    Thumbs up Why Grand Theft Auto V is the biggest threat to PS4 and Xbox One

    UK retailers have warned that consumers may hold-off buying PS4 or Xbox One in order to play GTA V.The strong current-gen line-up this year will mean the next-gen transition will be slower than before, experts say. Especially as Xbox One and PS4 are not backwards compatible.

    And games bosses have told MCV they feel there’s a lack of exclusive PS4 and Xbox One content, with many of the big next-gen games also coming to PS3 and Xbox 360.
    “The core gamers will be out in force at launch,” said one high ranking retail boss. “But after that it’s going to be hard convincing consumers to spend £350 to £430 on a new console as many of the best games will be available on machines they already own. That’s made even more complicated when you consider that games like GTA V, Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Gran Turismo 6 are only available on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3.”

    Games that are releasing across generations this Christmas include Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed IV, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4, and that trend will continue next year with Titanfall, Thief, Destiny, Metal Gear Solid V and The Evil Within. In fact, EA exec Patrick Söderlund said last month he expects cross-gen games to continue for up to two years.

    “I think there will be a ‘wait and see how much this affects me’ attitude to the next-gen from gamers,”said Dixons PC games buyer Simon Urquhart.
    “If they aren’t seeing an immediate difference in the server populations and gameplay features, then it’ll be tough to justify the expense. Killer apps like Halo and God of War are always tipping points for owners of legacy consoles and until dates on those are released, gamers will be patient – especially if they have a PC and an Xbox 360.

    I'm definitely holding off. There just aren't enough games that interest me right now to make me want to move on. Besides, they probably forgot one of the biggest games coming out, at least IMO, Diablo 3. I'm not a PC gamer so I'm looking forward to it. I know it's coming to the One and PS4, but it should be a big enough draw to keep many gamers in this gen of consoles.

    I'll tell you this:

    The Last Of Us
    GTA V
    GT6
    Beyond: Two Souls

    Will indeed be impressive. Anyone picking up a PS3 right now ($199au on sale + game) is in for a treat, but these people are not the same that will spend $549au on a PS4.

    The hardcore will most likely set aside monies for all those games plus a PS4. Like me

    I'm hoping to stretch this gen out until the first price drop on the new consoles.

    Totally agree with this article. I mean GTA looks better than anything we've seen for PS4 and XBone (I don't mean graphically).

    If GTA5 is as good as it looks then I expect records to be broken left, right and centre... Most expensive game? Most copies sold? Highest rated? Most money made from a video game?

    If I was at microsoft, I would be throwing money at Rockstar to port this to the xBone. I can't think of a better system seller, even if it is 18 Rated.
