GTA 5 Writer: Best Console Games Come At The End Of Its Lifecycle

Rockstar has decided not to release GTA 5 on next gen consoles and the reason is quite simple: "Rockstar is a content company, not a hardware company," GTA writer Dan Houser explained.

"We use the technology we have to create content, and we try not to let ourselves get beholden to the hardware," he told Japanese magazine Famitsu . "The fact that hardware's so mature right now is exactly why we're able to go on to the next level. GTA 4 was our first attempt at a new platform and HD visuals, so the first part of development was seriously difficult."

"Now we know what the hardware's capable of, so it's become a lot easier to move things along and a lot more fun, too. GTA: San Andreas came out at the peak of the PlayStation 2's cycle, and we put out a really good game thanks to that. All the best games for a console come out at the end of the lifecycle, right? So now's the best timing of all."

Grand Theft Auto 5 is scheduled for release next spring on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There is no news about a PC version yet.

Say's someone considerably

Say's someone considerably more illogical. Since when did years of experience developing for a platform stop yielding an increase in production quality? More experience, better implementation, less creative constraints. What a studio chooses to do with that experience artistically is another matter, one far more inconsistent. But one can safely assume that the technological implementation will only improve as the platform matures

If you think she is ugly (not

If you think she is ugly (not to mention its just a cartoon) I have some bad news for you my friend, when you leave your moms basement one day and you blink your eyes seeing the day of light and suddenly you realize that real human woman do not look the same as the woman in porn you have been watching on porntube, you will probably want to kill yourself once you realize how much you wasted your life.
