GTA V on next-gen consoles and Product Reviews readers revealed mixed interest with the discussion falling back to the age old PC vs. console debate. Some gamers “need more Red Dead Redemption” in their life, while others feel PC gaming is problematic thanks to developer focus. Another reader added, “I love my gaming PC that was a top spec gaming rig when I purchased it, but the more I use the PC, the more I can see how game developers hurt performance of PCs compared to consoles thanks to their focus. Now I own a PS4, but I wish they would release GTA V on it”.


GTA V PC mods could show real difference – the GTA IV game on PS3 and Xbox 360 was impressive in terms of gameplay and open world, but after looking at graphics on PC using the same game with a graphics mod made some console owners drool.

You can see a screenshot of one such mod in the picture above, which reveals GTA IV using a graphics mod and certainly rivals the graphics seen on GTA V for PS3 and Xbox 360. Imagine what would be possible with GTA V on PC without a graphics mod, then think about PC hardware upgrades being used in 2 years with a graphics mod?

Bottom-line: For now GTA V on PS4 and Xbox One would be amazing in terms of improvements with graphics, although the gameplay and graphics really stepped up a few notches with GTA V on PS3 and Xbox 360 already. The fact that a lot of gamers sold their consoles to purchase an Xbox One or PS4 only adds to the need for GTA V on next-gen consoles, so expect a release at some point in the near future.

How do you think the possibilities for Grand Theft Auto V compare between PC, PS4 and Xbox One?

Rockstar needs to quit being little bitches and release gta v on ps4 already. They should’ve seriously been done did this. It can’t be that hard.


Imagine that big surprise. GTA V will be exclusively released only on PS4 and that xbox3 thing. Why? Cuz they want to sell more of those new consoles, that’s why! No PC version! You want HD ultra HDR supa-sweet GTA V? Buy a new console! Believe that son, this prophecy is coming.


i hope they release it for pc.. now every game is being focused on consoles maybe they do not release for pc because of piracy issues and i guess they earn more from consoles.. they are leaving pc behind… but game is more engaging in pc…


Don’t think it will be out on next gen anytime soon, not until they sort out the ps3 & 360. It is hacked so bad you have guys on level 5 with 1/2 mill super cars and houses, guys putting billion dollar bounties on people guys nearly on level 1000, I don’t about everyone else but it took me nearly 2 months just to get to level 70 and I’m only a casual gamer. R* have been trying to patch the 100’s of glitches but the damage is done. Unless you start from lvl 1 with 0 $ on the… Read more »


Mods are bad. They inevitably lead to mods used for cheating. That’s why there will be no PC release. R* learned their lesson with GTA Online. The cheating is completely out of control, and that’s on a console. Just think what it would the cheating would be like with a PC release. No, R* is more interested in making micro-transactions work so they can please their stockholders and the Wall Street analysts. They no longer give a crap about you.
