Many players are looking forward to the release of GTA V on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Some are newcomers who never got to play the original. Others are current players who want to replay the game with better graphics, new features, and more. There are even bonuses for players who are upgrading from the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
But how many will actually upgrade, really? We swung by Reddit and also consulted some GTA BOOM regulars to get a feeling for the situation. Following are the results:
Some players can’t justify spending money on a remastered version of a game they’ve already played; while many are passing on the PS4 and Xbox One versions to hold out for the PC release in early 2015, either for the mods or to access GTA Online without paying for a service like PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold.
On the other hand, there are players who love GTA V so much, they aren’t just getting the PS4 or Xbox One version, but both! Most GTA V players who have one of the newer consoles seem interested in picking up a copy of the game for it, at least when the price goes down.
What about you? Will you be upgrading to a new version of GTA V? Is the PC version more appealing because of the potential for mods, or less appealing because of the delay? PS3 players, is the PlayStation Plus requirement for online gameplay on the PS4 a deterrent for you? Chime in with all of your thoughts in the comments below.
