In case you missed the GTA V train yesterday, you should know that Rockstar miraculously revealed two official screenshots for the game. This is after waiting more than eight months when the outfit revealed V’s first trailer.
As expected, hundreds of articles have spawned on the web analyzing the pictures, but the thing that caught our attention are these opinion pieces stating the said game is made for “next-gen” console, in particular, those two ghost devices from Sony and Microsoft.
While we’re not here to debate on which is which, it’s important to gather data first before doing some ‘theorycrafting’. That being said, it’s most certain that GTA V will be revealed during Q4 of 2012 until Q2 2013 basing from Take Two’s Financial Call confirming the company expects their stock to be ‘pushed’ for more than 2 bucks between those period.
GTA V Will Debut on Xbox 360 and PS3
As much as we want to indulge the obsession of the crowd, analyzing those two screenshots into giant proportions. The assumptions about the game debuting on next-gen consoles doesn’t match.
In fact, if you’ll look at the pictures again, and view the first trailer of GTA V in 720p closely (like the photo we’ve taken above); it’s noticeable that both screens matches with one another, giving no credence the quality of the two newer pics are for next-gen consoles.
Also, it’s important to mention that Xbox 720 and PS4 are only expected to arrive by holidays of 2013, at least, making it illogical to see the mogul sandbox game debuting by that time considering it will be released earlier if you’ll check the points we raised above.
Right now, fans are just happy that Rockstar Games can pull out such extensive display of graphics, even some of its elements are hindered by X360 / PS3′s old hardware.
For the latest buzz, let’s see if Rockstar will give another trail of breadcrumb during Gamescom 2012. Fingers crossed!
