GTA V: Will Current Players Upgrade?

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.

  1. I’ll be regetting it at relaunch for Xbone, that way I can finally disconnect my 360Slim permanently. I’ll consider getting it for PC (my platform of preference) in due time, but not in a hurry.

  2. I will since its the only game i play daily since the last year and i have plenty of other games but GTA5 took over and since PS4 doesnt offer any game i really want to play, GTA all the way.

  3. I have become far too spoilt after The Last of Us. I tried to play the game using the 30fps option in the menu. I just cant.

    60fps all the way, even if it means the graphics take a dive down to 720p. I dont care. Give me a smooth frame rate so my eyeballs don’t have to see blur when aiming and camera panning erratically.

  4. I’ll upgrade from Xbox360 to Xbox One as soon as it’s released. However, it would be nice if Xbox360 owners who wish to upgrade to Xbox One get a reduction in cost like the Minecraft deal. The Minecraft upgrade was a no brainer, $5 doesn’t require thought. For GTA5, I would pay $20-30 to upgrade.
