GTA V, Skyrim insistence for PS4 port

How long are you willing to put up with the ongoing silence from Bethesda and Rockstar with regards to a GTA V PS4 port and Skyrim PS4 port? Rockstar are perhaps the biggest sinner with their lack of communication regarding GTA V for PC, but are we slowly getting warmer towards both games finally coming out on Sony’s next-gen PS4 in 2014?

There has been increased speculation that the main reason for Rockstar’s silence on the PC version of GTA V, is solely due to their increased workload in delivering a next-gen console port on PS4 and Xbox One at the same time.

We have seen from the introduction of GTA V cash cards that business is everything to Rockstar, so it would be perfect from a business point of view to bring out the game on PS4 as well, to maximize sales even further with interest perhaps starting to fall with the console versions.

With regards to Skyrim, Bethesda are also in a similar position. The announcement of Skyrim for PS4, complete with all of the DLC released so far would almost feel like a new game for many gamers.

Imagine if Bethesda has been working on this over the last few months, specifically upgrading those graphics to make it a worthy port rather than a rush job?

Are you ready to play Skyrim with PS4 graphics?
Are you ready to play Skyrim with PS4 graphics?

Just look over the shoulder at the Definitive version of Tomb Raider to see how important these next-gen ports are to some publishers – it’s big money to be made either way you look at it.

Would you be happy to spend another $50 on buying essentially the same game, but on new hardware? The big question to us is whether they will just be basic ports, or if they will be more akin to that of a remaster, with Rockstar and Bethesda actually taking time to redo the graphics completely.

If they do that, then we have a feeling that most won’t mind paying again – especially if it comes included with all respective DLC on top. Anything other than that though and questions may be raised from fans who say that the upgrade isn’t worth paying full price for again.

With both Skyrim and GTA V expected on PS4 at some point in the future, let us know what you would like to see to justify paying for the game again. What would you accept from Rockstar and Bethesda?

i wouldn’t hesitate to buy skyrim for the ps4. The elder scrolls online feels too much like wow. i don’t want that, but I will pay full price for a game that is a massive adventure that my ps3 was never able to handle. It failed on ps3, so they should release it for ps4.
Or sony should make the ps4 capable of playing pc games

Well considering Skyrim was the best game I ever played, I have the money ready and waiting. Elder Scrolls Online is just a joke.

I have money waiting for GTAV, Far Cry 3 and The Last Of Us. All classics that would be a real joy to play again on PS4 in super HD with silky smooth movement.

I sold my old ps3 for some stupid reason 1 year ago. Now, I was about to buy a ps4…. But since Skyrim on ps4 is not an option (streaming is experimental, and my game files in the cloud wouldn’t be run on ps4 anyway), I think I will buy another ps3 instead, so I’d be able to play Elder Scrolls V. Its also about Uncharted, Infamous, and several other epic games that I didn’t play, but mainly Skyrim. One year later I would buy a ps4, with a wider variety of titles, probably lower price, and who knows? Maybe… Read more »

Hell yeah, I’d get Skyrim again. My kids lost my PS3 disk for it, and I’m mulling whether to get a PS4 or build a gaming PC. There are not a lot of upcoming releases incoming for PS4 to justify it for me, but I’m waiting for news before I commit.

And it would be nice to see a Gta 5 port seeing as I just bought it and couldn’t take it to my next gen console. I wouldn’t mind buyin this game again either as long as it came with the Dlc.

Same here! Would gladly pay full price for a revamped Skyrim with Dlc included. I actually would go as far to say I need it!

While it could happen, I would highly doubt that there will be a PS4 version of Skyrim. Bethesda has never done that before, release an older game that appeared on a old system for a newer system. Skyrim came out in Fall of 2011, and they are close to releasing a Fallout 4 sometime this year. Not to mention that The Elder Scrolls Online will be coming out on PS4 in June, and I would think they would want all their marketing and customer attention on that game, and releasing Skyrim on PS4 would compete with that. The PC version… Read more »
